Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now

Today, I’m going to warn you about five stocks with yields of 7% or more that should be avoided at all costs. They are my next “dividend disaster” candidates that are likely to either reduce their payouts, or lose 20% or more in price, or both.

Big current yields have nothing to do with safety. Consider these year-to-date performances from high-yielding companies that started 2017 with juicy yields, but at some point cut or suspended their dividends:

Windstream: Yielded 7.5%, lost 75% Mattel: Yielded 5.5%, lost 45% GNC: Yielded 7%, lost 26%

I warned you to sell Mattel late last year, before its dividend cut. If you owned it at the time, I hope you followed my advice.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    For investors looking to put new money to work in a defense prime today, I’d recommend General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) over either Raytheon or Northrop Grumman. General Dynamics currently trades at a 20% discount to its rivals on a price-to-earnings basis and at a 13% discount on a price-to-sales basis due to continued weakness in its business jet division. There’s more risk to General Dynamics, but there is also more potential upside should it get its aerospace business on track and close that valuation gap.

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now: Scana Corporation(SCG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP®, Neha Chamaria, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Granted, Dominion Energy’s payout of around 70% is at the higher end, but it shouldn’t be tough for the utility to maintain dividends given the highly regulated nature of its revenue. Of late, the market has been concerned about a couple of developments, including Dominion’s impending acquisition of SCANA Corp. (NYSE: SCG) and its planned funding route that is now in the reworks because of regulatory changes.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Investing in utilities is usually a pretty boring affair, with the main attraction normally being a reliable quarterly dividend payment. Recent events at SCANA Corporation (NYSE:SCG), however, have been anything but boring. Dominion Energy could be the company’s savior, but not if the government gets in the way.

However, you have to look past the yield when you weigh an investment, because all dividends are not created equal. Today, for example, utility SCANA Corp.

The week got off to a rocky start for the company after JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa said that GE is the most expensive stock in its sector of the market. The implication, of course, is that the share price has to fall even further.

A second, and more devastating, implication is that the company’s dividend will have to be cut a little, slashed or eliminated. The JPMorgan team does not believe that GE’s 2018 earnings per share forecast of $1.00 to $1.07 has a chance of becoming reality. A “more realistic” estimate, they say, is $0.50 a share.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks For 2019: ONEOK Inc.(OKE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The transaction follows a similar blueprint of other recent ones in the sector. One of the most successful has been ONEOK’s (NYSE:OKE) acquisition of its MLP last year. Shares of the midstream giant have surged more than 27% since the company announced that transaction. One of the drivers has been ONEOK’s broad appeal to investors because it not only offers them yield — in this case nearly 5% — but a lot of growth given its view that it can increase its dividend 9% to 11% annually through 2021. Those dual value creators put the company in a class of its own.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    However, you could happily add ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) without facing any of those issues, because this midstream company is structured as a regular corporation. Although ONEOK’s yield of 4.8% is a little lower than Enterprise’s, it shares a lot of the partnership’s most desirable traits.

    The volatile price of natural gas over the past year has weighed some on this top energy stock. ONEOK Inc.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks For 2019: United Parcel Service Inc.(UPS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    The announcement that Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) is inviting budding entrepreneurs to become Amazon Delivery Service Partners as part of its crowdsourcing delivery model will naturally concern investors in United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) and FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX). But is it really that big of a threat? In reality, it could turn out to be more of a help than a hindrance and stockholders in the package delivery giants should not be unduly worried. Here are three reasons why.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and its shipping partners FedEx (NYSE:FDX) and UPS (NYSE:UPS) continue to downplay how much they compete with each other, even in the face of indisputable evidence that Amazon is trying to poach shipping business from third-party merchants on its platform. FedEx CEO Fred Smith said that FedEx doesn’t see Amazon “as a peer competitor at this point in time” last year, for instance. Meanwhile, UPS CEO David Abney at long last admitted the competitive threat that Amazon poses in an interview with Business Insider last week.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, AAPL, EL
    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) plunged 7% after JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) slashed its price target for the automaker. JPM cut its December 2018 price target for TSLA stock from $308 to $195 per share, sighting Musk’s inconsistent statements about company funding. That would be a 36% collapse from Friday’s closing price. The news comes as Elon Musk continues to make a series of questionable Tweets about himself and his company. China is coming down on Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). According to state media reports, Tim Cook’s company has pulled about 25,000 illegal lottery applications from its application store in China. The news comes as China continues clamp down on illegal apps that sold lottery tickets or provided gambling services. Estee Lauder Co. Inc. (NYSE: EL) shares were off 0.3% after the cosmetics giant reported earnings before the bell. The firm reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.61. That figure topped analysts’ expectations by $0.05. The downturn came due to the firm’s weaker-than-expected quarterly forecast and news that it will incur larger marketing costs for a number of new product initiatives. Look for earnings reports from Fabrinet (NYSE: FN) and Nordson Corp. (Nasdaq: NDSN).

