Top 5 Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now

Social Security’s importance to our nation’s retired workers simply can’t be overstated. According to data from the Social Security Administration (SSA) as of April 2018, some 62% of retirees lean on the program for at least half of their monthly income, with slightly more than a third wholly reliant on Social Security for 90% or more of their income. Without this guaranteed monthly payout, the elderly poverty rate likely would be much higher than it is now.

What is COLA and why does it matter?

Because of Social Security’s importance to retirees, there arguably is no event more anticipated by current beneficiaries than the annual release of cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) data in mid-October. Think of COLA as the annual “raise” that beneficiaries receive. It’s designed to be reflective of the annual inflation that beneficiaries face as a result of the rising price of goods and services.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: AAPL, DBX, STMP
    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher. Apple Inc.(NASDAQ: AAPL) continues to remain in the headlines. The firm’s iPhone sales had been declining before the company decided to stop reporting unit sales beginning this year. But as Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald told readers in October 2017, Apple is no longer a device company. In fact, it hasn’t been a device company for years. Its shift into services has helped boost investor confidence, and it just made a major announcement that will target firms like Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Hulu. Apple is one of our top five stocks to buy right now. For the full list, go here now. Shares of Stamps.com Inc.(NASDAQ: STMP) plunged more than 50% in pre-market hours after the shipping products company announced it was ending its exclusive partnership with the USPS. The company also said it expected a massive downturn in profitability. The firm’s full-year guidance was set between $5.15 and $6.15. That is well below the $10.79 figure anticipated by analysts. During its earnings call last night, the firm’s CEO said that USPS would not accept the terms of its partnership proposal. On Friday, look for earnings reports from Aut

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Another tech company on the list, Automatic Data Processing (Nasdaq: ADP) is, like Intel, priced to perfection. And, similar to Intel, there is more and more competition in its core business of human resources and human capital management solutions — from more-traditional players like Paychex (Nasdaq: PAYX) to small-business focused TriNet (Nasdaq: TNET) to cloud-based Workday (Nasdaq: WDAY). Up nearly 26% year-to-date, consider taking some gains off the table.

  • [By ]

    Paychex (Nasdaq: PAYX) handles the payroll for 650,000 clients, mostly small businesses with 10 to 50 employees — the economy’s growth engine.

    These payroll customers generally pay a flat service fee, as well as an additional fee for each worker enrolled. Thus, Paychex likes to see businesses hiring new employees. And after a soft February report, the labor market is roaring once again.
