Dividends4Life: Stocks For The New Year

Stocks For The New Year

Posted by D4L | Saturday, December 31, 2011 | | 0 comments »

We have reached the final weeks of 2011. At this time, the S&P500 (SPY) shows a loss of 1.1% for the year and the 10-year treasury bond yield is 1.86% (144 basis point loss for the year). It has not been a great year for stocks globally, especially with the European Credit Crisis. On a positive note, the US Congress agreed to a 2-month extension of payroll tax cuts and avoided another shutdown. Now that Christmas is upon us, it is time to look forward to the New Year!

This week I have selected 2 dividend growth stocks in the transportation industry. This is the first sector to come out of the trough of the business cycle and these stocks should perform well in 2012. My third stock selection is in the technology sector, which faces many headwinds in 2012, including the downtrend in the semiconductor cycle, flood damage in Thailand to hard drive plants, and a recession in Europe. 1. # United Parcel Service, Inc. (UPS), 2. Union Pacific Corporation (UNP) and 3. Intel Corporation (INTC).
