    7 “Boring” Stocks With Exciting Prospects

    When I say "boring" stocks, that might seem like I'm talking about stocks that aren't worth your attention.Quite the opposite. I'm talking about bulletproof stocks for a tricky market.The market certainly has been on a roller coaster ride recently. We've had a couple yield curve inversions, the Dow Industrials lost 800 points in one day, and the trade war with China continues unabated.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsEurope is headed into recession, negative interest rates reign, and Brexit looks like it's going to be messy.Wouldn't it be nice in all this turmoil to have some stocks that will chug right along, growing their stock price and delivering solid dividend yields, most of which outpace inflation?That's what I call boring stocks. They aren't unicorns or in sexy, headline-grabbing industries. But they do make money slowly and steadily. And they are all investor-friendly. It's a phenomenon I often refer to as the Money Magnets. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip To get you started, these seven boring stocks with exciting prospects below are the perfect antidote to the prevailing winds tossing this market around.Source: HereStanding via Flickr (Modified)American States Water (NYSE:AWR) is an interesting utility because it reaches across a couple lines of business. It's a company that manages water resources for over 80 communities in California, particularly around Los Angeles.But it also has divisions that provide electricity and contracted services to over a million customers in nine states.Water is becoming an increasingly important resource. And water utilities are becoming key assets to manage these resources. As we have seen in Michigan and Georgia, as well as many other states, old infrastructure is endangering the lives of citizens.In agricultural states like California, wise management of resources for business and the citizenry is becoming ever more complex.AWR stock has had a run in the past year, up 46% in the past 12 months and 33% year to date. Given that move, its dividend has diminished, but it still delivers at almost 1.4%, which may not beat current CD rates, but they don't offer the growth potential of AWR stock, either.Source: Jakeblancaster via Flickr (Modified)York Water (NYSE:YORW) is the oldest investor-owned utility in the country. It started in 1816, when a group of local businessmen in York County, Pennsylvania got together and issued shares in a company that could mange water resources for the growing city of York.As the city grew, it needed a reliable source of water for the community, as well as water at the ready for any structure fires. Bucket brigades weren't going to be able to serve the growing city.In recent years, YORW has gone into the wastewater business as well. This is just managing the flow on a different set of pipes and adds value to the overall business.But YORW has stuck to its knitting. It has grown with the needs of the two counties it serves, but it isn't looking to take on risky expansion. Its sub-$500 million market cap means you're getting a small, focused utility with great relations with the utility regulators and a well-established infrastructure. * 10 Marijuana Stocks That Could See 100% Gains, If Not More The stock is up 25% in the past 12 months, 17% year to date and delivers a trusty 1.9% dividend to boot. And I've got more where that came from.Source: Shutterstock ONE Gas (NYSE:OGS) is a natural gas utility that operates in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. It provides gas for commercial and residential customers.The nice thing about this company is that it's focused. There are plenty of big utilities that have natural gas as well as renewables along with their electric generation and distribution mix.OGS just does natural gas. And that's a good thing, especially if you already have a bigger utility or two in your portfolio. Its two million customers make it one of the largest natural gas utilities in the U.S.Natural gas is one of the great energy resources in the U.S. While coal is still around, much of its production is getting shipped overseas because it's not as efficient as natural gas.Fracking operations in Texas and Oklahoma as well as many other places in the U.S. have unearthed significant natural gas assets. This spells growth for years to come.Most of OGS stock's gains came in 2019 - it has return 16% year to date and 14% in the past year. It delivers a solid 2.2% dividend yield that's outpacing inflation.Source: Shutterstock Chesapeake Utilities (NYSE:CPK) can recall its roots back in 1859 as the Dover Gas Light Company. Remember, gas lights were all the rage in the late 19th century and early 20th century until reliable electricity would supplant them.CPK is from Delaware, the home of the powerful DuPont family, which means it had not only a consumer base but also a significant industrial base.CPK operates on the Delmarva peninsula, some of the most popular beach traffic on the East Coast, as well as in Florida, as Florida Public Utilities.Its operation has also expanded beyond natural gas and now encompasses propane, electricity, and even steam. It also has regulated and unregulated business divisions.The regulated business helps keep business steady and reliable and the unregulated side takes advantage of opportunities that pop up in the market to make bigger gains. * 10 Marijuana Stocks to Ride High on the Farm Bill With a market cap of $1.5 billion, it's not a big company, but