TSX 60 Ex Dividend Date + How I Beat the Market by 2.74% After 2 Months



At the beginning of each month, I recap the dividend yield and ex dividend dates for the TSX 60. In addition to this recap, I decided to cover briefly the results of my Best 2013 Dividend Stock Book. This book includes 30 stock analyses (20 US and 10 CDN) for only $2.99. So far, my results are:

20 US Dividend Stocks: +9.89% (thats a killer!)

10 CDN Dividend Stocks: + 5.12%

Best 2013 Dividend Stock Results


At the beginning of the year, I produced a list of Best dividend stocks for 2013 (click on the link to get my metrics and see the list). Out of this exhaustive list, I pulled out 30 stocks to be my “favorite” picks. They are not stock recommendations and I strongly suggest you do your own analysis and read their financial statements. This book is simply a compilation of my own stock analyses for 30 stocks either held in my portfolio or on my watch list.


I’ve broken down the result per market:

Added Value2.74%1.00%

In the middle of February, I wrote an article about 35 dividend stocks on fire. They were the most profitable stocks after 5 weeks of trading in 2013. Out of the top 35, I had 5 stocks from my own selection:

Seagate Technology (STX)

CA inc. (CA)

Safeway (SWY)

Mattel (MAT)

Heinz (HNZ)


I didn’t run the screener again for the end of the month of February, but it seems that Campbell Soup (CPB) & General Mills (GIS) could be part of this list now that they have benefited from the Heinz purchase buzz. After 2 months, I have 8 stocks showing price growth over 10% without counting dividends.


The average portfolio is showing an amazing return of 9.89% that is 2.74% over my benchmark (VIG with 7.15%). Oh! Did I mention that my portfolio also produced 1% more in dividend yield than VIG? ;-).


If you want to learn more about these companies, you should buy my book for only $2.99:

My results are not as impressive on the Canadian market. I don’t have any big misses so far but have some mild results with National Bank (NA), Calian Technologies (CTY), Emera (EMA) and Evertz Technologies (ET). Both the TSX 60 and my benchmark (XDV) are showing returns over 3% while these five stocks haven’t even reached 2% on average.


On the other hand, I have 4 stocks beating the index by a lot (Andrew Peller, Royal Bank, Telus & Rogers). Overall, I’m beating my benchmark by a small 0.08% and trailing in dividend yield by 0.19% after 2 months. I’m not trailing by much at the moment and I’m fairly confident I can bounce back in the upcoming months!

    “I don’t have any big misses so far”

    Wish I could say the same, got into Penngrowth, seduced by the dividend yeild. Down some 26% so far, suppose if they maintain the dividend I’ll be ok.

    Thankfully it only represents a small percentage of my stocks but still.
