    57 Dividend Stocks You Can Count On in 2019

    Long-term income investors know that yield isn't everything when it comes to dividend stocks. Steadily rising payouts pay off down the road, too.Not only do rising dividends lift the yield on an investor's original cost basis, they're indicative of a firm's ability to withstand the economy's - and the market's - inevitable ups and downs."Dividend growers tend to be quality franchises built to weather diverse market environments," BlackRock portfolio manager Tony DeSpirito and now-retired BlackRock PM Robert Shearer wrote in a 2015 report. "If you think about it, these are generally high-quality businesses with ample free cash flow, and that's precisely what's needed to grow the dividend. So you have a very attractive combination of quality franchises, solid balance sheets and positive trends in cash flow and earnings."The Dividend Aristocrats are companies in Standard & Poor's 500-stock index that have raised their payouts every year for at least 25 consecutive years. They are a host of household names that offer size, longevity and familiarity, providing comfort amid market uncertainty.Here are the current 57 Dividend Aristocrats - including several new faces that were just added in January 2019. These have been among the best dividend stocks for income growth over the past few decades, and they're a great place to start if you're looking to add new dividend holdings to your long-term portfolios.

    4 Stocks Surging on China’s Turnaround

    U.S. equities are pushing higher on Thursday in part thanks to some very solid manufacturing activity data out of China earlier in the week. Not only did Q1 GDP growth hold at 6.4%, but factory activity picked up nicely after months of stagnation thanks in part to stimulus efforts out of Beijing.Overall, industrial production increased by 8.5% in March from the year earlier. Retail sales were strong as well. * 10 Best Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever All of this, along with ongoing hints of a looming U.S.-China trade agreement, is bolstering expectations that the multi-year slump in Chinese prospects is about to end. Thus, China-focused U.S stocks, especially in the industrial and heavy equipment areas, are perking up nicely. Here are four stocks to buy that are on the move:InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Caterpillar (CAT) Click to EnlargeCaterpillar (NYSE:CAT) shares are pushing up and away from prior resistance at the late February highs to return to levels not seen since early October. This extends away from the 50-day moving average, which has crossed above the 200-day average for the first time since last summer.The company will next report results on April 24 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $2.95 per share on revenues of $13.4 billion. When the company last reported on Jan. 28, earnings of $2.55 missed estimates by 44 cents on an 11.2% rise in revenues. Deere (DE) Click to EnlargeShares of tractor maker Deere (NYSE:DE) are punching up and out of a four-month consolidation range with a test of the $170-a-share level, a high that was first established back in early 2018. A breakout here would result in an extension to new record highs. * 7 Consumer Stocks to Buy and Hold for Years The company will next report results on May 17 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of $3.57 per share on revenues of $10.2 billion. When the company last reported on Feb. 15, earnings of $1.54 per share missed estimates by 22 cents on a 16.2% rise in revenues. Terex (TEX) Click to EnlargeShares of Terex (NYSE:TEX), maker of heavy lifting and material handling equipment, are challenging their 200-day moving average and look set for the first sustained push above that level since a previous rally that peaked in January 2018. Management recently issued strong forward guidance, targeting annual revenue growth of 45%.The company will next report results on May 27. Analysts are looking for earnings of 61 cents per share on revenues of $1.1 billion. When the company last reported on Feb. 25, earnings of 51 cents per share beat estimates by 4 cents on a 15.9% rise in revenues. CNH Industrial (CNHI) Click to EnlargeShares of CNH Industrial (NYSE:CNHI), the Dutch maker of agricultural and construction equipment, look set to break up and out of a three-month consolidation range as CNHI's 50-day moving average is just beginning to cross up and over its 200-day average. This is the first such "golden cross" since 2016, so value buyers have been waiting a while to get back into this name. * 7 Reasons the Stock Market Rally Isn't Over Yet The company will next report results on May 7 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 15 cents per share on revenues of $6.7 billion. When the company last reported on Feb. 7, earnings of 21 cents per share beat estimates by 6 cents on a 0.3% drop in revenues.As of this writing, William Roth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Billionaire's Copper Plant, Job Losses Pressure a Key Modi Ally

    In Tamil Nadu, a small breakaway group, called Amma Makkal Munnettra Kazagam, is attempting to make inroads in one district by promising to shutter a copper smelter run by mining giant Vedanta Ltd. due to pollution concerns. Vedanta denies that the factory has been a polluter, but the new party is resonating with local villagers, some of whom blame an ally of Modi’s ruling party for failing to act against the company owned by billionaire Anil Agarwal. “Already the smoke from the plant used to form a blanket above our heads, and any expansion at the factory would lead right up to our village borders,” said factory welder Balamurugan Marimuthu, 24, who in 2014 voted for the state’s ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party, known as AIADMK.

