Best Dividend Stocks To Invest In 2019

General Electric Co. (GE) is poised to miss first-quarter earnings and the Boston-based industrial conglomerate’s dividend isn’t safe, a Cowen analyst said Wednesday in a research note.

“We expect the upcoming accounting restatement and [first-quarter] print to continue to pressure this ‘show me’ stock,” analyst Gautam Khanna wrote. “We don’t believe the $0.48 per year dividend is safe unless ‘contract assets’ convert to cash on a net basis, and/or the power market rebounds sharply and soon.”

The analyst added that a first-quarter earnings-per-share miss “appears probable,” as lower pricing and falling turbine deliveries will likely hinder profits at GE’s power unit. Khanna now estimates earnings at 8 cents per share for the first period vs. the 12-cent consensus that most analysts are expecting.
