One great way to make passive income is to invest in dividend stocks. Here's why they selected AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV), Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD), and Merck (NYSE: MRK). Keith Speights (AbbVie): Only the most elite dividend stocks become Dividend Kings.
The FDA approves expanded use of AbbVie's (ABBV) Skyrizi, Merck's (MRK) Vaxneuvance vaccine and Novartis's (NVS) cancer combination drugs, Tafinlar (dabrafenib) + Mekinist (trametinib).
As prices go down, yields go up, and that dynamic has made both Target (NYSE: TGT) and AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) excellent choices for bargain-hunters searching for quality companies with yields well above the current 1.7% average of S&P 500 index stocks. For quite some time, Target was the retail stock that could do no wrong. The company repeatedly posted revenue growth and strong profitability, even through the pandemic, and there was little indication of serious trouble.
