    Shares of defense titans Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) all underperformed the S&P 500 in the 12 months leading up to when the Budget Control Act was signed in August 2011, a period when the tension between different congressional factions intensified, with shares of individual companies dropping between 7% and 13% during the first two weeks of August alone.

    This company, like other major defense prime contractors, had a very solid year and is also on the Merrill Lynch US 1 list. General Dynamics Corp. (NYSE: GD) is engaged in business aviation, land and expeditionary combat vehicles and systems, armaments, munitions, shipbuilding and marine systems, and information systems and technologies.

    In addition to increasing the dividend, Action Alerts PLUS holding Raytheon announced in late March that under the Department of Defense’s DARPA program, it was developing technology that could control swarms of both air-based, and ground-based drone vehicles that might be launched using a “drag and drop” visual interface. My price target: $245.

    General Dynamics (GD)

    This is one firm where we have already seen cash flows and margins improving. GD is also another defense name that increased their dividend in March. Think the Navy gets some love in the 2018 federal budget that earmarked $654 billion for the Pentagon? Me too. Know who runs the Virginia class submarine program? General Dynamics. In fact, the Navy just awarded a $696 million modification to that program for 2019.

  • [By ]

    Cramer and Moreno also looked at General Dynamics (GD) which peaked in early March, before starting a downtrend until Tuesday. Last week, General Dynamics fell to the lower end of its channel, but then it bounced right to the high end, and Wednesday it firmly broke out above the high end of this channel. The stochastic oscillator, which is a powerful momentum indicator is making a bullish crossover, and based on today’s move, Moreno thinks General Dynamics can return to its old highs at $230.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Own Right Now: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Matthew Frankel, CFP, and Neha Chamaria]

    So we asked three of our Motley Fool contributors to each highlight a dividend stock they see as a great investment today, and added the extra twist of requiring the stock to have a yield higher than 5%. Here’s why they picked pipeline company MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX), healthcare real estate investment trust HCP Inc. (NYSE:HCP), and asset manager Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) currently expects to increase its 7.1%-yielding distribution by 10% this year. Furthermore, the MLP has $2.2 billion of expansion projects underway, which should fuel it to keep growing the payout in the future. However, an interesting catalyst developed earlier in the year when MPLX’s parent company, refining giant Marathon Petroleum, agreed to buy fellow refiner Andeavor. What makes that deal interesting to MPLX is that Andeavor owns several midstream assets as well as a stake in MLP Andeavor Logistics. It seems highly likely that Marathon will eventually sell those midstream assets to MPLX as well as merge the two MLPs. Those transactions have the potential to move the needle for MPLX, which is what makes it a compelling company to watch.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That’s why those who like dividends will undoubtedly love what Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) have to offer. Not only does this trio of energy midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) pay well-above-average dividends that currently have yields of between 5.6% and 7.2%, but they have consistently increased their payment rate each quarter. With those payouts on rock-solid ground and more growth in the forecast, this trio of MLPs is perfect for dividend fans.

    Chuy’s (NASDAQ:CHUY) was downgraded by equities researchers at ValuEngine from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a research report issued to clients and investors on Friday.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Industries run into hot and cold spells, but the best companies find ways to navigate through the tough times and come out stronger than ever. For Tex-Mex restaurant chain Chuy’s Holdings (NASDAQ:CHUY), its expansion beyond its home market in the capital of the Lone Star State into new locations across the nation has been exciting. It’s also come with plenty of challenges, though, and shareholders in Chuy’s have had to endure rising competition and operational headwinds as the company tries to establish itself as a national player within a crowded space.

    News headlines about Chuy’s (NASDAQ:CHUY) have been trending somewhat positive this week, Accern Sentiment Analysis reports. The research group identifies positive and negative press coverage by reviewing more than twenty million blog and news sources in real time. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of -1 to 1, with scores closest to one being the most favorable. Chuy’s earned a media sentiment score of 0.15 on Accern’s scale. Accern also gave headlines about the restaurant operator an impact score of 46.3414123476192 out of 100, meaning that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the stock’s share price in the near future.

    Arcos Dorados (NYSE: ARCO) and Chuy’s (NASDAQ:CHUY) are both small-cap retail/wholesale companies, but which is the superior stock? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their dividends, risk, institutional ownership, earnings, profitability, valuation and analyst recommendations.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    As an investor, it’s always hard when a company you love doesn’t see things go its way. I ate at Tex-Mex chain Chuy’s Holdings (NASDAQ:CHUY) original Austin locations hundreds of times during my time in Texas’ capital city, and eating at not one but two of its Houston-area restaurants on a recent trip to my hometown was a highlight of my time there. Yet despite my own contributions toward boosting Chuy’s sales performance, the company’s broader fortunes have remained mixed, and a brutally competitive restaurant industry has made it hard for Chuy’s to keep itself moving forward despite its ambitious expansion efforts.

Top Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Bargains along the Las Vegas strip are good news for gamblers and bad news for casino investors.

MGM Resorts (MGM) sparked more pain for the gambling sector when it warned Thursday that bookings and room prices in the third quarter were lower than expected.

The guidance sent shares of MGM, which also reported sharply lower second quarter earnings, down about 3% in early trading. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Penn National Gaming (PENN) were also trading lower on the news.

CEO Jim Murren downplayed the significance of the lag in bookings, saying the summer months are tough for Vegas hotels and that he expects a pickup at the end of the year.

“You guys get so worked up about a couple of weeks,” Murren said on a call with analysts Thursday. “Do we think there is anything structurally going on in Vegas? The answer is no. If I shared that concern, I would tell you. We’re going to be stronger in the fourth quarter going into next year.”

MGM’s decline followed a wild day for casino stocks on Wednesday. Caesar’s Entertainment (CZR) fell as much as 24% and trading was halted several times after it reported weakness in third quarter as well.

Yields are now 50% higher than they were back in July. And these Treasury bonds, or "T-bonds," have collapsed in price.   But that has given us a fantastic risk/reward setup today…   Let's start by looking at this chart of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT)…

Top Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

Goldman Sachs thinks it’s time to pull the plug on Tesla’s stock.

David Tamberrino, an analyst at the influential Wall Street investment bank, downgraded Tesla’s stock to a “sell” rating on Monday morning. It’s pretty rare for analysts to be that negative about a high-profile company.

Tesla’s stock fell nearly 5% Monday and shares are now down more than 10% since the company reported its latest financial results last week. Tamberrino lowered his price target only slightly, from $190 to $185.

But a price of $185 is more than 25% below the $257 level it closed at on Friday. Shares were trading around $246 Monday following the downgrade.

Although Tesla (TSLA) recently said there’s strong demand for its Model S and Model X electric cars as well as the upcoming Model 3 — Tesla’s more affordable vehicle that should be available later this year — investors are nervous about all that Tesla has on its plate.

Tesla also recently bought SolarCity, an alternative energy company that is run by two cousins of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
