Market Wrap-Up for Jan.26 (ROK, BA, COP, ABT, DD, more)

I’m sure most people could have written the script we heard last night on what the U.S. needs to do to turn things around. The problems are obvious (lack of jobs), but the solutions are not. Unfortunately the problem with politicians is that most of the time, they recant the issues we already know – get the standard applause when they say things need to change – but rarely offer up any solutions. I find it fairly comical how the mood shifts occur and all of a sudden what the President is saying is good for the market. I’ve got news for everybody: the market already expected what the President was going to talk about. Folks, we have gone from Dow 6600 to Dow 12,000 in a matter of 20 months. What, you didn’t think the President would get business-friendly? I have never met a politician that hasn’t changed his/her stripes to get on the right side of the track when their political career is on the line. If you toughed out the bear market by just putting capital into names that were still on our recommended list at the time, your returns would be unbelievable right now. Despite the recent rally, we are still looking for more buying opportunities going forward. The job of putting capital to work never stops and neither does our job in finding the best dividend stocks for your investment portfolio. I remember my baseball coach yelling at one of the kids at our team that loved to get on base by just watching pitches and walking. If you don’t swing the bat, you’ll never know how special a player you can become, and that holds true for investors too! Sitting in cash is the equivalent of just taking walks. Don’t worry about getting an uptick the minute you buy shares, or waiting for that magical perfect entry point. Just get back in the game already! Speaking of swinging the bat, we added two new names to our recommended list today (there have been a total of six new names added this week). Be sure to check the link below for the names in case you didn’t read the e-mail alert we sent out earlier. The markets briefly touched over Dow 12K on the back of the State of the Union euphoria as well as the Federal Reserve deciding to leave rates once again (certainly …

2011 Stock Market Predictions

2011 Stock Market Predictions

I have no idea what will happen in 2011. None whatsoever… But who would? Main Street has just about given up on Wall Street, withdrawing some $77 billion from mutual funds. We’ve watched as Bernanke lied to us about dollar monetization and inflationary threats… We witnessed the Fed pump billions into the pipelines, the fight over health care, Greece’s implosion, imbecilic actions in D.C., stupidity on trading room floors, unrest in Europe, dollar devaluations… and so much more. And someone is supposed to know what’s coming next? As we say goodbye to 2010, here’s what the smart money seems to be betting on: Commodities will continue to explode. Gold will rally to $1,500. Silver will break $30… again. Copper will nail new highs. And oil could easily run amok above $100 a barrel again. Coal will spike higher. FBR Capital just upped 2011-2012 coal prices by about 9.5% and 5.8%. “Part of our steam-coal price forecast is tied to higher exports and raising our natural-gas price forecast to $5.50 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf),” they said. And there’s news of power plant coal shortages in China, which supports higher demand. Buy if you haven’t yet. Rare earth stocks will skyrocket on supply-demand issues. China is increasing tariffs, and there’s no end to low export quotas out of China… Molycorp (MCP), Rare Earth Elements (REE), the Rare Earth ETF (REMX), and our $1.50 Greenland stock will pick up momentum. Buy rare earths now. Housing will not recover— not until 2014 at the earliest. And banks will suffer. Mortgage troubles are rising as prices continue to fall in vulnerable markets; there aren’t enough buyers to pick up the overhang, declines, or coming foreclosures. Even RealtyTrac doesn’t see a recovery until 2014. And don’t forget that mortgage rates will rise again in 2011, dampening any demand and cutting back on affordability. The agflation threat will continue to increase …

The 2011 Dogs of the Dow

Filed in boeing, BP, dividend, GOld juniors, Gold Market, o, outperform by on December 16, 2010 0 Comments

