3. @TheMotleyFool: You love 'em, you hate 'em, and they just keep on winning. The Tim Tebows of the stock market: http://mot.ly/uEho3M
Tim Tebow, the quarterback for the Denver Broncos, has a group of supporters, yet the "experts" can't stand him. Regardless of controversy or opinion, he keeps winning. That sounds pretty similar to three stocks, including Sirius XM Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI. ) Sirius has beaten analyst estimates in three of the past four quarters. But there are plenty of non-believers as well -- the stock was the most shorted stock on the Nasdaq in October.
Find out which other two stocks have Tim Tebow qualities.
4. @TheMotleyFool: The Day The Music Died (Or, More Accurately, Got Pulled From Streaming by Labels Because No One Was Buying It). http://mot.ly/uecTWC
STHoldings, a U.K.-based independent record label distributor, pulled its 238 record labels from streaming websites such as Spotify and Napster. And they're not the first ones to do so. With the rise of streaming services, artists are seeing their Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL ) iTunes revenue and overall digital revenues fall.
Read more about how streaming sites are affecting smaller artists and why some distributors are walking away.
When it comes to dividend investing, it's tempting to focus solely on the dividend yield. And its easy to spot lofty yields -- American Capital Agency (Nasdaq: AGNC ) and Invesco Mortgage sport yields of 19.9% and 21.6%, respectively. But instead of chasing high yields in the short term, a lower yield today may be the better option. For example, Lowe's (NYSE: LOW ) and Walgreen (NYSE: WAG ) have seen their yields increase from a falling stock price.
