    15 Dividend Kings for Decades of Dividend Growth

    You might start to hear more about the "Dividend Kings" over the next few months. Small wonder: Stocks that have boasted uninterrupted dividend growth for a half-century or more might be an ideal place to hide out amid increased economic uncertainty.Sluggish global growth, rising recession risks and a stock market that hasn't gone anywhere over the past 52 weeks have some market strategists banging the drum for quality stocks. "A focus on quality stocks can allow investors to stay in the market to benefit from potential upturns, but with a measure of prudence built in to buffer downturns," says Tony DeSpirito, head of BlackRock's U.S. Income and Value team. And nothing says quality more than stocks that haven't missed a dividend hike in decades. "When a company is reliably able to boost its dividend for years or even decades, this may suggest it has a certain amount of financial strength and discipline," says Tianyin Cheng, director of Strategy and Volatility Indices at S&P; Dow Jones Indices.Investors can find such dividend machines within the ranks of the Dividend Kings. You've surely heard of the Dividend Aristocrats -- companies in Standard & Poor's 500-stock index that have raised their payouts every year for a minimum of 25 consecutive years. The Dividend Kings are Aristocrats that have done it for at least 50. Here, then, are the current 15 Dividend Kings. These have been among the best of the best dividend stocks for income growth since at least the late 1960s. Any company with that kind of track record clearly makes its dividend a top priority -- and one that investors can count on through thick and thin.

    3 Stocks with Strong Returns in Volatile Times

    Are you ready for a roller coaster ride in the markets? Goldman Sachs is putting investors on notice that our current break from August’s high volatility is just a short breather – October is likely to be just as unpredictable. In fact, the firm points out that since 1928, October’s stock market volatility has averaged 25% higher. John Marshall, equity derivatives strategist for the firm, says, “We believe high October volatility is more than just a coincidence. We believe it is a critical period for many investors and companies that manage performance to calendar year-end.”The markets may be unpredictable, but you can still find stocks showing a solid record of strong returns. We’ve searched TipRanks’ database and found three stocks that are bringing in the long-term returns and dividends you need to insulate your portfolio in today’s uncertain climate. Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.Business mergers can sometimes bring the best together, Stanley Black & Decker (SWK – Get Report) is the modern incarnation of two storied names in power tools: Stanley, and Black & Decker. They merged in 2010 in a move that brought some of the most respected brands in the industry under one roof.The power tool company has had a good run in recent years. SWK’s 5-year gain is 77%, and the company is up 18% year-to-date. Shares have risen from $117 on the last day of 2018 to today’s opening price of $140. And as an added attraction for income investors, SWK pays out a 1.96% dividend, in line with the S&P’s average yield of 2.1%. The dividend pays out $2.76 per share annually.SWK’s gains, and its hefty upside potential, have attracted plenty of love from top analysts recently. Last week, KeyBanc’s Kenneth Zener upgraded his stand on this stock from neutral to buy, saying, “We see upside (tool share gains and wider portfolio outgrow market, favorable price/cost raise margins) … in line with market returns this year.” His price target of $160 suggests an upside of 13% for the stock.Michael Wood, writing from Nomura, takes an even more optimistic stance on SWK. He kept his buy rating, and raised his price target by 10%, to $180. His new target indicates his confidence in a 27% growth potential.Stanley Black & Decker keeps a Moderate Buy from the analyst consensus. This is derived from 5 buys and 2 holds given the stock in the past three months. As noted, shares are selling for $140. The $168 average price target suggests a 19% upside potential in the coming year. Intuit, Inc.No one likes the tax man, and we like having to report and file taxes even less. But we do have to file, every year, and a whole industry of accountants and DIY software has grown up around the requirement. Intuit (INTU – Get Report) is the maker of TurboTax, the popular home-use tax filing software, which has become the industry standard.The success of TurboTax has pushed Intuit to ever-higher revenues. The company reported $1.99 billion in 2005, which rose to $3.40 billion in 2010, $4.19 billion in 2015, and $5.96 billion in 2018. Shares in INTU have gained also steadily gained; INTU is up an eye-catching 236% in the last five years, and has an impressive 36% year-to-date gain. For income investors, the share appreciation is the main attraction here, but the Intuit does pay out a reliable dividend. The yield is modest, at 0.79%, but the trading price high enough to put the payout at $2.12 per share annually.The analysts are impressed by Intuit’s performance. 5-star analyst Brad Zelnick, of Credit Suisse, recently boosted his price target by 13%, to $300, and said, “The company reported better than expected Q4 results. We remain constructive on QuickBooks and TurboTax Live opportunities.” His price target suggests an upside potential of 11%.Zelnick is not the only analyst raising the price target on INTU. Jefferies’ Brent Thill boosted his target 7%, to $320, indicating an 18% upside, and Argus’ Jim Kelleher, ranked 60 out of 5,500 analysts covered by TipRanks, increased his price target from $275 to $327. Kelleher’s new price target implies an upside of 20% to Intuit’s share price.The analyst consensus on INTU is a Moderate Buy, with 7 buys and 4 holds assigned in the past three months. Shares currently trade for $269, and the average price target of $296 indicates an upside potential of 10%. Lowe’s Companies, Inc.The second largest player in the home improvement superstore sector, Lowe’s (LOW – Get Report) is making a credible challenge to Home Depot’s (HD – Get Report) dominance in that space. Lowe’s is benefitting from a new CEO, Marvin Ellison, with a hands-on style and turnaround plan, and LOW shares are up 19% year-to-date. The gain is seen as a show of confidence in Ellison’s ability to streamline retail chain and improve profitability.Long-term gains for LOW are also strong – shares have appreciated 129% since the end of 2014\. A robust 12% gain in the last three months shows that the stock continues to show steady momentum. The 1.99% dividend pays $2.20 per share, or 55 cents quarterly, giving investors a reliable passive income.Seth Basham, 4-star analyst with Wedbush, sees Ellison’s turnaround program as successful, and writes, “Lowe’s, he notes, has reversed its longstanding pattern of trailing Home Depot’s comparable sales in the past two quarters, thanks to better inventory, more target promotions, and company initiatives to improve productivity... increased labor efficiency could allow the company to keep operating expenses flat over the next three years, while still expanding margins.” Basham’s $135 price target on LOW indicates a potential for a 22% upside.Writing from RBC Capital, 5-star analyst Scot Ciccarelli agrees, writing, “Management continues to make the necessary improvements to generate sales activity in Lowe's Pro business, which is key to its turnaround efforts. Based on the stable home improvement environment and the company's margin expansion potential, we are positive on Lowe's shares.” Ciccarelli’s $129 price target suggests a 17% upside to the stock.LOW shares hold a Strong Buy from the analyst consensus, with 13 analysts rating the stock a buy as compared to 4 holds. The average price target of $122 indicates a 10% upside potential from the $110 trading price.Visit TipRanks’ Analysts’ Top Stocks page, and see which stocks are getting noticed by the Street’s best analysts.

