Microsoft's stock leads Dow gainers after dividend hike lifts yield above Apple's
Shares of Microsoft Corp. rose 1.3% to pace the premarket gainers among the Dow Jones Industrial Average's components, after the software behemoth announced an 11% dividend hike and approved a $40 billion stock repurchase program. Based on Wednesday's stock closing price of $138.52, the new annual dividend rate of $2.04 raises Microsoft's implied dividend yield to 1.47% from 1.33%, to leapfrog Apple Inc.'s yield of 1.38% into 25th place among the Dow's 30 components. Apple's stock edged up 0.1% ahead of the open. The premarket stock gains indicates Microsoft will stretch its lead as the largest U.S. company by market capitalization, which was $1.06 trillion as of Wednesday's close, above second-place Apple at $1.01 trillion.

5 Stocks You Shouldn't Hold Through the Next Recession
It's easy to predict that a recession will come eventually. They always do. The trick is in the when - and even the most experienced experts take a lot of swings without making contact.

But more strategists and economists are increasing their odds of a forthcoming recession. An August survey by the National Association for Business Economics showed that three of four economists expect a recession by 2021. It could come sooner than that. Also in August, Bank of America analysts said there's a greater-than-30% chance of a recession within 12 months. In a June interview, economist Gary Shilling said, "I think we're probably already in a recession."

There are plenty of potential catalysts. Numerous international central banks are easing their policies to battle slowing economic growth. America's Federal Reserve is no exception - it just announced the second cut in its benchmark interest rate this year. The U.S.-China trade war is exacerbating things, with a salvo of tariffs weighing on consumers here and abroad. This has been reflected in the Treasury yield curve, which has inverted several times in 2019 - a recessionary warning sign.

Don't look to these five stocks for recession protection. Many businesses surely will feel the pinch of an economic pullback. But these five better-known names - while fine companies in some respects - have issues such as high debt levels and struggling growth despite the economic expansion that might make a downturn more painful for them than others.

Ping Identity prices IPO shares at $15
Ping Identity Holding Corp. priced its initial public offering at $15 a share Wednesday evening, valuing the software company at more than $1 billion. Ping said it planned to sell at least 12.5 million shares at that price to raise at least $187.5 million at an initial valuation of about $1.16 billion.

Vista will retain control of the company, holding more than 80% of the shares after the IPO. Underwriters - led by Goldman Sachs, BofA Merrill Lynch, RBC Capital Markets and Citigroup - have access to an additional 1.88 million shares that could drive the totals higher. Ping Identity is expected to begin trading Friday morning on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol PING.
