It was another sleepy day for the major indices, but not a quiet day with individual stocks. We saw some massive moves in the market following earnings, so let's get started and see some top stock trades for Friday. Keep an eye on Realty Income (NYSE:O) as it bounces off trend support into potential moving average resistance, as well as Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ). JNJ put in another higher low on the chart, increasing the odds of a breakout over $140. Finally, Ford (NYSE:F) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) report earnings tonight, two trades we laid out on Wednesday. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: FacebookShares of Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) are popping on Thursday, up 6.4% after the company impressed with its earnings results. After consolidating over $180 for the past few weeks, FB stock is on the move once again. It pushed through that important $185 to $190 zone, the former of which also sports the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement for the 52-week range. Shares backed off $200, as profit takers unloaded a bit after the big rally this year. * 7 Dividend Stocks That Could Double Over the Next Five Years Now what? I want to see FB stock hold this $185 to $190 area as support now. Ideally, FB would give us a pullback into this area, allowing its moving averages to catch up a bit and consolidate some of this move. If it holds, it increases the odds of a move back over $200. That said, the bullish momentum could continue with a pullback too. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: 3M CoNot making such a healthy move on Thursday is 3M Co (NYSE:MMM). Disappointing earnings results drilled the stock to the tune of 13%. Will support buoy the stock and keep it from more losses? $190-ish has played a role in the past and $192 also has the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement for the 52-week range, so it's certainly possible. That said, $180 had to make a stand twice in the fourth quarter. With the 200-week at $182 and with a quarter like this, I wouldn't be surprised to see some more selling before buyers make a big stand. See how it handles $190 to $192-ish on Friday. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: AltriaAltria (NYSE:MO) is also getting drilled on earnings, down 6% on the day. The stock has been making a series of lower highs and the 200-week moving average acted as resistance over the past few weeks. That doesn't bode well for intermediate term bulls out there. MO is now below all three major moving averages on the weekly chart, with no real support coming into play until $48. It's possible it finds a bottom and reverses before that point, but shares look unattractive until $52. Unless it reclaims $52, MO is in no man's land. If it does recover, see how it handles the 20-week and 50-week moving averages near $54. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: ComcastComcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) was a winner on Thursday, rallying 3% on its quarterly earnings results. It cleared $40 a few weeks ago and this week's gains only add to bulls' recent optimism. A potential deal with Disney (NYSE:DIS) over Comcast's stake in Hulu could be a win-win for both companies too. This week's low came right at the stock's prior weekly closing high in January 2018. A grind up past $44 -- near the stock's highs -- is definitely possible. CMCSA would look interesting on a pullback though, especially down into this week's lows near $42. It's where the 10-week moving average and uptrend support come into play too. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: TeslaTesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock did not decline the way many bears were hoping on Thursday. That's despite the automaker missing on earnings and revenue expectations. In any regard, the stock is showing signs of a breakdown.Shares have been building a base under the 200-week moving average and remain in a steep downtrend. Below the $242 area and TSLA will be making multi-year lows. * 5 Hot Dividend Stocks to Buy as the Weather Heats Up From the long side, this one does not look tempting. For that to change, it needs to hold this area and get back above its 200-week moving average. On top of that, it needs to clear downtrend resistance. If it doesn't, a flush lower is more than possible.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long JNJ.

The leading net-lease REIT just made its first international acquisition, and it’s a big deal for the future of the company.
British Land has sold £429m of J Sainsbury superstores as it shrinks its retail property portfolio amid turmoil in the sector. The company, one of the UK’s largest listed landlords, said on Tuesday that a joint venture between the property company and the supermarket had sold 12 stores to Realty Income Corporation, a New York-listed group. Supermarkets have been less affected than other parts of the retail sector by a crisis resulting from factors including the transition to online and higher costs.
British Land said its share of the proceeds from the disposal would be 193.5 million pounds and the portfolio represented a modest premium to the company's September 2018 book value. The deal, expected to be completed in May, will reduce British Land's Superstores exposure to 1.3 percent of its portfolio with six standalone stores remaining, it said. "We are focused on further sales of retail assets which are not aligned to our strategy and continue to make good progress," British Land said.
