Dividend Stocks To Watch - Week 37

Hey guys, it is again time for my 3rd article of Dividend stocks to watch in the next week. Well it has been quite a calm week and I still think the stocks I was watching in the 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:

  • Greene King
  • W.W. Grainger
  • Southern Company

Please be aware that all of the stocks mentioned above are already in my portfolio.

Greene King (GNK)

Greene King is british company with the following business segments are Pub Company, Pub Partners, and Brewing and Brands. It the last couple of months the stock price experienced a decent decline.

  • Share Price: 5.56 GBP
  • Dividend: 0.33 GBP
  • Yield: 5.93%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 0.6825 GBP
  • 2018: 0.69 GBP

Performance last three months: -23.73%

W.W. Grainger (GWW)

W.W Grainger is not a typical holding of the dividend investors’ community, but its current price makes it definitely worth to look at.

  • Share Price: 168.95 USD
  • Dividend: 2.36 USD
  • Yield: 3.03%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 10.41 USD
  • 2018: 11.00 USD

Performance last three months: -6.31%

Southern Company (SO)

The Southern Company is as well a stock which can not be found in a lot of portfolios but never the less this utility company delivers stable growth and an excellent dividend

  • Share Price: 50.64 USD
  • Dividend: 2.32 USD
  • Yield: 4.58%

Median Earnings Estimates

  • 2017: 2.97 USD
  • 2018: 3.04 USD

Performance last three months: -1.73%


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 under performed the market but offer at the same a stable financial situation and enough room for future dividend growth. Also 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.

Disclosure: Long: GNK, SO, GWW.
