The Atlanta Falcons have traded Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots. The Falcons will receive a second-round pick in exchange for the wide receiver. The news was reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport Tuesday morning.
This past weekend Atlanta United advanced to the conference semifinals of the MLS Cup Playoffs while the Atlanta Falcons dropped their fifth-straight game of the season. Both teams are back at Mercedes-Benz Stadium this week as United faces Philadelphia Union on Thursday while the Falcons face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The average ticket price for the United-Union game is $81 with a get-in price of $67, according to secondary marketplace TickPick.
The calls for a coaching change are getting louder from Atlanta Falcons fans. Pressure is mounting after the Falcons dropped their fifth-straight game in a 37-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday. The defeat brings the Falcons to 1-6 on the season and puts head coach Dan Quinn’s future in further question.
[Editor's note: "8 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy for Consistent Income" was previously published in July 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]With so much uncertainty weighing on key economic metrics -- most notably the U.S.-China trade war -- the idea of buying dividend stocks is an attractive one. Primarily, as passive-income generating securities, dividend-bearers are likely to weather volatility better than stocks that don't offer payouts. Plus, any capital returns are bonuses on top of the yield.Source: Shutterstock However, dividend stocks typically have one glaring weakness, especially for those who depend on stocks for income: their payouts occur on a quarterly basis. That's not particularly helpful when our society revolves around monthly cost expenditures, such as mortgages, car payments, and utility bills. And that's one of the reasons why monthly dividend stocks are so attractive.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsUnder this arrangement, you're receiving income 12 times a year as opposed to the usual four times. Because money has a time component to it, monthly dividend stocks allow investors much more flexibility. Also, if you like to reinvest dividends into more shares of the target asset, a monthly schedule allows you to advantage technical dynamics, such as a pricing dip. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock That said, conservative investors should adopt the same precautions toward monthly dividend stocks as you would any income-generating investment. For instance, you should never jump aboard a company or fund merely because they pay out monthly. The key here is healthy cash flows and robust, stable sectors.At the same time, monthly dividend stocks offer speculators a reason to join in on the fun. With payouts every 30 days, sometimes risky, high-yielding names offer compelling opportunities. Of course, that depends on your personal tolerance to volatility.And with these cautionary notes out of the way, here are the eight best monthly dividend stocks to consider in 2019: LTC Properties (LTC)Source: Shutterstock When it comes to boring sectors as I mentioned above, I can't think of anything more sleep-inducing than senior care. At the same time, I can't think of anything more robust and relevant than the senior care market. That's why investors ought to take a long look at LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC) and LTC stock.As a viable name among monthly dividend stocks, LTC Properties utilizes a powerful tool as leverage: demographics. Baby Boomers are retiring in droves, which present serious challenges. But they also present opportunities. Increasingly, millennials are taking care of their aging family members, indirectly bolstering the case for LTC stock. That's because a senior may not have adequate funds, but a working millennial might.Furthermore, LTC stock has steadily trekked higher since the collapse of the 2000 tech bubble. Given the demographic tailwinds, I expect this longer-term trend to continue. Main Street Capital Corporation (MAIN)Source: Shutterstock Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) is what experts refer to as a business development company. In this case, Main Street provides debt and equity financing to small and mid-tier private organizations. With a broad range of services, they're able to help scale businesses as their output expands.And supporting the case for MAIN stock is the current entrepreneurial environment. With the advent of e-commerce technologies, and the digitalization of everything, there's never been a better time than now to start a business. Moreover, the efficiencies inherent in smaller and more nimble organizations allow them to disrupt larger entities. Again, this supports the capital gains narrative for MAIN stock. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Just as importantly, the underlying company has a track record for delivering the goods under pressure. For instance, Main Street first offered MAIN stock to the public in 2007. While incurring volatility during the financial crisis, shares fought back. Today, it pays out a healthy dividend monthly that yields nearly 6%. Realty Income (O)Source: Shutterstock Whenever discussions about monthly dividend stocks come about, it's almost inevitable that you'll hear the name Realty Income (NYSE:O). And that's for good reason. Although a boring name, strong and consistent cash flows back up O stock. Obviously, this is critical for a company paying out monthly; after all, the money for dividends has to come from somewhere!But O stock has two reasons why it's especially relevant at this juncture. First, the Federal Reserve is likely to lower interest