AT&T (NYSE:T) is currently yielding 6.7%. Dividend investors love AT&T stock and its juicy payout despite the fact it's highly likely the telecom/media company will have to cut its dividend in the future to help pay down its massive debt.Source: Shutterstock Debt is a big reason that I'm not a fan of AT&T and probably never will be. Chasing yield is a mug's game. It's the total return that counts, not dividend yield. And while the AT&T stock price is up approximately $2.77 a share, 51 cents of that return is due to its quarterly dividend. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBy the end of the year, the dividend could account for almost 100% of its total return. For my money, I want the dividend to account for no more than 50% of a stock's total return, preferably even lower around 25%. * 6 Trade War Stocks With a Lot of Risk Here are two stocks with a market cap higher than $2 billion trading within $2 of AT&T that will meet my criterion above and outperform AT&T stock on a total return basis over the next 1, 3, and 5-year periods. Both of these stocks should put AT&T on the bench. Permanently. Wolverine World WideMichigan-based Wolverine World Wide (NYSE:WWW) is probably best known for its Hush Puppies and Merrell brands. However, the footwear manufacturer has a total of 12 brands in its portfolio including Keds, Sperry, and Saucony. Wolverine released its first-quarter results May 10 and investors didn't like them sending its stock down by more than 5% on the news. With the losses after its Q1 2019 report, WWW stock is now down about 6.7% year to date. Its downward trend in 2019 ends three years of consecutive annual gains. Like Warren Buffett, I believe that it's good news when a stock is dropping in price because it allows you to buy while it's on sale. Analysts see good things ahead for Wolverine. "Despite back-end weighted guidance, we are confident Wolverine will achieve top- and bottom-line FY19 objectives," wrote Susquehanna Financial Group analysts. "Headwinds faced in the first half should subside in the second half."Yielding 1.4%, capital appreciation is the key to shareholder happiness. Delivering an annualized total return of 13.2% over the past decade, I see WWW outperforming AT&T stock in the long run. Park Hotels & ResortsPark Hotels & Resorts (NYSE:PK) was spun-off from Hilton Hotels (NYSE:HLT) in January 2017. It is a real estate investment trust that owns 52 premium branded hotels and resorts in the U.S. On May 6, in addition to releasing its Q1 2019 results, the company announced that it would buy Chesapeake Lodging Trust (NYSE:CHSP) for $2.7 billion. The strategic investment gives Park Hotels a total of 66 properties in 17 states and Washington D.C. and an enterprise value of $12.0 billion. As a result of the purchase, the company's revenue per available room (RevPAR) increases by 3.4% to $182. It also expands the number of hotel brands in the portfolio beyond Hilton, DoubleTree, and Waldorf Astoria, to include Marriott (NYSE:MAR), Hyatt (NYSE:H), and other third-party operators. Since Park Hotels was spun-off from Hilton, it's delivered a 46% total return to shareholders through the company's merger announcement with Chesapeake. I expect that its latest acquisition will provide significant shareholder returns in the years to come. Currently yielding 6.0%, I believe it's a much better and safer dividend play than AT&T stock. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

After Marriott International made a big splash Tuesday with the news that it would launch a home-sharing product in 100 markets, hospitality industry watchers were eager to hear whether any of its competitors were following suit. “The longer answer is, which is consistent with my prior commentary, is we fundamentally think that home-sharing is a different business.” It’s an answer that sounds a lot like the one Marriott (NASDAQ: MAR) CEO Arne Sorenson was giving a couple of years ago, though clearly his thought process evolved. But Nassetta is not yet convinced, in part because Hilton has polled its customers, including the most loyal ones in the Hilton Honors program, about the possibility of launching home-sharing, Nassetta added. “Our customers tell us they don't need this from us.
Stephen Schwarzman, with a net worth of $14.3 billion, could buy one for all 329 million people in the U.S. today -- and then do so again tomorrow for 222 million of them. The wealth on display this week at the annual Davos-style conference organized by Michael Milken, once of junk-bond fame, is capturing a moment in our age of growing inequality. For the first time in Milken Institute Global Conference’s two-decade-plus history, Schwarzman and the other billionaires and mere multimillionaires here find themselves confronting uncomfortable questions about the source of their wealth: modern American capitalism itself.
