My Snapshot of the Week gives you a short summary of a stock that currently looks particularly interesting to me.
This week’s focus: US chip manufacturer Intel.
My Stock Screener
I use my own stock screener to identify companies that perfectly fit my investment strategy. It determines the attractiveness of a stock based on 4 assessment criteria and finally leads to my personal screening result, which I call Dividend Diary Score.
More information about my stock screening process can be found here:
Companies with a Dividend Diary Score of
- less than -10 rarely make it on my watchlist
- between -10 and +10 qualify itself for my stock screener
- higher than +10 probably end up in my portfolio.
Intel in my Stock Screener
Intel currently scores a positive Dividend Diary Score of +3.8 points.
The high Dividend Diary Score isn’t the result of a particularly low stock price.
However, Intel scores well because of its very strong earnings growth and its robust earnings trend since 2004.
In addition, the US chip manufacturer steadily increased its dividend. Its stock still only yields 2.5%, but the payout ratio remains well below 50%.
Conclusion: Intel is on my Watchlist
Therefore, I already sold a put option with a strike price close to my current price target ($45).
