In 2009, Pfizer was fined 2.3 billion for illegally promoting four drugs including Bextra. At the time the market cap was around 120B. And GlaxoSmithKline was around 110B when fined $3B in 2012. US biotech candidates over 120B in market cap are JNJ, LLY, ABBV, MRK, PFE, TMO, BMY and AMGN.

I think you will find many of it these days due to the increased Funds Rate.
PRDGX is a growth oriented fund. I will look for its contituents see if I spot some risky players.
From what I can tell these <--- (bank stocks) do not have questionable risk in terms of fundamentals, beta, alpha. You have more exposure in volatility of others tech stocks than what I identified with this mf. OK to unload.
- bartender. maxed my ROTH IRA for the first time in my life last year and intend to again this year. i have 1/2 in SWPPX, 1/4 SCHD, and probably 1/4 in APPL, JNJ, ABBV, O, KO, and KR. I’m down for the year overall but not by much. Am I…doing this right?
Debt free and these are retirement funds. No 401k (restaurant industry). I also have a HYSA i deposit into equally as my ROTH IRA each week and 2 rollover traditional IRA’s but only around 8k in target date funds and VOO.
Another vote for DCA. Each week or month invest a portion. The market could certainly find a new bottom this year, but it very well may not.
Alternatively, you could wait for favorite stocks to have a temporary dip. For example, ABBV dropped recently and would have been a great buy and may still be.
I like abbv, mo, vz, tap. I figure if there is a recession, I want things that people are addicted to (tobacco and alcohol) or have to buy (phone service, medical).
Lots of ABT/ABBV shares and increasing my position.
Coca Cola Verizion Schd jepi Bti Mo bns bmo apple abbv Jpm trow brkb
Thankyou BA and ABBV
Already mentioned previously: WM, ULTA, ASML. COST, LVMH
I wouldn't mind a dip in ABBV
JPOW mentioned something about jacking up interest rates more…so buying treasury bonds and t bills for the yield became more appealing than buying dividend kings like ABBV or JNJ. The fed wants a outright recession because they feel that is the only way to bring inflation down and will do whatever it takes to make that happen.
What do you think of healthcare ETFs like XLV and VHT?
UNH and JNJ are the largest holdings. Is it more or less common for people to just go ETF for healthcare?
I'd like to invest, JNJ, UNH, ABBV, CVS, LLY, MDT, among others look promising, so an ETF may be a better option?
I like a bit of a mixture.. SCHD can spin off a bit more income if you would like passive income. JEPI is a pure income play, VSTAX, VTI would be more principal growth than income..
I had a few goals when I started on my journey 4 years ago... Get out of being a landlord (successfully completed jan 2020) , and replace that income stream with something that is less hassle. My best year owning the homes was around 100K net, last year we did 76K with dividends. I hold JEPI (less than 3%) of my holdings beyond that I mostly hold individual shares in companies that pay between 2.5-4% and raise dividends at least on average 6% a year. I keep a few hundred K in SCHD as sort of an augmented savings account.
Since most of mine is taxable i try to hold companies that pay qualified dividends.
If i was going to set someone up for a fully hands off portfolio i'd probably do something along the lines of
15% quality growing businesses with low debt and big moats. My largest holdings are order largest to smallest :
AVGO, HD, JPM, BX, TXN, SBUX, BLK, ABBV, UPS, MRK, LOW, AMGN, APD, LMT, MSFT, ITW, TD, ORI, PLD, PEP, CMI, CB, AMAT, TXRH, CME, COST, UNP, MCHP, WM, LIN
My 2 cents :
If you have a mortgage, put some in your mortgage - you can’t go wrong. Will lower your repayments too
Buy blue chip shares and get some dividends. High yield stocks would be good, like chevron, abbv is fine - that’s what I hold
Start a passion project - hard to give advice here since it’s gotta be your passion.
Go to a startup or crowdfunding site and invest in startups you like (once you’ve done your DD)
WM, TRTN, CB, MA, V, BAC, UNH, COST, HD, ICE, ULTA, ABBV, LLY are worth looking at IMO.
I appreciate your feedback. I’m already invested in AAPL, AMZN, MSFT, O, MO, ABBV, ARC and XOM. Considering a utility now because of an economics podcast I listened to today that said utilities are somewhat recession proof. I’m looking at CWCO as a utility. Also thinking about adding GD due to whats been going on with Taiwan.
