was going to buy shares, but Raymond James downgrade made me pause
First rule do not rush into purchasing any stock if you goal is to build wealth with those investments. I would urge you to do your own research on various companies that pay dividends and the industries they are in. Research the company and management. Read their annual reports for the past few years to get an understanding of what their long term goals are for the company. How the compnay has performed, how much debt the company has and how much it puts into Research and Development. I would also recommend 2 books for you to read, Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham and Stocks for the Long Run by Jeremy J. Siegel.
Stocks you may want to research for your own portfolio, J&J, JPM, PG, D, SO, ETP, CSCO. these are just a few stock in different industries.
