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.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019: Zynga Inc.(ZNGA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Gaming publishers are always looking for the next big thing. The odds of scoring a huge hit are vanishingly small, even for a short-term victory. Consider the case of Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), the social gaming veteran that struck gold with FarmVille and Words With Friends once upon a time. The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far. Like I said, it’s a long way down from the top.
