What is a “Buy Zone”?

Once we have decided that we want to purchase a particular stock, we look for a low-risk entry point to open (or add to) the position.  We scan the charts of our top-rated stocks daily looking for strong levels of support (both technical and fundamental). These levels of support form what we call our “Buy Zones”, which are points at which long-term dividend investors should feel comfortable starting to build a position in the respective stocks.  We focus on four key levels of support when determining a “Buy Zone”:

  • Technical – Support from short and long-term trend lines
  • Volatility – Target correction levels based on historical volatility and draw down
  • Valuation – Support levels based on historical valuation multiples
  • Yield – Support levels based on forward dividend yield

If you are a new dividend investor and are building your DIY Dividend Portfolio from scratch, don’t feel pressured to have a fully diversified portfolio on day one.  Dividend investing is a marathon, not a sprint.  It’s extremely important to be patient when building a long-term portfolio…we can’t stress that enough.
