3 "Strong Buy" Dividend Stocks That Pay Over 9%
You can't always rely on share price appreciation to guarantee a profitable portfolio. Savvy investors know this, and always seek ways to ensure their income stream. Dividends are common, and popular, way to do this, but bring with them some important questions: Is the dividend reliable - does the company pay it out regularly, in full? Does it yield enough to make the investment worthwhile?These are some of the factors that Wall Street's analysts weigh when they review dividend stocks. And fortunately, they can answer them in positive terms for investors. For while the market conditions aren't really signaling defensive buying - the S&P 500 has been holding above 3,200 since mid-July, and the NASDAQ has been setting new record highs since June - keeping a reserve of defensive stocks is always a sound strategy to harden your portfolio against the unexpected.With this in mind, we've turned to TipRanks database to find three "Strong Buy" dividend stocks with yields starting at 9%, high by any standard, and with potential upsides starting at 14%. These are stocks that will both grow the portfolio and provide a steady income.Hercules Capital (HTGC)We'll start in venture capital, the engine of so much economic activity.

Apple denies reported interest in TikTok acquisition
Apple Inc. has reportedly denied interest in acquiring TikTok after an Axios story from earlier Tuesday said that Apple was looking into a potential deal for the social-media app given that the U.S. has threatened to ban it from the U.S. due to national security concerns about Chinese parent company ByteDance. An Apple spokesperson told Axios following that report that the company hasn't held discussions about buying TikTok and isn't interested in a deal. Apple didn't immediately respond to a MarketWatch request for comment. Microsoft Corp. is considered to be the most logical bidder for TikTok and the company confirmed over the weekend that it would continue discussions about a possible deal. Apple shares are up 0.6% in Tuesday trading, while Microsoft shares are down 2.7%. Apple's stock has added 50% over the past three months, compared with an 18% rise for Microsoft's and a 13% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average , of which both Apple and Microsoft are components.

AMD stock surges to new record on road to $100 billion market cap
Advanced Micro Devices Inc. soared to fresh records Tuesday after one analyst hiked his price target on the chip company. AMD shares spent Tuesday carving out new intraday records, and were last up 8.5% at $84.30, on track for a new closing record. The stock last closed at a record $78.20 on July 30, fresh from AMD's strong earnings and indications that the company's share gain from Intel Corp. was quickening. At current levels, AMD is about $1 billion shy of breaking a $100 billion market cap. In a Tuesday note, Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis, who has a buy rating on AMD, raised his price target on AMD to $95 from $86. Lipacis said the lead of AMD, and its chip fabricator Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. , over Intel appeared "systemic." Lipacis said he expects AMD share gains to accelerate especially in the server market, with an estimated 30% share over the next two to three years, and 50% in four to five years. In its recent earnings call, AMD said it had just reached 10% share of the server market. Of the 36 analysts who cover AMD, 15 have overweight or buy ratings, 18 have hold ratings, and three have sell ratings, with an average price target of $75.76, according to FactSet data.

Kodak's stock tumbles again, after disclosure that investors have converted debt into nearly 30 million common shares
Shares of Eastman Kodak Co. were down 24% in afternoon trading Monday, putting them on track for a third straight double-digit percentage decline, after the digital printing and film company, which is getting into the pharmaceutical-ingredients business, disclosed that holders of convertible notes were exercising their right to convert those notes into common stock. The stock has now dropped 50% since skyrocketing sixteenfold in three days to $33.20 on July 29, after the Trump administration announced on July 28 that Kodak had received a $765 million loan as part of a Defense Production Act directive to loosen the reliance on foreign sources for pharmaceutical ingredients. In an 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday, Kodak said the holders of the 5.00% convertible notes due 2021, which were issued in May 2019, are converted a total of $95 million of the notes into 29.9 million shares of Kodak common stock, on July 29. That would imply a value of $3.175 per converted share, while the stock was currently trading at $16.58. On July 27, Kodak granted Chief Executive James Continenza options to buy Kodak stock at various strike prices, which are now all in the money, to "protect" him from dilution of his share holdings, in case the convertible debt issued in May 2019 were converted into stock. Kodak's stock has now rallied nearly fourfold (up 256.6%) year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 2.0%.
