Shareholders receive a 6.44% dividend. Mizuho has set a $21 price objective, while the consensus target is $19.12. Kinder Morgan stock closed at $16.67 per share on Thursday.

Vornado Realty Trust

Sporting a sizable dividend and offering investors a great inflation-hedging real estate play, this top stock is an incredible buy now. The Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE: VNO) portfolio is concentrated in the nation’s key market New York City, along with additional premier assets in both Chicago and San Francisco.

Last week the company posted strong results and beat the Wall Street estimates for the quarter, as signage and building services income improved from depressed levels in recent quarters. Madison Square Gardens’ 428,000 square foot renewal at the PENN2 redevelopment drove strong leasing spreads. Occupancy and same-store net operating income also improved as well.

Investors receive a 5.07% distribution. The target price on Vornado Realty Trust stock at Truist Securities is $46. The consensus target is $45.55, and shares closed most recently at $42.35 apiece.

These five companies have incredible cash flow and their shares are trading well below their 52-week highs. They all are well positioned for this year and beyond. Plus adding energy, defensive consumer products, real estate and cheap technology makes sense with a market that has been very volatile and could trade back to the downside at a moment’s notice.
