Some “Possibles” I’m Watching

    While I pride myself in being somewhat of an advisor to the extended family’s investors, I have not had a record above .500!  There’s certainly been more losers than winners in our stable of stocks and mutual funds.  Normally, this doesn’t affect “the extended’s” investments; I ‘try them on for size‘ before recommending the successful stocks and funds, thus I ‘eat’ the vast majority of the ‘also-rans.’  While some in the family invest for price appreciation, ‘The Young Miss Lovely‘ and I invest for dividend yields; to that end, I’ve been watching a couple of issues:

Cellcom Israel Ltd (CEL)  We’ve owned the company previously for several years.  I don’t recall the purchase or sale prices, nor the dividend yield.  I just remember that we “made a ton’a money on it!”  We’d still own the issue were it not for a delinquent child’s credit card balance.  At today’s (7/26) market close CEL was up 9 cents (1.71%) to $5.35/share, just off it’s 52-week low of $4.35/share.  Also in the past 52 weeks CEL has risen to $26.87/share.  The current dividend is .34/quarter (annual: $1.36/share); annual yield of 25.42%.  While the company can reduce the dividend cash amount, or eliminate the dividend altogether, I’m confident that CEL dividend will remain stable so long as the Israeli-Iranian political turmoil doesn’t ramp up from it’s current levels.

Alumina, LTD (AWC):  We’ve not owned this issue previously, we’re just watching it.  At today’s close AWC was up $0.12 (4.46%) to $2.81/share, just off it’s 52-week low of $2.65/share.  AWC‘s 52-week high is $9.84/share.  The stock has a semi-annual dividend of $0.12 resulting in a annual dividend yield of 8.54%.  As with any issue, AWC could ‘fiddle’ with it’s dividend and thus alter the yield.
