    Roku stock falls after Needham turns less bullish

    Shares of Roku Inc. are bucking an uptrend for tech stocks on Wednesday morning, after Needham analyst Laura Martin lowered her price target to $48 from $85 while maintaining a buy rating on the shares.

    When will ‘good’ Donald Trump show up again and fuel a real Santa rally?

    Ever since the dawn of his presidency, Wall Street has had to decide which Donald Trump it was dealing with — the “good” Trump or the “bad” Trump. The “good” Trump cut corporate taxes and regulations, while the “bad” Trump shut down immigration, bullied CEOs about keeping jobs in the U.S., and threatened tariff wars with key trading partners. Over the past few weeks, the “bad” Trump has returned, and stocks have reeled.

    5 Bargain Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

    'Tis the season to go bargain hunting for stocks. It might not feel like it, what with the Dow Jones Industrial Average having kicked off December by shedding nearly 1,200 points, but now is the time to do some holiday shopping in the market, especially in dividend stocks. After all, as Warren Buffett likes to say, "Be greedy when others are fearful." And the way the market has been behaving lately, it's pretty clear that fear abounds. The general retreat in share prices means valuations are down and yields are up. (Dividend yields and stock prices move in opposite directions.) That has made several large-cap, high-quality dividend stocks look mighty tempting. The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index currently trades at 15 times expected earnings, according to Yardeni Research. To find bargains, we scoured the broad-market index for large companies that trade for less than 15 times projected earnings. At the same time, we limited our search to dependable dividend payers with yields of at least 3%. After taking long-term earnings growth forecasts and analysts' opinions into account, the following five names stood out as bargain dividend stocks to buy now.
