Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

&l;p&g;&l;img class=&q;dam-image shutterstock size-large wp-image-737546929&q; src=&q;https://specials-images.forbesimg.com/dam/imageserve/737546929/960×0.jpg?fit=scale&q; data-height=&q;640&q; data-width=&q;960&q;&g; Shutterstock

The Federal Reserve&a;rsquo;s increased aggression over the past couple of years has finally come home to roost. The yield on the 10-year Treasury recently rocketed above 2.8% &a;ndash; a four-year high &a;ndash; while the 30-year cleared the 3% mark.

That&a;rsquo;s bad news for investors in many traditional dividend-paying blue chips.

The 10-year T-note might as well have been a &a;ldquo;high-yield&a;rdquo; savings account the past few years, offering almost laughable income of less than 1.4% as recently as 2016. That kind of environment gives investors &a;ldquo;yield goggles,&a;rdquo; making even no-growth stocks look attractive as long as they&a;rsquo;re paying out near 3%.

Just look at the performance of the &l;b&g;Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR &l;/b&g;&a;ndash; a collection of companies such as &l;b&g;Procter &a;amp; Gamble&l;/b&g; and &l;b&g;Coca-Cola&l;/b&g; &a;ndash; against the 10-year Treasury rate. While the XLP has broadly grown, it&a;rsquo;s strongest when the T-note&a;rsquo;s yield is in decline, and the fund typically stagnates or declines when the Treasury begins to deliver more income.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Clarke(t)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are digesting the ongoing roller coaster that is President Trump’s trade policy. Recently, Trump slapped the EU, Canada, and Mexico with heavy tariffs on steel and aluminum. At the end of the event, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that all seven member nations signed a summit communique despite ongoing trade tensions. However, President Trump has now claimed that Trudeau lied to him about certain policies. This ongoing political drama will extend through the week. Trump has arrived in Singapore to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. This will be the first meeting between an American president and a sitting North Korean leader. Ahead of the meeting, Trump said that he will know “within a minute” whether North Korean officials are serious about giving up their weapons and potentially liberalizing their economy. The other major story to watch this week is the meeting of the Fed Open Market Committee, which kicks off on Tuesday. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate of 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.
