Advisors’ Opinion:

    I expect a lot of talk this week about virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) — relatively new computing platforms that carry the potential to transform how people interact with technology. At present, there is no clear winner yet with either of these emerging platforms. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)has Oculus, and Google is doing its part with Daydream. Another key player in the virtual reality landscape is HTC(NASDAQOTH:HTCXF) Vive, which recently hosted an event showcasing the company’s latest developments in VR.

Hot Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

As a generation, millennials are often maligned for being bad with money and reluctant to grow up but they still probably need a will.

Of course anyone who owns an asset like a home, or who has a spouse or dependents should have a will a document that lists the deceaseds beneficiaries and last wishes but so should just about any other adult, even single millennials, experts said. Along with a will, they should have beneficiary designations for any employer-sponsored retirement accounts and a power of attorney, especially for medical decisions. You cant make a decision if youre medically incapable or if youre dead, said Leslie Beck, a financial adviser at Compass Wealth Management in Rutherford, N.J. While they tend to be less common among millennials, those two situations, its not like it never happens.

    That’s why many investors shop among the short list ofDividend Aristocrats, which are companies that boast an unbroken streak of at least 25 years of consecutive payout raises. A few members of that elite group have fallen out of favor recently and could represent solid long-term buys. Below, we’ll look at the prospects for market-beating returns fromCoca-Cola(NYSE:KO),Target(NYSE:TGT), andLowe’s(NYSE:LOW).

    Beverage companies such as PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Co. (KO)  have been struggling recently to boost sales of sugary, carbonated drinks as more and more consumers shift to healthier eating habits. PepsiCo has the upper hand, though, as it does not rely solely on beverages.

    Yes, Coca-Cola (KO) announced a CEO swap last week, but that has nothing to do with Morgan Stanley’s decision to cut Coca-Cola to Equal Weight from Overweight. Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian and team explain what did:

    Getty Images

    We view Coke valuation as fair here, given topline challenges, with results limited by secular health/wellness challenges in developed markets and by weak macros in emerging markets. We also are even more cautious on large cap multinationals in general, given direct and indirect impacts from a Trump administration: 1) less favorable relative tax benefits from policy changes than domestic centric manufacturers, 2) the indirect impact of a strengthening US dollar, and 3) lower leverage to a potential US macro recovery from greater fiscal spending (which will have less impact on defensive large cap staples). Our downgrade is not related to the recent CEO change. We view James Quincey favorably, and we expect (and encourage) him to push harder on the favorable strategic changes Coke announced in October 2014.

    No matter. Shares of Coca-Cola have advanced 0.2% to $41.62 at 12:36 p.m. today.

    Retirees should generally invest in companies with wide moats and solid dividends. In a previous article, I noted that AT&T and Unilever were easy-to-understand companies that were ideal for most retirement portfolios. Today, I’ll add two more companies to that list — alcoholic beverage giants Diageo (NYSE:DEO) and Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD).