I haven’t looked at mutual funds yet and I’m not clear what the difference between an M Fund and an ETF is.
Again, thanks for responding.

Trading Thesis - Why These Crayons Taste Better
Technical analysis and indicator based trading tend to use past price performance in order to predict important price levels today.
This analysis is based on the current option open interest. With that option open interest, it calculates portfolio-level greeks--notably Delta and Gamma. More importantly, once the portfolio level greeks are established, I can now simulate the change in greeks at different price points. From there, I can find the price levels where portfolio-level gamma is the highest, and the portfolio-level delta is close to 0.
For some tickers, the underlying price reacts strongly off of delta neutral, gamma max, and sometimes both.
It's the reaction off of these price levels in the past that is being used to drive trading signals.
The plays and target entry prices given are calculated using a binomial option pricing model that reflect the expected size and duration of the reaction from gamma max or delta neutral. A lot of these plays are profitable by underlying moves in stock. The best plays benefit from the directional move as well as the increase in IV.
Notes - Something to give you a new wrinkle
- If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Something changed between the time these plays were generated and market open.
- Look to sell half your position on a double, and freeroll the rest to exit at your discretion.
- I tend to risk up to 1% of my total capital on any trades I take. If my conviction is lower, I'll only allocate 0.5% or even 0.25% of my capital to the trade, and dollar cost average in.
- The trades were calculated before market open, and so are based on information up to yesterday. Keep that in mind when deciding to enter well after the fact. New price movement may invalidate the original thesis.
FAQ - Because others have already asked.
- These plays are mostly puts. Are you a gay bear?
- No. It so happens that the companies have had some recent run-up which implies they are overextended. These trades are primarily some form of mean-reversion either toward or away from an important price level.
- Are you entering all these plays?
- No. There have been a dearth of plays in the WSB morning talks, and so I opened up my bag of tools slightly wider to point out more plays with a probable edge to help lead apes to more gain porn. Go through this curated list of plays, pick the ones you like based on whatever additional analysis you use, and get that gain porn.
- You mentioned a new play on the same ticker in the past. What does that mean?
- The new play should replace the old play. The old play is likely now invalid and if you haven't entered in, don't chase the price. Remember that a new day's worth of data has been produced and the newer play reflects that data, the older play does not.
- Where are the crayons? I only see words.
- Click the links above.
- Have you back-tested this?
- Yes. Results show a moderate Sharpe Ratio (1.7), with an expected win rate of 63% of trades (7% margin of error)
- What is the historical performance?
- The realized Sharpe Ratio is 1.88 with a 66% win rate. Based on the trade performance so far, there is a 95% chance the expected win rate will be between 60% and 78%. (Stats as of 2023-01-31)
Just depends on what moves down and how much. I like QCOM and AMD. Being retired if some dividend stocks get hammered I would add. I like ABBV at $130. If SPG fell to below $100. I like UBER long term and would love to add below $27. I own PERI and it is a small cap growth digital ad company that I own at $20. Sb near $40. I have 3,200 shares but if it tanks to $25 I probably add 800-1,800. Depends on other valuations and convictions. I sold puts on AEHR today at $25 strike. Dividend I would add to my ARCC below their nav. I want to start a position in ORCC ( these are for purely cashflow as approx 90% profits are passed to shareholders so capital appreciation is minimal). I like PSX below $90, but that is dependent on oil spread and subject to change. Most of the above is stuff I already own. I like NVDA as a company but not at these prices even with todays earnings. I like ON, but have to see what price I would be good owning at. I got in INMD at $33.3 1/11 and out at $39.5 on 2/15. I sold $30 puts expire May on that one as it sits at $36.4 today. I like C as it is well below tangible book value and a nice dividend. Market deterioration could take it below $45 which to me is a long term steal. It is in transition so have to be patient if entering a position. I love ATKR, but that ran away from me before I could get a sizeable position, but up 49%. I own a tenth of what I should and I knew it. BROS is another interesting one that is growing rapidly.
Depending on what you think the market will do etc, you need to do YOUR due diligence and figure out your WHY for buying any stock and price point. Nothing is stagnant though, so you always need to be updating and reviewing your thesis for your conviction in any equity. Just note, the above are my personal thoughts and not recommendations as I don’t know your personal financial position and/or risk tolerances
What stocks do you like?
