The Most Dangerous Investment

Posted by D4L | Sunday, June 25, 2017 | 0 comments »

The most dangerous investment is not investing in hedge funds, or even in derivatives. Though very risky, investing in penny stocks or day trading is not the most dangerous investment. Neither is investing in gold, or other commodities. Though investing in emerging markets focused on countries with unsettled governments is quite risky, it is still not at the top of the list.

It's not hard to find quality income-producing stocks. Nearly every investor out there can screen for stocks based on dividend yields. However, there is far more to successful income investing than buying high-yielding dividend payers. Investors must now look beyond dividends for income. Stock buybacks have become a popular way for companies to give excess cash back to investors. Here are three income stocks with high growth potential over the long term. Today's disconnect between revenue and share price make these stocks a welcome anomaly...

American International Group (NYSE: AIG): This nearly $60 billion global insurance company boasts a long history of returning cash to shareholders. This, along with a number of other reasons, makes it my favorite income-producing stock. Corning (NYSE: GLW) is a material science company best known for creating a variety of glass-based products. While not as undervalued as AIG, the future appears bright, with Corning positioned to be a dominant supplier of smartphone and television screens for years to come. Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA): This chipmaker leads the pack as the top performing S&P 500 stock of 2016. Shares are higher by an astounding 209%-plus over the last 52 weeks!

This REIT is a no-brainer. It has a strong real estate portfolio base that can be expected to throw off cash for many years to come. Importantly, the real estate investment trust's portfolio mix is changing, with more higher-potential industrial properties delivering FFO growth. The stock has wildly outperformed other real estate investment trusts, too, yet remains fairly valued. An investment in it comes with a five percent dividend yield.

Gramercy Property Trust (GPT) has a high-quality real estate portfolio comprising of 318 assets with 66.7 million square feet, mostly industrial. Gramercy manages its real estate base well since the portfolio occupancy rate has remained consistently high. At the end of the March quarter, Gramercy Property Trust's portfolio occupancy rate sat at 98.4 percent with the REIT's core industrial portfolio achieving an even higher occupancy rate of 98.7 percent.

Income investors are always looking for high yield dividend stocks. The one concern before deploying capital into a stock, however, is whether the dividend is sustainable. The easiest thing to do is make an investment decision based on a stock’s price and current dividend yield. But this is only part of a proper investment decision process, which has multiple steps to determine the ultimate potential of a dividend paying stock.

Following this theme, I have searched for, found, and researched a company that offers both a steady and reliable income source and growth: Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE:BEP). Let me explain the company’s operations before getting into the dividend information. Brookfield Renewable Partners owns and operates renewable power assets, including hydroelectric and wind power producers, both of which are used to generate electricity for the general population. The company has assets in North and South America, as well as in Europe. BEP stock is in a category of high yield dividend stocks that has been growing year after year. The yield on BEP stock is 5.93%, compared to the S&P 500’s yield of 2.2%. The company pays a quarterly dividend to shareholders, which accounts for an approximate targeted payout of 70% from its annual cash flow.

9 Dividend Stocks Beating The 4% Rule

Posted by D4L | Friday, June 23, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Over time the 4% rule has been criticized for leaving too much money on the table and in some cases retirees could outlive their money. For those not familiar with the 4% rule, William P. Bengen in 1994 published a study concluding that if retirees withdrew 4% (the 4% rule) of their nest egg in the first year, and then increased the dollar amount by the inflation rate every year, their savings would easily last 30 years.
