Disney stock gets an upgrade at Guggenheim amid new streaming push
Walt Disney Co.'s plans to get more aggressive with streaming as the pandemic hammers other areas of the media conglomerate helped earn the stock an upgrade from Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris after the company's Tuesday afternoon earnings report. Morris raised his rating on Disney shares to buy from neutral and upped his price target to $140 from $123 after Disney said it would launch a new streaming service overseas under the "Star" brand and release live-action "Mulan" as a direct-to-consumer option on Sept. 4 given disruptions to the traditional theater model due to COVID-19. "Using Disney assets to accelerate a push into DTC will likely be well received by investors," Morris said in his Wednesday morning note to clients. "Bottom line, as we head toward an investor day (in the coming months), we expect the burden of proof to be on why Disney will not be a secular streaming winner rather than justifying the company's ability to deliver on investor expectations." He saw hints in the company's language that may have signaled "a broader willingness to pursue additional opportunities" in streaming down the road, in his view. Disney shares are up 6.6% in premarket trading Wednesday. They've lost 19% so far this year as the S&P 500 has risen 2%.

Regeneron profit beats, expects early results from COVID-19 trials in September
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 a 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. 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.
