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.

Last week, Ternium reported its earnings for Q1, which showed that the company made considerable progress in fulfilling its orders and executing the management plan. However, before deep-diving into the results, I think it would be better if I highlight the results for FY16 that were reported in February first, so that potential investors could understand the full story about Ternium and my bullish thesis behind it.

As we can see from the graphs below, net sales for 2016 were down by 8% at $7.224 million, while steel shipments increased by 2% to $9.764 million. At the same time, the company managed to improve its EBIDTA to $1.5 billion with the margin on it of 21%. But the most important part was the enormous growth of net income from $59.8 million to $706.9 million, thanks to the liquidation of some assets and the improvement of its business processes.

    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.

Best Dividend Stocks To Buy Right Now

With the resurgence in energy prices, the best proxy for the group — Energy Select Sector SPDR (ETF) (NYSEARCA:XLE) — has been on the move. While the ascent kicked off in August, it took Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE:KMI) until mid-November to catch on. After bottoming out near $17, KMI stock is now a hair under $20.

After an almost-13% rally and with earnings on tap, what do we think of Kinder Morgan stock?

KMI is not the company it used to be. Now boasting a dividend yield of just 2.58%, it’s far below what long-time investors had once known. With the industry’s changes and company-specific events, though, management had little choice about slashing its payout.

It certainly didn’t make our list of top dividend stocks to buy.

Now, the worst seems to be over and the KMI stock price rally is proof. Still, I don’t want to buy right here.

Why? I’d much rather wait to hear what the company says about its most recent quarter. After a series of tough earnings and revenue misses in 2016, last year was better. I suspect Kinder’s fiscal fourth quarter was good, but I still want to hear what management expects for 2018 before dipping my toes in the water.

Best Dividend Stocks To Buy Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Oil driller ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is benefiting from rising oil prices and rewarding investors with dividend hikes. However, the company’s drilling-focused business hasn’t been able to sustain a high dividend in the past, cutting the payment in 2016 amid low oil prices. This suggests that dividend investors will end up disappointed if highly volatile oil prices fall again. Here are two stocks with higher yields today and strong histories of rewarding investors through good times and bad: ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) and The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG). 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has worked hard to differentiate itself from other oil companies by focusing on creating value for investors as opposed to growing at all costs. That plan continued paying dividends during the first quarter, as the company blew past expectations. That strong showing sets the U.S. oil giant up for an exceptional year.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short decreased to 10.90 million from the previous 13.90 million. Shares were trading at $68.09, within a 52-week range of $52.54 to $80.24.
