Investors receive a 4.00% dividend. The Walgreens Boots Alliance stock price target at Baird is $68. The consensus target is just $53.55, and shares ended Wednesday at $47.88.
All five companies pay very dependable dividends and their stocks have reasonable upside to the Wall Street targets. With even moderate appreciation in the share prices, investors should be looking at double-digit total return potential. In a market that is very long in the tooth, that makes a ton of sense now.