    10 Dividend Growth Stocks You Can’t Miss

    [Editor's note: This story was previously published in February 2019. It has since been updated and republished.]Far too often, investors view stocks through a one-dimensional lens. A search for dividend stocks may lead one to only consider current yields, for instance, while ignoring the pace at which that company's payout improves over time. At the other end of the spectrum, many solid growth stocks may have been overlooked only because investors didn't factor in an impressive dividend or dividend growth history.In other words, there's often more to the story, and those details can really matter.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWith that as the backdrop, here's a rundown of some of the market's top dividend growth stocks … names that aren't getting the respect they deserve because traders are ignoring details that matter. They may not lead either the dividend or growth categories as they stand, but on a bigger-picture basis, these picks ultimately offer up better, risk-adjusted bottom lines. They just need time to prove it. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile In no particular order… United Technologies (UTX)Dividend Yield: 2.23%United Technologies (NYSE:UTX) presents investors with something of a choice -- or will soon anyway. That is, by the end of next year it's going to be split into three separate companies. They'll each be standing on their own once that happens, for better or worse, relying on their unique strengths and working to abate their weaknesses.Still, the same management teams that made each division a part of a great whole will remain intact, doing their thing, and achieving the same success they're achieving now. At least one of the three will keep the company's streak of 25 consecutive years of dividend increases alive. And, odds are good the most dividend-oriented unit's payout will become even (relatively) bigger as each division goes its separate way, upping the combined company's current yield of 2.23%.Most likely, it will be the aerospace and defense arm that continues to carry the torch. Becton Dickinson (BDX)Dividend Yield: 1.23%The current yield of 1.23% is anything but a jaw-dropper, but Becton Dickinson (NYSE:BDX) can't fairly be boiled down to one metric. The medical equipment maker has a long history of above-average revenue growth and even more impressive earnings growth. Sales are expected to improve a little more than 9% this year, driving a 10% increase in per-share profits.But still, does BDX stock offer anything to income-minded investors? Actually, it does. It has upped its dividend for 47 straight years, with the most recent one by a respectable 2.7%. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Paying it is a quite comfortable matter too. Its average payout ratio is historically only about one-fourth of its profits. Outfront Media (OUT)Dividend Yield: 6.06%Outfront Media (NYSE:OUT) isn't exactly a household name. The company offers a variety of outdoor advertising options well beyond billboards, but as an organization that makes a point of featuring clients' brands rather than its own, consumers rarely even think about who's making those ads possible.Still, as an REIT, it's a name built from the ground up to pay dividends. Its current yield is a head-turning 6.06%, and its total payout has grown slowly but reliably since early 2016. Revenue and income growth have been almost as steady.The secret of Outfront Media's success has been overwhelming market domination. It's established in 140 markets with a variety of traditional and non-traditional assets, and in areas where it's not as strong, it's able to buy its way into consumers' views. Case in point: Early last year the company began the deployment of more than 50,000 "liveboards" in New York's most-traveled transportation stations. Broadcom (AVGO)Dividend Yield: 3.5%The market has been doubting Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) since late 2017, when the stock stopped rallying and spent the better part of last year dwindling its way to lower lows.Big mistake. Revenue never stopped growing. Neither did earnings. In fact, both reached record levels in 2018. Investors now recognize the mistake, and are working to correct it. Even with the 36% gain since July's low, though, AVGO is still a bargain by almost any standard. The forward-looking earnings multiple of 12 is cheap. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Best of all, the yield of 3.5% is downright incredible by tech stock standards. Indeed, it's even high compared to the most typical, garden-variety dividend stocks. Illinois Tool Works (ITW)Dividend Yield: 2.7%Illinois Tool Works (NYSE:ITW) is trying to put a tough 2018 behind it. The stock fell from a January 2018 high of $179 to a low near $118 in December of last year.This is another case, though, where doubts in this dividend stock have been mostly unmerited. Organic revenue growth reached 1% in Q4, driving a 70-basis-point increase in operating margins. It's not stellar, but it's more than good enough to support the current yield of 2.7% … an annualized dividend that has expanded for more than 50 consecutive years. Cullen/Frost Bankers (CFR)Dividend Yield: 2.65%Don't come to the wrong conclusion about Cullen/Frost Bankers (NYSE:CFR). It offers traditional consumer-facing banking services through its Frost Bank. Its strengths lies in business banking though, and less traditional banking activities like investment services and insurance.Regardless of the revenue and earnings mix, Cullen/Frost has earned its spot on a list of the market's top dividend stocks. Its yield of 2.65% is in line with its peers, but the bullish case is bolstered by 25 years' worth of dividend increases that have proven more than affordable. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Earnings of $5.51 per share in 2017 improved to $6.90 last year, and are expected to reach $7.09 this year. With four straight earnings beats to its credit though, that outlook may underestimate what the company's actually got in store in terms of future profits and dividend improvements. Sherwin-Williams (SHW)Dividend Yield: 1%It's still a paint company, but Sherwin-Williams (NYSE:SHW) isn't just a paint company any longer. The outfit offers a variety of coatings that cater to the special needs of several industries including automobiles.Its product diversity hasn't helped a whole lot of late. Sherwin-Williams missed its fourth-quarter earnings estimate, and the company couldn't soothe worried investors with a compelling 2019 earnings outlook. The dividend yield of 1% isn't much to write home about either.All the same, this is a name that is still logging steady increases in its payout, and if you can look past its acquisition-related expenses, is still growing its top and bottom lines. Same-store sales were up 5.1% in Q4, and full-year operating cash flows reached a record-breaking $2.04 billion in 2018. A.O. Smith (AOS)Dividend Yield: 1.63%A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS) may not have the clout it used to, as the world has moved on and left old-guard industrial names behind. This "old school" manufacturing outfit still has a few tricks up its sleeve though.The numbers confirm it. Last year's top line of $3.2 billion was up from 2017's $3 billion, and earnings improved from $296.5 million to $444.2 million. Both were records. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Where A.O. Smith really shines among dividend stocks, however, is when you look at it as a dividend growth stock. Not only has it boosted its payout for 13 straight years now, it has boosted them in a big way. Caterpillar (CAT)Dividend Yield: 2.45%This dividend stock may be surrounded by concerns about the tariff war with China, but take a good look at the results Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) has achieved of late. For all the caterwauling it and its peers have dished out, revenue has grown every quarter since the beginning of 2017, and operating income has grown almost as reliably.Dividends have continued to grow as much as they ever have too. CAT has had 25 straight years of dividend growth, and the industrial machinery outfit has never really struggled to pay it.One big upside to the unmerited doubt -- the stock's big pullback from the early 2018 peak translates into an attractive yield of 2.45%. Genuine Parts Company (GPC)Dividend Yield: 2.7%Finally, auto parts retailer Genuine Parts Company (NYSE:GPC) -- you may know it better as NAPA -- currently yields a healthy 2.7%. That's a dividend, however, that has grown for 62 consecutive years.It has been big-time growth too. The trailing-12-month payout of $3.05 is markedly better than the annualized payout of $1.15 from just ten years ago, but only reflects the company's earnings growth for the same timeframe.Those who know the company well will know earnings growth has stagnated over the course of the past three years, with a frenzy of new auto sales crimping demand for repairs. A huge swath of newly made automobiles are now between three to five years old now, however, and will start showing some wear and tear that drives sales of replacement parts. At the same time, nearly half the cars on U.S. roads now are at least 12 years old, and as such are also flirting with the need for a repair. * 7 Dental Stocks to Buy That Will Make You Smile Both trends play right into Genuine Parts Company's hands, making it one of the smart dividend stocks to look at now.As of this writing, James Brumley held a long position in Broadcom and Illinois Tool Works.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Friday: ConocoPhillips, Caterpillar and Morgan Stanley