On year three of FIRE. I pull from my taxable, obviously. A bit from fixed income, a bit from the dividends, and the rest from strategic stock sales based on cost basis, how the stock is doing and where I feel the stock may be headed compared to my other taxable holding. I pull the whole year out at once and dump it into a HYSA paying 3.8%.
(Last month I sold some ABBV, BRKB and MA for my 2023 spending. all of them held up pretty well last year compared to the overall market.)
After reading some more advice and doing research. I've decided to invest into PG, ABBV, and VTI.
Maybe ET as well
ABBV,NEP, ABR, MRVL all have superior management.
Thanks for your insight. So far I’ve got a 50/50 schd and Jepi split, along with O, XOM, ABBV and MO, and they are all performing well. I’m worried though about when the bottom falls out.
AVGO, NEP, ABBV
Sampling: ABBV, MRK, KMI, O, VICI, PLD, PRU, JPM, PFG, PEP, PNC, RF, SO, DUK, AVGO, TXN, BX and 20+ more. SCHD serves as foundation.
If one is willing to track their stocks a little, adding high-quality stocks to an SP500 ETF can boost returns. I’m talking companies like MA, ORCL, JPM, UNH, WM, MSFT, AMD, MELI, ASML, CB, MRK, ABBV.
Got some abbv puts at the top and I’m up 300% and can’t sell
AMGN oversold AF. With ABBV beating earnings I think it’s due for a rally. Definitely trying to catch a falling knife though, but could be a 5 bagger
Position: 2/17 $245c’s for $1.1
Calls on ABBV
You are right on target. Like me you just got in a little early. I was about a week ago as well. All indicators were in agreement. However, I am learning to be more patient now, like wait for the signal but then also wait for the CMO (Chande Momentum Oscillator) to come back out of the over/under status. That will help from getting in/out too early like my trademark move almost every time. Fomo. Even though I also included MacD it is almost too late in the game. But if the signal line is under the histogram I'm good. CVS is an expensive retail chain. However I think it's subsidiary stuff is making the money. We stopped shopping CVS because the prices are just out of line. However, for a swing trader, I'm not worried about its reputation or model. Most of the consumer staples went south last week. In defense mode, when there is nowhere else to put the tech money, CVS, K, GIS, ABBV (maybe PFE) will be good for the next few weeks.
Excited for ABBV

52 yo with at least a 15 year time horizon before needing to start touching anything. Several accounts across me and my spouse, some tax advantaged, some not, some managed, some self-managed. Largely buy and hold. And hold and hold. And buy. Had a wee bit of a diversification scare in the late 90's which may have left a lasting impression.

What’s going on with healthcare today?
UNH, CVS, LLY, ABBV all 3-5% down? Any news ?
You'll be fine. Just don't look at those fuckers till after 2/17. Think of it like a 2 wk investment. I've kicked my ass plenty of times and sold on emotions too soon in the past. Your stuck in the trade for a few. I did the same thing with Abbv and JPM last October. That trade took a whole month of trading outta my plan just to realize a breakeven. Sold even a week before they started printing. 400 on SPY is a great spot for March 10. Hell it might be a great spot by 2/17. I have some bets I started late on 2/1 today on the VIX that expire 2/17.
ABBV calls 🚀
happy cake day you stud muffin
Anyone in ABBV?
If I were starting and wanted to be semi-conservative (but don't too conservative since I'm nowhere near retirement), I would start with SPY, a little QQQ, and some, to quote Buffett, "durable" companies with a good chance of beating the market like V, MA, CB, JPM, BAC, PG, WM, MSFT, CSCO, ASML, AMD, ADBE, MRK, NOW, and ABBV.
Imo this will likely end up being a nothing-burger and their financials are likely just fine (after all - they sell to the government as well so I'd hope they did their DD!).
This law firm is suing a huge list of companies (including ABBV, CSCO, INTU..). But it was something that came up this week so wanted to share with the community!
You don't really need to hold abbv and apple separate from your other holdings schd is 2 percent abbv I beleive and vti is 5 percent apple so your at 10 percent of your money in abbvie
Don't think their new political climate. The abuse has been going on for decades.
And the industry is richer than ever.
FD: I up on ABBV more than 250%, so it been good for me especially the massive dividend. But doesn't mean I agree with industry practices.
I will sell if US ever gets its act together vs the industry
I hodled ABBV from $60. Wish I had put another 350k in at $108. I poorly chose other stuff.
I am in the right place though.