It’s time to buy into the Dogs of the Dow theory again… that time of year when investors buy the 10 Dow stocks with the highest dividend yields, cash out by the next year’s end, and repeating. And the theory in practice isn’t too shabby… Dogs of the Dow Track Record: In 1996, they were up 29%. In 1997, they were up 22%. In 1998, they ran up 11% And in 1999, they ran up another 4% In 2000, they were up 6.4%. In 2001, they were down 5% and down another 9% in 2002, both of which still outperformed the major indices in tough market times. And despite the bear market of 2000 to 2002, Dogs of the Dow raced 29% higher in 2003. By 2004, they ran up 4.4%, giving back 5% by 2005. By 2006, Dogs of the Dow ran up 30.3%. In 2007, the Dogs came in with flat returns. In 2008, they fell 38.8% as compared to the Dow’s 31.9% loss. In 2009, they flew 16.9% higher as compared to the Dow’s 22.7% rise. For 2010, so far the Dogs are up about 14% vs. a 10% rise in the Dow. Here’s the logic. The Dow holds 30 big, blue chips. When you buy these stocks with the highest yields, you’re buying the high quality companies that are out of favor on Wall Street… making them bargains. To profit well from the theory, invest in equal amount in each of the 10 stocks. The 2010 Dogs of the Dow included: AT&T Inc. (T) Verizon (VZ) DuPont (DD) Pfizer (PFE) Kraft Foods (KFT) Merck (MRK) Chevron (CVX) McDonald’s (MCD) Home Depot (HD) Boeing (BA) As for 2011, here’s the most likely list: AT&T (T) with a 5.84% yield Verizon (VZ) with a 5.72% yield Merck (MRK) with a 4.21% yield Pfizer (PFE) with a 4.19% yield Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) with a 3.49% yield DuPont (DD) with a 3.38% yield Intel (INTC) with a 3.35% yield Chevron (CVX) with a 3.26% yield And General Electric (GE) with a 3.18% yield Remember, if you play this theory, invest an equal amount in each of the Dogs. Best of luck. The 2011 Dogs of the Dow originally appeared in Wealth Daily . Wealth Daily is a free daily newsletter featuring contrarian investment insights and commentary.

Market Wrap-Up for Nov.19 (NKE, WLT, CLF, WYNN, DIS, BA, more)

Filed in boeing, dividend, earnings, Federal Reserve, Gold Investing, lead, o, updates by on November 19, 2010 0 Comments

It’s been pretty amazing to see the trend of quick morning spikes, followed by 5-6 hours of a tight trading range whenever we get the triple digit gains on the Dow (which we saw again yesterday). This type of action certainly stirs the pot for market conspiracy theorists. We all know the Federal Reserve has been active in the financial markets with liquidity, so the action should not be too much of a shock. The key thing to watch is if the pattern starts to change. Here at Dividend.com, we’ve been able to successfully navigate through any sort of market environment as we look for the best dividend investment opportunities we can find. Investors need to focus on this area as well. There have been too many people that have remained on the sidelines for fear of the markets tumbling. Sitting in cash for long periods of time rarely makes for the best strategy. We’re certainly not known here as the most bullish of market pundits, but we don’t want investors to get hooked on trying to time the markets either. We still have a number of potential new recommendations we are eying, but also know that we may need to make changes to our current list if need be. As we look at today’s action, there were some well-known plays that powered higher, despite the sluggish averages. Nike ( NKE ), Wynn Resorts ( WYNN ), Walter Energy ( WLT ), and Cliffs Natural Resources ( CLF ) paced the gainers’ list. On the flipside, Disney ( DIS ) and Boeing ( BA ) were a couple of weak performers. Be sure to check out the “Market Themes” video for some notes on this week’s action and a look toward next week. Speaking of next week’s holiday-shortened trading, there will be fewer earnings on the board, but we will be getting reports from Deere ( DE ), Tiffany ( TIF ) and Analog Devices ( ADI ), to name a few. Be sure to catch up with our latest watchlist updates this weekend on Dividend.com Premium, and as always, you can view our current recommendations on our industry-leading Best Dividend Stocks List.

Clarity on Boeing (NYSE:BA) 787 Incident Emerges

Concerns were high when Boeing (NYSE:BA) had an electric fire on a 787 which some though could result in the need for a complete re-design.
