Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2019

Analysis

We believe Dr Pepper’s (NYSE:DPS) investment in the Bai initiatives will generate long-term value that is not yet included in the share price. The company has doubled down on this focus with the continued soda tax pressure. In the short term, shareholders will benefit from the company’s solid dividend and sales growth from its core portfolio of brands.

Soda Taxes in Focus

Soda taxes are in focus yet again, with news reports that consumers in Chicago are actually crossing county borders to avoid a newly imposed soda tax. Chicago is just the latest front in the battle against soda-related obesity, with Philadelphia having implemented its own earlier this year, and it highlights why companies like Dr Pepper Snapple, Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP) have built their forward-looking strategy around healthier beverages.

In Dr Pepper’s case, this strategy crystallized in the form of its acquisition of Bai Brands for $1.7 billion in late 2016. Bai sells antioxidant-infused fruit beverages meant to cater to consumers who now prefer healthier drinks as part of their diets.

    Earnings appear to be helping equities futures, if slightly, with six Dow Jones Industrial Average ($DJI) components reporting this morning. Leading the way was construction equipment maker Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT), which reported solid earnings of $2.82 a share versus analyst consensus of $2.11. CAT shares rose more than 4 percent in pre-market trading. Other Dow components advancing on this morning's earnings include Verizon Communications inc. (NYSE: VZ), Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) and United Technologies Corporation (NYSE: UTX). The $DJI’s advance appears to have been muted, however, on weaker earnings by 3M Co. (NYSE: MMM), which fell nearly 4 percent on lower company guidance, and insurance giant Travelers Companies Inc. (NYSE: TRV), which fell short of analyst estimates.

The decline seemed to pick up the pace as the day went on and at 1:15 p.m. EDT shares were down 8.6% and near their low for the day.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, AAPL, EL
    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) plunged 7% after JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) slashed its price target for the automaker. JPM cut its December 2018 price target for TSLA stock from $308 to $195 per share, sighting Musk’s inconsistent statements about company funding. That would be a 36% collapse from Friday’s closing price. The news comes as Elon Musk continues to make a series of questionable Tweets about himself and his company. China is coming down on Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). According to state media reports, Tim Cook’s company has pulled about 25,000 illegal lottery applications from its application store in China. The news comes as China continues clamp down on illegal apps that sold lottery tickets or provided gambling services. Estee Lauder Co. Inc. (NYSE: EL) shares were off 0.3% after the cosmetics giant reported earnings before the bell. The firm reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.61. That figure topped analysts’ expectations by $0.05. The downturn came due to the firm’s weaker-than-expected quarterly forecast and news that it will incur larger marketing costs for a number of new product initiatives. Look for earnings reports from Fabrinet (NYSE: FN) and Nordson Corp. (Nasdaq: NDSN).

    Markets are cheering news that the supposed trade war between the United States and China is “on hold,” according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries. The prices of crude oil is in focus after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won reelection over the weekend. The election featured a very low turnout and a very large outcry that the vote was rigged. Maduro has a 75% disapproval rating and has been the face of the OPEC member’s widespread mismanagement and economic collapse. Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity. Today, Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX) announced plans to purchase U.S. hotel operator LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) for a whopping $3.7 billion.

    Amphenol (NYSE:APH) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Amphenol is benefiting from its end-market strength. As evident from fourth-quarter results, revenues are being driven by strong organic growth across mobile devices, military, IT and data communications, mobile networks, commercial air and broadband. Moreover, continuing focus on geographic and market diversification has enabled Amphenol to extend its presence into new customers and new applications. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, management expects first quarter sales to be negatively impacted by global economic uncertainties related to trade policy and weakness in the mobile devices end market. The geopolitical uncertainty particularly related to the U.S.-China relationship remains a major headwind.”

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, AAPL, EL
    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) plunged 7% after JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) slashed its price target for the automaker. JPM cut its December 2018 price target for TSLA stock from $308 to $195 per share, sighting Musk’s inconsistent statements about company funding. That would be a 36% collapse from Friday’s closing price. The news comes as Elon Musk continues to make a series of questionable Tweets about himself and his company. China is coming down on Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). According to state media reports, Tim Cook’s company has pulled about 25,000 illegal lottery applications from its application store in China. The news comes as China continues clamp down on illegal apps that sold lottery tickets or provided gambling services. Estee Lauder Co. Inc. (NYSE: EL) shares were off 0.3% after the cosmetics giant reported earnings before the bell. The firm reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.61. That figure topped analysts’ expectations by $0.05. The downturn came due to the firm’s weaker-than-expected quarterly forecast and news that it will incur larger marketing costs for a number of new product initiatives. Look for earnings reports from Fabrinet (NYSE: FN) and Nordson Corp. (Nasdaq: NDSN).

