    Where Xcel Energy Stock Might Go from Here

    Xcel Energy versus Consolidated Edison in 2019 (Continued from Prior Part) ## Moving averages Xcel Energy (XEL) is trading at $48.5, which is almost 4% below its 50-day moving average and 2% above its 200-day moving average. The level close to $50.7 will likely act as a resistance, while $47.5 will likely act as a support for Xcel Energy stock in the short term. Xcel Energy’s RSI (relative strength index) was 49 on January 10. The RSI is a momentum oscillator that takes values between zero and 100. RSI values above 70 suggest that the stock is overbought, while values below 30 suggest that the stock is oversold. An RSI at either extreme suggests that the stock’s direction could reverse. Consolidated Edison (ED) stock is trading at an RSI of 48, which indicates that it isn’t in the overbought or oversold zone. Consolidated Edison is 4% and 3% lower than its 50-day and 200-day moving average levels, respectively. The discount to both of these levels indicates weakness in the stock. The levels close to $77.7 and $78.5 are expected to act as resistance for Consolidated Edison stock going forward. ## Short interest The short interest in Xcel Energy decreased 17% on December 30. On December 14, there were 19.5 million shorted shares in Xcel Energy. The total shorted shares decreased to 16.1 million on December 31. Recently, the short interest in Consolidated Edison fell 4%.

    101 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond

    Dependable dividend stocks that routinely grow their payouts are welcome in any environment. But they seem especially attractive nowadays. Stock market volatility is back with a vengeance. The Dow Jones Industrial Average went from powering ahead to an all-time high of 26,828 on Oct. 3 to losing 8% in the span of about three weeks. These kinds of rocky markets tend to give investors motion sickness. But they can add a dose of Dramamine to their portfolios - in the form of reliable dividend-growth stocks. "Dividend growers, which tend to be quality companies, have generally shown greater resilience in unsteady markets and could address concerns about dividend stocks in a rising-rate environment," write Tianyin Cheng, director of strategy and ESG Indices at S&P; Dow Jones Indices; and Vinit Srivastava, head of strategy and ESG indices at S&P; Dow Jones Indices. "This argument applies to not only to the U.S. large-cap space, but it also extends to small- and mid-cap segments and international markets." Dividend stocks - both at home and abroad - with long track records of rock-solid rising payments tend to generate superior returns over long periods of time and can help investors weather shorter periods of market turbulence. This is a look at the most reliable long-term dividend stocks in the world. Dubbed the "Dividend Aristocrats," they have raised dividends for at least five straight years (Canadian firms), 10 years (E.U.-based firms) or 25 years (U.S. companies). Such stocks provide reliable and rising income streams - and a sense of security that will help you sleep better at night.
