High-Dividend Stock Yields 9%, Pays Monthly, Big Revenue Growth, Estimates Rising
With winter upon us, most of us spend a lot more time indoors, pursuing more sedentary activities, such as watching more TV. Imagine if you lived north of the border, in snowy Canada - if you're not into engaging in winter sports, that TV probably starts to occupy even more of your leisure time.

These Are the 5 Perfect Dividend Stocks for Today's Market
The nearly decade-long era of ultra-low interest rates has been kind for dividend-paying stocks. Not only have they often offered payouts that are more robust than the yield on 10-Year Treasuries, but they have also racked up spectacular share price gains. But income-oriented investors now face a changing backdrop. Rising bond yields are now surpassing the payout levels of many dividend producers.
