It’s been an encouraging start to the year for stocks, but another Fed rate hike – and whatever choice words Jerome Powell has to say – could throw the brakes on the rally this week, at least temporarily. To prepare for another potential pullback, today we’re adding some protection in the form of a high-yield dividend payer from the healthcare industry.

And Tom Hutchinson just upgraded it to Buy in Cabot Dividend Investor.
Cabot Stock of the Week is a great way to build a diversified portfolio of the top growth, undervalued, momentum, international, dividend and small-cap stocks selected for current market conditions from seven Cabot investment advisories.
