    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) were off 1% this morning after the stock received a downgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS). While the Swiss bank called PepsiCo a “high quality” business, it raised concerns about its need to heavily invest over several years into struggling business lines and snack products. It also raised concerns about the ongoing competitive threats in the industry. CS set a price target for Pepsi at $100 per share, which is well below yesterday’s trading price of $116.

The financial media loves to tout $1 million as the end-all be-all mark of financial security.

But today, I&a;rsquo;ll show you how wrong they are, and how secure you can be even with just half of what &a;ldquo;conventional wisdom&a;rdquo; says you need &a;ndash; as long as you&a;rsquo;re in the right kind of dividend stock.

And I&a;rsquo;ll also show you exactly what kind of dividend stocks you need to get the job done and the bills paid.

Those bills, by the way, come every month. You and I both know this &a;ndash; for me, the mortgage is due come the 4th, electricity on the 10th, have been for years. But some people somehow forget this when planning out their portfolios. The result? Their motley crew of quarterly dividend stocks results in &a;ldquo;lumpy&a;rdquo; distributions where some months are heavy, and others are thin.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

Canada may be locked in a trade fight with the U.S., but the country’s exporters aren’t slowing down.

According to Markit’s survey of Canadian manufacturers, the index for new export orders hit 55.9 in May, the highest since 2011 and compared with a five-year average of just 51.4. The gauge has risen sharply since the start of the year, suggesting demand for Canadian goods is strengthening.

It’s a timely development, since another report Thursday showed the country’s typically staunch consumers are showing signs of fatigue. Exports may be the just the driver the economy needs to move forward.

#lazy-img-328258092:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

But Friday’s data also adds to evidence Canada’s export manufacturers are reaching their limit. Unless the sector builds more capacity, it’s difficult to imagine how exports — which make up about a third of gross domestic product — can lead growth. In the manufacturing industry, capacity utilization rates, which show how close firms are to maximum output, are currently the highest since 2000.

    Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business. General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs. The company did raise its fiscal 2018 earnings forecast, and issued a revised update of severance costs. Look for earnings reports from Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO), United Natural Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: UNFI), Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS), Scholastic Corp. (NASDAQ: SCHL), and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).
