Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Own For 2019

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act changed the U.S. tax code in major ways, and 2018 is the first year these changes will go into effect. All taxpayers can expect to see major differences on this year’s tax return from what they’re used to.

Those changes will have a big impact on folks filing their tax returns in 2019, but two changes in the tax law are especially likely to affect retirees.

1. The standard deduction rose nearly 100%

One of the biggest and most notable changes for 2018 taxes is the standard deduction being nearly doubled. The standard deduction for single filers in 2018 is $12,000, up from $6,350. For married folks filing jointly, the standard deduction is $24,000, up from $12,700.

Deductions are amounts taxpayers are allowed to subtract from their taxable income, which reduces the total tax owed, and can even shift the taxpayer into a lower tax bracket so they pay a smaller percentage of their income in tax. Taxable income is measured by AGI (adjusted gross income), which is the total of all your taxable income from all your income sources, including wages, bonuses, and dividends, minus allowed adjustments, such as qualified individual retirement accounts and alimony.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Own For 2019: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Bromels]

    Three years ago, if you asked me to compare the prospects of an integrated oil major like BP (NYSE:BP) to an independent oil and gas exploration and production company (E&P) like ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), I’d have told you the oil major would win hands down. The price of oil had collapsed, and independent drillers were stuck up the proverbial creek without a paddle.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short fell to 21.01 million from the previous level of 24.44 million. Shares were trading at $69.15, within a 52-week range of $42.27 to $70.15.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    As oil prices rose through the first nine months of last year, it caused several of Marathon’s peers to boost their capital spending plans. ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), for example, increased its budget twice, going from an initial level of $5.5 billion up to $6.1 billion by year-end. Meanwhile, Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) set its budget range between $4.2 billion and $4.6 billion but ended up spending $4.8 billion. Marathon, on the other hand, had resisted the temptation to boost spending, keeping a tight lid on its budget at $2.3 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has worked hard to distinguish itself from other oil companies over the past few years by shifting its focus from growing production to increasing shareholder value. That led it on a path to shed high-cost assets so that it could slim down to a company that could thrive at lower oil prices.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    And yet, a funny thing has been happening in the market for oil stocks over this past week. All of a sudden, Wall Street analysts are talking up free cash flow as a reason to buy oil stocks. In fact, they can’t seem to shut up about it. Over just the past few days, I’ve seen free cash flow mentioned prominently in the analyses of Wall Street bankers on no fewer than three separate oil stocks: ExxonMobil, Chevron (NYSE:CVX), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP).

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Courier Capital LLC cut its stake in ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) by 3.9% in the fourth quarter, according to the company in its most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The firm owned 4,910 shares of the energy producer’s stock after selling 198 shares during the period. Courier Capital LLC’s holdings in ConocoPhillips were worth $306,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

The Federal Reserve&a;rsquo;s increased aggression over the past couple of years has finally come home to roost. The yield on the 10-year Treasury recently rocketed above 2.8% &a;ndash; a four-year high &a;ndash; while the 30-year cleared the 3% mark.

That&a;rsquo;s bad news for investors in many traditional dividend-paying blue chips.

The 10-year T-note might as well have been a &a;ldquo;high-yield&a;rdquo; savings account the past few years, offering almost laughable income of less than 1.4% as recently as 2016. That kind of environment gives investors &a;ldquo;yield goggles,&a;rdquo; making even no-growth stocks look attractive as long as they&a;rsquo;re paying out near 3%.

Just look at the performance of the &l;b&g;Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR &l;/b&g;&a;ndash; a collection of companies such as &l;b&g;Procter &a;amp; Gamble&l;/b&g; and &l;b&g;Coca-Cola&l;/b&g; &a;ndash; against the 10-year Treasury rate. While the XLP has broadly grown, it&a;rsquo;s strongest when the T-note&a;rsquo;s yield is in decline, and the fund typically stagnates or declines when the Treasury begins to deliver more income.

    As you can see in the table above, Resource Industries is currently the smallest segment, but its cyclical recovery is crucial to Caterpillar meeting its guidance.

Throw in talk of near-term weakness from companies like Cummins (NYSE:CMI) — and Caterpillar for that matter — and the outlook is uncertain.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

In Warren Buffett’s 1992 letter to Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.B) shareholders, Buffett touches upon a subject at odds with much of the investment industry:

“Most analysts feel they must choose between two approaches customarily thought to be in opposition: ‘value’ and ‘growth.’ Indeed, many investment professionals see any mixing of the two terms as a form of intellectual cross-dressing.

We view that as fuzzy thinking… In our opinion, the two approaches are joined at the hip: Growth is always a component in the calculation of value, constituting a variable whose importance can range from negligible to enormous and whose impact can be negative as well as positive.”

Many investors tend to categorize stocks into value and growth. However, the most successful investors view growth as simply one component of a company’s value as Mr. Buffett explains.

The future outlook for a company is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock. And while value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the current trading price that matters the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price.

    Meanwhile, the return multiples for many of the projects under development by Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) are in the six- to eight-times EBITDA range. Because of that, the $1.7 billion of expansion projects Magellan currently has underway only will generate about $250 million in incidental EBITDA. That’s partially why Magellan Midstream expects to grow its payout at a slower pace of 8% this year and a 5% to 8% annual rate in 2019 and 2020, even though it plans on paying out the same percentage of its cash flow as ONEOK.

    Over the last 12 months, shares of PACCAR (NASDAQ:PCAR) are down 5%, Cummins (NYSE:CMI) stock is off by 14%, and WABCO (NYSE:WBC) is down more than 18%.

    As you can see in the table above, Resource Industries is currently the smallest segment, but its cyclical recovery is crucial to Caterpillar meeting its guidance. The problem here is that metals and minerals prices have been declining in the last six months, and this calls into question the idea that miners are in the early innings of a long cycle of investment. Throw in talk of near-term weakness from companies like Cummins (NYSE:CMI) — and Caterpillar for that matter — and the outlook is uncertain.
