We Remain Bullish; Is This 1995 – The Beginning of a Huge Stock Market Run?
Image: Large cap growth stocks have trounced the performance of the S&P 500, REITs, and bonds since the beginning of 2023. We expect continued outperformance in this area of the market. We’re now roughly four years past the depths of the COVID-19 meltdown, where equities collapsed in February and March of 2020. As the markets began to recover through 2020, our long-term conviction in equities only grew stronger. We think the biggest risk for long-term investors remains staying out of the market on the basis of what could be considered stretched valuation multiples. As we outlined heavily in the book Value Trap, valuation multiples hardly tell the complete story about a company and often omit key long-term earnings growth, cash flow dynamics, and balance sheet health considerations. We remain bullish on equities for the long haul, and we think the next couple years will be incredibly strong. Our best ideas can be found in the Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio, Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio, High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio, ESG Newsletter portfolio, and via the Exclusive publication as well as options idea generation.

Dividend Growth Idea Home Depot Hikes Payout Nearly 8%!
Image: Home Depot is working through some soft sales trends following robust home improvement spending during the pandemic, but the company’s free cash flow generation remains top notch. On February 20, Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio holding Home Depot reported mixed fourth quarter results that showed revenue pressure in the period, but the company still beat expectations on both the top and bottom lines. We’re huge fans of Home Depot’s resilience through the ups and downs of the real estate market, and the company’s pace of dividend growth remains solid. Our fair value estimate of Home Depot stands at $369 per share, modestly higher than where it is trading, and the company has a strong 1.4x Dividend Cushion ratio, which speaks to future dividend expansion.
