This Top Income Stock Now Yields 8.7%
In today’s market, finding an income stock is not really that easy. If you go with the most established blue-chip companies, chances are they don’t offer substantial yields. If you turn to the highest-yielding names, then dividend durability could be a concern. There is, however, one company that deserves the attention of investors looking for income stocks, and that’s...

This 10.1% Yielder Is A No-Brainer
U.S. real estate is back. And, especially, U.S. commercial real estate is back. Transaction volumes in the U.S. CRE market have steadily increased since the Great Recession a decade ago, and robust demand from private equity companies is fueling demand for commercial real estate. This company brings a lot to the table for dividend investors. Strong economic fundamentals and diversified loan portfolio imply dividend continuity. The company will see its operating earnings rise in a higher interest rate environment. Higher operating earnings will enhance its dividend coverage stats, tilting the odds in favor of a dividend hike. An investment in the stock yields 10.1 percent...

4 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Bankroll Your Retirement
I don't know about you, but I hate marrying a monthly stream of bills with an income stream that rolls in quarterly. It just doesn't work.

5 Predictable, Cash-Rich Dividend Stocks to Buy
There is a short cut to identifying companies that might be great bargains. The key input is free cash flow (FCF), so start there. The more cash a business generates, the more it’s worth. So we can screen for companies with high FCF as a percentage of market cap — I like to call it free cash flow yield. It works just like dividend yield –simply replace dividend distributions with free cash flows. For the purposes of making picks for my premium newsletter, High-Yield Investing, any FCF yield above 12% automatically gets my attention. That means the company could pay out just half what it pockets and still support a yield three times the market average. No scrounging or borrowing to barely meet payments. This high FCF yield is often the result of a depressed market cap — which is another way of saying the stock is cheap relative to the cash being produced...

Collect an 8% Yield from This High-Dividend Stock
Interest rates are already rising, and the latest U.S. Federal Reserve minutes just hinted at another rate hike in June. Should investors of high-dividend stocks be worried? Well, if a high-dividend stock can keep raising its payout. This High-Dividend Stock Raised Its Payout Every Quarter Since the IPO...
