3 Dividend Stocks to Power Through Earnings Season

Posted by D4L | Monday, March 18, 2019 | 0 comments »

There are plenty of companies that aren’t on the list of over-hyped stocks that jump and fall on every little morsel of opinions from talking heads on CNBC, particularly during quarterly reporting times. They tend to be dependable businesses and are focused on longer-term shareholders and not day traders. And they pay nice dividends. Each of the following dividend stocks I’m going to explore below has already filed its quarterlies with continued good results without fanfare.

One of the best in this market is AllianceBernstein (NYSE:AB). It has ample AUM, which is up to $550 billion after AB gained $800 million in the last quarter. That is boosting fee income nicely and feeding an ample dividend. One of the best utilities in the market is NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE). The company is primarily comprised of two operating units that take advantage of both the regulated and unregulated power utility market. One of the more reliable segments of the petroleum market is in the midstream segment of the toll-takers of the pipeline market. And one of my favorites dividend stocks in this space is Plains GP Holdings (NYSE:PAGP).

If you want to earn higher yields from your portfolio, then you will want to hear about this stock. That’s because the quiet section of the market that this stock is in pays out safe double-digit yields. Wall Street insiders have long prized this industry for its reliable, steady income. Yet most people have never heard of it. This little-known industry receives minimal coverage in the business press. And right now, we have a rare opportunity to scoop up shares at a bargain price.

Today we have an exciting opportunity at “alternative bank” Annaly Capital Management Inc (NYSE:NLY). My colleague Jing Pan coined the phrase “alternative bank” to describe a certain group of companies that operate like banks. They borrow money at a low interest rate and invest those funds for higher returns elsewhere. The difference? Alternative banks don’t have any branches, bank tellers, or ATMs,. As a result, almost all of their profits go straight to their bottom line. Annaly Capital Management Inc’s main business is investing in mortgage bonds. Analysts consider these loans exceptionally safe, given that the mortgage is the last payment that people skip during a downturn. And because these loans are insured by the U.S. government, “Uncle Sam” will reimburse investors for any losses.

Dividend Aristocrat Trading at a Discount

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 16, 2019 | | 0 comments »

Over the years, few companies have served income investors better than the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats. To become a “Dividend Aristocrat,” a company needs to be an S&P 500 component and must have increased its dividend every year for at least 25 years. A quarter of a century of annual payout increases is no easy feat, especially when you take into account all the ups and downs in our economy during this period. Among all S&P 500 companies, only 57 currently have this title.

That’s why today I want to talk to you about a relatively inexpensive way to tap into top-notch dividend growth: Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (NASDAQ:WBA). If you live in the U.S. or Europe, chances are you have seen some of the company’s stores. WBA’s retail and business brands include “Walgreens,” “Duane Reade,” “Boots,” and “Alliance Healthcare.” Combined, the Deerfield, Illinois-based company has over 18,500 stores in 11 countries around the world. At the same time, Walgreens Boots Alliance operates one of the largest pharmaceutical wholesale and distribution networks in the world. It has over 390 distribution centers delivering to more than 230,000 pharmacies, hospitals, and medical professionals in more than 20 countries.
