Snatch This Bargain Dividend Stock Even Cheaper Than Director Kapoor Did
By Dividend Channel Staff, Friday, November 18, 11:10 AM ET
There's an old saying on Wall Street about insider buying: there are many possible reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy. Back on June 3, CA Inc's Director, Rohit Kapoor, invested $453,960.00 into 20,000 shares of CA, for a cost per share of $22.70. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money.
In trading on Friday, bargain hunters could buy shares of CA Inc (NASDAQ:CA) and achieve a cost basis 10.9% cheaper than Kapoor, with shares changing hands as low as $20.22 per share. It should be noted that Kapoor has collected $0.05/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently down 10.7% on their purchase from a total return basis. CA Inc shares are currently trading off about 0.7% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of CA shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, CA's low point in its 52 week range is $18.61 per share, with $25.68 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $20.34. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:
The current annualized dividend paid by CA Inc is $0.20/share, currently paid in quarterly installments, and its most recent dividend ex-date was on 11/18/2011. Below is a long-term dividend history chart for CA, which can be of good help in judging whether the most recent dividend with approx. 1.0% annualized yield is likely to continue.
CA makes up 7.49% of the Software HOLDRS ETF (NYSE:SWH)
CA operates in the Application Software sector, among companies like Akamai Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:AKAM) which is off about 0.8% today, and Informatica Corp. (NASDAQ:INFA) trading lower by about 1.8%. Below is a three month price history chart comparing the stock performance of CA, versus AKAM and INFA.
