Each Sunday I highlight any notable articles that I came across over the past week.

This 11.46% Yield Was Sustained, Though Some Shareholders Don't Know It Yet
This company declared two dividends for the quarter, but they usually only have one. Some of the services reading dividend yields may display inaccurate information. The annual dividend is still $1.20. Based on a recent price of $10.47, the yield is running 11.46%. If the current environment is extended through the fourth quarter, things will look good for the dividend. If the fourth quarter has a flattening yield curve with either asset yields or cost of funds getting hammered, it would put the dividend in jeopardy...

3 Stocks That Could Make You Rich
Most investors who want to become wealthy shouldn't be in a rush to do so. After all, the market's movements are impossible to predict, so it makes sense to construct a portfolio of stocks that wisely balances risk and reward. Doing so properly should allow you to grow your money when times are good and protect you from the downside when the next bear market rears its ugly head. Buying and holding shares of great companies, such as the three I'll describe below, is a proven way to grow your wealth over the long term...

3 Ultra-Safe Dividend Stocks to Own for Recessions
The United States economy has not been in a recession since 2009. Seven years have passed since the last recession. The longest the United States economy has ever avoided a recession is 10 years (March 1991 to March 2001). Of course no one knows exactly when the next recession will occur. But prudent investors will be prepared by investing in recession resistant stocks. These are businesses that provide low prices. They sell the type of goods that consumers don't cut back on -- regardless of the overall economy. In fact, these companies saw rising earnings-per-share during the Great Recession of 2007 to 2009 -- when many businesses were struggling just to keep their doors open...

A Safe 3-Stock Portfolio That Pays 5.9%
This is the point where most new investors get terrified and simply run away. “The market’s too expensive,” they think, and instead put their money in bonds (low yields) or cash (no yields). Or they invest in real estate (which historically underperforms the stock market by a huge margin). Any of these options would be a big mistake. We can juice our income even more and diversify away from stocks by buying junk bonds. One way to do this is to get...

Hop Aboard This Monthly Dividend Stock For An 8% Yield And Strong Growth
In spite of all those SUVs you see lined up around the block before and after school each day, the majority of kids still do what we did, back in the day - schlep to the bus stop and ride the bus to school. Chances are you've blotted out your memories of those daily school bus trips or how about those grand times in mid-February, freezing your buns off, while waiting for the bus to arrive? Ah, the good old days... This stock yields over 8% and pays in US dollars. It has long-term contracts with a 95% renewal rate over the past 18 years. It's the largest independent provider in...
