Motley Fool: Big Pharma dividends

Even with the competitor challenges to its top-selling drug Humira, AbbVie’s earnings will increase by an average of close to 5% annually over the next five years, Wall Street analysts expect.

Motley Fool: Disney for the long run

It’s easy to understand why investors would be wary of Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS) right now. The company shut down Disney World and Disneyland because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with millions staying home now, sales will be depressed this year. But Disney is a good bet to rebound eventually, as it’s consistently posted profits over the years, and they’ve increased as well. From a profit of $7.5 billion in fiscal 2014, Disney’s profit rose 47% to $11.1 billion in 2019. Over five years, that’s an average annual growth rate of 8% – impressive for a company with a market value recently near $190 billion. It also has produced positive free cash flow in each of the past 10 years, which will help it absorb a financial hit this year.

Motley Fool: The retail king

Motley Fool: Take a bite of this stock
