Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

 It's one of the few constants in the financial markets…   Popular investment ideas are usually losers.   As we often preach, it pays to be a contrarian. Or as billionaire investor Warren Buffett has famously said, "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful."   Whatever phrase you choose… whenever the "crowd" is heavily betting one way, it's often a good time to take the other side of that bet.    We were reminded of this fact when we saw the Commitments of Traders ("COT") report on the U.S. Treasury market earlier this week…   If you're not familiar, the COT is a weekly government report that tracks the bets of different types of traders in different futures markets, including U.S. Treasurys.

    Dividends are a cash return on your investment in a stock — effectively, companies are paying you to own their shares. Since you own part of the companies in which you are investing, and thus have a right to a portion of the earnings, it only makes sense that you should expect a piece of the action via a dividend payment. Here are three companies that take returning cash to shareholders very seriously, and that also have sizable yields: ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK), and W.P. Carey Inc. (NYSE:WPC).

good stocks to buy today

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) is a dividend growth machine that I started covering last fall with a buy rating, especially if you could get shares for under $40. I have said of course that shares appeared that would be tough to acquire under $40 but that chance has arrived. It finally happened. The stock has been a tough investment lately as it has been a name that has moved sideways to down here in 2016. But for those seeking a safe investment for income, Coca-Cola has to be on the list and the yield is now hitting 3.5%. Remember that when I started coverage I stated that Coca-Cola was a name that “you buy for income/dividend growth. Capital appreciation is secondary.” And friends, Coca-Cola is a sparkling example of a dividend growth name. I continue to think that the stock is best served in a long-term, tax deferred account like an IRA, with the ultimate goal of reinvesting the dividends and amassing a large position. But is this stock worth holding?

The short answer is yes, but I would go so far as to say this stock is approaching a real buying opportunity. I said under $40 I liked it. That hasn’t changed. But as the stock continues to fall, let it. Buy incrementally. Now, long-term is the buy worth it? For the long answer to this question I will examine the recently reported results and discuss the outlook for the stock. Let me start with some highlights. First the company saw revenue of $10.63 billion which beat analyst expectations by $9 million, but it was also down 7.0% year-over-year. Ouch. Earnings continue to be strong, with Q3earnings coming in at $0.49, which was a $0.01 beat against estimates.
