The hotel industry is booming as America’s economic recovery continues. In 2016, hotel revenues across the board climbed more than 4% to hit nearly $200 billion — a record high. Meanwhile, STR and Tourism Economics forecast that U.S. hotels will continue chugging up the mountain over the next few years. Here are three hotel-focused REITs that pay sizable yields (up to 7%). Two of them have big upside potential while the third is proof-positive that even a bright industry has a few bad seeds...

Apple Hospitality REIT (NYSE:APLE) owns a whopping 235 hotels spanning 33 states and containing 30,000 guestrooms. These properties feature mid-upscale brands across the Hilton and Marriott families — such as Hiltons, Hampton Inns, Embassy Suites, Fairfield Inns, Homewood Suites, Renaissance Hotels and more. Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. (REIT): (NYSE:RHP) does more than just typical hotels – it primarily invests in “group-oriented, destination hotel assets.” It’s actually a small base of four properties — “meeting-focused” resorts under the Gaylord Hotels brand, but those four properties combine for just over 7,800 rooms. Chesapeake Lodging Trust (NYSE:CHSP) has the highest dividend of the bunch at nearly 7%, but that’s about all CHSP really has to boast about at the moment.

This tells me that the high dividend yield isn’t just a function of a falling stock price but of an increasing dividend as well. Finally, investing decisions have to be made with an eye to the future. Fundamentals on trailing financials can confirm valuation and management’s ability but equity investing is all about future cash flows. I want to see that the outlook will support the dividend with additional price appreciation. Finding quality dividend names in value territory is getting difficult and you need to be extremely critical of any stock trading for a steep discount to the rest of its industry. These companies passed my test for cheap dividend stocks based on the criteria above...

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) trades for a discount of 37% against the average P/E multiple of 27.8 times for its industry. Debt of 0.3 times equity is well under the average multiple of 0.45 times for semiconductor peers. Surprisingly Cheap Stocks With High Dividends: Intel Corporation (INTC)Intel dominates the microprocessor market with roughly 80% of the market share. General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) trades for less than half the average P/E ratio of 11 times for auto manufacturers. Debt is slightly higher than the 1.14 times equity average in the industry but the company easily covers interest and has a strong BBB- credit rating from Standard & Poor’s.

Yield is a function of stock price. In many cases a high, or even increasing, yield is the result of a steadily declining share price. Remember, all things being the same, as the share price drops, yield increases. Be certain that the increasing yield is not the result of a steady decrease in price! Finally, check for steady earnings and cash flow. Both should be increasing over time. The ability to pay consistent dividends comes from earnings and cash flow at the company. If these metrics are decreasing or unsteady, it can be a major warning signal to avoid the stock. Remember, it is best to look at cash flow and earnings over the long term. Year-over-year numbers paints a much more accurate figure, for long-term income investors than a quarter-by-quarter analysis. 2017's 3 Most Promising Dividend Payers...
