The following Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) conference call took place on May 4, 2016, 08:30 AM ET. This is a transcript of that earnings call:
5/4/16 3:26PM
Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, on 5/5/16, SJW Corp. will trade ex-dividend, for its quarterly dividend of $0.2025, payable on 6/1/16.
5/3/16 10:10AM
Here's a rundown of five technical setups that are showing solid upside potential right now.
5/3/16 9:35AM
The most recent short interest data has been released for the 04/15/2016 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.

The most recent short interest data has been released for the 04/15/2016 settlement date, which shows a 357,559 share increase in total short interest for WGL Holdings Inc , to 2,433,000, an increase of 17.23% since 03/31/2016. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded.

Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, on 5/4/16, Summit Midstream Partners LP will trade ex-dividend, for its quarterly dividend of $0.575, payable on 5/13/16. As a percentage of SMLP's recent stock price of $20.90, this dividend works out to approximately 2.75%, so look for shares of Summit Midstream Partners LP to trade 2.75% lower — all else being equal — when SMLP shares open for trading on 5/4/16.

The ETFs for bonds, gold and utility stocks led a return to 'risk-off' investment strategies, extending gains over the S&P 500.
