The economy has been in slow-but-sure recovery over the past several years, but is finally starting to hit the gas. The U.S. is leading the way and now the economy is doing the best it has in years. You’d think that would mean good things for Wynn Resorts (NYSE:WYNN), Wynn stock and other casino names.
When investors think of big dividend yields, telecom stocks like Verizon (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T (NYSE:T) come to mind. I am personally long AT&T, but that’s because I was able to buy at a very low level amid the M&A turmoil with Time Warner. Now though, investors are probably wondering if it’s too late to get
Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) stands at a crossroads. The world’s largest casino company has not built a new casino since it completed its 6th casino in China in 2016. Now, Las Vegas Sands stock finds itself in decline as a U.S.-China trade war concerns its investors. However, with Chinese gambling on the rise, high dividends,
The markets have finally appeared to reassert themselves after suffering several months of wild choppiness. But even with this newfound bullishness, I’m angling for dividend stocks to buy. These aren’t merely empty words, as I’ll demonstrate later in this article. This summer, my InvestorPlace colleague Vince Martin wrote an excellent piece detailing the nitty-gritty of
U.S. equities stumbled out of the gate on Wednesday, continuing their recent bout of weakness as a number of high-beta large-cap technology stocks suffered a round of selling pressure. Stocks in the periphery of the “FAANGs” such as semiconductor and cloud computing names also rolled over. The catalyst is the ongoing Capitol Hill hearings with
No matter where we are in the cycle, it’s always good to remind ourselves of what worked and what didn’t. In 2017, while Wall Street forecasted a rough year, ended with quite the opposite happening. Benchmark indices hit all-time records, while most sectors witnessed tremendous optimism. In 2018, the long-running bull market took a breather
After several months of volatility, tech-heavy indexes are back near their all-time highs, and bullish investors look ready to push things even higher. The world’s tech leaders have dominated Wall Street over the past two years, and now, investors might have a fresh chance to buy these red-hot stocks as they look to establish a
Whether it’s through stocks, bonds, ETFs, or other types of securities, all investors love seeing their portfolios score big returns. However, when you’re an income investor, your primary focus is generating consistent cash flow from each of your liquid investments. While cash flow can come from bond interest or interest from other types of investments,
Getting big returns from financial portfolios, whether through stocks, bonds, ETFs, other securities, or a combination of all, is an investor’s dream. But for income investors, generating consistent cash flow from each of your liquid investments is your primary focus. Cash flow can come from bond interest, interest from other types of investments, and of
All investors love getting big returns from their portfolio, whether it’s through stocks, bonds, ETFs, or other types of securities. But for income investors, generating consistent cash flow from each of your liquid investments is your primary focus. Cash flow can come from bond interest, interest from other types of investments, and of course, dividends.
Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) has gotten into the crowded coffee shop business by buying Costa Coffee from Whitbread plc (OTCMKTS:WTCBF). The deal was announced on Friday morning. Coca-Cola stock rose 40 cents on the move on Friday, but finished down for the day. Coca-Cola stock was up around 1% in morning trading today, exceeding $45 per share,
There is no shortage of dividend stock lists out there. But what sets a good dividend stock apart isn’t simply the dividend payment. If you are going to invest in a dividend stock it should be a worthy investing proposition, period. With or without the dividend. This means that the business is going on the
The fear with Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) stock? Growth and execution. The comfort though? Intel stock has a low valuation and a decent dividend yield. Admittedly, that yield was more attractive before the stock’s big rally, but shouldn’t be ignored as it’s over 2.5%. The stock’s recent underperformance has a lot of investors wondering what to do.
IBM (NYSE:IBM) has been in a prolonged restructuring, and the results have been mixed at best. This is particularly aggravating since various other old-line tech giants like Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE), have staged strong turnarounds. But I think investors should not give up on IBM stock. The fact is that the company
The stock market is on a bull run for the record books. But that sword cuts both ways. Is now really the best time to buy growth, when a correction — or worse — may be just around the corner? If you have some money to invest and you’re not totally convinced that now is
Finding undervalued stocks in today’s market is a tricky business. If you’re a value investor who is looking to beef up your retirement portfolio, it’s essential to choose firms that have fallen out of favor with Mr. Market but look poised to make a comeback once the dust has settled. Hot new tech stocks tend
The market for technology is going through a massive upheaval of disruption. In the past, investing in technology companies was all about the next gizmo that was set to change the market. And the successful companies in this space were those that kept rolling out the next gizmos that made the old ones obsolete and
Tech stocks have been unpredictable at times recently, but the sector has rebounded from volatility strongly, and there is no question that tech has been the leader of the market’s strong multiyear run. However, this might mean that income investors—those focused on finding companies with solid dividends—might be feeling left out, as tech stocks aren’t
Things aren’t going to script right now in the financial sector. It’s a widely established fact (based on years of historical evidence) that banks and other lenders typically prosper when interest rates are rising. In previous rate-tightening cycles, the financial sector was usually among the market’s top performers. As I’ve discussed before in my High-Yield
There’s nothing more thrilling than telling the tale of an incredible trade that dished out massive, short-term gains. Though most of these proverbial “whale hunts” don’t pan out as initially hoped, enough of them do to keep investors ever-searching for them. The fact of the matter is, however, for many investors the bulk of their
