    3 Stocks to Trade as Fears of a Recession Return

    Last week's plunge in bond yields is fanning the flames of recession fears once more. Bulls are cowering in their hidey-holes and bears are finally starting to feast -- really for the first time this year. And that gives us an attractive backdrop to begin seeking out weak stocks to trade.Finding stocks to sell has been a challenging endeavor in 2019. Ever since the early-January transformation of the Federal Reserve from hawk to dove, it's been game on for risk assets. But last week's yield curve inversion has investors spooked. * 3 Things to Watch for Cronos Group Stock Ahead of Earnings My weekend scanning found numerous bearish looking charts that are worthy of mention. Today I'll mention the top three stocks to trade. They remain vulnerable to further downside as long as recessions and inverted yield curves dominate the market narrative.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Click to Enlarge Source: ThinkorSwim FedEx (FDX)The bear case for FedEx (NYSE:FDX) shares is compelling on both a technical and fundamental front. To fully feature the depravity of its downturn, I'm featuring a weekly chart. Since topping in early-2018, the transportation titan has cratered 37% and now rests below all major moving averages.The January-February rebound created a classic bear retracement pattern that already triggered to the downside.On the fundamental front, earnings are deteriorating, and during last week's quarterly report the company cited slowing global growth as one of its key concerns moving forward.To bank on continued weakness, buy the May $175/$165 bear put spread for around $3.70. Click to Enlarge Source: ThinkorSwim Caterpillar (CAT)The price action in Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) has echoed the bearish steps of FedEx. CAT stock was demolished in the fourth quarter amid economic slowdown fears, and it has yet to find its footing. Indeed, the daily chart is a volatile mess -- making it one of the top stocks to trade right now.January's large earnings miss and subsequent down-gap in the stock is keeping the sluggish global economy talk in the forefront. With Friday's high volume drop taking CAT back below its 50-day moving average, a new down-leg is upon us. * 7 Marijuana Stocks to Play the CBD Trend The recent uptick in implied volatility is breathing new life into option premiums. So let's create a cash flow play. Sell the April $138/$142 bear call spread for 55 cents. If CAT sits below $138 at expiration, you will capture the max gain of 55 cents. Click to Enlarge Source: ThinkorSwim Bank of America (BAC)For our stock to trade, we're turning to the banking sector. Banks are particularly vulnerable during times when the yield curve inverts due to the pressure it puts on their profitability. Remember, short-term interest rates signify what banks pay depositors and thus represents an expense. Long-term rates represent what they charge when lending and thus represent income.During periods of yield-curve inversion, their income potential drops while expenses stay the same or rise. That's a toxic brew for any company. Tack on the inverted yield curves' impeccable track record for predicting recessions and it's no wonder why banks bit the dust on Friday.Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) upended its recovery efforts by shattering support last week. It's oversold, yes, but there remains little reason to be bullish here.Bet on more pain by purchasing the June $27 puts for around $1.45.As of this writing, Tyler Craig held bearish positions on FDX. Check out his recently released Bear Market Survival Guide to learn how to defend your portfolio against market volatility.

    57 Dividend Stocks You Can Count On in 2019

    Long-term income investors know that yield isn't everything when it comes to dividend stocks. Steadily rising payouts pay off down the road, too.Not only do rising dividends lift the yield on an investor's original cost basis, they're indicative of a firm's ability to withstand the economy's - and the market's - inevitable ups and downs."Dividend growers tend to be quality franchises built to weather diverse market environments," BlackRock portfolio manager Tony DeSpirito and now-retired BlackRock PM Robert Shearer wrote in a 2015 report. "If you think about it, these are generally high-quality businesses with ample free cash flow, and that's precisely what's needed to grow the dividend. So you have a very attractive combination of quality franchises, solid balance sheets and positive trends in cash flow and earnings."The Dividend Aristocrats are companies in Standard & Poor's 500-stock index that have raised their payouts every year for at least 25 consecutive years. They are a host of household names that offer size, longevity and familiarity, providing comfort amid market uncertainty.Here are the current 57 Dividend Aristocrats - including several new faces that were just added in January 2019. These have been among the best dividend stocks for income growth over the past few decades, and they're a great place to start if you're looking to add new dividend holdings to your long-term portfolios.