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Own Right Now

One of our favorite marijuana dividend stocks is about to receive a huge boost in sales.

We’re talking about Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. (NYSE: SMG), the well-known worldwide leader in lawn and garden care that has become a must-have marijuana “pick-and-shovel” play.

Luckily for its investors, Scotts was early to board the marijuana train.

In 2015, Scotts’ CEO, Jim Hagedorn, purchased two companies that specialize in soil and fertilizer for cannabis growers. Then, one year later, he invested a 75% stake in Gavita International, a hydroponics equipment company.

Hydroponics is the method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent – a popular and highly effective way of growing cannabis, especially in densely populated areas.

As of December 2016, Scotts’ hydroponics business generated roughly $250 million annually, according to Bloomberg, and that number is expected to grow.

Since then, the company has also acquired leading brands Agrolux, Botanicare, General Hydroponics, and Vermicrop to capitalize on cannabis legalization.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Own Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Goldman Sachs has made a key rotation in its oil and gas sector coverage. The firm downgraded ConcoPhillips (NYSE: COP) to Neutral from Buy now that its shares had risen more than 40% so far in 2018 alone. That blows away the performance of most energy index leaders, and this downgrade is based on the good news now being reflected in the shares. Goldman Sachs analyst Neil Mehta has an $81 price target on ConocoPhillips, which compares with the prior closing price of $79.89 and its 52-week high of $80.24.

    Stocks to Watch Today: GE, FB, TSLA
    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) popped 7% in pre-market hours after the company reported stronger-than-expected revenue before the bell. The firm’s profit estimates, however, fell $0.05 short of consensus expectations at $0.17 per share. CEO Larry Culp will still need to address three issues that are keeping many potential investors on edge: GE Capital still faces financial challenges, the SEC and Justice Department are still investigating the firm, and its power division has been burning cash at an incredible rate. Shares of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) popped more than 11% in pre-market hours after the company crushed earnings after the bell Wednesday. The social media giant reported gains in daily active users in every geographic market on the planet. The firm also reported earnings per share of $2.38, topping expectations by $0.19. Its $16.91 billion in quarterly revenue also bested consensus expectations of $16.39 billion. The firm matched daily and monthly active user estimates. In addition, investors largely ignored the latest date scandal rattling sentiment. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) slumped 4.5% before the bell Thursday. During the company’s quarterly conference call, CEO Elon Musk announced that CFO Deepak Ahuja will be retiring. This is the second time that Ahuja has departed the company after returning just two years ago. Despite the departure, the firm’s quarterly earnings report was mixed overall. Adjusted earnings per share came in at $1.93, well below the $2.20 expected by analysts. Revenue, however, beat estimates, and Musk said he expects that his company will be profitable moving forward.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2019

Investors shrugged their shoulders at the Fed’s slightly more hawkish outlook on future rate hikes this week after positive news from the ECB and great macroeconomic data in the U.S. underscored the strength of the global economy. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq index continues to sit near all-time highs, suggesting tech stocks are once again helping push markets upward. A great first quarter earnings season for the sector was met with lukewarm reactions, but volatility has eased and tech companies are all the rage once again. We are now in a quiet stretch for earnings reports, but investors can still use the Zacks Earnings Calendar to prepare for important dates from companies with abnormal fiscal periods. The calendar includes earnings, dividend announcements, and other important financial releases, making it the perfect one-stop-shop to properly prepare for the market events that will have an impact on your own portfolio.

Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2019: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    General Dynamics Corp. (NYSE: GD) dropped about 2.1% Thursday to post a new 52-week low of $187.32. Shares closed at $191.40 on Wednesday and the stock’s 52-week high is $230.00. Volume was 25% higher than the daily average of around 1.6 million. The defense giant had no specific news.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    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.

    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) plunged 7% after JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) slashed its price target for the automaker. JPM cut its December 2018 price target for TSLA stock from $308 to $195 per share, sighting Musk’s inconsistent statements about company funding.