Because I’ve been long ABBV common shares in my portfolio since 2010
Stock prices drop on bad NEWS.
The end of Humira patents I early 2023 is not news at all.
It's been well known and discussed for years, so the effects have been baked into analysts' earnings expectations for years.
The company has a good product line-up and pipeline as their management has been forewarned that Humira won't go on forever.
On the contrary, I read that AbbVie might actually cling on to part of their Humira business with longer running patents indirectly connected with the drug.
Disclaimer: I bought the stock after it was beaten down on announcing the Allergan takeover, so I'm long ABBV. It's done very well since then - and if I'd been worried about the long known impending fizzling of Humira profits, I would have sold.
Puts. XOM APA CVX XLE.
(Ignore the ABBV — leftover from a huge gain on puts from last month)
ABBV APPl MEG OSK
Just bought ABBV
Sell short $ABBV
I normally DCA a bit into JNJ, PEP and PG most months. I've got a good size allocation of KO, so I'm not buying more until it's P/E is less than MSFT and AAPL's... If ABBV falls a bit more, I'll start to bite. IMO, it's not a great time to buy much of anything. Earnings compression hasn't hit the masses yet. Earnings haven't been great across the board during the current earning season. It's prob going to get worse as there are a lot of negative signs out there like lay offs and knee capped earnings guidance.
If we see some steep drops in the next 4-6 months, I'll deploy more cash. Right now, I'm comfortable putting the same amount in the market as I normally do.
I think I could do it, but don't think:
- I'd do it consistently. IME with the personal part of my portfolio, I either spectacularly beat the S&P (i.e. last year because my largest holdings were energy and $ABBV instead of unprofitable tech) or miserably fail (the year before because I was underweight unprofitable tech lmao). I'm a semi-efficient markets kind of guy who thinks there are always opportunities to beat the market in a given year due to irrational fear or exuberance, but finding those year after year is really difficult. Whenever I look at an investment, I try to deduce what the market is fearing and then try to pick up data points to show why the growth that's priced in is understated. Simple to do in theory, very, very, very difficult to do in practice
- It's worth the time and effort vs putting 90% of my money in $VOO or $VT and focusing on building my career/enjoying life
- The risk of underperforming for long periods of time, especially when that time could have also been "reinvested" into my personal growth.
The GOP healthcare plan would have gotten so many people out of poverty. I mean they'd be dead of course, but at least they wouldn't be poor anymore 🤷♂️
calls on PFE, ABBV, JNJ
Go look at ABBV psychotics division LOL
If I had to pick between those three I'd say ABBV, but I'd rather TMO than any of the three.
If you are to pick just 1 healthcare stock, which of these: ABBV, CSV, or JNJ?
ABBV puts getting annihilated today
140 puts on $ABBV
Microsoft, Apple, Pfizer, Merck, ABBV.
Both Mr. Softy an Apple are in their lower range. My portfolio is almost 1/2 drugs and will be for a while yet.
I thought some of them were higher, but I’m also a little exhausted as I traveled 8 hours yesterday.
You could always just buy one share of Costco, HD, and ABBV and start a position and then if it goes down leverage down as it will come back up.
GIS… understandable on not liking. It’s more of a very defensive play of mine. Why not Nike…. Really curious on that one?
Ford… fuck no. Hahaha. I think long term they will prevail as they are focusing on profit and also a very low P/E and strong yield and safe. Again very defensive play.
Yeah… coke has a high premium as its best of breed and people will pay up for it.
Yeah, VZ is low low low. That’s why I think it’s attractive now.
I wish you the best on intel, I hope they turn around but I just really don’t have any faith in their management.
I believe in a turnaround in INTC, I know it is a controversial pick. As for SCHD and other ETFs, Im in the EU. In costco, HD, ABBV, I am looking for a buy-in point. As for nike, GIS Im not a fan of. Ford? Fuck no. VZ I have a position, but smaller. Coke I had, but recently sold off, I think a 25+ PE is unjustified for it. JNJ is something I need to look into. Im not familiar with the rest.
I would personally drop a lot of those but that’s just me. The only ones I like or think or solid in my opinion and no offense to your stocks are MSFT, MO, & PFE.
I would 100% drop INTC, I think that company is real real real bad.
Why not look at like KMI, NKE, COSTCO, ABBV, SPY, SCHD, PXD, GIS, KO, HD, PG, DE, JNJ, PG, AXP, F, VZ.
