Dividends4Life: 6 Triple Threat Stocks to Buy

6 Triple Threat Stocks to Buy

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 19, 2015 | | 0 comments »

To add some stability, we looked for stocks with beta coefficients of less than 1, which typically implies that a stock is less volatile than the broader market. Although it will tend to lag when the market is rising, it also will hold up better when everything is selling off. True, these are some pretty boring stocks to buy, but the combination of better-than-average growth and healthy payouts should drive market-beating total returns over the longer haul. They also should help you sleep better at night. Read on for these six triple threat stocks to buy:

Arthur J Gallagher & Co. (AJG) is an under-the-radar stock with a low P/E getting a lot of love from Wall Street. Indeed, of the 20 analysts covering the stock, 14 call it a “buy.” Darden Restaurants (DRI) looks like an entirely different stock ever since it sold the Red Lobster chain to focus on Olive Garden and its other brands. GameStop (GME) was supposed to be the next Blockbuster — just another a retailer laid low by the digital delivery of its main product. Maxim Integrated Products (MXIM) isn’t as well known as some other chip makers, but even while operating in a highly cyclical industry, MXIM has managed to be a remarkably steady total return engine.As a tobacco company, you don’t expect Reynolds American (RAI) to have an above-average growth forecast. Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) stock has been struggling ever since it missed quarterly estimates in May, but with a solid long-term growth forecast, reasonable P/E and above-average dividend, SMG looks like a stable, if boring, holding.
