3 of the Safest High-Dividend Stocks You Can Buy Today
The real estate investment trust, or REIT, industry is a fantastic place to find safe and reliable high-yield dividend stocks because of their subscription model. So, unlike other companies that have to innovate and market new products, REITs own portfolios of real estate, lease those properties to businesses, and then collect rent. This model is perfectly suited to generating consistent dividends. However, all REITs are not created equal, and that is why you need to focus on the best. Today, I have three of them...

Highest Dividend Stocks - Current Offerings, and Why You May Want to Avoid Them
High-dividend stocks sound like an obvious winner. You get a large dividend payment on a periodic basis that you can choose to take straightaway or roll over into further stock purchases in the company. What's not to like? Stocks that pay the highest dividends are not necessarily the best choice. There is more to the story than just a simple percentage or dividend yield.

The Smart Money’s Top Energy Dividend Stocks
Ever since the August of last year, crude oil has been volatile, mainly in a bad way. The price of Brent and WTI was almost $100 per barrel then, the price of the two grades is around $50 per barrel or less now. Crude has halved because of weak macro economic factors and Saudi Arabia deciding to increase production by 1 million barrels a day. The oversupply in the industry is so great that even the strongest companies have seen their stocks do poorly lately. But as the saying goes, with great risk comes great opportunity, and given the steep declines in the values of many energy stocks, opportunity certainly abounds. Since dividend stocks are generally better bets than most, given the companies’ wider moats, let’s take a closer look at five hedge fund favorites in the energy sector...

However, investors with portfolios that are full of dividend-paying stocks have still been receiving regular infusions of cash, regardless of how the market is performing.
