Top Dividend Stocks To Invest In Right Now

It’s often the case that investors in tech stocks are hungry for growth and, ultimately, substantial share price appreciation rather than dividends. After all, if you’re on the hunt for stocks that can, say, double your money over a relatively short amount of time, whether those stocks pay dividends (or, if they do, the size of that dividend) isn’t necessarily going to be top of mind.

However, if you’re a tech investor who’s interested in large, market-leading tech giants that also happen to pay respectable (and growing) dividends, here are three stocks that you might want to put on your radar: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN).

1. Apple

Apple hasn’t been paying a dividend for very long, but ever since it re-initiated its dividend in 2012, it has done a good job delivering steady increases in the size of that dividend year after year.

Despite several years of steady declines, deadly vehicle crashes are on the rise, according to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The safest day to be on the road: Tuesday. The most dangerous? Saturday.

That’s according to a new study by Avvo, an online legal referral and review site, which analyzed data from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System in 2016 on how many car crash-related fatalities happened across the country by weekday and time of day. 

The analysis found that 6,802 lives were lost on Saturday out of the 37,461 road deaths that occurred in 2016. That was 53% higher than the 4,444 deaths that happened on a Tuesday, the day with the least number of crash-related fatalities. 

The second and third deadliest days were also associated with the weekend: Friday (5,826) and Sunday (5,809).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    It was a great year for Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ:TTWO) in 2018, but you couldn’t tell it by the stock price. The video game publisher matched the 6% decline of the S&P 500, after gaining as much as 24% earlier in the year, due to the year-end market correction. Late in the year, the company released the long-awaited sequel to Red Dead Redemption to near-perfect reviews and achieved a record-breaking debut for the title.

  • [By Timothy Green]

    Shares of video game developer and publisher Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) slumped on Wednesday after the company reported its fiscal third-quarter results. Revenue and earnings exploded thanks to Red Dead Redemption 2, but concerns about a changing video game industry may have been too much to overcome. The stock was down about 13.3% at 12:55 p.m. EST.

    Until recently, shareholders of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) have had plenty of reason to be happy with their investments. But some holiday season sales setbacks have caused each stock to get hit by substantial sell-offs. The stock prices have cooled off, but that’s also made them more approachable and raised the potential payoff for long-term investors.

    Take Spice VC, a venture-capital fund that looked to raise $100 million and said it secured commitments for $40 million of that in a token pre-sale. It followed the terms of Rule 506c of the SEC’S Regulation D, which spells out conditions under which offers of securities are exempt from normal registration rules, and Section 3(c)(1) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, which allows private funds to avoid SEC rules. That meant, in Spice VC’s case, offering sales documents to a maximum of 99 prospective investors, who had to register on its website, certify that they are accredited (read: wealthy), provide proof of identification and respect applicable lock-up periods before selling their tokens. Issuers using the exemptions must check that buyers aren’t laundering funds and disclose operational information to the public on a regular basis after the sale.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

Things are moving fast in renewable energy. Really fast. Consider that in 2008 wind farms supplied just 1.5% of all electricity in the United States. But by 2019 wind power is expected to contribute 6.9% of American electricity and overtake hydropower as the top renewable energy source.

The rise of wind power wouldn’t have been possible without two companies in particular, which combine to own 20.7 gigawatts of wind capacity, or about 24% of the country’s total. Investors wouldn’t be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power. However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) doesn’t seem to garner nearly the same level of attention. Overlooking it could be a mistake.

With 10-year total returns of 226% and plans to grow its dividend and EPS at annual clips of 5% to 7% — all while investing billions in new wind and solar capacity — it could be the best renewable energy stock you’ve never heard of.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: LC, GE, GS
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) has ousted its CEO John Flannery. Shares are up more than 10% as investors celebrated the news. GE has been mired in a slump, particularly its turbine business. The firm’s new CEO is H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., the former CEO of the industrial firm Danaher. Shares of LendingClub Corp. (NYSE: LC) are under pressure after the SEC charged one of the firm’s divisions with mishandling client money. This weekend, the firm reached a settlement with regulators on charges that the firm inflated its revenue and made changes to products to make the firm look healthier than it is. As a result, the firm’s board of directors forced CEO Renaud Laplanche to resign.

    1. Equity Commonwealth (NYSE: EQC)
    It may be surprising to find a real estate investment trust (REIT) on this list, but Sam Zell’s investment vehicle is preparing itself for a possible debt bomb. Zell’s ability to foresee economic trends has built him great wealth. Now, he is selling EQC’s holdings to create a cash hoard ready to deploy when debt causes real estate prices to plunge again.

    Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) continued to steadily sell off its portfolio of real estate holdings, closing three more sales during the quarter, bringing its property count down to 13. As a result, cash flow kept declining. That trend doesn’t show any signs of ending given that the company has more properties on the market and doesn’t yet see a good opportunity to make acquisitions.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust(BPT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Hot Medical Stocks For 2019

If you have the choice between making a major purchase on a credit card or a personal loan, your first choice should be neither.

Your first choice – if you will not be able to pay back the purchase by the end of the month – should be cash. If you do not have the cash, then you should consider skipping the purchase until you have saved enough money.

Now, that may be easier said than done.

There may be important life milestones, medical necessities and other purchases that necessitate financing, given your personal financial circumstances and financial life goals.

While credit cards have many benefits and offer all types of rewards (cash back, travel and more), they are not always the best option – particularly for longer-term financing needs.

For these major purchases and life milestones – if sufficient cash is not readily available – a personal loan may be a less expensive option.
