Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Cummins Inc.(CMI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Furthermore, having a strong financial partner in Total to help it drive adoption of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles at this time could be a huge win. Prices of oil (and therefore diesel) have been steadily climbing over the past year, and the highly anticipated near-zero-emissions natural gas engine from Cummins (NYSE:CMI) and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT) is now being shipped to customers.

    Cyclical companies see plenty of ups and downs by their very nature, and after 10 years of economic expansion, U.S. investors are rightfully starting to wonder if a reversal of fortune lies dead ahead. For engine maker Cummins (NYSE:CMI), 2018 has been a great year for growth, but it’s hard for a company that large to sustain strong momentum indefinitely.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    The near-zero natural gas engines were created by a joint venture between Cummins (NYSE:CMI) and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT), called Cummins Westport. Unveiled on May 1, the engine lineup can be used in medium- and heavy-duty trucks, including buses, refuse vehicles, and long-haul trucks. In fact, the ISX 12N engine, as it is called, is the world’s first Class 8 on-highway truck engine to be certified near-zero by the California Air Resources Board, which sets emission standards that are followed by 16 other states. The Tesla Semi and Nikola One are both Class 8 vehicles, or what most people refer to as semis.
