Dividend Sensei's Portfolio Update 56: The Smart Way To Win A $1.6-Billion Jackpot


(Source: Imgflip)
Note that due to reader requests, I've decided to break up my weekly portfolio updates into three parts: commentary, economic update, and portfolio summary, stats, and watchlists. This is to avoid excessively long articles and maximize the utility to my readers.
This week's commentary explains why the stock market is likely to rally soon and points out four deeply undervalued high-yield blue chips to buy before it does.
Due to a family function this week there is no economic update.
Introduction First, let me be very clear that this is my personal portfolio tailored to my specific financial situation, risk profile, time horizon, and personality traits. I am not recommending anyone mirror this portfolio. My situation is that I'm about to turn... more

V.F. Corp.: Yield Checkup

My previous investment thesis on V.F. Corp. (VFC) was to buy the brand retailer when the yield surged. The rally in the stock and the corresponding pullback on capital returns by management have the view of the stock less bullish on this dip. The yield checkup isn't as positive as one might have thought, considering the stock dipped from a high of $97 to a low of $77 now.

Great Results V.F. remains a combination of brands where investors have to take the good with the bad. Right now, Vans is on fire and Lee is struggling. The troubling part of the story is that the company wants to spin off the weak jeans brands into a separate company in favor of brands that have historically had big cycles.
Regardless, the company had FQ2 results that... more

Texas Instruments Is A Great Addition To Your Dividend Growth Portfolio

Introduction In my latest update regarding my dividend growth portfolio, I emphasized the fact that I lack exposure to the information technology sector. I am looking for candidates in the sector, and so far, most of them seemed overvalued. Several readers pointed out that I should take another look at Texas Instruments (TXN), as they find it to be attractive now. I have looked at the company last year and found it to be not attractive enough. I stated that I will be looking for an entry price below $90.
My portfolio consists of several companies in the information technology sector. I own Cisco (CSCO), IBM (IBM), Qualcomm (QCOM), Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG) (Nasdaq: GOOGL). If I add shares of Texas Instruments to the portfolio it will be more a company with a... more

This 7.3%-Yielding Consumer Staples Giant Is Now Undervalued By At Least 24%

Introduction As I've already discussed the investment cases of Altria (MO) and British American Tobacco (BTI), I'd like to highlight another major tobacco giant I currently own, namely Imperial Brands (OTCQX:IMBBY) (OTCQX:IMBBF), which is known for its impressive dividend yield of 7.3%. It's definitely on track to become a reliable dividend aristocrat:

In April this year, I was getting quite interested in the UK-based tobacco manufacturer and so far, I have been proven to be right as Imperial's share price has climbed approximately 10%, including dividend distributions.

On the day that Imperial Brands published its half-year results together with the announcement that the launch of Next Generation... more