Top 10 Dividend Stocks For 2019: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Whiteman: It is. The big guns, so to speak, are the names you mentioned, Lockheed Martin being the biggest with an $85 billion market cap. Then, there’s a handful of other companies that are focused mostly on weapons platforms — your General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), Northrop Grumman, Raytheon. The Boeing defense business is only 20% of the company, but it’s still a huge contractor. 

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) has been the “wait ’til next year” story of the defense industry for several years now. The company’s initial guidance for 2019 suggests that investors are going to need to be patient a while longer.

  • [By ]

    Cramer and Moreno also looked at General Dynamics (GD) which peaked in early March, before starting a downtrend until Tuesday. Last week, General Dynamics fell to the lower end of its channel, but then it bounced right to the high end, and Wednesday it firmly broke out above the high end of this channel. The stochastic oscillator, which is a powerful momentum indicator is making a bullish crossover, and based on today’s move, Moreno thinks General Dynamics can return to its old highs at $230.

Top Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

By Oisin Breen, Research

In line with previous articles we’ve written, and paraphrasing Buffett, it’s always interesting to consider investing behind the things you know. This article, motivated by a curiosity into firms supporting the deep-sea cable infrastructure that drives the internet, focuses on technological infrastructure firm TE Connectivity (TEL) that does just that, and a whole lot more. TE is a components manufacturer operating in a range of industries. 2017 has been a good year for the firm, and as investors continue to seek both value and growth in the market, unheralded infrastructure stocks available cheaply, relative to earnings, may continue to see their share prices climb in 2018.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Ross Stores (ROST ) saw its stock price pop marginally on Wednesday as part of a month-long climb that has seen shares of the off-price clothing retailer surge nearly 6%. Now, let’s see if Ross’ run looks poised to continue by taking a quick look at its first-quarter earnings outlook.

Over the last year, shares of Ross have surged nearly 33%, outpacing its industry’s climb of roughly 23%—which includes the likes of Burlington Stores (BURL ) and TJX Companies (TJX ) . Ross also crushed the S&P 500’s 13.4% climb.

With that said, Ross stock could stall if the company reports lower-than-expected first quarter financial results Thursday. Ross might be under even more pressure since fellow brick-and-mortar retailers Macy’s (M), Nordstrom (JWN ) , J.C. Penny (JCP ) , Kohl’s (KSS ) , and Target (TGT ) have all reported their Q1 earnings, with mixed results. This means investors need to pay close attention to Ross’ most up-to-date top and bottom line estimates.

    The stock market had a mildly positive day on Friday, and gains of between 0.1% and 0.3% were common for most of the major benchmark indexes. Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally. Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), PolarityTE (NASDAQ:COOL), and Evolus (NASDAQ:EOLS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2019

It’s been a rough ride for gold. Traders and speculators have spent 2018 dumping gold as interest rates have risen. After all, gold won’t ever pay interest or dividends. Some central banks have been expected sellers of gold rather than buyers in 2018. And finding a gold bug who is very enthusiastic about gold is becoming a chore.

With gold having dropped from over $1,350 per ounce earlier in 2018 to under $1,200 of late, how on earth can analysts and investors maintain a positive view on gold miners? It turns out that the markets are still maintaining their effort of trying to discount current news with a view of what is likely to occur in the future. And this brings the point to the major gold stocks: Is there still value in gold miners even if the underlying commodity is in the toilet?