British Land Company Plc said on Tuesday it and joint venture partner Sainsbury Plc sold 12 Superstores properties to U.S.-based Realty Income Corp for 429 million pound ($556.9 million). British Land said its share of the proceeds from the disposal would be 193.5 million pounds and the portfolio represented a modest premium to the company's September 2018 book value. The deal, expected to be completed in May, will reduce British Land's Superstores exposure to 1.3 percent of its portfolio with six standalone stores remaining, it said.
SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Realty Income Corporation (Realty Income, NYSE: O), The Monthly Dividend Company®, today announced that the company has signed a definitive agreement to acquire, from a joint venture of affiliates of J Sainsbury PLC ("Sainsbury's") and British Land PLC, 12 properties located in the United Kingdom ("UK") for £429 million under long-term net lease agreements with Sainsbury's. The transaction is Realty Income's first international real estate acquisition.
With the market stagnating near these upper levels, but not showing a willingness to pullback in any meaningful way, trade setups are becoming harder to find. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as it gives traders a chance to wait for more opportune trades. Let's see which top stock trades are presenting themselves now. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: TeslaTesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) had its Autonomy Investor Day on Monday afternoon. Enthusiasts are excited by what the company has to show off and doubters are eager to pounce on anything that suggests Tesla has no edge.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhat does it mean for the stock price though?Shares were lower by about 3.5% heading into the event and near long-time support. This seemingly sets up the stock up for a bounce, particularly with earnings just around the corner on April 24th. However, some concerns are mounting on the technical front. * 3 Stocks on Shaky Ground For starters, Tesla hasn't been able to break over its downtrend (blue line) on a closing basis for almost three months now. Further, the 200-week moving average -- which has been support many times over the past few years -- is not giving TSLA the bounce it needs. In fact, TSLA stock has closed below this mark four of the last five weeks, assuming we skip this week's candle.Needless to say, Tesla is sitting at an important juncture. Below $250 and the situation could go from bad to worse in a hurry. Back over $280+ though and the bulls will have momentum back on their side.Be aware of two situations, too: either a dump before earnings or a strong rally. Either could end up being a head fake. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: Gilead SciencesDown about 2% on the day and Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) isn't looking all that good. Keep this one simple.It's flirting with vital support between $60 and $62 with downtrend resistance (blue line) squeezing it lower. Below $60 and GILD is in no man's land. Above downtrend resistance and GILD will have to contend with $70. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: TwitterTwitter (NYSE:TWTR) will report earnings on Tuesday before the open, as the stock has been trading in a very tight range for the month. For now, it's holding above the 20-day and 50-day moving averages and just below stiff resistance at $36.On earnings, look for a close over $36 to signal a potential breakout to higher prices. On a pullback, see that uptrend support holds. If it does, the more quickly it can reclaim the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, the better.If uptrend support doesn't hold, $30 is in the cards and possibly $28 if that doesn't hold. Let's not get over our skis though. I want to see how TWTR trades after earnings first. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: The Trade DeskWe have been flagging The Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD) a lot over the past few trading sessions, either looking for a breakout or a breakdown. As it so happens, a breakout is we're getting and now investors are trying to position themselves in the name.If you missed the entry trigger over downtrend resistance, chasing may not be worth the risk. Current longs should watch $215 to see if TTD can push through. If it can, a new breakout could be underway and more upside could exist, which gives an opportunity to investors looking to get on board.Notice that TTD is not overbought according to the RSI, while its momentum via the MACD is just swinging in bulls' favor, (both measures shown via blue circles).Should we get a pullback to the backside of prior downtrend resistance (black line), it could be a buying opportunity if it holds as support. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: Realty IncomeWe flagged this one about a week ago as the REITs started to come under pressure. I wasn't sure if it was a premature reaction or a savvy move, but I followed my gut and exited my REITs as this action developed.At the time, we said look for $68 to act as support in Realty Income (NYSE:O). After strong selling, it was support -- for one day. On Monday, O cratered below this mark as the stock is quickly down 9% from its highs less than a month ago. The 20-day moving average is also rolling below the 50-day moving average, which isn't a deal-breaker for bulls, but certainly isn't a great development.So what now? * 7 Tech Stocks With Too Much Risk, Not Enough Upside Almost 10% off its highs and it's hard to be a seller at this point. But I don't know that it's fallen far enough to buy yet. One strategy? Let it shake out. A rally back up to $68 or to the 20-day/50-day that's met by sellers could be an opportunity on the short side or for bulls to unload some of their holding. If it keeps going lower without a bounce, look for an eventual buying opportunity.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Realty Income is a great company, but it's priced for perfection. Here are two high-yield net lease REITs that aren't quite as dear.
