Earn a 7.1% Yield from This Monthly Dividend Stock
Today’s chart highlights a monthly dividend stock that’s currently offering an attractive annual yield of 7.1%. Now, I know what you are thinking. A high dividend yield can be a sign of trouble. Since a company’s dividend yield moves inversely to its share price, a high yield could simply be the byproduct of terrible stock price performance. But that’s not really the case for this monthly dividend stock...

3 Small-Cap Stocks With Sizable Dividends
Investors who love dividend stocks rarely buy small-cap stocks because they’re interested in consistent dividend growth, something smaller companies often can’t provide. In the ninth year of a bull market, the price-to-earnings ratio of the S&P 600 SmallCap Index, like most indexes, has risen dramatically since 2011. That said, it doesn’t mean there aren’t small caps worth owning that pay a sizable dividend and are still growing. Here are my three best ideas of small-cap stocks worth owning...

A 12% Yield, Strong Coverage, Analyst Upgrade This Week, 22% Below Book Value
Distribution yield of 12.50%, with 1.2x coverage over the past four quarters. Stifel just upgraded it from hold to buy, with a much higher price target that jumped by 38%. It's selling at a 22% discount to book value. Management greatly expanded the company's crude oil throughput, starting in Q3 '15. The company has grown and diversified from having a much more balanced customer base, vs. 2008 when 99% of its base were marketers...

A 4.56% Dividend Yield REIT With 160% Coverage
A fat dividend yield rewards intelligent investors. Beware the attack of the stupid narrative. FFO is growing rapidly and so is the dividend. I just bought shares. I’m suggesting an initial “buy under” target of $165 and placing the “strong buy under” line at $155. Investors should limit total exposure to any one subsector, especially mall REITs. Digging through mortgage REITs reinforced my skepticism and taught me the importance of taking complex subjects and breaking them into a simpler premise...

Earn a 7.32% High Dividend from This Diversified Business
Rather than wasting time wondering what to do, and missing out on the upside of the markets, I would recommend looking at high dividend-paying stocks. This strategy involves owning shares of a company that pays a portion of its revenue to investors for being part-owners. Regardless of the performance of the stock, there will be a dividend paid out. Also, there is the potential to participate in the upside of the business, which only adds to your bottom line as an investor, through the stock price seeing a capital gain...