Gold miners have had to endure a lot in their quest to mine gold at profitable levels in recent years. Uprisings and local political issues can arise, and environmental issues are more than obvious risks. Wage pressures continue. And many traditional gold buyers may simply be seeking gold-alternatives or are just buying less gold. And the rising dollar certainly hasn’t helped matters this year. The geopolitical risks also haven’t been strong enough to force investors and speculators into what some deem the ultimate safety trade. And cryptocurrencies haven’t exactly been sucking away all the interest in this hard asset.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2019: ONEOK Inc.(OKE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Pipeline giant ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) is a one-of-a-kind investment opportunity these days. Of the 500 companies in the S&P 500, it’s the only one that meets five distinct characteristics of size, financial strength, earnings growth, dividend growth, and yield. That unique combination makes it an excellent choice for investors who want both high growth and a high yield.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) is off to a fast start in 2018. The pipeline and processing giant has benefited from the improvement in the oil market because drillers are completing more wells, which are flowing into its system. However, as good as the first quarter was, it’s only the beginning for investors, which management made clear on the accompanying conference call with the following points:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    However, you could happily add ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) without facing any of those issues, because this midstream company is structured as a regular corporation. Although ONEOK’s yield of 4.8% is a little lower than Enterprise’s, it shares a lot of the partnership’s most desirable traits.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Several pipeline stocks have produced market-beating returns since their formation. Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) stand out because they have turned a relatively small up-front investment into a massive windfall over the past two decades.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Tallgrass Energy currently expects to close its acquisition of Tallgrass Energy Partners by the end of the second quarter. Once that deal closes, the combined company should cover Tallgrass’ 9%-yielding dividend with cash flow by more than 1.2 times. Furthermore, that company will generate very predictable cash flow going forward since 97% will come from long-term, fee-based contracts. Those are both solid numbers for a pipeline company. For comparison’s sake, Tallgrass’ coverage ratio will roughly match that of pipeline giant ONEOK (NYSE:OKE), which currently gets about 90% of its cash flow from predictable sources like fee-based contracts.

    The volatile price of natural gas over the past year has weighed some on this top energy stock. ONEOK Inc.

    Markets are keeping a close eye on the 10-year bond, which is hovering near 3% – an important psychological level that is likely to influence future price movements. On Monday, Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” asked Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald if investors should be worried. Here’s what Keith had to say about the 10-year Treasury yield… and how it will affect your stocks and bonds in the future.
    The price of Brent crude oil topped $75.00 and hit its highest level since November 2014. Oil traders were eyeing the ongoing efforts of OPEC and Russia to reduce excessive production around the globe, rising demand ahead of peak driving season, and the possibility that the Trump administration will slap Iran with a new round of sanctions.

    Shares of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) seesawed in pre-market hours. The online search giant topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations after the bell Monday. However, shares were off 0.5% after executives announced that its business costs were on the rise. The firm’s real estate and computer purchases tripled in one year, to $7.3 billion.

China’s top-performing drugmaker stock may be about to head even higher.

At least eight brokers lifted their price targets on CSPC Pharmaceutical Group Ltd. after the company reported a 43 percent surge in first-quarter profit on Friday. The result beat the market’s already high expectations, according to Credit Suisse Group AG, which raised its target by 24 percent — the most bullish among analysts tracked by Bloomberg. The stock has surged more than 65 percent this year, the best performer on the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index.

“The re-rating of CSPC will continue this year because it has a strong pipeline,” said Alex Jiang, senior analyst at UOB-Kay Hian Ltd., who raised his target on the company by 6 percent to HK$29.02. The company management said on a call Friday it plans to launch in the second half a popular cancer drug, or so-called PD-1, along with three other important generic drugs, according to Jiang.

    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks. I say most because Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Apache (NYSE:APA), and Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) are flat to down so far this year because investors seem to have overlooked them entirely. Because of that, they trade for a dirt-cheap valuation versus their peers, making them intriguing options to consider.

    The IEA’s forecast bodes well for oil stocks, especially those that have underperformed during the rally over the past year. Two that stand out are Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) and Apache (NYSE:APA), since both have lost value even though oil has been red-hot. Because of that, they trade at dirt cheap valuations versus their peers. That underperformance doesn’t make sense given the growth these companies can deliver at much lower oil prices.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The tax bill passed by the House and Senate still hasn’t been signed by President Trump. But one blue chip company, FedEx, is already touting the potential for a nearly $1.5 billion increase in annual profits due to lower corporate taxes.

FedEx reported its latest quarterly results after the closing bell Tuesday, before the Senate voted to approve the bill.

But the shipping giant told investors in its earnings release that its annual profits for fiscal 2018 could increase by $4.40 to $5.50 a share, mainly due to a change in how it values deferred tax liabilities as well as the cut in the corporate tax rate to 21%.

The lower tax rate on its own will lead earnings to be as much as $1 share higher, FedEx said.

FedEx has about 268.2 million total shares outstanding. So a possible $5.50 per share boost from lower taxes would translate to a $1.48 billion bump in annual earnings. Shares of FedEx (FDX) rose more than 3% on the news, hitting an all-time high.

