Dividend stocks to watch week 36

Hey guys, it is again time for my 2nd Article of Dividend stocks to watch in the next week. Well it has been quite a calm week and I still think the stocks I was watching in the last week are still on my watch list. Nevertheless there were some stocks which look quite attractive through the recent declines.Today I will have a quick look at the following three stocks:

  • AT&T
  • Verizon
  • General Electric

Please be aware that all of the stocks mentioned above are already in my portfolio.

AT&T (T)

AT&T is one the stocks which can be found in every dividend portfolio, the company has increased the dividend for 30 years in a row and experienced a decent decline in the last weeks.

  • Share Price: 35.59 USD
  • Dividend: 1.96 USD
  • Yield: 5.51%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 2.93 USD
  • 2018: 3.05 USD

Performance last three months: -7.56%

Verizon (VZ)

Verizon is also one the stocks which offer quite a high yield and it also experienced a decent decline in the last couple of months. Recently it announced a dividend increase of 2.16% from 2.31 to 2.36 USD. This the 10th year of consecutive dividend increases.

  • Share Price: 46.11 USD
  • Dividend: 2.36 USD
  • Yield: 5.11%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 3.68 USD
  • 2018: 3.82 USD

Performance last three months: -0.17%

General Electric (GE)

GE is probably one of the best dividend stocks out there, never the less it running through a restructuring phase and investors fear that stock a little bit. Nevertheless I took advantage of the recent decline and bough 95 share of General Electric in the last week

  • Share Price: 23.82 USD
  • Dividend: 0.96 USD
  • Yield: 4.03%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 1.57 USD
  • 2018: 1.75 USD

Performance last three months: -13.66%

 

Conclusion

As you can see although the market jumps from one all time high to another one there are still a couple of opportunities for good investments. The companies mentioned above have clearly under performed the market but offer at the same a stable financial situation and enough room for future dividend growth. Also I think currently the performance of some dividend stocks is not so great but the market offers some good investment opportunities for us dividend investors. All the stocks above are good companies which offer a tremendous yield of more than 4%, and in combination with the four stocks I mentioned in the last article there are actually a lot of opportunities for investments.

Keep on investing!
