CBOE Holdings Extended From Recent Surge


While most investors buy income stocks for their dividends, a number of issues from recent Income Investor columns have gone on to strong gains.

CBOE Holdings ( CBOE ) has been on a tear since clearing a 41.10 buy point from a three-weeks-tight add-on pattern June 7. It ramped up as much as 24%, which puts it in profit-taking zone. In most cases, investors should take at least partial profits once they amount to 20% or more.

On Tuesday, the derivatives exchange operator lifted its quarterly dividend by 20% to 18 cents a share. The stock has a 1.4% yield. CBOE was featured June 3 . The company, which has a hit product in its VIX futures, reports results before Friday's open.

VF Corp. ( VFC ) hasn't made as dramatic of a move as CBOE, but it has still gained more than 7% since being profiled in the June 14 edition . The stock is near a record high, but is extended from a second rebound off its 10-week line. It has yet to form another base after breaking out from a cup in April.

The clothing maker pays a dividend of $3.48 a share annually. It has a yield of about 1.8%.

Last month, VFC delivered a 14% increase in its Q2 earnings and raised its full-year profit outlook.

Home Depot ( HD ) has seen some volatility since being featured in the June 11 column . The world's biggest home improvement retailer is tied to the housing market, which recently saw a dip in pending sales due partly to higher mortgage rates.

The stock has bounced back after falling 11% from its May 22 peak. Home Depot has also formed a cup-with-handle base with an 81.33 buy point. But Home Depot's pattern is a third-stage structure.

Home Depot pays a dividend of $1.56 a share annually, which works out to a yield of about 2%.
