Abbott was the last company insider to make a buy, with a 10,000 share pickup back in May, at a price about 10 percent higher than where shares now trade. Overall, insiders at the bank have been sellers over the past three years.
- 2 Stocks Paying Dividends Every Week
Hi, I'm Tim Plaehn. I've been studying two new stocks carefully and they've both been paying dividends every week — regular as clockwork.
One’s more aggressive and pays a nickel per share every Friday. The second is expected to yield 3% - 4% in the first year.
And it also pays every Thursday. We can use these two new ETFs to pay for our groceries, gas or restaurant bills.
Or, reinvest the dividends and quickly snowball our nest eggs to help meet our retirement goals.
Today, I want to share this information with you, absolutely free.
The stock is down about 25 percent in the past year, even as earnings have only shrunk by about 10 percent. Revenue has held up well, and the bank has a profit margin of nearly 29 percent, above the industry average in general.
Action to take: Shares are fairly inexpensive at 9 times forward earnings. Zion is worth accumulating near current prices, and the company pays a dividend of 3.2 percent with a history of growth in the payout that can reward patient investors over time.
For traders, shares seems to have bottomed out in the high-$40 to low-$50 range. From here, a further rally in the months ahead is likely. The April 2023 $60 calls, last going for about $1.40, offer high-double-digit return potential in the months ahead on a bounce higher in shares.
