The Bottom Line
We had removed shares of CME from our recommended list back on May 6, when the stock was trading at $324.67. The company has a 1.62% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $283.51. The stock has technical support in the $270 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $294-$297 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now.
