On July 19, Caterpillar went ex-dividend with a payout of 86 cents per share compared to its previous payout of 78 cents per share, which was an increase of 10.3%.

Stocks remained range bound as President Trump indicated that he is ready to put tariffs on every Chinese good that comes into the U.S. if need be. This headwind was supported by a strong tailwind in the form of Corporate America’s earnings. Stocks like GE, Microsoft, Honeywell and others reported better profits compared to the same quarter in the previous year. When Trump started tweeting about China and their protectionist trade policies, the market used to care and swung accordingly. Now, the market is rarely influenced by what Trump says against China. Trump’s recent target is the Federal Reserve, as he is not happy with the interest rate hikes. Thankfully, the Federal Reserve and their actions are independent of the White House.

Stocks with a high DARS rating, which is synonymous to a healthy dividend payout ratio, leave ample room for growth, a dividend yield greater than the broader market, a strong stock price momentum and continue to garner investor interest.

Other stocks that moved up the list include Home Depot, which went up from 65 to 63, and Eli Lilly, which has been on fire since it was included in the Best Dividend Stocks List and moved up two spots. General Motors moved up a spot in the list and now sits at the 84th position.
