Top Dividend Stocks To Own For 2022

Shares of Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (SPB Quick QuoteSPB ) have increased 17.8% during trading hours on Sep 8 after the company reached an agreement to divest its Hardware & Home Improvement (HHI) segment to Sweden-based lockmaker ASSA ABLOY for a deal value of $4.3 billion in cash. This represents above 14x HHI’s projected adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2021. Management informed that it will receive $3.5 billion of net proceeds after final tax calculations and purchase price adjustments.

The company expects to utilize these proceeds to repay debt, which in turn, will lower its gross leverage ratio to 2.5X and strengthen the balance sheet. The remaining proceeds will be allocated to organic growth, funding strategic acquisitions and returning capital to shareholders. This will help the company retain its quarterly cash dividend of 42 cents a share.

The sale of HHI is subject to some regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. HHI’s operations will be reported as discontinued starting the fourth quarter of 2021. Post sale, Spectrum Brands business will be streamlined, thus allowing it to intensify its focus on its three core business units, namely Global Pet Care, Home & Garden, and Home and Personal Care.

The HHI segment, which includes security products, plumbing products and hardware products, contributed roughly 36% to the company’s overall net sales during third-quarter fiscal 2021. The division, which houses brands like Kwikset, Weiser, Baldwin, Pfister, National Hardware, et al, reported organic sales growth of 46.7% year over year in the reported quarter. It recorded a sales increase of 48.8% on double-digit growth in all categories, particularly security, owing to strong demand and product launches.

On a pro-forma basis, management said that the company delivered net sales worth $3 billion and an adjusted EBITDA of $386 million with a margin of 13% for the LTM period ended Jul 4, 2021.

    The THAAD system is designed to shoot down short- and medium-range ballistic missiles on their descent. The Lockheed-manufactured system with Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) radars attracted attention in the last year as the primary U.S. deterrent to North Korean rockets over the Pacific. It’s also a potential deterrent to Iran, which is why the system is of interest to both Saudi Arabia and Israel among other U.S. allies in the region.

    Shares of Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) rose 13% in February according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Best Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now

Shares of Carnival(NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK)opened sharply lower on Thursday after the company posting mixed financial results. The world’s largest cruise line operator came through with a solid fiscal third quarter, but once again we see weak guidance weighing on the stock.

Revenue rose 5.8% to $5.836 billion for the seasonally potent summertime quarter. This follows back-to-backperiods of double-digit percentage growth, but those two quarters were the exceptions to the rule in recent years. Carnival’s top-line growth in its latest quarter was fueled primarily by a 4% increase in revenue yield, or revenue per available lower berth day (a key metric in gauging the health of the cruise industry). Favorable currency swings padded the revenue yield, but even on a constant currency basis the metric would’ve clocked in at a reasonable 2.9% uptick. Carnival’s guidance back in June was calling for a 1.5% to 2.5% increase on that basis.

    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: AAPL, DBX, STMP
    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) continues to remain in the headlines. The firm’s iPhone sales had been declining before the company decided to stop reporting unit sales beginning this year. But as Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald told readers in October 2017, Apple is no longer a device company. In fact, it hasn’t been a device company for years. Its shift into services has helped boost investor confidence, and it just made a major announcement that will target firms like Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Hulu.

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.

    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).
