Hot Safest Stocks For 2019

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions. 

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

Top Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) has made a lot of efforts in pricing its goods attractively over the past months. This allowed for strong traffic growth, which resulted in positive comps for the company. Subsequently, Wal-Mart’s shares have been performing much better than those of its peers, which are reporting worse comp sales. Due to Wal-Mart’s power when it comes to discussing prices with its suppliers, the company is able to price its goods attractively whilst generating strong margins, which, in turn, means that the earnings power of Wal-Mart remains high (despite the low prices Wal-Mart offers its goods at), which makes Wal-Mart a compelling retail investment.

Top Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Ever since Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) purchased Spectra Energy early last year, Spectra Energy Partners (NYSE:SEP) has been the best-performing subsidiary in its portfolio — and last quarter, it posted yet another set of solid results. For investors in Spectra Energy Partners, though, these strong earnings may be all for naught, as Enbridge is preparing to roll all of its subsidiaries up into the parent company in a way that may not be particularly beneficial to shareholders.

Let’s take a look at Spectra’s most recent results, why Enbridge is fully merging Spectra into itself, and why investors might not be too excited about the current buyout offer.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO) is not only a Dividend Aristocrat, it’s a Dividend King as well.

The Dividend Aristocrats are a select group of 51 companies in the S&P 500 Index, with 25+ consecutive years of dividend increases. The Dividend Kings have increased their dividends for 50+ consecutive years.

KO stock has a dividend yield of 3.3%, which is well above the S&P 500 average yield of 2%. And, Coca-Cola is likely to continue raising its dividend each year.

But this is a difficult time for Coca-Cola and KO stock holders. Consumer preferences are changing, and soda consumption is declining in the U.S.

Because Coca-Cola’s earnings growth has slowed, the stock does not appear to be undervalued. However, it remains a high-quality business with strong brands, and an attractive dividend yield.

KO Stock and Business Overview

Coca-Cola was founded in 1892. Today, it is the world’s largest beverage company. It owns or licenses more than 500 non-alcoholic beverages, including both sparkling and still beverages.