it is rock-solid. It's up 19% year to date and delivers a 1.7% dividend. Nothing fancy, just a solid utility with a steady customer base in growing areas. It's a situation that's producing some of my favorite high-growth investments at Growth Investor.Source: Shutterstock NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) is the largest utility holding company by market cap.That's right, we're going to talk about a big-cap utility that operates in one of the fastest-growing states in the U.S. and has a very strong market position in one of the hottest growth sectors in the utilities sector - renewable energy.This hardly sounds like a boring stock, right?Well, just remember all this is in the utility sector, so it's all relative. But NEE stock is getting a lot of attention, even from people who don't usually consider utilities.It has two divisions: regulated and unregulated. Its regulated division is FPL, formerly known as Florida Power and Light. FPL delivers electricity to about 10 million customers across nearly half of Florida (mostly the southern and western half) and is the third-largest utility in the U.S.Its unregulated division is the largest producer of wind and solar in the world. Other utilities looking for carbon futures make this a huge growth opportunity for NEE.NEE stock is up 29% in the past 12 months and delivers a near 2.3% dividend. And none of this is subject to trade wars, GDP or a strong dollar. In fact, I've declared it one of my Top 5 Stocks for Growth Investor.Source: Shutterstock Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) has 7.7 million customers across six states: Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana. It is a diversified monster that provides electricity generation and distribution as well as natural gas distribution services.The company started in 1904 when it took over the Catawba Hydro Station in South Carolina to help industrialize the south. The goal was to power the Victoria Cotton Mills and look for a way to diversify the economy of the agrarian south.Nowadays, DUK has continued to lead, but now is known for being one of the most proactive renewable energy utilities in the nation. This has been an effort of the company long before it was cool to look at renewables as a way to generate power for most big utilities.DUK has nine subsidiaries that operate across its territories, including an array of unregulated operations that help power the regulated side of the business as well as trade with other utilities and power customers. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall While DUK stock hasn't been on fire - up 5% year to date and 12% in the past year - its dividend is generous (4.1%) and about as reliable as they come. That means you'll get paid inflation beating returns come what may with the rest of the market.Source: Shutterstock TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP) is certainly a 21st century energy company. Its single mandate is to operate, own, and acquire wind and solar assets in North America and Europe.Right now, that means nearly 30 U.S. states and territories as well as Canada, Chile, Spain, Portugal, Uruguay and the UK.It has more than 3,700 megawatts of capacity, that's split 64/36 wind and solar. The revenue split on its generation platforms is 51% solar, 49% wind.Bear in mind, this is all unregulated. TERP isn't a utility in the traditional sense since it doesn't have a regulated business. It sells it power to utilities and other power producers that want to add renewables to their energy mix.It also means that utilities don't have to buy or expand power generation operations, but they can simply power from TERP until the demand becomes significant enough to justify the larger expansion expense.Buying renewable energy also helps manage utilities' carbon credits. While the federal government has loosened its regulatory grip on clean energy, many states and other countries haven't.The company is just five years old, so it's still a baby in this sector, but it's growing fast. TERP stock is up 55% year to date as low interest rates mean it can continue to expand its operations and lower its operating costs. Its 4.8% dividend is also attractive, but bear in mind that it's not as secure as a utility like Duke or Dominion Energy (NYSE:D). Why High-Dividend Stocks Are So Firm Right NowThe "smart money" on Wall Street knows that dividends are crucial for their performance stats: The income ultimately smooths out a portfolio's returns overall.Speaking of "juicing" returns…There's another trick Wall Street money managers have up their sleeves. It's called "window dressing." When we approach the end of a quarter, big money will often buy top-performing stocks to spruce up their returns when they report the performance of their current portfolio.The influx of cash gives those stocks even BETTER returns. That's what we're about to see as the third quarter closes at month-end.And we can go along for the ride - as long as we get positioned by, say, September 16.You won't want to let the clock run out on this. After September 16, the next buying window won't really open until next earnings season.Click here for all 3 steps you should take right now and learn more about this phenomenon.Louis Navellier had an unconventional start, as a grad student who accidentally built a market-beating stock system -- with returns rivaling even Warren Buffett. In his latest feat, Louis discovered the "Master Key" to profiting from the biggest tech revolution of this (or any) generation.

