    If you’re retired, you’ve likely shifted from building your nest egg to trying to live off of your savings. That means you’ll want to look at stocks that are relatively safe and pay a generous dividend. Investors have punished the stocks of giant U.S. utility Southern Company (NYSE:SO) and packaged-food specialist General Mills (NYSE:GIS) for what are likely to be near-term problems, leading to big dividend yields.

  • [By ]

    Southern Company (NYSE: SO)
    An old go-to “widows and orphans” utility stock, Southern Company shares are down 18% from their 52-week high. The fear is that rising rates equal higher borrowing costs, resulting in compressed margins posing a clear and present danger to the stock’s enviable 5.3% dividend yield.

  • [By ]

    And while it’s imperative that you don’t risk money you’re going to count on in the next several years in investments that can quickly lose a lot of value and be very slow to — if ever — recover, high-quality dividend stocks can still serve an important part in providing the best mix of income for today and long-term capital appreciation for down the road. To help you find the best dividend stocks for your retirement, three Motley Fool investors did some research and came back with Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), Southern Co. (NYSE:SO), and Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE:KMI).

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2019: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.(CHKP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of cybersecurity outfit Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) have been underperforming for the past year. As cyberattacks have gained notoriety, lots of competition has cropped up and taken a bite out of the company’s market share. Even with an attractive valuation, it may not be time yet for investors to double down on Check Point as the business gets serious about marketing new security tools.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    For investors looking for a cybersecurity stock, I think a bigger security company like Palo Alto Networks or Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) would be a better option. At this juncture, I think FireEye’s high expenditures and sluggish revenue growth outweigh the potential benefits of buying the stock.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Those numbers look dismal compared to the company’s cybersecurity peers. For example, Symantec’s bigger industry peer Check Point Software (NASDAQ:CHKP)is expected to post 2% sales growth and 5% earnings growth, yet its stock trades at just 17 times this year’s earnings.

  • [By ]

    Check Point Software Technologies (Nasdaq: CHKP) plummeted 6.4% when it only slightly beat Q1 expectations but guided lower for the year. Cybersecurity has gotten more competitive recently, and the company reported a 12% increase in marketing expenses through the first quarter. That spooked investors on the potential for slower sales growth and weaker profitability.

    Nonetheless, there are many smaller players with slick investor presentations making promises of big rewards.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019: Sandstorm Gold Ltd(SAND )

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Sandstorm Gold (NYSEMKT:SAND) has outperformed the precious metal itself over the past year, with shares rising 35% year to date. Last month it reported third-quarter profits of $7 million, a big U-turn from 2015, when it suffered losses of $5.5 million. In fact, its entire operation was doing better with greater production: lower cash costs, but higher cash margins; and greater operating cash flows, all of which allowed it to pay down its revolving credit facility. That means it has no bank debt and its entire $110 million revolving credit facility is available to make acquisitions.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019: Meritage Corporation(MTH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    WhenMeritage Homes Corp(NYSE:MTH) last reported earnings to wrap up fiscal 2016, it left investors with reason to be concerned. The company finished the year with strong 15% home-closing revenue growth in the fourth quarter, 19% home-closing revenue growth for the full year, and a 15% jump in earnings per share for the year. Unfortunately, the homebuilder reported that its unit sales, and that its backlog of homes on order, were down from the year-ago period in the fourth quarter — not a positive metric considering the general strength of the new homes market and the company’s success in expanding and growing in recent years.

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Next week is big for housing numbers. March existing home sales figures are scheduled for  Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE: HD) and Lowe’s Companies Inc (NYSE: LOW), before we get a more complete snapshot of the housing market.

Best Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2018

After struggling through deregulation, high oil prices, and a lengthy recession, airline stocks have rebounded in synchronization with the US stock market, with better global economies, and generally as a leading US economic indicator. A simple comparison of the six largest US airlines gives an encouraging picture of the recovery.

Of course, investors should be aware that airlines legendarily compete head-on in most markets: United, for example, has just said that despite stronger-than-expected fourth quarter revenues, it will add capacity and match others’ low prices.

daily stock market report: Paragon Offshore plc (PGNPQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Paragon Offshore’s (OTCPK:PGNPQ) former management’s audacious efforts to omit parts of the senior secured lenders by deeming them unimpaired and instead pay out the majority of the company’s cash to junior unsecured bondholders by presenting a set of entirely unrealistic business forecasts to the court. Fortunately, in case of Paragon Offshore, the bankruptcy judge recognized the framing and accordingly denied confirmation of the company’s plan of reorganization, effectively sending Paragon Offshore back to the drawing board. Consequently, management was ousted after the failure. I have covered the Paragon Offshore saga in a series of articles over the past few quarters, so interested investors might want to take a look at this highly fascinating and still evolving case study.

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    With even brand new rigs struggling to find work, the jig was soon up for owners of old equipment, like Paragon Offshore (OTCPK:PGNPQ), which is currently undergoing its second debt restructuring in less than three years of independent existence. Likewise, drillers with a fondness for aggressive use of debt were soon in trouble, most notably, former high-flier Seadrill (SDRL) and its little brother North Atlantic Drilling (NADL), which will no doubt file for restructuring within months. As a consequence of the crisis, the OSD industry now has a number of participants without a large debt burden, either new entrants like Borr Drilling, or established competitors that have had debt reduced in a restructuring, such as Ocean Rig (ORIG), to be followed within this year by others, almost certainly including each of SDRL, NADL, and Pacific Drilling (PACD).

    Our No. 2 pick, Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN), is involved in engineering technology for defense systems, government electronics, and information technology. Its largest and most profitable segments are Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) and Missile Systems (MS).

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has been one of the pot-election winners that benefitted from the so-called “trump Bump” due to higher military spending ambitions. It turns out that the hype behind higher defense spending is giving this military equipment giant confidence to boost its dividend handily.

    Key holdings in ITA include…

    Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) makes a full range of unmanned vehicles. That means it can cover air, land, and sea assignments for both military and commercial uses. The company is widely known for military drones like the Desert Hawk III, used by the U.K. military to surveil suspected terrorists. It also makes the Marlin, an oceangoing drone that can conduct underwater surveys and inspections. Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) makes unmanned aircraft for defense applications naturally. It’s also collaborating with Yamaha Corp. (NYSE ADR: YAMCY) to develop an autonomous helicopter with onboard intelligence-gathering equipment for such civilian uses as search and rescue and forest-fire monitoring. Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) is a great backend play because of its drone-support platform. The Common Ground Control System is an open-format control station that can be used to control all manner of UAVs. I expect the system to be adapted for commercial/industrial use as well.

    As exciting as ITA’s drone exposure is, we also get a nice kicker with this ETF – defense spending.

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    If you’re looking for one of thebest investments today, it’s hard to beat Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN). It doesn’t matter if the market is up or down, defense spending continues to increase. In the past year, global annual defense spending hit $1.6 trillion, and this is considered to be an industry that is likely to continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
