Billionaire T. Boone Pickens Earning an 11.7% Yield Here
Few people have made more money in oil than T. Boone Pickens. The billionaire oil tycoon grew up in Oklahoma during the Great Depression. From those humble beginnings, he went on to make a fortune in the energy patch. In the 1960s, Pickens got his start as a wildcatter. He branched out into different activities over the following years, working both as a corporate raider in the 1980s and hedge fund manager at BP Capital, LP. For this reason, I always watch where Pickens puts fresh money to work. And right now, he’s betting on pipelines...

2 Dividend Stocks to Buy in June
Though the market has only risen slightly this year, with the S&P 500 up about 1% year to date, stocks are still up significantly over longer time horizons. Over the trailing one- and three-year periods, for instance, the S&P 500 is up 12% and 28%, respectively. With stocks trading much higher than they were a few years ago, some investors may be looking to put their money in more quality, dividend-paying equities. This way, if stocks do undergo a correction, investors can at least count on some reliable cash flow from their portfolio. These two stocks are great long-term bets...

3 Stocks That Cut You a Check Each Month
Here in North America, most dividend-paying companies deliver their payouts on a quarterly basis. Every three months, you get another slice of the underlying company's cash flows.

I even found a couple of tickers in this rare category that look like solid dividend-paying buys right now...

A 9% Yield, 11 Straight Hikes, No K-1, Big Quarterly Growth Again
Are you allergic to K-1s? Or maybe your accountant is? There are pluses and minuses associated with traditional LP tax reporting, with one of the big pluses being tax sheltering/deferral on your distributions. This GP will merge with its yieldco in June - unitholder vote due on 6/26/18. The GP yields 8.96%, and management raised quarterly payout by 37% as part of upcoming merger. GP has 11 straight distribution hikes, and yieldco has 19, with very strong 1.3x coverage. GP has received multiple upward earnings estimate revisions over the past month...

This Stock Is A Strong Buy
This stock has a strong, diversified MOB portfolio that will throw off more cash in the future as aging trends and higher healthcare spending work in the REIT's favor. The REIT is growing its dividend payout and has a moderate degree of dividend safety. Shares are competitively priced, sell for a slight premium to book value. An investment in the stock yields 6.1 percent, and the yield on cost will most likely rise going forward...
