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. 

  • [By A.J. Bursick]

    Tensions on the Korean Peninsula – the same tensions that have caused defense darlings like Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) and Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) to crush the Dow Jones’ gains four times over in the past five years – aren’t going anywhere any time soon.

  • [By ]

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

    But in spite of the muted reaction to this and other U.S. missile attacks in the Middle East over the years, the markets may be missing, or at least mispricing, the risk of a counter attack using cyber munitions.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    AK Steel Holding (AKS) : “They’re not the lo- cost producer. That’s Nucor (NUE) and that’s the way you want to go.”

    Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) : “Let’s wait and see. I can’t bless it until I see more from them.”

  • [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.

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.

    Furthermore, having a strong financial partner in Total to help it drive adoption of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles at this time could be a huge win.

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018

Background For This Article

About a year ago, I wrote an article explaining how Neff Corporation (NYSE:NEFF) was leveraged up to enable the payout of over $560mm to Wayzata Investment Partners, leaving the company with a weak balance sheet. I also described how the complex corporate structure obfuscates the real control of Neff Corp held by Wayzata through dual classes of common stock as well as Wayzata’s majority ownership of Neff Holdings LLC, the partnership which in turn owns the operating subsidiaries of the company. Publicly traded Class A Common shares in aggregate have only a minority of voting rights and are not expected to receive dividends. However, Wayzata’s stake is termed a “non-controlling interest” in the company’s financials.

Despite these governance issues, NEFF has participated in the rally that other stocks in the equipment rental space have enjoyed, propelling it above the 2014 IPO price for the first time:

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shipbuilding and services specialistHuntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII) was spun off from Northup Grumman in early 2011. General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) is roughly six times larger and offers a far more diversified list of products and services that includes submarines, aircraft, and armored vehicles, among other things. Both, however, provide key products and services to the U.S. military. That’s normally a fairly consistent business driven by large and often very long contracts. With a supportive administration in the White House, it would seem like now is a good time to take a look at this pair of stocks. But which of these two military-industrial companies is a better buy?

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation(RL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Ralph Lauren Corp. (NYSE: RL) was up 14% at $133.33 on Wednesday after earnings. Credit Suisse maintained its Outperform rating and raised its target to $153 from $135. Barclays left its Underweight rating in place but still raised its target to $110 from $103 after the stronger report.

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”

Hot Dividend Stocks To Own For 2018

Relax, the stock market isn’t going to lose 20% by May 4. While it may feel that way after a sucker’s session on Tuesday (stocks get bid up early on good news, then reverse course sharply on various fears), the fact remains: Corporate America is in fine health. You don’t fall into a bone-crushing bear market when companies are reporting double-digit profit growth (see Boeing’s (BA) quarter), sitting on lower leverage and are willing to shower investors with cash via buybacks and dividend hikes.

But what you could very well see in the short-term is the market blow off some steam thanks to bearish comments from Caterpillar’s (CAT)  chief financial officer (how is that guy feeling after his misguided comments pummeled the global markets?), lack of deceleration in 10-year yield expansion and general worries over big-cap tech earnings from the likes of Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL) .

Top 10 Dividend Stocks To Buy For 2018

High dividend stocks appeal to many investors. But as well as a high payout, it is crucial that you buy safe dividend stocks. Otherwise, the dividend payout looks set to go down rather than up.

To help you find compelling dividend ideas I looked for stocks that also have big support from the Street. If a stock has a ‘Strong Buy’ analyst consensus rating, that suggests it has a better risk profile than stocks where the Street outlook is more bearish.

I used TipRank’s powerful stock screener to help pinpoint these 10 worry-free dividend stocks. The screener has nine unique filter options, but I zeroed in on just three.

As you can see below, I looked for: mega-, large- or medium-cap stocks from any sector with a high or very high dividend yield and a Strong Buy analyst consensus rating. This rating is based on analyst stock ratings over the past three months only.

Let’s take a closer look now at these 10 dividend stocks to buy and keep tucked away:

    Markets are keeping a close eye on the 10-year bond, which is hovering near 3% – an important psychological level that is likely to influence future price movements. On Monday, Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” asked Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald if investors should be worried. Here’s what Keith had to say about the 10-year Treasury yield… and how it will affect your stocks and bonds in the future.
    The price of Brent crude oil topped $75.00 and hit its highest level since November 2014. Oil traders were eyeing the ongoing efforts of OPEC and Russia to reduce excessive production around the globe, rising demand ahead of peak driving season, and the possibility that the Trump administration will slap Iran with a new round of sanctions.

    As things stand right now, analysts anticipate that at least some Iranian oil will come off the market as a result of the sanctions. That lost output would further tighten an oil market that suddenly has little margin for error thanks to red-hot demand and tame supply growth.

While the world is fixated on the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, many dividend investors are focused on how U.S. Tax Reform will impact their investment accounts.

More specifically, &l;span&g;t&l;/span&g;he recently signed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is set to deliver $1.5 trillion in tax savings over the next decade, adding fuel to an already healthy economy and generally improving the tax efficiency of REITs.

&l;span&g;There is little argument that the recently passed tax reform legislation levels the playing field for U.S. corporations to become more competitive. As Cohen &a;amp; Steers explains, there are &a;ldquo;l&l;/span&g;ong-term benefits from improved global competitiveness. Lowering the corporate tax rate to 21% brings the U.S. from the highest taxed among the major economies to the middle of the range, making America more competitive globally.&a;rdquo;&l;span&g;&a;nbsp;&l;/span&g;
