A 13% Dividend Yield? Sure, I Can Buy That
This mortgage REIT changed its portfolio with the acquisition of Javelin Mortgage Investment. The use of non-agency RMBS creates a nice hedge against refinancing activity. The 13% yield represents a 10.78% yield on book value, which is still possible in the current interest rate environment. The dividend rates change for mortgage REITs and it is worth noting that for the last several years "change" has largely been in one direction (moving lower). However, having the same number of dividends declared and paid in each quarter makes the tracking easier for analysts...

Buy the Dips: 3 of the Best Dividend Stocks Just Went On Sale
A number of factors have contributed to the Dow 30's decline, including fears of slowing economic growth in emerging markets and the U.S.; geopolitical uncertainty stemming from the Brexit vote; and oil's recent decline back to $40 a barrel. This has a number of large-capitalization stocks in the consumer goods and energy sectors reeling. The market has indiscriminately marked down the value of mediocre businesses and high-quality blue-chip stocks. Here are three such high-quality dividend growth stocks.

How about doing so, while earning a 10%-plus yield, and getting paid every month? We've been hot on the monthly dividends trail in some of our most recent articles, and have come up with a few Canadian stocks which fill the bill, albeit with some currency exchange risk. This stock yields 10.73%, and has paid a steady monthly dividend since December 2012. It will benefit from rising interest rates, and has no Energy exposure. It's selling below book value, and also looks undervalued on a PEG basis...
