Fastenal (FAST) Offering Possible 8.7% Return Over the Next 28 Calendar Days

This article was originally published on this site

Fastenal’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Fastenal is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $47.50 short call and a strike $52.50 long call offers a potential 8.7% return on risk over the next 28 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $47.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.40 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.60 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $52.50 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Fastenal is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Fastenal is bearish.

The Argus Dividend Growth Portfolio

Often overlooked amid the market’s gyrations, dividend income is an important element of total return. Consider recent results: in 2015, the S&P 500 delivered a total return of 1.4%, including dividends — but excluding dividends, the market was down 0.7%. Capital gains were a bit easier to achieve in 2016-17, though we note that dividend payments still contributed about 15%-20% of total return for investors. And dividend payments softened the blow in 2018, when most market indices declined as the Federal Reserve hiked rates. Between 1930 and 2012, dividend income accounted for 42% of total return of the S&P 500, according to Morgan Stanley. Not all dividends are created equal, though, and it is important to understand the difference between high-yield stocks and dividend-growth stocks, particularly in a slow-growth or recessionary economic environment.
