Finding reliable retirement income is harder than ever thanks to the Federal Reserve's rock-bottom interest rates, but we have three of the best dividend stocks for retirees to help you boost your income. The historical federal funds rate has usually stayed between 2% and 5% but we've been between 0.5% and 1.25% for the past nine years. And with stocks trading at all-time highs, even decent dividend income is hard to come by. Investing in companies that are tapped into these trends is the surest way to secure reliable dividend income...

The world's largest automaker, Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM), sports a 3.2% dividend yield. Switzerland-based ABB Ltd. (NYSE: ABB), specializes in power-grid construction, automation, and robotics technology. Currently sporting a 3.68% dividend yield, Sanofi SA (NYSE: SNY) is the highest-yielding stock on this list.

This REIT’s huge MSR portfolio and prospects for dividend growth are the two single biggest reasons to buy into the mortgage REIT today. It will most likely announce a dividend hike over the short haul - thanks to significant excess dividend coverage. Though shares have surged lately, the mortgage REIT is far from being expensive. I have a 12-month price target of $20, implying ~12 percent upside. An investment in the stock yields 11.2 percent.

New Residential Investment, Inc. (NRZ) not only offers income investors a covered 11.2 percent dividend yield, but an investment in the mortgage REIT also comes with capital upside as I see its shares as undervalued. New Residential Investment has one of the best dividend coverage stats in the sector that strongly tilt the odds in favor of a dividend raise over the short haul, or maybe even a special dividend. I think investors could capture total returns of ~25 percent over the next twelve months.

8.5% Dividend Yield At An Enormous Discount

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, December 13, 2017 | | 0 comments »

This stock plummeted after the company cut their dividend and then lost their investment grade credit rating. Preferred shares for it dropped significantly with the common stock. It is now in the strong buy range, but speculative.

CBL Properties (CBL) is in a tricky situation. I have a speculative buy rating on their D-series of preferred stock. Investors may recall that I suggested investors look to harvest their gains a while back. When CBL reported earnings and took a dive, I opted not to lower the price target on CBL-D much despite correlation risk. It was a reasonable decision, but in hindsight, I’m not happy with the choice.

Though the technology sector has had a banner 2017 in the stock market, there are still bargains to be found. In the past year, technology stocks have performed admirably: The sector is up 41%. Given that, finding a high-yield dividend stock in tech at a relative bargain price can be extra challenging.

However, two of the biggest names in technology still offer both value and income: infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and cloud software provider Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), and its fellow rapidly evolving tech stalwart, Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). Both are undergoing business transformations, and both trade at valuations well below their peers.

Why Insiders Have Loaded Up on This 9.2% Yielder

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | 1 comments »

No matter how talented a Wall Street analyst is, chances are they still don’t know about a company as well as that company’s own management. Being in the business every single day is what makes management the “insiders.” What this means is that when making investment decisions, it’s of utmost importance to check not only analyst ratings, but also a company’s insider ownership. This is because at the end of the day, when management is willing to bet with their own money, it’s a more solid vote of confidence.

Case in point, insiders at Ladder Capital Corp (NYSE:LADR) are willing to put their money where their mouth is. As of September 30, 2017, management and directors own approximately $180.0 million worth of the company’s shares, or around 11.8% of Ladder’s market capitalization. (Source: “Investor Presentation,” Ladder Capital Corp, last accessed December 4, 2017.) The most obvious reason why any investor would want to consider LADR stock is the generous payout. Ladder pays quarterly dividends of $0.30 per share. At today’s price, that translates to an annual dividend yield of 9.2%.
