    Amphenol (NYSE:APH) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Amphenol is benefiting from its end-market strength. As evident from fourth-quarter results, revenues are being driven by strong organic growth across mobile devices, military, IT and data communications, mobile networks, commercial air and broadband. Moreover, continuing focus on geographic and market diversification has enabled Amphenol to extend its presence into new customers and new applications. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, management expects first quarter sales to be negatively impacted by global economic uncertainties related to trade policy and weakness in the mobile devices end market. The geopolitical uncertainty particularly related to the U.S.-China relationship remains a major headwind.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    If you are looking for a dividend stock, using a 3% yield hurdle is a pretty low bar. There are a lot of companies that offer that level of yield without needing to take on huge risks. That said, if you’re willing to do a little digging, you can do better than that without taking on material extra risk. Three stocks yielding way more than 3% that are worth a deep dive right now are integrated energy Goliath ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), diversified midstream major ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE), and food giant General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS).
