Stocks – Reviewing May, ready for June

Portfolio Review

We review the portfolio performance for May. FX posted good gains, stocks lost ground but we were hampered by one crypto trade that was significantly out of the money by the time the end of month came.

Top Stocks For June

Data – Focused on Income Payers

US Top Dividend Yields

Dividend yield is a key ratio for Income Investors. Dividend yield represents the stock’s latest annual dividend as a percentage of the current stock price.
Whilst both the stock price and the dividend of a company change over time, the ratio is a good starting point to compare the relative valuation of different stocks, especially if you are looking for an indication of which companies could pay a consistent level of stock income in your portfolio regardless of market performance.

Here are the Top 20 Highest US Dividend Yields (as of 30/05/22)

UK Dividend Yields

FX – Taking Advantage Of Short Term USD Weakness

Trade of the Week – Short GBPUSD

We are going short GBPUSD at 1.2570, targeting a move back down to the May lows circa 1.2160.

Momentum has stalled in the pair around the 1.2600 area, as we flagged in our TechTalks piece on the currency last week. Given that this appears to have exhausted attempts to move higher, the break lower today (down 0.66%) appears to be confirmation to us that the pair is heading lower.
