    After the results of the capital plan reviews were announced, most banks individually announced increases (or maintenance) of their stock buybacks and dividends for the next year. Here are a few of the most significant:

    Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) will give shareholders a 25% dividend increase to an annualized rate of $0.60 per share and will also increase its buyback authorization to $20.6 billion over the next year, up from the previous year’s $12.9 billion.

Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) was one of the big positive surprises, after a tough couple of years for the bank. Wells announced that its dividend will increase to $0.43 per share in the third quarter, and that it plans to spend as much as $24.5 billion on buybacks over the next year — a sharp increase from the past year’s $11.5 billion. JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) is raising its dividend by 43% to $0.80 per quarter, and is planning to buy back as much as $20.7 billion in shares over the next year, a mild increase from its 2017 capital plan, which called for $19.4 billion in buybacks. U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB) plans to increase its dividend by 23% to a quarterly payout of $0.37 and to repurchase as much as $3 billion of its stock over the next year, up from the previous authorization of $2.6 billion. American Express’ (NYSE:AXP) capital plan was closely watched, since the bank had decided to suspend buybacks for the first half of 2018 in order to bolster capital levels. The bank announced that it would repurchase up to $3.4 billion in shares over the next year and also plans to raise its quarterly dividend from $0.35 to $0.39 per share.

    The deal with Weichai Power, moreover, is noteworthy in that it distinguishes Ballard from its fuel-cell peer, Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG). Although the material handling equipment market has been its bread and butter, Plug Power has made inroads in broadening its reach into the electric-vehicle market in the U.S., and management is keen on expanding its footprint in China. On the company’s recent Q2 earnings call, however, management noted that it has failed to find a worthy partner. It seems, therefore, that in the race to the Chinese electric-vehicle market, Ballard has taken the pole position.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

Boeing Co.’s (NYSE: BA) share price added about 2.8% last week to maintain its position as the best performing among the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). Shares gained $8.04 last week to boost the year-to-date gain to nearly 89%.

Of the three other stocks closest to Boeing’s yearly gain, Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) rose by about 1.9% to a gain of over 58% for the year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) added about 2.7% to close the week up just over 50% for the year to date and Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) tacked on 1.8% to bring its annual gain to nearly 46%.

Last week was a busy one for Boeing, at least for its public affairs staff. The company raised its dividend, approved a new share buyback program, lost a military jet order to Canada, lost a multibillion passenger jet order to arch-rival Airbus and then read the news about the shake-up at the top of its European competitor.

As expected, Boeing lifted its dividend following Monday’s board of directors meeting. The 20% increase, from $5.68 to $6.84 annually per share, was accompanied by a new share repurchase plan valued at $18 billion. The company posted a new 52-week high on Tuesday.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cray Inc(CRAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Gardner:There’sa lot of biotech and some computer companies. We once visited the Cray Corporation (NASDAQ:CRAY), which was one of the early supercomputer companies.Seymour Cray was one of the pioneers of supercomputing. If you look up Cray Computers, they were the supercomputers back in the 80s, when computers were a lot bigger than they are today, andprobably slower, but they were super back then. Anyway,that was a Minneapolis company I once visited. Our dad used to take us, occasionally, on trips. We’d just drop by corporate headquarters and talk to an investor relations person. That was one of the times I did that. Itwasn’t like I did it dozens of times. We did maybe five or six times. ButI’ll always remember Cray Computer.
