Last Friday, we ran a little experiment and I let you vote on a few dividend stocks. You can find the June 2017 Stock Poll here. I was hoping for a little larger turnout that participated but I am still happy to get some good data and view points. As of today, I closed the polls and am ready to announce the results!
Looks like it was an even race and only a few votes distinguished a winner from the rest of the pack. As shown above, coming in first was CSCO. I have seen a lot of activity in the community recently buying them. I was a little surprised to see QCOM still in second. They have gone up in price recently but they still have great value at current levels. I figured T and GIS would be high on the list. Have seen a lot of activity recently from them as well.
Looking over the stats, I would have to agree with the rankings by the community. Maybe change up the order one or two, but all in all a similar ranking. I can tell you I made a small purchase of one of the companies from this poll earlier this week. Stay tuned to find out who.
I want to say thank you to everyone who participated in the poll and provided feedback. I hope everyone enjoyed this little exercise. The main response I received back was that there was not enough choices. Guess you were just having too much fun and wanted to keep going! I figured we would keep it short the first time around. I would love to do something like this again in the near future. Either monthly or every few months. But that is up to you.
Did you enjoy the exercise? What did you like/ not like? Is there any improvements to be made or ways to make it better/ more fun for everyone? What is the ideal number of choices you would like on the list? Any other companies you think should have made the list that I should add for next time? And most importantly, would you participate again?
