I was reading the book "Little Book of Dividends - A Safe Formula for Guaranteed Returns".

This is the filter he calls "Payout Ratio".

/*
Little Book of Big Dividends - Chapter 3 If Einstein was a Dividend Investor

Payout Ratio

Rules from chapter:
- Ignore stocks with payout ratio > 60%
- Find stocks with a Quadrix score above 75
*/

set{ divYear, dividend }
set{earnings, Trailing EPS}

set{payoutRatio, divYear / earnings }
set{shares, 1000/close}
set{myVal, shares * divYear }

payoutRatio below .60

and earnings above 0
and divYear above 0
and myVal above 20
and volume above 100000
and since dividend below 95

set{ CurrDiv, dividend / close }
set{ CurrDivPct, CurrDiv * 100 }

add column dividend yield {div yield}

]

The books seems to give a good strategy for the Dividend focused investor.

Has any read the book or have experience with the BSD formula?

Thanks Yepher this backtests pretty well with 2 stocks/day @ 5K ea, 3% profit stop and rsi(2) cross above 80 exit and the added tweeks. Still no win in the May thru Aug 2011 (black hole). I would also try to exit if close dropped below chandelier exit, although this didn't test well.

market is s&p 500
sort on column 13 descending

@duke56468

Thanks for the information. Does the back test take into account dividends as part of gains or does it only look at stock price?