In my personal opinion those are better best of breed companies. But let me know your thoughts? Are you just chasing really high yielding stocks?
Lost 30k on ABBV in 5 days
Hey guys, Im quite new... can you help me with my portfolio for year 2023? Can you tell me what stock out of these are rly good, what stocks should I dump and what stocks Im definitively missing?

I'm looking at jumping in on ABBV shares early this week - and then back out on ex div date - seems like a low risk cash generator
$ABBV, $HBI, $LNG, $GLNG, $MSFT, swing trading $YANG & $DRV
Well, I'm starting my 3rd year of FIRE and for better or worse I w/d my spending for 2023. From my taxable I sold some ABBV, MA and BRKB since they all held up relatively well during the downturn. Also pulled a decent chunk from short term bond and CD holdings. WR is 3.41% before Soc Sec (I'm 55.)
Conservative, but I am being prudent during these important first five years of FIRE.
Will do! Short $APA and $ABBV for now as the screenshots indicate.
You're making me wonder if I should sell my abbv at a 70% profit.
Down 7% this year from all time high. Biggest looser was VZ down about 28% biggest winner is ABBV up about 49%.
I'm 52. This coming year, which I think is going to be flat to a slight gain, is going to be spent buying long term, high quality, dividend stocks for retirement. I used this past year to invest in companies I believe will be big in 10 years and have my fill. My wife's accounts, she's 40, will probably be spent on dividend stocks with growth potential and "established" growth stocks and etfs (read SCHD, ABBV, VOO, et al.)
Oil Stocks earned of decade and at some point they need to drop as they can't make well in recession
$DJI is only 10% away from ATH while $Vix visiting the bottom, not seeing any CEO or insiders buying from 100 large caps stocks or they knows their conditions for next year.
Need to watch few stocks $ABBV, $MRK, $XOM etc For some these are strong stocks but their charts might be telling different story
ABBV - 24,5% / MSFT - 22,7% / CRM - 21,4% / AMZN - 21,2 % / MSCI World ETF - 11,2%
I’m saying those stocks are down that much. I have dividend paying stocks and also sell otm cc’s and otm puts for income. But I’ll wait for you to show me any of the too long term Stocks that aren’t down 30-60% or more. Just for starters here is a list jd top stocks all way down. What’s up?
AMZN FB GOOGL NELX TSLA WM Msft KO* BRKB BRK MO ZTS ABT ABBV MCD LVMH COST
Now do Amazon, google, nvda. Apple. Microsoft, meta, Netflix. PayPal, square, Home Depot. Target. Johnson and johnson, abbv. Visa, Pepsi, coke. All those are sage long term buys and hold but have been destroyed.

Invest some money in dividend stocks like JNJ,MSFT,ABBV, MCD which is dirt cheap
ABBV ATM strangle 1/6
Because, she came out of obscurity, and went on a tremendous tear...
I remember 2020 and 2021 being told "you don't understand growth, these companies have limitless potential"
My boring ass was buying Abbv, MRK, LMT, NOC and honestly they didn't do much in 2021. but over half my portfolio has positions up 30-40% this year while others see 60-70% of theirs wiped.... Eat my ass, speculators!
Doing atstrangle 1/6 on ABBV they have a new drug pending PDUFA by EOY
My largest holdings are still deep deep green. Love old people stocks.

Bears make money, bulls make money...........
I have been investing for over 40 years. I lived through an environment when mortgage rates were 16-18%. I bought stocks on Black Thursday, Monday and day the market cratered. I lived through the Dot.com crash, the S&L crash, the Covid crash, you get the idea.
If you have a plan, stick to it no matter what is happening around you unless of course we are about to have a nuclear war. Markets go up and markets go down, you can make money in both.
I buy on bad news, especially when it isn't think ABBV buys Allergan, the stock dropped like a rock, I bought 600 shares. American Widget reported a sales increase of 23% and profit increase of 18% but the analysts were expecting 29% and 21% so the stock drops $4. That is me scrambling to buy more or some.
Your picks are good ones, I would add small banks which will rise in 2023 and drug companies to the list. Good luck to you.
Companies that pay dividends out perform companies that don’t. You’ll see that the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Total Return Index – made up of stocks in the S&P 500 that have increased their dividends each year for at least 25 years – has outperformed the S&P 500 Index by 1,768 percentage points since 1990.
