From the screen I ran today, I selected nine companies from the group to list under the heading "Stocks of Interest". These are the stocks that I would be most interested in investing in today. The list below contains the top nine companies in that group. In addition to simply listing the names of these companies, I've also listed their current price, their estimated target price, and their annual dividend distribution amount. I've also made the companies' names hot spots so in the days ahead I can check the then current prices and determine the differences.

The information above by itself can be very helpful to investors like myself in trying to evaluate the investment quality of an individual company. What I like to do in addition to simply looking at the raw dollar amounts is to calculate the estimated one year capital gain percentage, the dividend yield based on todays stock price, and the total (combined) one year percent return on investment. It's one way for me to standardize the comparison across diverse companies. Once this exercise is complete, it's just a simple matter to prioritize the potential investment outcomes based upon their expected percentage return (see below).

1 Yr Tot Return
While this may be a rather shallow or crude analysis, it's just one of many I use and it's a prioritizing exercise for me. It allows me to scope down or sort through a long list of stocks and to zero in on just a few select companies that I can then concentrate on for additional research and analysis. It's just one more way I try to save time and sharpen my focus toward great companies.
Good Luck and Good Trading.
