    Robust US economic data has stabilised sentiment, but Global growth concerns remain Front and Centre.

    The three items the Fed has continuously underscored are global growth (and related softness in US manufacturing and capex), trade uncertainties and muted inflation pressures are all weak hence the reason why the bond market is ignoring the backwards-looking data. Sure, core CPI surprised but the story is the opposite on the FED PCE favoured inflation indicator where weakness in the PPI points to a PCE deceleration this month. Oil continues to trade-off general risk sentiment and less so off any immediate oil specific supply considerations and precisely the gnawing concerns about the waning global economy, which is singularly driving the global risk-off attitude.

    There's a balance in the dividend space between high yields and dividend sustainability. In the end, it's generally more important to find stocks that can keep paying -- and hopefully increasing -- their dividends than to stretch for high yields that are ephemeral because they are backed by dividends that are likely to get cut. If you want to add a few good dividend names to your portfolio, these three Motley Fool contributors think you'll want to look at biotech Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD), telecom giant Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and consumer products specialist Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG).

The most recent quarterly results actually exceeded management's long-term targets for gross profits, operating expenses, and operating income, but CEO Badri Kothandaraman said he's going to wait a few more quarters before setting new operating targets.

    We Think Covetrus (NASDAQ:CVET) Is Taking Some Risk With Its Debt

    Some say volatility, rather than debt, is the best way to think about risk as an investor, but Warren Buffett famously said that 'Volatility is far from synonymous with risk.' So it might be obvious that you need to consider debt, when you think about how risky any given stock is, because too much debt can sink a company. Debt assists a business until the business has trouble paying it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow.
