Pizza Hut Cheez-It Pizza is a thing now and we don't really know what to think.Source: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com Alright. Just work with me here. Imagine a Cheez-It for me. Now just take that and scale it up. Make it big enough to cover the palm of your hand. Sound good? But now that the Cheez- It is so large, it has all this empty space inside of it. So we fill that up with mozzarella cheese, and toss in some pepperoni if that's your preference. That is what the new Pizza Hut Cheez-It Pizza is. Also, you can dip it in marinara.Honestly, this seems like a weird one to me. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not saying it sounds bad. I've had plenty of weird food concoctions during my 28 years of life and there's been stranger ones. Still, I have to really wonder how well this promotion will go.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Momentum Stocks to Buy On the Dip Let's take a journey on over to Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) to see how its users are reacting to the Pizza Hut Cheez-It Pizza. * "I am confused by the . . . scale of these. are they cheez-it-size mini-pizzas or regular-size slices enveloped by giant cheez-its? @pizzahut why are you doing this?" * Pizza Hut and Kellogg creating a stuffed Cheez-It pizza, because when you think good pizza, you think "cheddar" and "cracker," and when you think snack, you think of a whole delivered "pizza" " * "Deleted my search for personal trainers so that i could look up pizza hut's cheez it pizza… accurately describes my motivation." * "So it's Cheez-it flavored crust stuffed with mozzarella?

Dividend stocks are a well-worn prescription for what ails an investor's upset stomach. Are a cascade of troubling headlines and fears of Wall Street volatility making you nauseous? A regular stream of cash distributions can help smooth out your returns and restore your sanity.But investors also are increasingly targeting a more direct solution to volatility: low-volatility funds. These products are designed to piece together a basket of stocks whose movements aren't as exaggerated as the rest of the market, and they're gaining in popularity. The iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol USA ETF (USMV), for instance, had enjoyed nearly $6 billion in net inflows through 2019's midway point. Invesco S&P; 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV), which is roughly a third of the size of USMV, had brought in $2 billion.Fortunately, dividends and low volatility aren't an either/or proposition. You can get both, and DIVCON can help us discover these more stable dividend stocks.The DIVCON system from exchange-traded fund provider Reality Shares examines the payout health of all dividend stocks among Wall Street's 1,200 largest companies. It does that by poring into metrics including profit growth, free cash flow (how much cash companies have left over after they meet all their obligations) and even the Altman Z-score, which helps assess a company's likelihood of a bond default or bankruptcy. The resulting rating system (a 1-5 scale in which DIVCON 5 indicates the healthiest of payouts and DIVCON 1 indicates dividends at the most risk) provides a measure of a dividend's sustainability and chance of future growth.Here are seven dividend stocks for a little peace of mind. All seven stocks not only boast strong DIVCON 4 ratings, but have exhibited lower volatility and total-return outperformance (that's price plus dividends) versus the S&P; 500 over the past year.

Shares of Wendy's (WEN) were down as much as 11% in intraday trading today, and closed down over 2% on Monday after the company announced they are ramping up spending on their breakfast line for a nationwide release sometime in 2020.

Taco Bell is part of the Yum Brands Inc. portfolio. Fast-food and fast-casual chains like fellow Yum restaurant KFC and Restaurant Brands International Inc.'s Burger King have recently added vegetarian and vegan options to their menus, scoring points with consumers.

Stocks are entering the new week with a significant technical tailwind. Last Thursday's price breakout finally launched the S&P 500 and other major indexes above their recent trading ranges, likely setting the stage for a return to record heights. Given the favorable backdrop, shopping for the best stocks to buy now seems wise.Today, I'm here to help. I've scoured the market for the best setups heading into Monday. A premium was placed on companies whose share price held up well during the recent market turmoil. Generally, stocks that hold up the best during corrections are those that lead the market higher when sellers finally depart.On top of relative strength, today's trio also boasts lower-risk entry points. Rather than chasing stocks extended from support zones, we're identifying those that are on the cusp of popping.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Buy-and-Hold Stocks to Own Forever With all of that in mind, here are three all-star stocks to buy now. All-Star Stocks to Buy Now: Snap (SNAP)Source: ThinkorSwim Snap (NYSE:SNAP) is on pace for a banner year. Its 2019 gain stands just shy of 200%. The turnabout has been fueled by better-than-expected earnings and a price trend that has roasted shortsellers. Since July's earnings announcement lit a fire under the stock, we've seen a falling wedge pattern form to digest gains.The pause has allowed the 50-day moving average to catch-up and overbought conditions to ease. It has also created a lower-risk entry point for traders reticent to chase after the earnings-driven rally. Friday's high-volume breakout completed the falling wedge and is pointing toward higher prices.To capitalize, buy the Jan $16 calls for around $2.30 if we break above today's high. The lower implied volatility is making long calls an attractive play. Yum Brands (YUM)Source: ThinkorSwim Yum Brands (NYSE:YUM) has been a steady grower this year. Its consistent ascent completely ignored the recent trade war drama, sparing shareholders the losses inflicted in so many other stocks. Its 2019 gain of 30% has bested the S&P 500's 19% by a hefty margin.Each time YUM stock has broken resistance this year, we've seen robust follow through to reward buyers. The track record has me eyeing its current basing pattern with interest. The $120 zone has thus far halted multiple recent rallies. But with the rising 20-day and 50-day moving averages pushing higher, I think it's only a matter of time before the ceiling gives way. * 10 Buy-and-Hold Stocks to Own Forever If you want to bank on the success of its breakout and a run into year-end, then buy the Jan $120/$125 bull call spread for around $1.90. The risk is $1.90, and the potential reward is $3.10. Alphabet (GOOGL)Source: ThinkorSwim Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) had an advantage heading into last month's market swoon that many of its tech peers did not. It scored a large up gap on earnings that pushed it well above its major moving averages. As a result, even though GOOGL stock suffered in August, it remained above its 50-day moving average, maintaining the integrity of its uptrend.And now, it's on the brink of breaching short-term resistance, providing a clean breakout setup for spectators to capitalize on.Implied volatility is dirt cheap, making call spreads the easy play here. Buy the Nov $1,220/$1,250 bull call spread for $14.50. The risk is $14.50 and will be lost if GOOGL sits below $1,220 at expiration. The reward of $15.50 will be captured if it sits above $1,250 at expiration.As of this writing, Tyler Craig held bullish positions in SNAP.
