Big assumption but once inventory is realigned, GPS will improve going forward or be taken over

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

I green-thumbed this stock a while back, but added a RL position today at $37.50.

With ROA and ROE numbers that smoke most retailers, I think Gap represents great value at a price per share of $37.50 and a P/E of 13.5. They have multiple brand names that are very successful, and have proven that even in relatively bad retail environments they know how to outperform the competition.

Per my favorite chart in the intelligent investor, a stock trading at a 13.5 P/E needs to only grow earnings about 1.5% per year, and I think with the brand mix that The Gap now owns that should be fairly easy.

From the fiscal year ended January 2010 until now, The Gap has reduced the number of diluted outstanding shares from 700M to 468M. Even though the dividend has doubled over that same time frame (growing from $0.10 per quarter to $0.20 per quarter, currently at a 2.15% yield), the annual cash outlay has only risen from $240M to about $300M. The payout ratio is still a small 25% of earnings. This is a wonderful example of how share buybacks can do great things for shareholders.

Management's dedication toward buybacks leaves me to welcome short-term pullbacks in the stock price, as that will certainly reduce the number of outstanding shares even more.

No one shops here. I've visited GAP stores in CA and NV, and unless it's a GAP outlet having a huge sale, then most times they're empty. Fashion trends depend upon popularity and GAP stopped being popular a while ago. Same goes with Abercrombie, Pac Sun, and American Eagle.

If you have to plop money on anything, then give Buckle a look through. Not a perfect stock, but better growth potential, management and dividend.

The brand seems under pressure from the likes of JCrew and H&M, but thanks to recent partnerships, Banana Republic is looking up.

I like how their pants fit. Boot cut. I'm not quite cool enough for tapered.

Every year the GAP stores in my community continue to make bad decisions. They carry out-of-date styles, poor colors, don't have enough of the right inventory, have too much of the wrong inventory, and miss every decent opportunity for children's clothing by failing to trot out cute outfits around holidays. Any company with this sort of steady decline in quality is going to suffer.

Recent strategic planning changes will make a positive difference in supply chain and mfg-ing, squeezing out inefficiencies and adding nimbleness to reacting to the market.. And the group is already seeing benefits of 2011 design modifications. I see a modest but meaningful uptick in this stock over the next year or two--maybe stock price up to 25 or 26 by 1/2013.

Cash flow is impressive - a leader if the economy picks up. Cost cutting measures should start seeing dividends.
