Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Own Right Now

Exxon Mobil (NYSE: XOM) is an American multinational oil and gas corporation headquartered in Irving, Texas. The company is the largest direct descendant of the Standard Oil Company, a company that was once by far the largest company in the world. Despite this size, Exxon Mobil has had a difficult time since the start of the crash. However, as we will see, the company has continued to cut expenses, increase earnings, and expand production. This expansion, as we will see, makes Exxon Mobil a strong investment.

Introduction

Exxon Mobil, with a market cap of more than $340 billion, is the largest publicly traded oil company in the world. As a result of this size, Exxon Mobil also spends tens of billions of dollars annually on expansion spending. On top of this, Exxon Mobil is also a dividend aristocrat. The company provides investors an annual dividend at the present time of just over 3.5%, a dividend that it has consistently increased, year over year, for 34 years. This strong dividend, as we will see, will be supported by increasing earnings.

    As I wrote yesterday, Lockheed’ s older F-16 jet is considered a front runner in the Indian Air Force’s potential $15 billion order for 110 fighter aircraft. Lockheed also produces the more modern (and stealth capable) F-22, and F-35 fighters. Both of these fighters are professionally thought to be effective against Russia’s S-400 long range air defense missile system. That system is currently deployed in western Syria. Last week, Lockheed also won a $247 million contract from NASA to design and build an experimental aircraft that could operate without creating a traditional sonic boom. My price target: $375.

    Raytheon (RTN)

    First off, should the president decide to strike Syria without the use of American pilots, guess who produces the Tomahawk missile? That’s right. These guys. On top of that, you might have noticed that two weeks ago, Poland agreed to spend $4.75 billion on RTN’s Patriot missile defense system. By the way, this is the largest weapons deal in the history of Poland. Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula has not been lost on this former Warsaw Pact nation.

    The near-zero natural gas engines were created by a joint venture between Cummins(NYSE:CMI) and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT), called Cummins Westport. Unveiled on May 1, the engine lineup can be used in medium- and heavy-duty trucks, including buses, refuse vehicles, and long-haul trucks. In fact, the ISX 12N engine, as it is called, is the world’s first Class 8on-highway truck engine to be certified near-zero by the California Air Resources Board, which sets emission standards that are followed by 16 other states. The Tesla Semi and Nikola One are both Class 8 vehicles, or what most people refer to as semis.

    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.

Best Dividend Stocks For 2019

I don’t fall into the demographics of your prototypical dividend investor. I’m relatively young, and I don’t anticipate needing the income from dividends any time soon. What I do have, though, is a very long-term investment horizon that allows me to take advantage of one of the most powerful wealth-building tools: reinvested dividends.

Like any other investor, I have made several mistakes along the way, but they have helped me refine what I’m looking for (and avoiding) in a high-yield dividend stock. I’m still refining that process, but there are three key things I look for when picking a dividend stock for my portfolio:

Assets or a business model that have a decent level of clarity over the next 5-10 years. That can be assets with long-term revenue contracts or a hard-to-disrupt business. A management team that has proven itself to be good stewards of shareholder money with prudent investments and an eye on keeping its balance sheet from becoming overloaded with debt. A company that isn’t promising an overly generous payout or gaudy dividend growth numbers. I’m in no rush, and companies that promise exorbitant yields or growth rates tend to not live up to those promises.

With these basic requirements in mind, I just added two dividend stocks I think will fit this mold well in my retirement account: renewable power asset owner TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP)and industrial real estate investment trust STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG). Here’s why I think these stocks fit my mold for high-yield dividend stocks — and why you may want to consider them for your own portfolio.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2018

Historically low rates and central bank stimulus have been a defining characteristic of the recovery. No other economic factors have driven more of the four-fold surge in the S&P 500 from its 2009 low.

That could be about to change.

The 10-year Treasury yield, now at 2.42%, is often compared to the average dividend yields as a measure of stock market attractiveness. The reasoning goes that if the average dividend yield of a stock is higher, investors can get a reasonably solid cash return versus bonds even if share prices are more volatile.

A 10-year yield higher than the average dividend yield is thought to be a warning sign for stocks because investors might be persuaded to take less risk and earn the higher yield in Treasuries.

That idea hasn’t held up very well with the 10-year yield above 2% since November 2016, but the rising yield on another maturity may prove the theory.

The yield on the 2-year note recently surpassed the dividend yield, 1.89% versus 1.86% for stocks, the first time it’s happened in a decade.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2018: Raytheon Company(RTN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By VantagePoint]

    Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has actually been on a prolonged uptrend going back five years, but the stock struggled for the first three months of 2018 to get over the $220 level. That resistance has since broken however, and RTN has continued to reach new all-time highs. This is another one that is looking poised to continue higher through its earnings report on April 26. Raytheon has exceeded Wall Street's EPS estimates every quarter since July 2016.

    The chief beneficiary in the markets appears to be Raytheon (RTN) , which makes the Tomahawk cruise missiles employed in the U.S. response.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE) reported its first-quarter 2018 results on April 19, delivering earnings of $1.10 per share. While this was a little less than the year-ago result of $1.11 per share and the $1.20 per share in the fourth quarter of 2017, it was above most investor expectations. And when adjusted for one-time gains and expenses related to the newly enacted federal tax law in late 2017, and for tax-status changes at a subsidiary, it was a better result than recent quarters.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE) has built an incredible streak in the highly cyclical steel industry — it’s increased its dividend every year for 45 consecutive years. That makes it a Dividend Aristocrat. A combination of factors led to this impressive achievement, including a well-run business, conservative finances, and a constant push for growth during good years and bad. The current industry upturn hasn’t stopped it on the growth front, but it has shifted the priorities a little bit. Here’s how Nucor is investing for the future today.
