Cabot Dividend Investor 419

April 24, 2019

There is tremendous growth ahead for technology. There will be incredible opportunities to invest. While you probably don’t associate technology stocks with a dividend newsletter, things are changing. In this issue I identify a technological behemoth that is now a blue chip dividend payer. Its products are so widely used that owning the stock provides a great way to play the technology revolution in general and gain exposure to the explosive growth.

I launched Cabot Dividend Investor five years ago to help investors like you build a balanced portfolio of reliable dividend-paying stocks. It’s been a great journey, and I hope you’ve learned a lot and have made some money.
Cabot Dividend Investor isn’t going anywhere, but it’s time for me to move on. I’m excited to pursue new opportunities in the New Year, and I’ll be leaving you in great hands. Tom Hutchinson, the new Chief Analyst of Cabot Dividend Investor, will introduce himself in this month’s issue, with his take on the market and an exciting new stock pick.
But before I turn everything over to Tom, I’m going to wrap up a few loose ends in the portfolio—some things have unraveled a bit over the past month.

In today’s issue, I’m adding one more utility to the Safe Income tier. The Fed wants to keep the conversation about rate hikes going—four Fed members are giving speeches this week, including Chair Jerome Powell later today—but markets believe that rates are rapidly approaching “neutral.” In a speech on Tuesday, Vice Chair Richard Clarida said the Fed needs to be even more data dependent as the benchmark rate nears its “ultimate destination,” rather than committing to a certain number of rate hikes.
Elsewhere, our Safe Income stocks are all doing well, and most of our Dividend Growth and High Yield holdings are looking healthy as well. And at the end of today’s issue, I’ve provided a watch list of some stocks on my radar for addition to the portfolio.

October has been a challenging month for many investors, but dividend stocks and income investments have been a rare safe haven. After a few sells last week, our portfolio is looking ready for whatever November throws at us. So far, investors are optimistic about turning the calendar page: the market managed to rally yesterday and then opened higher today.
However, we’re not out of the woods yet, and as always, I recommend sticking with what’s working. That’s why today I’m adding another conservative consumer staples stock to the Safe Income tier, which I expect to provide us with a secure income stream for a long time.
Read the whole issue for the story, plus earnings updates on many of our holdings, and a look into why REITs have been doing so well recently.

The market continues to make progress, despite the dramatic headlines gracing the front page every day (and popping up online throughout the day). Today I’m adding a well-known restaurant stock to the Dividend Growth tier of our portfolio, to take advantage of rising consumer spending and the strong American economy. I also have updates on all our stocks, most of which are rated Buy, and at the end of the issue I take a look at the importance of diversification.

The most bullish thing a market can do is hit new highs, and that’s what we’ve seen from this market in recent days, with most indexes and stocks participating on the upside. And with interest rates remaining tame, our dividend stocks have been doing well, too.

All of this is good, though it makes this month’s choice of a featured stock a bit more difficult, as many names are a bit extended to the upside. In the end, I went with a strong stock that gives us leverage to the strong U.S. economy—both the stock and dividend payment are likely to head higher over time.

In today’s letter, I’m adding a consumer staples stock to the Safe Income Tier, positioning the portfolio to take advantage of a possible rebound in the sector. If it doesn’t come to pass, we’ll still be happy to own the stock, a Dividend Aristocrat with near-perfect Dividend Safety and Growth scores.
Elsewhere, I’m selling half of a laggard in the Dividend Growth Tier, and have included earnings expectations for all of our stocks. And at the end of the issue, you’ll find a fresh explanation of a tried-and-true method for boosting your yield.

The market rolled over this week, but it’s too early to say if it’s the start of another correction or just some turbulence. Either way, we’re well prepared, with exposure to a broad range of sectors, including some benefiting from the uncertainty.
