The Five Best Dow Jones Stocks to Buy Now in 2018 - 1 of 6


 
The Five Best Dow Jones Stocks to Buy NowMany of the talking heads and pundits are hating on the Dow 30 and are decrying them as overvalued and having weak growth prospects. You shouldn't pay attention to the noise though. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is still a great place to find solid stocks with sizable dividends. The thirty stocks that make up the Dow Jones are leaders in their own industries and have significant competitive moats, large cash flow and major profits.

When buying Dow Jones stocks, you are really buying the 30-largest players in the American economy. There's a reason that nearly $24 billion dollars has been invested in the Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA). The index remains a strong collection of blue-chip stocks that pay solid dividends and aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

Sure, there are a few "Dogs of the Dow" that you might want to avoid. General Electric (NYSE:GE) recently cut its dividend and is in desperate need of a turnaround to remain relevant. Intel has also recently come out of favor after it was discovered that there are major security vulnerabilities in all of its modern processors. You might want to avoid those two specific stocks, but there are many solid companies in the Dow worth looking at.

Here are the five best Dow Jones stocks to buy this year.
