Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2019

General Electric said Tuesday it will “adjust” its dividend once a just-announced spinoff of its health-care business is completed.

GE shares rose in premarket trading after the beleaguered industrial conglomerate said it would shed GE Healthcare and sell its stake in energy company Baker Hughes. The company said it would focus on the aviation, power and renewable energy businesses.

But lower in the announcement, the company addressed its payout, a touchy subject for the company since any change to its policy could send long-time retail holders of the blue chip headed for the exits:

“GE expects to maintain its current quarterly dividend, subject to Board approval, until GE Healthcare is established as an independent entity. At that time, the new GE Healthcare Board of Directors will determine GE Healthcare’s dividend policy, which GE expects to reflect healthcare industry practices. Also at that time, the GE Board expects to adjust the GE dividend with a target dividend policy in line with industrial peers.”

GE said the spinoff is expected to be completed within 12 to 18 months.

For Thor Industries (NYSE:THO), the RV manufacturer’s corporate home in Elkhart, Indiana, might seem about as far removed from international trade tensions as you could image. Yet even though the RV market has been extremely strong lately, Thor believes that what’s been going on between Washington and foreign trade partners could create headwinds that will eventually make their way to this company in America’s heartland.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

 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.

    The stock market had a generally solid performance on Monday, with large-cap indexes posting modest gains even as benchmarks that track the changes of smaller stocks underperformed. The big news of the day came on the trade front, where the White House intervened to reverse previous policy with respect to Chinese smartphone giant ZTE in an apparent effort to gain favor with the world’s most populous nation and second-largest economic power. Investors looked for potential winners from the thawing of relations with China, but not all stocks were able to avoid significant losses. Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB), Synchronoss Technologies (NASDAQ:SNCR), and DHX Media (NASDAQ:DHXM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    If you’ve entered your retirement years, then your investment goals have likely shifted from wealth accumulation to living off the wealth you have created.

    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).

Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) currently trades at a P/E of 65 and a forward P/E of almost 35. The companys success at transitioning its business model to cloud-based subscriptions (perhaps the most successful cloud transition amongst software companies?) accounts for most of the optimism surrounding the stock. For this article, we want to focus on its smaller Marketing Cloud business. We believe its the greatest reason for optimism about the stock and the reason investors in traditional ad agencies such as WPP Group (NYSE:WPP), Omnicom (NYSE:OMC), Interpublic Group (NYSE:IPG), Publicis Groupe (OTCQX:PUBGY), and Denstu (OTCPK:DNTUY) should be very concerned.
