5 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

There’s no better time than now to invest in dividend stocks.

And some of the best dividend stocks that beat the S&P 500’s average yield of 2.00% can be found in the healthcare sector.

Global dividends fell by 12.2% in 2020 after the pandemic forced businesses and corporations to make a total of $220 billion in dividend cuts between the second and fourth quarters of 2020.

Since then, dividend payments jumped 26% to $471.7 billion.

And dividends paid to investors are expected to pay out $1.39 trillion by the end of the year.

We only have to look at one sector to find the best combination of yields and strong balance sheets.

Dow Jones Now Up as White House Denies Any Threat to China-U.S. Trade Deal

The Dow Jones now is up on a positive report over the status of trade between the United States and China.

Last night, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said that the deal between the world's two largest economies was over.

Navarro backtracked after other White House officials contradicted his earlier claims.

But that's not all carrying the Dow today.

Let's get into the report...


Microsoft's "Right-Hand Man" Could Double Your Money Before the Economy Recovers

"We're living in a time of rapid change," is a phrase I hear often in the media these days. I think that's a big understatement.

The coronavirus pandemic has transformed the world and the markets in a little over a month.

Nevertheless, it's tough to imagine anything that would change my strong conviction on Microsoft.

I've made no secret of the fact that I believe "Mr. Softy" is one of the best plays in a $160 billion cloud computing sector that's grown stronger by the day since 2.5 billion people went under lockdown.

It's not hard to understand the catalyst for that: Governments, institutions, and individuals have little choice but to work and transact business remotely where- and whenever possible. That includes Microsoft itself, by the way.

Cloud computing and storage is absolutely critical for that effort.

So, my Microsoft recommendation stands, of course, but today, I want to look at another long-term buy.

This firm is closely allied with Microsoft – like my dad used to say, "People judge you by the company you keep."

The company I'm about to name is actually integral to Microsoft's own success, so much so that its earnings could double in the next three years… Full Story

The Answer to Big Pharma's Biggest Problem Could Double Your Money in Just Three Years

You could forgive drug and biotech executives for having a bad case of target fixation.

After all, they do work in a field that is filled with time-consuming and expensive headaches.

Consider that the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the world's largest biotech trade organization, looked at 7,400 drug programs by 1,103 companies. They were investigating drug-approval rates.

The news was not good -just 9.6% of drugs scientists discover ever get approved for sale. That's a one-in-ten shot.

With such daunting data, it's no wonder that, even in a field already worth $1.2 trillion in global sales, industry leaders are on the lookout for ways to lower the cost of discovery and shorten time to market.

And with that goal in mind, I've uncovered a high-octane, large-cap firm that has become an essential ingredient in the drug sector's success.

It's a cloud-based leader in pharmaceutical efficiency that has a history of crushing the market by no small measure.

And it's been doubling its earnings, on average, every 18 months...

Dow Jones Industrial Average Falls 50 Points Ahead of Federal Reserve Rate Decision

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 50 points in premarket trading as investors awaited news from today's Federal Reserve meeting on interest rates.

Markets largely ignored this morning's announcement that Americans seeking unemployment benefits came in at 214,000, a figure that was in-line with economists' expectations.

The Dow Jones surged more than 445 points yesterday after the Democrats secured the House of Representatives during the Midterm elections.
