3 Unknown but Amazing Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Monday, January 15, 2018 | | 0 comments »

It's no secret that great dividend stocks are often the source of consistent wealth creation over time. But what might come as a surprise is that some of the best dividend stocks aren't always those with the most publicity. Some of the most extraordinary dividend stocks are unknown to investors.

With this in mind, we asked three of our Foolish investors to offer up one unknown but amazing dividend stock that they believe investors would benefit from looking into. Making the list were apartment-based real estate investment trust AvalonBay Communities (NYSE:AVB), storage-facility operator Public Storage (NYSE:PSA), and online pet pharmacy PetMed Express (NASDAQ:PETS).

his 9.7% Dividend Yield Is Surprisingly Safe

Posted by D4L | Monday, January 15, 2018 | | 0 comments »

In an efficient market, higher returns always come with higher risk. In other words, if markets are efficient and you want to earn a yield of, say, seven percent, you will likely have to take on more risk. The good news is, markets aren’t always efficient in reality. Every once in a while, you may come across a high-yield stock whose payout is more than safe.

Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:SBRA) is a good example of this. Headquartered in Irvine, California, Sabra is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that specializes in healthcare properties. The company’s portfolio currently consists of 569 skilled nursing facilities, senior housing, hospitals, and other healthcare properties. They are located throughout the U.S. and Canada.

This niche LP yields 9.61%, and its coverage improved to 1.14x in its most recent quarter. It also has a new preferred series yielding over 8%. It has an average remaining contract term of 11.7 years. It's the only publicly traded pure play on a rapidly growing sub-sector of the energy shipping business. Revenue has grown 42%, and DCF is up 23% in the past four quarters - both hit records in Q3 '17. You get a 1099 at tax time - no K-1.

We've long included Hoegh LNG Partners LP (HMLP) in our articles about the LNG shipping industry. As it turns out, HMLP is the only publicly traded pure play on FSRUs. In one of our recent articles on the LNG shipping industry, we noted that "FSRU projects are projected to add ~70 metric tons/year to global regasification capacity by 2019." This seems to be where the action is - FSRUs have grown pretty quickly since 2013 - rising from annual 10% growth to 15% - 16% in the past two years, and they're projected to keep growing, eventually by 21% in 2020:

This company remains an interesting BDC, but only at the right price. It is both a trading and an income vehicle. Exaggerated NAV discount in 2018 would be a good reason to buy. An investment in the stock yields 10.14 percent.

Prospect Capital Corporation (PSEC) is an interesting BDC to buy for a high-risk income portfolio, but only if the price is right. I believe Prospect Capital makes for a promising trading vehicle, potentially allowing income investors to earn high risk-adjusted returns in case the BDC's shares start to trade at a 25 percent plus discount to NAV again. An investment in PSEC at today's price point implies a 10.14 percent dividend yield.