For those investors in retirement, it all comes down to income. How can you convert your lifetime of savings into a steady stream of paychecks? There's plenty of ways to do that. But one of the best continues to dividend stocks. After all, dividend stocks generally offer higher yields than bonds and give you the ability to see your income rise through increasing dividend payouts as well as grow thanks to capital appreciation. Bonds, CDs, and other traditional fixed income products can't do that.The only problem is, not all dividend stocks are worthy for retirees.Those investors in retirement can't afford to see their payouts get cut or see their capital go up in flames. There's simply not enough time to recoup losses or balance out volatility. To this end, it takes a certain variety of dividend stocks to get you through your golden years. A focus on quality is key.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth Which dividend stocks make the grade for retirement? Here are five dividends stocks that are perfect for retirement portfolios. Snap-on (SNA)Source: Snap-On via Wikimedia (Modified)Dividend Yield: 2.43%Selling screwdrivers, wrenches and other hand tools may not seem that exciting, but this niche has helped make Snap-On Incorporated (NYSE:SNA) one of the best dividend stocks around.SNA manufactures a variety of tools, equipment, and repair information systems for various industrial markets. Many professional mechanics and assembly workers swear by Snap-on's better-made products. And with a simple socket wrench set costing north of $300, SNA isn't exactly going after DIY and weekend warriors here. You need high-performance when you're fixing a bullet train or repairing a wind turbine.This focus on the industrial market has widely insulated SNA from the whims of the consumer market. Because of this, SNA has paid dividends without interruptions or reductions since 1939. Its last increase was a strong 15.85% jump.Part of that jump comes from the reduction in corporate taxes. The other continues to be Snap-On's moves into higher-margined tech products. Modern machinery is chock-full of computers and sensors. SNA is quickly becoming the standard provider for computer-based diagnostics equipment. This has provided a supercharger to its earnings in recent years. EPS surged 12.6% year-over-year in 2018.All in all, Snap-On's continued leadership position in its niche market continues to pay benefits. That makes it one of the best dividend stocks for retirees. Becton Dickinson and Co (BDX)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 1.25%Admittingly, the headline yield on Becton Dickinson and Co (NYSE:BDX) isn't much to write home about. BDX's current yield of 1.25% is about what you can earn from a savings account these days. However, the story at the medical device maker is one of payout growth. This why retirees should include BDX in their portfolio of dividend stocks.BDX is one of the world's largest producers of needles, syringes, and other sharps-related devices. This catalog of products spans everything from "basics" like insulin needles and catheters to more advanced regional anesthesia and drug delivery products. The beauty is that the bulk of these items are designed to be single use. That means your doctor and hospital has to come back every month to get more of them. Becton's integration of rival Bard has only expanded on this catalog as well.This, plus moves into life science products and more high-tech drug delivery medical devices, has continued to make BDX a cash flow machine. The firm has used that cash flow to reward shareholders by paying down the debt used to buy Bard as well as increase its dividend and conduct buybacks. Over the last decade, Becton has managed to double its dividend based on its strong cash flows. Given its strengths, there's a good chance that BDX will keep that streak going. * 5 Wonderful REITs to Buy Today For retirees, BDX stock offers a chance to grow their income over the long haul. Home Depot Inc. (HD)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 2.66%It's no secret that retail has been a blood bath. Online shopping has continued to hit many traditional brick and mortar retailers hard. Empty storefronts and dead