Dividend Stocks To Watch - Week 36

 It has been quite a calm week and several stocks I was watching 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 

AT&T (Tis one of 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

Verizon (VZis also one the stocks which offer quite a high yield and 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 

General Electric (GEis probably one of the best dividend stocks out there, however, it is going through a restructuring phase and investors fear that stock. Nevertheless, I took advantage of the recent decline and bough 95 shares 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 underperformed the market but offer at the same time a stable financial situation and enough room for future dividend growth. 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.
