Best Safest Stocks To Invest In 2021

The benefit of being a conglomerate is that some businesses may offset weakness in other units over the course of the business cycle. Without argument, the conglomerate can also prevent a company from being taken down by a single business unit. In the case of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE), it turns out that breaking up the conglomerate is the new strategy now that it has been kicked out of the Dow Jones industrial average.

GE has completed its strategic review and the conglomerate’s path forward is to focus on Aviation, Power and Renewable Energy. GE has also confirmed that the company is spinning off its Healthcare unit to shareholders. Approximately 20% of the new equity will remain at GE, and the other 80% or so will go directly to shareholders.

GE Healthcare is now led by Kieran Murphy, who comes from a background in the faster-growing biological production equipment. It is also no secret that GE has been an acquirer of health care assets and companies over the years.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) offers an even more attractive yield at 7.5%, which it can comfortably cover with cash flow. However, unlike the others on this list, Crestwood Equity doesn’t expect to increase its payout this year. That’s because the MLP currently plans to plow all its excess cash into its growing slate of expansion projects, which should give the company the fuel to grow its cash flow at a more-than-15% annual rate through 2020. Once it’s past this heavy investment phase, Crestwood Equity should be in a better position to return more cash to investors. In the meantime, it offers a sustainable high yield with some enticing upside.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) is in the midst of a multi-year strategy to improve its financial profile even as it restarts its growth engine. That plan has already paid dividends for investors as the company generated high-end results in 2018, which enabled it to deliver market-crushing total returns.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) was the top-performing master limited partnership (MLP) of 2018 by a landslide. The midstream company generated a total return of 17% last year, which was well ahead of the negative-12.7% total return of the average MLP as measured by the Alerian MLP ETF. That outperformance has continued in 2019, as Crestwood has generated a more than 23% total return through the first month and a half, which has outpaced the 18% total return of its peers in the Alerian MLP ETF.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

I really have an active dislike for the term “blue-chip stock.”

Plain and simple: the term is outdated. A lot of large-cap familiar names are still called “blue-chip stock” when they are nothing of the kind. If you can’t rid the term “blue-chip stock” from your lexicon, then it should at least apply to a whole new stream of companies.

“Blue-chip stock” used to refer to companies that were constantly growing earnings in the high single-digits or more in terms of percentage, had a fortress balance sheet and were constantly innovating. The seven stocks I’m about to talk about have either none of these traits or, at best, have a really solid balance sheet.
