  • Crane Is Strengthening its Market Position

    By Awais Iqbal - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: CR, DOV, PCP

    In the rapidly changing world that we live in today, speed is everything. For this very reason, mergers and acquisitions are taking the upward trend while organic growth is focused on at a lower level. Companies are willing to pay a higher cost for ready made businesses in order to save the time it takes to either enter a market or penetrate deeper. Recently, Crane (NYSE: CR) acquired privately held more »

  • Why These Great Industrial Stocks Should Be In Your Portfolio

    By Bob Ciura - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: MMM, DOV, ITW

    America’s biggest industrials will probably never receive much attention from the financial media. Whereas today’s market headlines are reserved for social media stocks and technology start-ups that are sure to lead the investing world into the future, boring old industrials are often left out in the cold.

    However, that doesn’t mean these companies haven’t earned a place in your portfolio. Far from it—in fact, these more »

  • 2 Multi-Industry Names to Buy, 1 to Hold

    By Zain Abbas - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, GGG, HON

    Multi-industry companies are businesses that offer various products that are not limited to one industry. And for simplicity's sake, we can call them conglomerates as well. With the earnings season on a go, many are impatiently waiting for the earnings calls so that they can gauge the health of the end markets of these companies. A weak Europe, slower-than-anticipated growth in China and a recovering US are all that more »

  • These Industrials Keep Cranking Out Dividends

    By Bob Ciura - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, EMR, ITW

    An old stock market adage that I tend to agree with is that when it comes to investing, boring is good. If you go through a list of the best-performing stocks of all time, you’ll find commonalities among many of the featured companies. More often than not, the companies that have richly rewarded shareholders for the longest have come from industries that are less than exciting.

    That’s why more »

    By Bob Ciura - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: MMM, DOV, EMR

    No discussion of industrial stocks with long histories of financial dominance is complete without 3M (NYSE: MMM), formerly known as Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing. This Dow Jones Industrial Average component is the gold standard for dividend stocks.

  • Three Latest Stock Picks by Cramer

    By Cagdas Ozcan - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, MCD, SNTS

    Although I always tend to be on the bullish side, I have to concur that the European economy got a punch in the stomach quite hard for the last couple years as the inconsistency always kept itself alive for years. It did not give a breather to investors, preventing people from gaining a positive outlook and eventually leading them to hopelessness. Therefore, it is even more essential to play defensively more »

  • These Diversified Industrials Are Dividend Legends

    By Bob Ciura - May 17, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, ITW, SWK

    Companies within the industrial sector don’t have exciting businesses. They aren’t likely to be featured in the financial media as the next hot sector or major growth story. At the same time, they provide necessary functions to our society. They manufacture and distribute real, tangible things that build our very infrastructure and contribute heavily to the economy.

    While no one is likely to be excited by these businesses more »

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - May 1, 2013 | Tickers: ADM, BDX, DOV, CB, WAG

    In an effort to educate the 34% of women who know nothing of investing, Yahoo! Finance has a saucy video for the ladies featuring three barechested studs representing stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Why Mr. Stocks is the skinniest, I'm sure I don't know, because how much more appealing would Mr. Stocks be if they mentioned how he bulks up when you add dividends?