shopping malls are quickly becoming the norm. But just don't tell that to Home Depot (NYSE:HD). The home improvement retailer is killing it and has proved that its a top dividend stock. Retirees should take notice.Much of HD's recent success comes from its moves into omnichannel retailing. Consumers these days what to buy products when and how they what them. They want them in-store, online, via mobile apps, etc. Home Depot seems to have cracked the code. Spending on technology and beefing-up its operations have worked and customers keep hitting up HD for their home improvement needs. Sales grew nearly 11% last quarter to reach a whopping $26.5 billion based on its omnichannel moves.HD has clearly gotten the message about the changing face of retail.Keeping that going into the future and helping pad its dividend is that HD has also figured out how to attract Millennial and younger customers. Thanks to new classes, videos, and DIY help, Home Depot has continued to attract the customers of tomorrow. That's a demographic that many other retailers are struggling to court.With its strong growth, HD recently was able to increase its dividend by 32% and conduct more than $15 billion in buybacks. Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 1.25%Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is proving that old school tech can still be a fertile ground for finding dividend stocks -- especially those for retirees. The key has been CEO's Satya Nadella vision to transform Mr. Softy into a software as a service (SaaS) company and reap plenty of reoccurring/subscription revenues.Today, the cloud rules the roost at MSFT. Microsoft's Azure and Dynamics 365 platforms are quickly becoming the standards for many enterprise customers. Growing by double-digits, MSFT has been able to reap plenty of earnings/cash flows from its new cloud model. Better still, is that MSFT has been able to turn that cloud model toward regular Joes as well. Office 365, as well as its Xbox gaming/entertainment units, are also seeing plenty of growth. Total revenues for MSFT jumped by 12% last quarter on the strength of its cloud operations.All of this continues to translate into plenty of profits and growing cash balance. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm And MSFT continues to share those profits with investors. Since 2010, the tech firm has managed to grow its payout by over 253%. That's very impressive. And given its huge cash balance, strong cash flows and high margins, there's a good chance that Microsoft will keep that streak going. For retirees, that makes MSFT one of the best dividend stocks to own for the long haul. Realty Income (O)Dividend Yield: 3.80%When your corporate tag line is the "Monthly Dividend Company," there's a lot of pressure to keep to live up to that promise. Luckily for Realty Income (NYSE:O) it has been able to keep that promise for over 584 consecutive months.That steadfastness of payouts comes from Realty Income's business model. O is one of the largest owners of freestanding real estate in the country -- with more than 5.700 different properties under its wing. Freestanding real state includes everything from convenience stores and restaurants to movie theaters, and automotive parts/services centers. It's the standard fare that dots our suburban landscape. With nearly 500 different tenants and its huge swath of property, O provides unmatched diversification.As if O couldn't get any better, the vast bulk of these properties are so-called triple-net leased. This means the tenants are responsible for taxes, maintenance and other costs related to the property. This allows Realty Income to keep more of its rent checks.Well, not keep. O has been rewarding shareholders for decades. It's latest increase represents its 101st monthly jump to its payout. This follows its 100th increase back in January. A monthly check that keeps growing? If that's not the perfect stock for a retiree, then I don't know what is.With a 3,8% yield, conservative balance sheet and monthly payouts, Realty Income could be a perfect dividend stock for a retirement portfolio.Disclosure: At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt did not hold a position in any of the stocks mentioned.

