New York, New York (PressExposure) January 19, 2012 -- Microsoft Corporation warned that there would be fewer shipments of PCs than expected due to the floods in Thailand hurting suppliers. According to Sasha Cekerevac, contributor to popular financial newsletter Profit Confidential, this could be an excellent buying opportunity to get a great dividend yield and be paid while you wait for shipments to get back to normal.
"This is a one-time hiccup for the computer industry. Investors with patience can benefit," says Cekerevac. He thinks it's a good idea to avoid the hard-drive makers like Western Digital Corporation, which had to reduce production due to factories being hit. Firms like Seagate Technology could be a good choice, as they have benefited from not having facilities in Thailand.
Cekerevac also thinks that adding companies with a good dividend yield is a great long-term strategy. "Any pullback in Microsoft due to a short-term bump in the road could be a buying opportunity, as the company provides an almost three-percent dividend yield."
Another firm Cekerevac highlights in Profit Confidential is Intel Corporation, which has a dividend yield of 3.27%. "In addition to the yield, the company recently announced a deal to get into the smartphone market with its chips," writes Cekerevac.
Intel has signed a multi-year deal with Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc. in which the new smartphones by Motorola will be made with Intel processors. These will be "Android" devices, running the Google Inc. developed software.
"When 10-year treasuries are yielding less than two percent, any pullback in companies with dominant market positions providing a healthy dividend yield should be seen as a great buying opportunity," says Cekerevac.
Profit Confidential, which has been published for over a decade now, has been widely recognized as predicting five major economic events over the past 10 years. In 2002, Profit Confidential started advising its readers to buy gold-related investments when gold traded under $300 an ounce. In 2006, it "begged" its readers to get out of the housing market...before it plunged.
Profit Confidential was among the first (back in late 2006) to predict that the U.S. economy would be in a recession by late 2007. The daily e-letter correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009. And Profit Confidential turned bullish on stocks in March of 2009 and rode the bear market rally from a Dow Jones Industrial Average of 6,440 on March 9, 2009, to 12,876 on May 2, 2011, a gain of 99%.