    Monday began the week on a solid note for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting another triple-digit gain as the Nasdaq Compositeclosed at a record high. Despite ongoing nervousness regarding trade, most investors remain convinced that the strong U.S. economy will be able to lead the way forward, pointing to Friday’s employment report as the latest evidence of sustainable momentum. Good news regarding a host of companies both in the U.S. and abroad also helped buoy the market’s mood. Fossil Group (NASDAQ:FOSL), Companhia Siderurgica Nacional (NYSE:SID), and Immunomedics (NASDAQ:IMMU) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Invest In Right Now

With upward pressure on the pound abating, investors may find more to like in U.K. stocks.

For much of this year, currency appreciation — a drag on the overseas earnings of global stocks that dominate the FTSE 100 Index — has overshadowed the gauge. That burden eased on Friday as the government reported first-quarter growth figures that missed estimates, weakening the case for a rate increase. The pound dropped the most in almost six months, while the FTSE 100 jumped to the highest since the beginning of February.

Beyond the currency fog, there’s much to like in U.K. stocks, according to a growing number of equities analysts. To begin with, a local market called “unloved and de-rated” by Citigroup Inc. is cheap by historical standards, with the highest dividend yield across all major benchmarks. Forecasts for dividends per share in the coming year are also near the highest since 2005, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Invest In Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil prices have been on fire over the past year and recently topped $70 a barrel, which is the highest crude has been since late 2014. That rally in the oil market has helped fuel big-time gains in many oil stocks. Three that stand out are Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Hess (NYSE:HES), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) because each has risen more than 20% this year. They might still have additional upside from here given that all three plan on spending billions of dollars to buy back more of their stock.

  • [By Spencer Israel]

    Oil companies were popular sells for the month, including ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), BP p.l.c. (NYSE: BP), and Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) all net sold. Investors also net sold Alcoa Corp. (NYSE: AA), Starbucks Corporation (NYSE: CMG). and Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) in the midst of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is one of these leaders. The U.S. oil giant announced a multi-billion-dollar buyback in late 2016, which has helped catapult its stock 55% higher since then, vastly outperforming the nearly 23% gain from the iShares U.S. Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (NYSEMKT:IEO), which holds more than 60 U.S.-focused oil and gas stocks. Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), meanwhile, has rallied almost 60% since unveiling a multi-billion-dollar buyback last fall, doubling the return of the iShares E&P ETF.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The sheer size of Devon’s buyback has the potential to move the stock meaningfully higher over the next year, given what similar repurchase programs have done for rivals in the recent past. In late 2016, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) announced plans to repurchase $3 billion in shares that it would fund by selling assets. The company completed that authorization last year and added another $2 billion to the program for 2018.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Several other oil companies have also steadily increased cash returns to shareholders in the last year. ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), for example, initially expected to repurchase $3 billion in stock through 2019. But after selling a boatload of assets last year, the company bought back that entire amount in 2017. So the company said it would buy back $1.5 billion per year through 2020, increasing its overall authorization to $7.5 billion. However, thanks to improving oil prices, the company has already boosted 2018’s buyback by $500 million — along with increasing its dividend 7.5%. And it could raise its repurchase authorization again given where crude prices are these days, and the fact that the company is on pace to achieve its debt-reduction target a year early.

    Whittier Trust Co. grew its holdings in ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) by 15.8% in the first quarter, HoldingsChannel reports.

Top Dividend Stocks To Own For 2019

Most people who call themselves "investors" really aren't.   The average "investor" is really a trader. He buys a stock with the hope that at some point in the future, he'll find someone who'll buy it for more than he paid. He's trying to time the market. "Buy low and sell high," right?   More often, however, people can't stand the uncertainty. Watching the market flip and flop all over the place leads to bad decisions. People buy high and sell low.   But there's an easier way…   Many investors overlook the fact that your true wealth is your income.   I'll bet you have some idea of the total balance of your brokerage account – even without looking it up. But you probably can't quote the annual dividends your portfolio generates.   That's a blind spot many investors have. And it's a mistake. You shouldn't measure your wealth by the balance of your bank account, but by the income it generates.

Top Dividend Stocks To Own For 2019: ONEOK Inc.(OKE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Tallgrass Energy currently expects to close its acquisition of Tallgrass Energy Partners by the end of the second quarter. Once that deal closes, the combined company should cover Tallgrass’ 9%-yielding dividend with cash flow by more than 1.2 times. Furthermore, that company will generate very predictable cash flow going forward since 97% will come from long-term, fee-based contracts. Those are both solid numbers for a pipeline company. Forcomparison’s sake, Tallgrass’ coverage ratio will roughly match that of pipeline giant ONEOK (NYSE:OKE), which currently gets about 90% of its cash flow from predictable sources like fee-based contracts.