Everything you think you know about REITs? Forget it before you put Realty Income (NYSE:O) under the microscope. Realty Income stock is far less subject changes in interest rates than most investors care to believe, and much more of a sentiment-driven trading vehicle than most investors care to concede.Source: Yuriy Trubitsyn via UnsplashTo that end, now would be a good time to take profits on Realty Income stock if you're long, and if you're daring enough, perhaps even short it.That's a counterintuitive strategy for students of what makes the market tick. Rising rates are supposed to work against real estate investment trusts by increasing the cost of capital, while falling or stagnant interest rates help make and keep money cheap.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsRight now the Federal Reserve seems mostly ready to let rates stand pat, with some whispers of a rate-cut circulating in the market's ether. That's supposed to be good for REITs.In the real world though, we've rarely seen that relationship hold up. In the real world, Realty Income is uncomfortably vulnerable here. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives Right REITOn paper, it shouldn't have happened. But it did. Against a backdrop of steady rate increases over the course of last year, Realty Income stock rallied from an early-2018 low near $47 to a high-near $74 just a couple of weeks ago. That's a 57% gain.Why didn't the Fed's four rate-hikes deflate the rally? Because there's far more to the matter than mere interest rates. Many investors get the market's easy stuff. Earnings growth is good. Bear markets are bad. Diversity staves off volatility.Not all investors can fully process multi-faceted and sometimes arbitrary pressures on a stock though. Realty Income is one of those names with a lot of moving parts.Chief among them is the fact that it rents space to some of the world's most recognized and reliable companies. Its top tenants include Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA), FedEx (NYSE:FDX) and Dollar General (NYSE:DG). Those companies may ebb and flow, but for the most part they're not going anyway. And, unlike 2008's subprime mortgage meltdown, the underlying assets that make up realty income aren't quite as subject to an implosion as on over-mortgaged home is.If nothing else, Realty Income has been and always will be at least reasonably dependable.There's a much bigger (albeit related) tailwind that's boosted the O stock price far more than rising rates have worked against it, however. That is, the solid economic growth that inspired last year's quartet of interest rate increases in the first place. Wrong TimeWhile the tariff war, in addition to a long-lived government shutdown, has dialed back the impressive and consistent GDP growth, it still is growth.After soaring to a pace of more than 2.0% in the latter half of 2017 and racing to annualized growth of 4.2% in the second quarter of 2018, Corporate America was humming. Corporate profits reached record levels during the third quarter of last year, prompting investment in more growth and the leasing of new profit centers.Realty Income had no trouble finding and keeping consumer-facing tenants, boasting an occupancy rate of 98.6%. It was able to raise its average rental prices as well. Economic strength mattered more than rising interest rates, pushing shares upward.The backdrop is changing now though, for fundamental as well as psychological reasons. Fundamentally, the economy may still be on a reasonably firm footing, but growth rates are undeniably slowing. International trade friction is very real, and the year-over-year comps translate into tougher comparisons.In the meantime, Q4's GDP growth was pared back to match multi-year lows near 2.2%. It's not bad, but it's certainly not red hot. There's also no particular reason to suspect growth will turn red-hot again anytime soon.Psychologically, investors may be starting to realize they got a little ahead of themselves with Realty Income last year. It's not the first time it's happened either. The weekly chart tells the tale. This REIT is really good at rallying for prolonged periods, but that rally is always unwound in a big way.The relative slowdown in the very economic growth that catapulted Realty Income stock last year, will serve as the bearish fodder the market needs now that shares are uncomfortably overextended. Bottom Line for Realty Income StockThe great irony is, none of the stock's past rises and falls nor any of its future gains and losses will actually be a full reflection of the REIT's results. Revenue, operating income and funds from operations are all quite steady, and the real estate investment trust recently announced its 101st dividend increase.It's been a picture of consistency and reliability. The big swings of the O stock price are largely prompted by traders' ever-changing perception.Nevertheless, if that's the game most investors are playing, then that's the game would-be buyers have to play too. Anyone interested may want to let some of the froth burn off first. It could take a while to gauge the true strength of the economy here anyway.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The stock market's robust 14.7% gain thus far in 2019, as measured by the S&P 500 Index (SPX) at today's open, has lifted a large number of stocks, and many investors forecast more gains as the economy strengthens. Goldman Sachs says, "real GDP growth will rebound to 3.0% in 2Q from the 0.7% pace in 1Q that encompasses the 34-day federal government shutdown," according to the firm's latest US Weekly Kickstart report.

