Can You Count on This 12.1% Yield?
Readers sometimes ask why I recommend stocks that recently cut their dividends. It’s a reasonable concern. Strong companies, by and large, boost their payouts, so slashing the distribution probably signals that something is wrong. Dividend cutters, however, often represent remarkable bargains.

It again covered its dividend with adjusted funds from operations in the second quarter. Management also raised the lower end of its 2018 AFFO guidance. Shares are still dirt cheap.
