Stock Hotlist: Three Picks for the Week Ahead

Picking the wrong stocks can decimate your portfolio.

They’re pure portfolio poison.  

But the right stocks…

If you pick the right stocks, you could find yourself jumping for joy on top of an enormous pile of cash.

With over 4000 tickers to choose from, finding the right stock at the right time can prove to be nearly impossible… 

Unless you’re spending hours each day combing the markets and researching companies.  

That’s why we’ve done the legwork for you.  

We sort through thousands of stock ideas and whittle them down to a few top choices that are primed for solid price action in the coming days, weeks and months.  

This week, we’ve narrowed it down to three stocks that could be getting significant attention in the near future…

Chevron (CVX)

Thanks to its smart $53 billion purchase of Hess Corp., Chevron’s on a growth spurt. And guess what? They’ve got John Hess, the head honcho from Hess, joining their board once the ink dries. It’s like a match made in oil heaven – both big players in oil and natural gas with assets that gel well together.

Now, let’s talk black gold. The recent Middle East tensions have crude prices bouncing back, now dancing above $90 a barrel. Remember, Chevron hit a jackpot in 2022 when oil peaked at $122. And here’s the sweet spot – CVX stock is 11% cheaper YTD, trading at a humble less than 10 times future earnings with a near 4% dividend yield. Looks like a ripe pick in the oil patch, right?

 Kimberly-Clark (KMB)

This consumer staple has been a dividend darling, upping dividends for 51 years straight. Now, it’s flaunting a 3.97% dividend yield to keep your portfolio snug.

KMB’s recent performance? A series of home runs with three straight quarters beating the street. They’ve even jazzed up their fiscal outlook, eyeing a 10-14% bump in adjusted EPS and 3-5% organic growth. Plus, with a nod from Barron’s and Ethisphere for being a sustainable and ethical champ, KMB’s not just a comfy pick, but a conscious one too.

In a market full of stormy weather, KMB might just be the cozy dividend blanket your portfolio needs. It’s a steady player in the consumer goods field, making it a snug fit for those looking to play it safe while enjoying some consistent returns.

Cheniere Energy Partners (CQP)

Cheniere Energy Partners, a notable player in the bustling energy sector. Amid the spotlight on renewables and EVs, this LNG giant holds firm, boasting a robust Gulf Coast network.

Cheniere isn’t just flexing its infrastructure muscle. It’s rewarding shareholders with a steady $1.03 per share quarterly dividend, currently yielding a solid 7.60%. It’s an ongoing dividend growth story spanning six years.

Even with sales taking a hit, the financials are resilient. Net income surged by 31%, with free cash flow margins up a remarkable 20% YOY. Cheniere is more than weathering the storm, showcasing the enduring vigor of the LNG sector.
