3 Attractive Dividend Stocks Whose Dividends Could Double
Good deals on dividend stocks are hard to find in today's market. Valuations have gotten stretched thanks to years of low interest rates, and conservative income investors have moved their money out of the bond market and into stocks in search of better returns. While quality high-yield stocks may be difficult to come by in this kind of environment, there is an alternative: Focus on growth. For long-term investors, attempting to pick growing dividend payers may be a better strategy for outperforming the market. Below are a few dividend growth stocks I think are worth considering...

5 Top REITs Yielding Up to 15.2%
For years, I’ve collected monthly rental income from a type of investment called real estate investment trusts (REITs). These firms allow ordinary people to invest in rental properties without the headache of dealing with tenants. The business is pretty easy to wrap your head around: REITs buy properties, collect rent from tenants, and pass on the income to unitholders. Firms may specialize in different niches, from commercial and office holdings to retail and residential real estate. And thanks to an assortment of tax advantages, these partnerships pay out yields from five percent to as high as 15%. With that in mind, let’s dig into some of my favorite players in this space...

The Perfect Income Stock for Retirement Investors?
In recent years, retirement investors haven’t had the best of luck. Even though the U.S. Federal Reserve has started raising its benchmark interest rates, most savings accounts have still paid next to nothing. Moreover, those who put their money in the stock market have had to deal with bloated valuations and subdued yields. Today, the average S&P 500 company offers an annual yield of just 1.85%. Meanwhile, living costs have been going up. According to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Consumer Price Index for the U.S. increased 2.2% over the 12-month period ending in February 2018...

Is This 11.1%-Yielding REIT A Buy Right Now?
This REIT's shares were kicked to the curb in March when the company issued its 2018 FFO guidance. The company's dividend yield has spiked to ~11 percent, suggesting that the market is increasingly concerned about the REIT's dividend sustainability. However, the REIT has not slashed its dividend before, and the REIT continues to cover its dividend with cash flow. An investment in it is only suitable for investors with a very high risk tolerance. Investors that rely on safe dividend income should give this one a pass for now...

Is Now A Good Time To Buy This 11.5% Yielding BDC?
This company's shares sell for a wide discount to NAV after the 2018 sell-off in high-yield. The company has a fairly diversified investment portfolio that consists largely of secured debt. It increased its exposure to variable-rate debt in the last several quarters. I don't expect a dividend cut over the short haul. An investment in the stock yields 11.5 percent...
