Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.

    Investing in dividend stocks is generally about generating a reliable income stream. For some it’s a way to live off of your portfolio today without having to tap your capital, while for others it’s about dividend reinvestment over time and the power of compounding. In either case, however, you want to make sure that the dividend is sustainable. On that score, high-yielders Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE:BKS), CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL), and Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) are three dividend stocks I’d never buy. Here’s why.

    Thursday was a bad day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks fell sharply after worries about other financial markets took their toll on stocks. A substantial jump in bond yields has taken the 10-year Treasury to 3.2%, and some investors fear that higher rates could raise financing costs for companies, taking away some of their incentive to invest in further growth. However, even with the downward pressure on the overall market, some stocks had good showings. Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), Paratek Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:PRTK), and Hortonworks (NASDAQ:HDP) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