    7 Great Small-Cap Stocks to Buy

    The one thing about small-cap stocks is that they thrive in rebound conditions.While there are some economic storm clouds over significant nations like Germany and China, the United States continues to chug along. The trade war with China is the only thing holding the U.S. back from getting stocks in rally mode again. And the concern over the inverted yield curve is a bit more complicated than it used to be. As other major nations sink into low- to no-growth mode and negative interest rates, the U.S. has become the best option for foreign money, especially the bond market.The U.S. dollar remains very strong. Investors are piling into short-term bonds for a safe place to park cash until there are better opportunities. The Brexit chaos is hurting the euro and the British pound. The trade war is hurting China's yuan.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On U.S. rates are low and getting lower, but at least they're not negative. And being the world's reserve currency doesn't hurt right now.The seven small-cap stocks to buy below are perfect choices for our current market conditions. They're Portfolio Grader A-listers, and when the clouds clear, they'll be great long-term choices as well. Small-Cap Stock to Buy: North American Construction Group (NOA)Source: Red ivory / Shutterstock.com The North American Construction Group (NYSE:NOA) is a Canadian firm that has been around since 1953. It specializes in mining and heavy construction services, primarily in western Canada, where the country's oil and gas and coal are located. Fundamentally, this is an energy play without direct exposure to energy prices.NOA stock's market cap is around $291 million and it delivers a roughly 1% dividend. The stock is still relatively cheap, even after it 30% year-to-date run. Low rates mean opportunity to develop new properties and upgrade old ones and the stock's 60% growth in the past 12 months is testament to its strength and influence in this sector.Plus, as a Canadian firm, it's protected from the worst of the global markets since much of its business is focused on domestic production and production for U.S. markets. Napco Security Technologies (NSSC)Source: Nuroon Jampaklai / Shutterstock.com Napco Security Technologies (NASDAQ:NSSC) makes security products, both digital and physical. It produces everything from fire alarm systems to access control systems. This means both providing access to physical properties as well as monitoring building security, and providing both digital and analog security and safety solutions for homes and businesses.While Napco started on the analog side of security and safety systems, it has pivoted into the digital arena and has also made ground in the consumer market as well. With its years of experience addressing the needs of the commercial community, a consumer-facing move has been well received. * 8 Dividend Aristocrat Stocks to Buy Now No Matter What NSSC stock is up 97% year-to-date and 110% in the past 12 months. And even with a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 51, it's still a solid buy. What's more, with a $586 million market cap, the company is well positioned for national expansion. PaySign (PAYS)Source: Teerasak Ladnongkhun / Shutterstock.com PaySign (NASDAQ:PAYS) looks like the prototypical small-cap stock. With a market cap just shy of $675 million, the stock is up over 340% year-to-date and almost 390% in the past year. And its forward P/E is around 40.It hit both your fear and greed buttons simultaneously.But the fact is, PAYS stock is having a momentum moment. It's just the right stock for just the right time. Basically, it issues prepaid cards for corporate, consumer and government applications. Instead of cutting checks and putting them in the mail, companies now have services like PAYS stick the money on a card and mail it.Companies are using it to pay employees, since it's easier than messing with checks for part-time workers or consultants. State, local and federal governments are using it to refund taxpayers. Consumers use PaySign cards for mobile telephones.The fact is, prepaid cards are a significant aspect of the financial technology revolution. And PAYS is one of the leaders. Rent-A-Center (RCII)Source: dennizn / Shutterstock.com Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ:RCII) is likely a name familiar to you from television commercials or from physical locations you drive past on your way to work. Started in 1986, this franchise operation has stores from Canada to Mexico and specializes in renting furniture, appliances, electronics, computers and even smartphones on a rent-to-own basis.While there's usually premiums on the items, it's direct financing, so the product is yours at the end of the term. This is especially popular with consumers that have trouble getting credit or have to deal with credit terms that are too expensive.Nowadays, RCII is also attracting Gen-Xers and millennials that aren't so possession hungry and have student loan debt that hurts their credit scores -- this younger group is also more mobile and doesn't want to haul furniture from place to place. * 7 Safe Dividend Stocks for Investors to Buy Right Now RCII stock is up over 70% year-to-date, 77% in the past year, yet it still has a P/E of 10. What's more, it recently announced that it will begin paying a small dividend. The York Water Company (YORW)Source: nostal6ie / Shutterstock.com The York Water Company (NASDAQ:YORW) was founded in 1816 and is the oldest investor-owned utility in the U.S. Back then, the greatest fear many people had was fire. As York, Pennsylvania grew, bucket brigades were no longer sufficient to offer protection. A public water source was necessary to manage the needs of the town as well as to protect it.Now, The York Water Company services customers in 48 municipalities within Pennsylvania's York and Adams counties. It also recently began to manage wastewater and wastewater treatment.This may not be the sexiest industry, but it's one of the most crucial to the fundamental operations of cities and counties. There's a finite amount of potable water available on the planet and many times those resources face competition from industries and everyday citizens. In this area of Pennsylvania, farming is another water-dependent resource.While YORW may not be a high-growth company, it is certainly a well-established one. That also makes it a potential takeover target for larger national water companies. Then again, it's doing fine on its own, up 18% year-to-date and over 24% in the past year. It also delivers a solid 1.8% dividend. Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (GLDD)Source: Istvan Balogh / Shutterstock.com Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (NASDAQ:GLDD) has been around since 1890. That was when Benjamin Harrison was president. And the year the first American football game was played.Basically, GLDD started to build Chicago's Harbor Lock system to separate Lake Michigan from the Chicago River and to provide navigable waterways and shoreline protection. It's the largest marine dredging company in the U.S. and has a number of overseas operations as well. * 10 Cyclical Stocks to Buy (or Sell) Now While this may seem an antiquated kind of niche market, there are two words to remember -- "climate change." One of its biggest divisions now is coastal protection from storms and rising sea levels. From Atlantic City to Palm Beach, GLDD is the go-to company for major coastal protection projects. And this business is only going to grow in coming years.Up 53% year-to-date and almost 87% in the past year, GLDD stock is up for the challenges the future will bring. iStar (STAR)Source: ymgerman / Shutterstock.com iStar (NYSE:STAR) is a real estate investment trust that operates in a unique niche. It specializes in ground leases. A ground lease means a company leases undeveloped property from the owner and then develops it. At the end of the lease, the owner then takes possession back and gains a developed property. STAR also is the majority shareholder in Safehold (NYSE:SAFE), a ground lease firm that focuses on commercial development.REITs are a hot sector now because rates are low, which means borrowing costs are low. And given their structure, they deliver solid dividends that outpace inflation. For example, STAR stock now delivers a 3% dividend even after the stock has run up 38% year-to-date and 48% in the past three months.As long as rates are low, this is a great niche REIT for diversification.Louis Navellier is a renowned growth investor.
