Both Chevron (CVX ) and Apple (AAPL ) had positive earnings announcements and have an ex-dividend date that is nearing very soon. Even though Chevron yields higher than Apple, it lost its spot in the Most Watched Stocks List. Lately, Apple has also been leading our charts in terms of search query volume as highlighted here.
3 Reasons why Apple moved up in investors’ watchlists:
- The company announced stellar results of $1.67 of EPS vs. expected results of $1.57 per share.
- Stock goes ex-dividend on August 10 with a dividend of $0.63 per share.
- The only stock in “FANG” that pays a dividend.
This week also saw Omega Healthcare (OHI ) continue to move up in the Most Watched Stocks List for a second week in a row. Two best dividend stocks also kept their upward movement in the list, while monthly dividend payer Realty Income Group (O ) climbed up the list.
