Best stocks to buy for the week ending Sept. 12, 2014: Last week for Money Morning Members, we highlighted 15 stocks - 10 of which are some of the best dividend stocks to own in 2015.
Four of our dividend recommendations hedge against upcoming rising interest rates - each promises to deliver both income and share-price gains to investors in the New Year. Another five are dividend-paying water stocks - a play on a "must have" commodity - that offer a yield of at least 2.6%. And our 10th dividend pick is one our chief investment strategist called "a real gem for investors" seeking dividend gains. In fact, early investors now own the stock for free - they've had the chance to receive more in dividends than they originally paid for the stock itself.
Our other five picks include an automotive play in China, three biotech penny stocks, and an investment our defense & tech expert recommends readers buy now - and never sell.
You can find all of last week's tips and recommendations here in our newest list of the best stocks to buy now.

Robinson recommended this Chinese auto e-commerce company on Feb. 4, shares have skyrocketed more than 150%.