    Were Those Earnings Really That Good?

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Good news comes with baggage for industrial companies this earnings season. United Technologies Corp., Stanley Black & Decker Inc. and Sherwin-Williams Co. all reported better-than-expected second-quarter earnings per share on Tuesday, but each company also gave investors new data points to worry about.For United Technologies, it was the fact that its aerospace businesses seem to be the only thing driving its improved outlook for sales and earnings in 2019. New equipment orders dropped 12% at Carrier in the period and 6% at the Otis elevator division, echoing reports of damped enthusiasm from industrial distributor Fastenal Co. and indications of an overall stagnation in new U.S. factory orders in June from the Institute for Supply Management. Stanley and Sherwin-Williams both left their full-year adjusted profit guidance unchanged despite notable beats in the second quarter, suggesting a cautious outlook on the rest of the year. Indeed, Stanley modestly reduced its expectation for volume growth amid a weaker outlook for industrial and emerging markets. Sherwin-Williams now expects overall revenue to increase only as much as 4% in 2019, down from an April projection of as much as 7%. Both companies think they can make up ground via price increases, but such sales weakness is troubling because Stanley and Sherwin-Williams can also be good proxies for the housing market and consumer demand.Despite the mixed results, stocks of all three companies rose Tuesday. Sherwin-Williams hit a new high and was on track for its biggest gain since 2009, while Stanley saw its biggest intraday gain since December. This is partly a reflection of lowered expectations. Industrial companies within the S&P 500 command a price-earnings ratio of about 17.5, a 10% discount to the broader benchmark’s  valuation of 19.5 times profit. The average discount over the past five years is closer to 4%. Stanley had been down nearly 2% in the year leading up to Tuesday’s earnings report, owing in part to margin pressure it flagged earlier in the year. United Technologies has missed out on a nearly 4% gain in the S&P 500 after announcing a merger with Raytheon Co. that’s roused pushback from activist investors Bill Ackman and Dan Loeb.Generally speaking, though, investors appear to be choosing to prioritize the good headlines over the bad. Pentair Plc rose as much as 5.1% on Tuesday, despite relying mostly on tax benefits to beat analysts' second-quarter earnings estimates and cutting its organic growth guidance for the year. The International Monetary Fund further reduced its global growth outlook on Tuesday, saying a projected pickup from 2019’s pace in 2020 is “precarious,” with the principal risk factors being the U.S.’s various trade battles and Brexit. But for now, industrial companies are drawing on every means they have to keep the boom going, whether that’s relying on the still-robust aerospace market, pushing through price increases and cost cuts, or simply wagering a Federal Reserve interest-rate cut will boost investment.The thing about price increases is they get much trickier to pass along if demand starts to wobble. Stanley is also feeling the pain from the U.S.-China trade war. It now expects a $390 million hit to 2019 earnings from tariffs, currency swings and rising commodity prices, up from $340 million previously. Come 2020, United Technologies’ Carrier and Otis units will be spun off as independent companies, freeing the company from any future underperformance. Currency swings wiped out the modest organic revenue gain at Carrier in the second quarter, leaving it with a 1% decline in overall sales for the first six months of the year, and United Technologies lowered its full-year sales and profit outlook for the division. The flip side of United Technologies’ breakup is that it will be more exposed to an eventual downturn in aerospace markets without those two divisions, something it hopes to offset by expanding its defense business through the Raytheon deal.This willingness to look past trouble spots will be put to the test later this week when Caterpillar Inc. and 3M Co. report.(Updates stock activity in the third and fourth paragraphs.)To contact the author of this story: Brooke Sutherland at bsutherland7@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Beth Williams at bewilliams@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brooke Sutherland is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering deals and industrial companies.