rates despite robust domestic economic metrics. Global economies don't necessarily share the same optimism as the U.S. Furthermore, the Fed is determined to learn the lessons that led to the disastrous 2008 financial crisis. Thus, investors seeking substantive yields will probably gravitate toward investments like O stock.Second, many of the commercial properties that Realty Income owns feature retailers who have competitive or natural moats against e-commerce threats like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). For example, Home Depot (NYSE:HD) customers like to see and test out their prospective products. You simply don't get that convenience from online channels. And this dynamic should keep the rent money flowing into O stock, which bolsters the dividend payout. Shaw Communications (SJR)Source: Shutterstock Canadian cable company Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) is another name that frequently pops up among recommended monthly dividend stocks. It's not hard to see why. Currently, SJR stock has a dividend yield of 4.5%. Shares have also gained over 10% since January's opening price.More importantly, SJR stock should prove to be incredibly relevant in the years ahead. While cable is a dying industry due to the streaming revolution, Shaw levers a wireless subsidiary called Freedom Mobile Inc. And in April of this year, Freedom substantially expanded its wireless footprint in the Canadian market. This move improves Freedom's LTE service and lays the groundwork for the upcoming 5G rollout. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Finally, Shaw is a name that delivers a consistent revenue and earnings stream. As a result, it generally features reliable free cash flow -- which is key for stocks that pay out monthly. And while cord cutting hurts SJR stock in the nearer-term, I believe its spectrum coverage will outweigh these concerns. Pembina Pipeline (PBA)In years past, the oil market used to be a no-brainer: we consume energy and therefore we need energy. However, rising global supplies have depressed prices, making this sector a tough call. But infrastructural plays like Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) typically offer stability.No matter what happens in the underlying market, transportation of energy-related commodities is vital. In recent years, this dynamic supported the bullish case for PBA stock.Still, some risks cloud the narrative for PBA stock. First, shares have done well this year, moving up 21% year-to-date. But the equity has demonstrated some notable volatility in recent sessions. Thus, prospective buyers may want to wait a little before pulling the trigger.Further, Pembina doesn't have the greatest balance sheet. With a total debt to total equity ratio of 63, I wouldn't go all in on PBA stock. That said, energy remains a viable long-term play due to the uncertainties of renewable alternatives. Therefore, Pembina is among the riskier monthly dividend stocks that nonetheless deserves a careful look. Colony Credit Real Estate (CLNC)For those who are interested in higher stakes -- and of course, higher yields -- you should check out Colony Credit Real Estate (NYSE:CLNC). CLNC stock provides shareholders exposure to the world of commercial real estate credit REITs, or real estate investment trusts. Essentially, the company finances and manages commercial real estate debt.Now, I must give you some cautionary notes for CLNC stock. First, shares have not enjoyed the greatest time since its introduction in early 2018. A massive collapse in November of last year, along with the rest of the markets, has not inspired confidence.Also, as a commercial debt investor, Colony Credit faces turbulence from a possible downturn in the economy. With most folks talking about at least a correction coming up, CLNC stock is only for the risk tolerant. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock However, shares have stabilized this year and has recently inched forward. Plus, with a yield of 12%, CLNC is one of the monthly dividend stocks that will consistently draw eyeballs. Armour Residential REIT (ARR)If you want another high-stakes REIT among monthly dividend stocks, but with a residential angle, consider Armour Residental REIT (NYSE:ARR). ARR stock gives you exposure to mortgage-backed securities which are backed by a federal entity, such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.Of course, whenever anyone hears the term mortgage-backed securities, the last housing crisis comes immediately to mind. Certainly, no investment is foolproof and that should give you pause before diving into ARR stock.On the flipside, both the government and the mortgage industry have taken the lessons of the last decade to heart. Today, it's very difficult to quality for a mortgage unless you've got your financial house in order. Additionally, homeowners themselves have learned not to overextend themselves. Thus, this environment helps bring some confidence toward ARR stock.Lastly, Armour Residential has a history of consistently rich monthly payouts going back to 2015. But I wouldn't get too comfortable as the payouts have declined in value over this time. Also, ARR stock is down nearly 18% YTD. All that said, if you're willing to assume the risk, Armour is an interesting play due to the current economic resiliency. Mesa Royalty Trust (MTR)Source: Shutterstock A far riskier counterpart to Pembina Pipeline, Mesa Royalty Trust (NYSE:MTR) is truly an investment only for the hardened speculator. From the get-go, MTR stock screams caution.Let's start with the obvious. Mesa Royalty distinguishes itself from the other monthly dividend stocks on this list because the company doesn't own anything. Instead, it has an interest in oil and natural gas projects dispersed throughout the U.S. Basically, the dividend from MTR stock represents a share of the spoils from the facilities' output.This leads to my next concern about MTR stock: volatility. I'm not just talking about the share price, which historically is terrible. The payout fluctuates like mad. Needless to say, Mesa Royalty will not belong on a list of stable dividend stocks anytime soon. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Still, the company offers the prospect of a big payday that could arrive at any month. For instance, earlier in March, Mesa paid out nearly 19 cents for each share of MTR stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

