Stocks to watch next week

Hey guys, it is again time for my 5th article of Dividend stocks to watch in the next week. The last week it was quite an interesting one, the market jumped again from one all time high to another one (I don’t know how many times I will write this again and again :)). But at the same there were three health care stocks which experienced a heavy decline in its stock price.Today I will have a quick look at the following three stocks:

  • Archer Daniels Midland
  • Johnson Controls
  • PPL

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. The three stocks mentioned above, have suffered a lot in the last couple of weeks although there financial situation is still very good and the quarterly reports were good as well. Besides that having these 3 growth stocks with such a high yield gives you really some good buying opportunities. Also the pay out ratios of those stocks are still on a very low level.

Keep on investing!

What do you think about these stocks? Do you already have them in your portfolio or do you consider buying them?

  1. Yes. Some interesting companies. I agree that many of the more traditional dividend paying stocks have not participated in the last leg of this rally taking the indexes to all time highs.
    JCI is the one I am least familiar with on this list. Thanks for pointing it out. Tom
