3 High Yield StocksInvesting in dividends stocks is popular among investors. The right dividend stocks can produce magnificent long-term growth in a portfolio. One of the beauties of the stock market is that prices are unpredictable. Dividends, in contrast, are an excellent form of investment as they are not typically dependent on the financial health and growth of a company. Know this; dividend yields and stock prices move in opposite directions, and a .

Dividend-Paying Stocks: Are They Too “Slow-Growth?”

By Wednesday, May 6, 2015
dividend paying stocksCountless earnings reports are still hitting the Street—and a lot of them are from dividend-paying stocks. It hasn’t been a bad first-quarter earnings season overall. We know that sales growth is pretty slow for brand-name businesses. And those companies generating double-digit growth on the stock market are expensively priced. In a slow-growth world, I still feel that dividends are an important component to portfolio management and that investing in dividend-paying .

Two Dividend-Paying Stocks That Can Beat the Market

By Friday, May 1, 2015
Dividend Paying StocksNow that we know that first-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) was anemic and the Federal Reserve is thinking about changing interest rates, individual stock selection is even more key in this market. And I still like dividend-paying stocks; they can outperform with sales and earnings growth slowing. In a rising-rate environment, dividend-paying stocks can perform less favorably. Utility stocks, for example, recently sold off on the central bank’s talk about .

Spring Stock Market Forecast: Signs of Slowing & Consolidation

By Friday, April 24, 2015
Spring Stock Market ForecastThere’s a tremendous amount of noise surrounding the stock market. And so it’s important to cut through it to focus on what really matters as an equity investor: what corporations are actually saying about their businesses. Even though the stock market is a secondary pricing mechanism anchored by monetary policy, it is a system that generally tries to discount a future stream of earnings. With so much institutional money floating .

Early 1Q15 Earnings Forecast: Decent Bottom Line, Disappointing Sales

By Friday, March 20, 2015
1Q15 Earnings ForecastFirst-quarter earnings season is on the horizon and early reporters, so far, are revealing the same results we got in 4Q14—a decent bottom line, but sales coming up short. So far, my early 1Q15 earnings forecast predicts a boring reporting season. Oracle Among Companies Keeping Investor Interest with Dividend Boosts Several important benchmark companies report just before the calendar quarter closes. One such company is Oracle Corporation (ORCL).

4Q14 Earnings Season Uneventful; Five Stocks to Consider for Steady Return

By Wednesday, February 25, 2015
4Q14 Stock Summary4Q14 Stock Summary: Fourth-Quarter Earnings Season a Bore We’re now in the lull between earnings seasons, and stocks will trade off economic news and geopolitical events. Fourth-quarter earnings season was fairly uneventful. It seemed that investors basically ignored the results, unsure of whether to buy a market that’s already gone up. There’s been continued strength among technology stocks, and the NASDAQ Composite recently broke out convincingly over 4,750, where it .

Airgas: One Company with Strong Potential for Stock Market Investors

By Monday, November 17, 2014
Airgas for Reasonable, Consistent GrowthIncome-seeking investors, who are typically more likely to be risk-averse, are now having difficulty finding value in a stock market that’s gone up tremendously. The huge reduction in the spot price of oil has certainly offered up more value than when the price was steadily around $100.00 a barrel. Although not cheap by any means, I like Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI), which is in the process of acquiring its limited .

Trailing 12-month Price/earnings multiple (Most Recent Quarter)

17.44

Dow Jones Industrial Average Dividend Yield 2.62%
10-year U.S. Treasury Yield 2.19%

Immediate term outlook:
The bear market rally in stocks that started in March 2009, extended because of unprecedented central bank money printing, is coming to an end. Gold bullion is up $1,000 an ounce since we first recommended it in 2002 and we are still bullish on the physical metal.

Short-to-medium term outlook:
World economies are entering their slowest growth period since 2009. The Chinese economy grew last year at its slowest pace in 24 years. Japan is in recession. The eurozone is in depression. With almost half the S&P 500 companies deriving revenue outside the U.S., slower world economic growth will negatively impact revenue and earnings growth of American companies. Domestically, America’s gross domestic product grew by only a meager 2.3% in the second quarter, which will negatively impact an already overpriced equity market.
