ABM Industries Inc tops the list

The U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to continue to expand in 2020, but at a slower growth rate of 2.4% compared to 3.2% in 2019 due to the economic disruption of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Consumer spending, which is the largest factor in the GDP equation, is predicted to be the main driver this year, with forecasters projecting it at $13.734 trillion before the first quarter of 2021, marking a 2.4% rise from the $13.41 trillion we had for the final quarter of 2019.

Amid U.S.-listed stocks, investors may want to consider the following three small caps, as

The value of a company's earnings is greatly impacted by the price you pay for the stock

Introduction

In order to understand what the intrinsic value or fair value of a common stock is, you must think like a long-term business owner and not like a stock trader. Additionally, you must think like a business owner that has no intention of selling their business. Put another way, your business generates your livelihood. Therefore, your primary focus and attention is on answering the question: how’s business?

When you own your own business you care about sales, cash flows and ultimately net profits. These are the things that make your business valuable to you simply because these are the

Bob Olstein, chairman and CIO of Olstein Funds, is known as one of the leading experts in corporate disclosure and reporting practices. He wrote an incredible book, The Quality of Earnings, which helped push the use of forensic accounting techniques to identify certain factors in determining a company's future earnings power. (I highly recommend this book.)

Olstein gives his take on "boring" stocks and how much money they can make in free cash flow. This will translate into investment returns over time.

He has been long Zoetis (ZTS) for awhile. And if you remember, Bill Ackman (

As a young investor I followed an aggressive growth strategy. Having narrowly missed the tech bubble bursting, I purchased my first dividend stock on Dec. 11, 2003.

ABM Industries (ABM) traces its beginnings back to 1909, when its founder Morris Rosenberg invested $4.50 in cleaning materials and began cleaning windows for shopkeepers in San Francisco. Over a century later, the company is the largest provider of janitorial services in the U.S. and – through a series of acquisitions – has branched into other service areas to offer a one-stop shop for facilities management. Today ABM provides engineering, janitorial, electrical, parking, landscaping and security services (stand-alone or bundled) to thousands of commercial, residential, and governmental customers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Monthly High Yield Shares Researched By “[url=http://long-term-investments.blogspot.com/]long-term-investments.blogspot.com[/url]”. High yield investing is popular especially just before the next dividend payout. In order to receive the next dividend, investors must take a look at the ex-dividend date. If you own a share or fund before this day, you will receive the next dividend. I screened interesting high yielding stocks going ex-dividend within the next month – October 2012. As result, we found [url=http://long-term-investments.blogspot.de/2012/09/43-top-yielding-stocks-with-ex-dividend.html]43 stocks[/url] with an average dividend yield of 5.19 percent.

In the world of dividend investing, there is always a trade-off between dividend yield and dividend growth. Companies that typically spot above average yields, tend to increase distributions very slowly. Corporations which manage to increase distributions very quickly, typically tend to pay a low current yield. I believe that there is a place for both strategies in a dividend growth investor's portfolio. The high yielders provide a steady stream of distribution income today, which will likely have a hard time keeping up with inflation. The high dividend growth stocks pay low yields today, but provide a great opportunity for high

Earlier this week, Pandora Media (P) became the latest money-losing tech company to go public. Despite previously exhausting all conceivable profit models and stating in its IPO prospectus that it expects “to incur operating losses on an annual basis through at least fiscal 2012,” Pandora still managed to dump 14.7 million shares for $16 apiece, good for a $2.56 billion valuation. After an initial pop, shares have already ducked well below their IPO level, closing Thursday’s session trading at just $13.26. That’s still good for a $2.12 billion market cap, and that’s still far too high. (The more customers the
