10 Best High Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2017

Stocks tumbled again today with falling oil prices getting the blame. But who are we kidding? Volatility begets more volatility, and that’s what we seem to have on our hands.

Michael Nagle/Bloomberg News

The S&P 500 dropped 1.5% to 2,127.02 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 258.32, or 1.4%. The Nasdaq Composite finished off 1.1% to 5,155.25.

Remember yesterday, a dovish Fed Governor helped stocks shoot higher. Deutsche Bank’s Alan Ruskin finds it interesting that it hasn’t had a bigger impact:

On the surface, the interesting aspect of the deflated set of Fed hike expectations is how little this has helped global risk appetite. However, it is hard to prove the counterfactual on what equities would have done had market expectations of a hike been on the rise post-Brainard – but very likely risky assets would have been meaningfully weaker. Nonetheless, the message from the way risk has traded is that for risky assets to rally they seem to need more than a dovish Fed. From a technical standpoint that probably means the S&P regaining its breakdown closing low levels ~2170 as a prerequisite for the global risk rally to resume momentum.

    Wendy Maeda/The Boston Globe via Getty Images NEW YORK — Walgreen is moving 120,000 employees to a private health insurance exchange from coverage provided directly from carriers, the company will announce Wednesday. The pharmacy chain will join 17 other large employers on the Aon Hewitt Corporate Health Exchange as part of a growing movement to offer employees fixed dollar amounts to purchase their own plans on such exchanges. The end-cost to employees depends on the plan chosen, but they typically get more options than under traditional arrangements. Private exchanges mimic the coverage mandated as part of the Affordable Care Act. Enrollment in the public exchanges starts Oct. 1. “What happens to employer contributions over time? Will they put in as much as they put in the past? These are unanswered questions but potential negatives,” says Paul Fronstin, a senior research associate with the Employee Benefit Research Institute. The benefit to Walgreen and other employers is unknown at this point, as their cost-savings aren’t clear. Of the 180,000 Walgreen (WAG) employees eligible for health care insurance, 120,000 opted for coverage for themselves and 40,000 family members. Another 60,000 employees, many of them working part-time, weren’t eligible for health insurance. Aon Hewitt (AON) says other participants in its program include retailer Sears Holding (SHLD) and Darden Restaurants (DRI). These new additions raise enrollment to 330,000 from 100,000 last year, and Aon Hewitt estimates enrollment will jump to 600,000 next year, a fivefold increase from 2012. By 2017, nearly 20 percent of employees nationwide could get their health insurance through a private exchange, according to Accenture Research (ACN). A recent report by the National Business Group on Health said that 30 percent of large employers are considering moving active employees to exchanges by 2015. Other major providers of private exchanges include Mercer, a division of Marsh & Mc

    UBS analyst Steven Fisher and Cleve Rueckert note that Joy Global’s (JOY) “cash flow has helped reduce credit risk,” but still rate it a Sell. They explain why:

    Joy Global

    We think the near-term credit picture has improved, but we think JOY still needs an earnings recovery to support debt reduction. We still see fundamental risk to coal and broader mining capex for 2017, and with 77% of the implied value based on future growth, we think the shares are pricing in too optimistic a recovery in earnings.

    Oil sands booking in 2018 positive, but outlook weak for US coal in 2H16, 2017 JOY’s bookings in FQ2 were better than expected, and it cited some progress on company-specific initiatives. Still, management indicated that bookings are lumpy and likely to come down in 2H vs. 2Q. JOY also noted that a weak mining capex outlook is restraining growth expectations for 2017. While JOY raised its FY16 cash flow outlook by 5-10%, JOY has $1 billion in debt coming due over the next 5 years (2019 and 2021). We don’t expect JOY to pay it down entirely (some likely to be termed out), but we do think JOY needs more cash flow to reduce debt to lower levels in the event that there is an extended mining downturn…

    We are raising our price target to $11, from $8, to reflect a slightly higher EV/EBITDA multiple (~8x; was 7.5x; higher commodity price environment and less credit risk) and higher 2017E EBITDA ($225m; was $215m).

    Shares of Joy Global have gained 1.2% to $22.49 at 3:39 p.m. today, nearly double Caterpillar’s (CAT) 0.6% rise to $76.91. Deere (DE) has dropped 0.1% to $87.40.

Advisors’ Opinion:


    We’re starting things off with Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASX), a Taiwan-based chipmaker. Overwhelmingly, overseas stocks have been lagging the broad market here at home — but that hasn’t been the case at Advanced Semiconductor. In fact, this $10 billion chip stock is up more than 30% since the calendar flipped to January. But investors should think about taking their gains here; ASX is starting to look toxic for your portfolio.

    That’s because ASX is currently forming a descending triangle pattern, a bearish price setup that’s formed by downtrending resistance above shares, and horizontal support to the downside at $5.80. Basically, as ASX bounces in between those two technical price levels, it’s getting squeezed closer to a breakdown below its $5.80 price floor — if that line in the sand gets violated, then Advanced Semiconductor is a sell.

    For short sellers, the most recent high at the $6.40 level is a logical place to park a protective stop.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Where we are concerned: 1. Ex-Joint Strike Fighter portfolio is average. There are few major growth differentiators after F-35; and actually headwinds in Aeronautics specifically, including C-5 and F-16. 2. Consensus EPS and cash flow estimate headwinds. The final Leidos Holdings (LDOS)-Lockheed Martin numbers are likely dilutive to 2016, so guidance will come down. The $1.5bn 2018 cash pension contribution means lower 2018 free cash and a weaker 5-year cash trajectory than peers. 3. Valuation tough. Lockheed Martin trades at 24X CY17E P/E ex pension. While we shy away from valuation concerns at the trough of the Defense cycle, this is more expensive than other Defense stocks.