After a strong earnings-driven rally yesterday, U.S. equity benchmarks gave back some of those gains Wednesday following some slack retail sales data.Source: Venturelli Luca / Shutterstock.com Retail sales dipped 0.30% in September, disappointing analysts that had been forecasting a 0.30% increase. In better news, the Commerce Department revised the August figure to a gain of 0.60%, but as stocks' performance today indicates, market participants focused more on the September number, a logical approach considering the holiday shopping season is essentially upon us.I've been reluctant to join the calls regarding a recession, but I've also been clear that the consumer is integral when it comes to holding things together for the U.S. economy. Another bit of silver lining is that the September retail sales figure was the first decline in seven months and that the decline was largely attributable to spending drops at motor vehicle supply stores.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAmong Dow components, looming earnings reports from the likes of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Home Depot (NYSE:HD), McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) and Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) should bring the state of the consumer into clearer view.For today, the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.30% while the S&P 500 declined 0.20%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated by 0.08% with just 12 of its 30 components higher in late trading.Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) was the only Dow stock to gain more than 1% today on what looked liked some follow through on Tuesday's earnings report as well as some favorable reaction to some of the various opioid-related verdicts the company is contending with. Other Bright SpotsIn late trading, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), the largest U.S. bank by assets, was clinging to a modest gain. This might be another example of follow through on yesterday's earnings report as well as a sympathy move on the back of Bank of America's (NYSE:BAC) strong report out earlier today. * 10 Buy-and-Hold Stocks to Own Forever "Given the fact that multiple rate cuts have already occurred, with the possibility for more, this was not surprising," said Morningstar in a note on JPM out yesterday. "Management also nailed down its expense guidance a bit more, coming in at roughly $65.5 billion, whereas before the guidance was simply for less than $66 billion. After incorporating these and other changes, we are increasing our fair value estimate to $114 per share from $110." Finally Some Good NewsShares of 3M Co. (NYSE:MMM) traded lower today, extending the stock's run as one of this year's worst-performing Dow names, but the stock is up more than 8% over the past week and some analysts are waxing bullish on the industrial conglomerate."Even after the 4% bounce on Oct. 11, we still believe the stock trades at a discount to intrinsic value in a diversified industrial space with few bargains," said Morningstar in a recent note on 3M. "As a GDP-plus business, 3M doesn't offer much in the way of top-line growth. Even so, we like the name with speculation of an upcoming recession because 3M is a defensive stock." Oil WoesWhile there was some talk that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) may extend recent supply cuts, Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) and Chevron (NYSE:CVX) were the worst performers in the Dow Jones today.Big oil companies report third-quarter earnings later this month, but some analysts are already warning that estimates could be missed and that could explain some of the malaise in the group today. This year, energy is the worst-performing group in the S&P 500. * 7 Big Bank Stocks on the Move Bottom Line on the Dow Jones TodayReminder that International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) reports today after the bell and that tomorrow is light on the Dow earnings front with none of the index's members report. American Express (NYSE:AXP) and Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) resume Dow earnings season on Friday before the bell.As for the consumer, there are some good data points to consider."Perhaps the biggest difference versus last cycle: consumers are less indebted. On the eve of the financial crisis consumers were contending with record levels of debt," according to BlackRock. "At its peak in 2007, household debt was more than 130% of disposable income. Today household debt is less than 100% of income. Not only are debt levels lower, but thanks to historically low yields the cost of servicing the debt is near an historic low."As of this writing, Todd Shriber did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The Falcons average ticket price entering the season was $175, but now has dropped to $120 for the team’s six remaining home games, according to New-York based ticket seller SeatGeek. Demand for Falcons tickets has decreased for a few reasons, but most notably because of the team’s performance thus far following high preseason expectations.