[Editor's note: This article was previously published in January 2019. It has been updated and republished.]Most dividend stocks pay their shareholders quarterly, but a few dividend-yielding stocks offer monthly distributions. The group is small: less than 100, with many of the offerings being exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or closed-end actively managed funds. And so investors looking for monthly dividend stocks to buy are limiting their universe quite a bit.And there are quite a few attractive dividend-yielding stocks that pay out monthly. Several offer compelling cases for both their upside and safe dividends, with attributes that go beyond simply the timing of their distributions.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Marijuana Stocks to Play the CBD Trend These six stocks all fit that bill, offering not only monthly dividends but potential share price appreciation and reasonable payout ratios. Realty Income (O)Realty Income (NYSE:O) is the best-known of the monthly dividend payers, to the point that it has trademarked the slogan "The Monthly Dividend Company."In terms of past performance, the monthly payouts have been just the cherry on top of a delicious sundae. O stock has returned -- including dividends -- an average of 15.8% annually since 1994, according to a recent investor presentation. It has been one of the best-performing real estate investment trusts in the market over that stretch.O stock has become much more expensive over the past few months, bouncing more than 19% from February lows. But there's still a nice bull case at the moment. O yields a bit over 3.7%,The portfolio looks both safe and nicely diversified, with Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) and FedEx (NYSE:FDX) being its two largest tenants. Considering Realty Income's track record, it's worth staying long.Source: Shutterstock LTC Properties (LTC)Like Realty Income, senior housing and healthcare property REIT LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC) has bounced nicely off recent lows. And like with O stock, there's still a solid bull case for LTC even after recent gains.With the "baby boom" generation aging, demand should stay strong. Meanwhile, LTC still yields 5.06%, though growth has been below that of most dividend-yielding stocks (it has been held flat for about two years now). * 7 Beaten-Up Stocks to Buy as They Reverse Course There are some risks here: investors are concerned that changing healthcare insurance reimbursement policies will impact LTC's tenants. The stock actually hit a five-year low earlier this year as a result. But sentiment has improved -- and should continue to do so. With LTC still trading at a reasonable 11.56 P/E, the bounce could continue. Add to that a 5.o6% yield, paid monthly, and it's definitely worth a look.Source: Shutterstock Shaw Communications (SJR)Canadian telecommunications company Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) hasn't posted particularly strong performance over the past few years. SJR actually has declined nearly 10% over the past five years -- and has lost about 10% of its value over the past year alone.There are some concerns about the wireless industry in Canada, much as there are in the U.S. But Shaw is growing nicely, with revenue up so far this year. Margin expansion hasn't followed yet, but as Shaw continues to take market share, profit growth may follow.But with a 4.34% dividend yield and an 20.04x forward price-to-earnings multiple, SJR isn't pricing in much improvement. With 5G a potential catalyst in the mid-term, there's a nice case for SJR stock at current levels.Dividends are announced in Canadian dollars, which can affect the payouts received by American investors. Still, a monthly dividend, a 4%-plus yield and a potential upside provide a nice combination here.Source: Marriott Select Service Hotels via Flickr (Modified) Apple Hospitality REIT (APLE)Apple Hospitality REIT (NYSE:APLE) owns 241 hotels in the U.S. -- 115 of the hotels operate under the Marriott (NASDAQ:MAR) banner, with the remaining 126 flying under the Hilton (NYSE:HLT) flag.Those two strong brands underpin a strong portfolio. Geographic diversification limits downside risk as well. With an impressive 7.55% yield paid monthly, that makes APLE one of the best dividend-yielding stocks in terms of monthly income. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them The story admittedly isn't perfect. Growth has been relatively meager, and APLE's dividend has stayed at 10 cents per share per month since a 2015 IPO. Investors would have been much better off buying either MAR or HLT, both of which have better than doubled from early 2016 lows.But for income-focused investors, APLE looks like a strong pick.Source: Shutterstock Pembina Pipeline (PBA)Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) is the biggest company on this list and the riskiest. Pipeline companies generally are lower-risk plays in the oil and gas space, but Pembina does have some concerns. Canadian oil stocks have struggled of late, and Pembina levered up to acquire Veresen last year.That said, there's still a lot to like here. Earnings increased in the double-digits last year, largely due to the acquisition. PBA pays a solid 4.69% dividend. Valuation is relatively reasonable against U.S. rivals like Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) and Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA).If Pembina can continue to grow once the Veresen acquisition is fully integrated, there should be nice upside on top of the 4%-plus yield.Source: Shutterstock STAG Industrial (STAG)STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG) isn't necessarily a spectacular stock, but it's one that can drive steady long-term returns along with monthly payouts. The company leases industrial buildings to single tenants and has a nicely diversified portfolio from both a customer and geographic standpoint. The average lease length currently is nearly five years, which should keep recent dividend growth intact. * 7 Winning High-Yield Dividend Stocks With Payouts Over 5% Longer-term, there are minor concerns. Valuation isn't necessarily cheap, at over 15 forward P/E. An economic downturn could lead to lease cancellations or even customer bankruptcies. Investors focused on value might want to wait for a cheaper price than the current stock price of $28.71.But investors looking for growing monthly dividend payouts don't have a ton of options, and STAG very well might be the best one.As of this writing, Vince Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Realty Income Corp. (O) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
Stocks were rocking and rolling on Thursday, with all three major U.S. indices putting up big gains on the day. After Wednesday's Fed news, that's no surprise. Let's get a look at some of today's big movers with our must-see stock trades. Must-See Stock Trades 1: AppleEarlier this month we outlined the long trade in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Then earlier this week, we said investors should consider locking in some profits after the stock's monster move. Now AAPL is erupting more than 4% on Thursday as the longs keep on cashing in.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 5 Stocks To Buy for the Happiest Employees $200 becomes an obvious magnet, even as its RSI and MACD (green circles) continue into extended territory. This setup does not favor new long positions, but the recent strength does give us a solid buy-the-dips setup going forward.If you're still long, consider trailing up those stops and locking in some gains. Must-See Stock Trades 2: GuessGuess? (NYSE:GES) picked a pretty interesting time to report earnings, with the worse-than-expected results coming on the evening before Levi (NYSE:LEVI) went public.The latter is up more than 30% on the day as investors gobble up the new IPO. On the plus side, GES stock is clinging to range support near $19. This level has been vital over the past 12 months.There are better buys out there than GES, but investors who feel compelled to go long can use Thursday's low as their stop-loss. Must-See Stock Trades 3: VentasVentas (NYSE:VTR) isn't necessarily the top stock to focus on, but its price action gives us opportunity. On Wednesday we talked about how the Fed gave bulls the green light, saying it's essentially on hold this year when it comes to rate hikes. Well, that bodes incredibly well for dividend stocks and REITs.There's a reason why names like AT&T (NYSE:T), VTR, Realty Income (NYSE:O), Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) and others are surging on the day. Look to see if these names can give us some follow through on Friday and into next week. (Here's the setup on AT&T).For VTR specifically, it held uptrend support and is back over the 20-day and 50-day moving averages. Look to see if it can get to and breakout over $65. Must-See Stock Trades 4: QorvoShares of Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) erupted more than 7% on Thursday thanks to an upgrade from Goldman Sachs. But an earnings beat from Micron (NASDAQ:MU) and continued strong price action from Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) (trade layout here) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) (trade layout here) certainly helps.The move up through $74 is significant. Not only has this level played a notable role in the past, but it's the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement for the 52-week range. Maintaining this level paves the way to $78. Should QRVO fail to hold this level, it would be encouraging to see it hold the 200-day as support.Bulls shouldn't let Qorvo get below the 20-day and uptrend support. There's still room to rally according to the MACD and RSI, despite Thursday's big move. Must-See Stock Trades 5: SquareTrending higher and peeking through resistance is Square (NYSE:SQ). The move puts SQ over the 20-day moving average and if it can close over $78, it opens up the possibility of a move to $82.50.This name tends to be volatile, but over the 200-day and SQ stock is fine. Admittedly that's a wide range from current levels but the RSI and MACD still leave plenty of room for the stock to rally. Must-See Stock Trades 6: Electronic ArtsLet's do one more really quick with Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA). * 10 Stocks on the Rise Heading Into the Second Quarter Up 7.5% on the day and it's breaking out of its recent range in a big way. I want to see EA stay over $100 now. My upside target is $108.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long AAPL, VTR, O, DLR and SQ.
