  • 5 passive income stocks

  • Microsoft, the company that didn't only completely recover from the recent stock market crash

  • but is hitting a record high, with a valuation of 1.5 trillion dollars, it seems like it

  • will be one first companies to cross 2 trillion dollar valuation.

  • But how much your money would worth if you have invested just 1000 dollars in Microsoft

  • IPO. As of 2018, your thousand dollars would have

  • turned to 1.6 million dollars, and in the last two years, the stock price more than

  • doubled, so you would have earned much more than that.

  • When you think about passive income, you probably imagine real estate and that type of income

  • but the stock market isn't just about the price of the stock but also a a way to earn

  • passive income.

  • When you buy a stock, you are literally becoming an owner of that company. One stock isn't

  • going to give that much influence over the company, but nevertheless, the company is

  • obligated to share with you some of its profits. And that is called a dividend.

  • Some companies pay a lot of dividends; others are not that much.

  • In the case of Microsoft, its 2.04 dollars per share or a little over 1.08 percent.

  • If that doesn't seem like a lot of money, let me tell you that some companies don't

  • pay anything like amazon or Facebook.

  • Over many decades, Microsoft has proved itself to be one of the best investments ever. Its

  • revenue has been increasing consequently every year with 125 billion dollars just last year.

  • It is sitting on a cash pile of 136 billion dollars with no signs of slowing down.

  • The company is founded based on innovation. Despite the success of Mac, it's still widely

  • dominating the computer market with Windows being almost on every computer. It even began

  • producing its hardware in recent years.

  • If you know anything about Amazon, you know that the backbone of its success is amazon

  • web services, where amazon provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and its controlling

  • 1/3 of the market. But do you know who is the second biggest player in that market,

  • Yep, you guessed it right, its Microsoft. Although dividend yield isn't hight at Microsoft,

  • it is still here, and the company is growing at an unprecedented speed. I won't surprise

  • if it hits a 2 trillion dollar valuation in the next 2 to 3 years.

  • So if you want a super-safe investment that's growing tremendously and pays constant dividends,

  • you should be looking at Microsoft.

  • 2. The second on our list is, Johnson & Johnson

  • You are definitely familiar with this company, in fact, it's one of the oldest companies

  • out there. It's a huge medical business with multiple companies under its wing. Its products

  • are on the shelves of every country all around the world.

  • The stock price hasn't been growing as some of the tech companies out there but its the

  • king of dividends. For over 57 years in a row now, it has been

  • increasing its dividends and has been one of the safest investments you could make.

  • Annually, they pay a dividend of 4.04 dollars per stock, which is a dividend yield of 2.75

  • percent. That's more than what some of the largest corporations pay.

  • I know that some of you aren't impressed because that barely beats inflation. However, you

  • have to consider that the safer the investment, the lower the returns are. Its also working

  • on creating a vaccine for the current pandemic, if it succeeds, its stock price might soar

  • as well. In the case of Johnson & Johnson, historically

  • speaking, for six decades, it hasn't just been paying dividends but kept increasing

  • them, so if you are leaning on investing long term, Johnson and Johnson might be one of

  • the safest passive income stocks.

  • 3. The third on our list is also a tech company.

  • It's a company that manufactures your favorite smartphone, yes I am talking Apple.

  • This company doesn't need an introduction, you probably know a lot about it. But let's

  • take a look at its dividend yield. Currently, its a little lower than 1 percent (0.98) or

  • 3.28 dollars per stock as of may 2020. Don't be scared by the fact that it has such

  • a low dividend yield. The problem is that the stock price has been

  • increasing so fast that you have to take a look at the context.

  • For the last decade, Apple had a 2 percent yield, sometimes it was higher, other times,

  • it was lower, but it was around 2 percent. And the company is in such great shape that,

  • even after losing around 30 percent of its value due to the pandemic, its back and is

  • hitting a new record high. Since the invention of the iPhone, the company's

  • revenue kept increasing year after year. Even though the smartphone industry has stopped

  • growing in recent years since it has reached its limits, the company still managed to keep

  • its revenue at 260 billion dollars last year. The company is focused now on taking over

  • the budget phone sector with the introduction of iPhone SE. Of course, a 400 dollar is still

  • expensive, but Apple holds a brand name that people around the world value and are ready

  • to pay the extra, even if its a budget phone.

  • The pandemic illustrated to us that its one of the safest companies in the world, and

  • nothing would stop it from growing. Even though it might be paying a dividend

  • of just 2 percent, you can be confident that on the other side, the stock price is also

  • increasing, making you wealthier.

  • 4. The next on our list is lowe.

  • An American retail company specializing in home improvement. The company operates a chain

  • of retail stores in the United States and Canada. As of November 2018, Lowe and its

  • related businesses operate 2,015 home improvement and hardware stores in North America. It's

  • the second-largest chain in the U.S. Founded in 1921, it has been growing since

  • then. If you take a look at the stock price, you realize that in the last 5 years, the

  • stock price has doubled. Although it suffered tremendously due to the pandemic, like the

  • companies we mentioned previously, it recovered quickly. It was one of the companies that

  • suffered the most by losing half of its value overnight.

  • Currently, its dividend yield is 1.68 percent or 2.2 dollars per share, which is not bad

  • for such a stable and safe investment.

  • These companies might not seem to have a high rate of return. However, you have to consider

  • the fact that first of all, they are safe compare to the rest of the market, but more

  • importantly, their stock is also growing. For instance, lowes stock in the last 12 months

  • increased by 30 percent. It was also paying a dividend, so you are benefiting from the

  • rise of the stock and also having a passive income flowing into your account.

  • On top of that, you are confident that your invemsnets aren't going anywhere since its

  • a strong comapny, and the current pandemic is the proof.

  • 5. And finally The Home Depot.

  • the largest home improvement retailer in the United States, supplying tools, construction

  • products, and services. It operates many big-box format stores across the United States and

  • its territories of Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands; all ten provinces of Canada; and

  • the 31 states and Federal District of Mexico. Compare to rival Lowe it pays a higher dividend

  • of 6 dollars or 2.34 percent. In the last 5 years, the stock price has increased from

  • 110 dollars to 254 dollars when writing this script.

  • With strong financial statements and 110 billion dollars in revenue last year, the company

  • is looking forward to taking advantage of the digital world. The company has been investing

  • in digital channels with the One Home Depot initiative it announced in December 2017.

  • The dividends of these five companies might not seem impressive, but when we are talking

  • about passive income, you want something safe, something you don't have to look after every

  • single day. There many companies that provide much higher dividend yield, but the stock

  • price can crush overnight, and those high dividends won't make up for the losses of

  • the stock price.

  • That's why this list is made up of the safest companies in the market that pay some dividends

  • and are growing over time.

  • When you buy a stock, it doesn't bring you any tangible value. You just hold it and wait

  • for someone else to offer you a higher price for it, and when you make the sale, then only

  • you profit or lose.

  • However, I want to point out that just because one company pays a dividend doesn't make it

  • a better investment than other companies. If the company would not pay dividends and

  • reinvest that cash back into the company to grow faster, maybe that is a better option.

  • Amazon is a perfect example of that. Until today, The company hasn't paid a dime in dividends.

  • Even after three stock splits, the Amazon stock price is 2647 dollars.

  • Investors clearly made a much bigger return on the stock price than if they would have

  • received dividends.
