That&a;rsquo;s when the Senate passed the legislation the House of Representatives did in mid-December. The RAISE Act &a;mdash; which aims to help relatives and partners who provide medical, household and financial assistance to loved ones &a;mdash;is now on its way to the White House for President Trump&a;rsquo;s signature.

However, that expansion pace likely slowed at the start of 2018, as it has for other major retailers that have reported earnings recently, including Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Home Depot. Furthermore, executives have warned that this fiscal year will show another decline in profitability as Target shifts toward a more digitally focused business.

In fact, JD now has three international giants supporting its efforts, with Google adding its name to a list that includes Tencent Holdings (NASDAQOTH: TCEHY) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT).

Best Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Oasis Midstream Partners (NYSE:OMP), and Hess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM) are far from household names. Because of that, most investors probably missed the fact that these high-yielding master limited partnerships (MLPs) have been red-hot this year. However, while all have delivered strong returns in 2018, each one still has plenty of fuel left in the tank to continue providing outsized gains in the coming years, which is why investors won’t want to keep overlooking the potential of these pipeline companies.

The best high-yield stocks share three common characteristics: They generate steady cash flow, have a conservative payout ratio, and possess a solid balance sheet. Three companies that comfortably fit that profile are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP). Not only that, but this trio of midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) takes things a step further by having visible growth coming down the pipeline, which makes them excellent income stocks to buy right now.

That’s why I own several high-yield stocks. However, of that group, three currently stand out as having the greatest probability of delivering market-beating returns from here: Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Because they’re my highest conviction ideas, I’d buy any one of them right now.