    5 Dow Jones Stocks Coming to Life

    U.S. equities are pushing higher on Tuesday as traders await the start of another two-day Federal Reserve policy meeting. A dovish outcome is expected, with the "dot plot" expected to come down to reflect only a single rate hike in 2019 and another single hike in 2020.The bulls are feeling confident, once again pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average up and over the 26,000 level for the fourth time since prices peaked back in October 2018. Will this rally in Dow Jones stocks have staying power?It looks that way, with global central banks doing all they can to paper over the volatility suffered late last year. With inflation at bay, they don't have much reason to play the tough cop act the market hates so much.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 10 Best Stocks to Buy for the Bull Market's Anniversary With that in mind, here are five Dow Jones stocks that have lagged the market's rise -- and will be critical in helping push the Dow definitively past the 26,000 threshold. Boeing (BA) Click to EnlargeBoeing (NYSE:BA) shares have stabilized after hitting major turbulence in connection to the two fatal crashes of 787 MAX aircraft because of what looks like a design flaw connected to an anti-stall system. Boeing, under competitive pressure, reportedly buried details of the system's operation to avoid airlines retraining pilots. Shares were recently downgraded from buy to hold by analysts at Argus. But the worst looks to be over for the company, which will have to pay to make it right before getting back to its massive list of backorders.The company will next report results on May 1 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $4.25 per share on revenues of $25 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 30, earnings of $5.48 beat estimates by 93 cents on a 14.4% rise in revenues. Caterpillar (CAT) Click to EnlargeCaterpillar (NYSE:CAT) shares are on the move, pushing off of uptrend channel support going back to late October. The bulls are shaking off a double downgrade day from late February when analysts at UBS cut all the way from buy to sell on worries about revenue and margin pressure in 2020. Instead, nascent hope of a manufacturing and construction turnaround are bolstering prices. * 5 of the Best Stocks to Buy Under $10 The company will next report results on April 29 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $2.86 per share on revenues of $13.5 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 28, earnings of $2.55 missed estimates by 44 cents on a 11.2% rise in revenues. DowDuPont (DWDP) Click to EnlargeDowDuPont (NYSE:DWDP) shares are coiling up within the confines of a consolidation range going back to October, rising off of its 50-day and 20-day moving averages in what looks like the beginning of an upside breakout. The company announced this week that a broker-dealer has been selected to implement a $3 billion share buyback following the separation of its Dow subsidiary from DowDuPont.The company will next report results on May 2 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 93 cents per share on revenues of $20 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 31, earnings of 88 cents per share beat estimates by a penny on a 0.2% rise in revenues. Goldman Sachs (GS) Click to EnlargeShares of Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) are emerging from a three-month consolidation range, pushing towards its 200-day moving average in what looks like a possible end to a downtrend that traces back to early 2018. Investors are getting excited about reports the company is looking to launch a new credit card product in collaboration with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) as well as general stabilization in the capital markets, which is resulting in a reopening of the IPO window with Lyft. * 7 Invincible Stocks Leading The Bull Market Higher The company will next report results on April 17 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $5.7 per share on revenues of $9.3 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 16, earnings of $6.04 beat estimates by $1.26 on a 0.5% drop in revenues. Home Depot (HD) Click to EnlargeWith the peak home-buying season about to arrive, hopes of a turnaround in home prices (which have been sagging nationally lately) are raising, and thus, home improvement demand is expected to increase. Home Depot (NYSE:HD) shares have been consolidating since October but look ready for another breakout attempt above its 200-day moving average. A couple of analyst downgrades in recent weeks, including from Telsey Advisory Group, hasn't dampened investors' spirits.The company will next report results on May 28 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $2.20 per share on revenues of $26.5 billion. When the company last reported on Feb. 26, earnings of $2.25 per share beat estimates by 9 cents on a 10.9% rise in revenues.As of this writing, William Roth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