Dividend Aristocrats have generated average annualized returns of 11.84% versus 9.96% for the S&P 500 overall. That’s roughly 2 percentage points more every year for the last 32 years.
Since 1990, we’ve had four bear markets. The Dividend Aristocrats have outperformed the S&P 500 in all but one of them.
From January 3 to November 17, 2022, the Dividend Aristocrats have outperformed the S&P 500 by 11.83 percentage points. That’s quite a lot over a 318-day period and is the difference between being down 4.7% and being down 16.53%.
I could keep going back to 2008 or even 2000.
- Not all Aristocrats are created equal. My favorites are ABBV up 22.2%. CVX is up nearly 60% since the beginning of the year.
Should have got dividend stocks like ABBV and PFE
Also got lucky with starting last year

The mistake I first made was being to attached to the stock just like a long term investor might be. You need to be totally ok letting them get called away. Rolling isn't always dollar for dollar your taking some kind of loss most of the time. Atleast that was my experience selling CC on ABBV. Now I just let them go and buy back on a downturn..
Before you decide where to invest it you need to decide if this should be for a home or retirement because where you will invest it is very different.
I suggest you earmark it for retirement - you're kinda behind for a 34 year old - but you can double your capital with this event.
When you sell you're not going to owe a lot of tax - 15% of the 15k (92 to 107) gain is only a couple thousand dollars.. and you have 107 thousand dollars to pay it out of. It is also not going to change your tax bracket based on what you've said (whether single or married) you're in the middle of the 22% bracket and remember only the gain is income not the full 107.
Now it's just a matter of how to get it in there. Fill out your IRAs for this year and next in the next 45 days for a start and also crank up your 401k deferral to the max your company will allow. This will severely diminish your paycheck of course, but you just live off the proceeds of the ABBV sale instead of your paycheck until you have exhausted them.
If you get married and pool your assets then your spouse should do the same - max the deferrals and subsidize the paycheck from the ABBV pool.
In 2023 you will have 22.5 x 2 + 6.5 x 2 = 58k of tax advantaged space between the IRAs and 401ks.. it's not all incremental (you are already contributing some!) - but it shouldn't take more than 3 years to get them full of this money.. and it will really help your retirement posture.
Whatever you are currently doing for 401k/IRA is the right investment.. hopefully that's something like VT or VTI/VXUS maybe with a dash of bonds.
If you want to save for a house, then just use a HYSA or CDs
BA BAC EPD HON JNJ CVX CAT UNH BMY ABBV
CVX most heavily weighted Then healthcare divided between the pharma Then industrials BAC just because I wanted to throw a little financials in there
Up on the year y’all take notes 🤭
YES, You nailed it as all industries are very good here and in the best shape ever.
OPIL company mismanagement has been the norm forever not building refineries and TRUMP telling people we are oil independent. ---- OIL---In August 2022 United States' Crude Petroleum exports accounted up to $10.4B and imports accounted up to $18.7B, resulting in a negative trade balance of $8.25B. Between August 2021 and August 2022 the exports of United States Crude Petroleum have increased by $4.1B (64.8%) from $6.32B to $10.4B, while imports increased by $5.97B (47.1%) from $12.7B to $18.7B.
WHY not include Banks? POP, HOme, Depo, Pharma. Has Jamie from JPM ever had 30% margins and operating profits before? Best ever rev and net income from corporations- GREATEST ECONOMY EVER for corporation revenues and NET Profits and most margins. CORPORATE balance sheets are the best ever as they report in 2022. America's industries look great- and very strong- PG- Procter, JNJ-Johnston, HD-Home Depo, CL-Colgate. KMB-Kimberly, MRK -Merk, BMY-Bristol, PEP & KO -pop industry, DG-Dollar General. COST Costco, ABBV-Pharma, SU, SHEL, BP, XOM -oil Industry JPM and the gouging 30% margins and greatest returns /margins ever- WFC and Citi are doing very well also, And YES, Many OIL companies have doubled rev and net.
Look at BSM, ABBV, NWL for divy stocks
Add Abbv if you are going dividend and growth.
My recommendation is to lighten up on tech stocks, you have too many. I think T is a dog right now, it's somewhat volatile so see if you can sell on an uptick. Diversify with some stocks like pharmaceuticals (ABBV), tobacco (MO or PM), and energy (XOM or CVX). These tend to show good long-term growth with a strong dividend record.