    Stocks were back and forth all day on Thursday, and by the time the closing bell rang, the game ended in a tie. The S&P 500 only mustered an 0.11 point gain yesterday, which wasn't even enough to register a percentage change. Underscoring the lack of conviction behind the action is the fact that yesterday's was the lowest-volume day in months.Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) wasn't fazed by the broad lethargy. Its budding recovery effort was bolstered by whispers that it would soon be putting itself up for sale, sparking a 3.9% advance. At the other end of the spectrum, UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) fell 4.3% on the heels of growing political uncertainty regarding the future healthcare. Thursday's jaw-dropper was the 10% tumble Weight Watchers (NASDAQ:WTW), now called WW, took after JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite rang the alarm bells about the company even louder than she had been.Headed into the week's final trading session, the stock charts of Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) are worth the closest looks. Here's why, and what's about to happen.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips ConocoPhillips (COP)Most oil stocks are doing reasonably well, catching a tailwind driven by the rising price of oil. That dynamic, however, hasn't applied universally. The oil names that aren't being picked up by that rising tide stand out -- and do so for the wrong reason. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives ConocoPhillips is one of those names, and worse, is knocking on the door of a major breakdown. One more poor day could push COP over the edge. Click to Enlarge • The line to watch is right at $65, plotted with a red dashed line on the daily chart. That's where ConocoPhillips has made lows since February, and where it found support before the December drubbing.• There may be even more to that technical floor than readily meets the eye. Plotting Fibonacci retracement lines from the well-established floor at $42 from 2017, the $65.60 area is also a key 38.2% Fibonacci retracement line. Notice the other Fibonacci line at $56.60 has also been a key support level.• It's subtle, and perhaps means little. But, yesterday's small pullback took shape on huge volume. There could be a lot of sellers just waiting in the wings for a triggering event. Caterpillar (CAT)Last year was a tough one for Caterpillar, and by extension, for CAT shareholders. After a fantastic 2017 that served up promise of a major earnings revival, fears of rising steel prices and a tariff war put Caterpillar shares back in a downtrend. From its January-2018 peak near $173 to October's low of $112, CAT stock lost a total of 35% from high to low.Over the course of the past few months, however, we've seen hints that the downtrend has been snapped. The new uptrend isn't fully formed yet, but the lines in the sand are very well defined. Click to Enlarge • The key from here is getting above $142.80, where Caterpillar peaked a couple of times since October's capitulatory low. That resistance level is plotted in yellow on both stock charts.• At the same time, since October's bottom, the bulls have managed to form a clear rising support line, plotted in red on both stock charts.• While a move above $142.80 is still the make-or-break event, the possibility of that happening is bolstered by the golden cross that formed on Thursday. That's where the purple 50-day moving average line crosses above the white 200-day line. Morgan Stanley (MS)When we last looked at Morgan Stanley back on April 5, we were impressed by the breakout thrust that attacked the 200-day moving average line, but were concerned about a gap that had been left behind in the process. It was a perfect setup for the bears to push back.And they did, as would be expected with any fresh encounter with a major moving average line. It's what happened in the meantime and what's about to happen that makes MS worth a refreshed look. Click to Enlarge • Morgan Stanley danced with the 200-day moving average line for a day, but slipped back under it. That slide, however, was just enough to almost close the gap that had been left behind on the April 3.• At the same time, the technical ceiling around $45, marked with a yellow dashed line on both charts, still stands and augments the potential resistance made by the 200-day moving average line.• Though not yet over that one last hump, if Morgan Stanley shares can clear that line, there's little left to hold a rally back.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    5 Dow Jones Stocks Threatening Dow 26,000

    U.S. equities are under pressure on Wednesday after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi failed to reassure investors amid evidence of an economic slowdown across Europe. Trying to recapture the magic of his 2012 "whatever it takes" statement, he said the institution wasn't worried about recession risk since it was ready to use "all instruments" to support growth with monetary policy.Markets yawned. Central bankers suddenly seem less than omnipotent.Adding to the pressure is ongoing problems for Boeing (NYSE:BA) with a lawsuit filed for allegedly defrauding investors after two fatal crashes of its 737 MAX aircraft.
