The retreat in share prices is offering investors who want to buy cloud stocks a chance to do so at a discount compared to just a few months ago, even though the financial fundamentals of such businesses have hardly changed. Despite the recent slide of technology stocks, the sales growth of cloud companies — offering software and services on the internet instead of locally on one’s computer — have avoided steep plunges.

2 Stocks With World-Class Dividends

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 09, 2021 | | 0 comments »

The best dividend stocks don't always come with incredibly generous yields. Excessive dividend yields are often a sign of deeply troubled stocks, often overvalued and destined to lose that tremendous payout fairly soon. Seasoned income investors know that they should look for other qualities. A reasonable yield is a good start, but a strong commitment to growing payouts over time is much better. If the dividend checks are financed by rock-solid cash flows, that's even better. And in the end, the underlying business should be poised to deliver these growing, cash-backed dividends for a very long time.

Read on to see how International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill as world-class dividend stocks, each in its own unique way. Big Blue recently joined the exclusive club of Dividend Aristocrats. A symbolic payout increase from $1.62 to $1.63 per share ensured that IBM's payouts have been rising without interruption for 25 straight years. The dividend checks have actually been sent out every quarter since 1916, with a few bumps along the way. Cell tower operator American Tower is a different story. Organized as a real estate investment trust (REIT), American Tower is required to pay out at least 90% of its taxable income in the form of dividends, in order to qualify for blanking out its corporate tax payments. REITs send their excess cash directly to shareholders rather than to Uncle Sam.

Earlier generations have favored dividend investing because generally higher yields were on offer then. Today, though, some investors have become more dedicated to high-flying growth stocks. That’s because many yields are not what they used to be. Investors have noticed. So, in many ways, it makes sense that current investors are typically geared toward these securities rather than boring, old dividend stocks. Still, the crucial thing to note here is that, at the heart of it, dividend stocks are a safe investment. This list is comprised of businesses that are worth billions of dollars and generate robust bottom- and top-line growth. Moreover, these are well-established names with strong histories of dividend growth. Even if they don’t set the markets on fire, they are exactly the kinds of companies that can be vital to your portfolio.

Before we dive deep into these names, though, it’s also important to recognize that this list is curated by dividend yield. That means that instead of looking at the highest dividend by dollar amount, the yield was given preference. This is because it offers the most efficient way to earn a return. So, without further ado, here are seven of the highest-yielding dividend stocks in the S&P 500: AT&T (NYSE:T), Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), Crown Castle International (NYSE:CCI), Pepsico (NASDAQ:PEP), Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM), JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Target (NYSE:TGT).
