Looking for a quiet high-yield place to invest in, while this market sorts itself out? In May 2016, we penned an article, which introduced SA readers to a little-known, under-the-radar stock. This stock yields 9%, with a low 39% Dividend Payout Ratio, and you've probably never heard of it. It has a low beta of just .28, and is up 26% since we last wrote about it, BUT it's still undervalued. The company's transformational plan is working well: Revenues grew 25%, Net Income grew 18%, and EPS grew 18% over the past four quarters.

Apparently, readers liked what we presented - North State Telecommunications Corp. (OTCPK:NORSB) (OTCPK:NORSA)shares have risen over 26% since our initial coverage, and are up over 30% year to date, thoroughly trouncing both the S&P 500, and the iShares US Telecom ETF (NYSEARCA:IYZ). After the initial jump, shares have hung out in the mid-to-high $50s range, which attests to its low beta and profile. There's a lot for income investors to like about NORSB, which trades on the OTC Pink Sheets - a steady dividend, strong earnings growth, and a low beta, for example. Volume is low, an average of 427 shares/day currently, but don't let that fool you - over 13,000 shares changed hands in the days following our article.

These 3 Hated Dividend Stocks Are Buys

Posted by D4L | Monday, December 05, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Just because the broader markets are hitting all-time highs doesn't mean that every stock out there is doing great. There are quite a few companies that have fallen a bit out of favor with the markets. For investors who are looking for dividend-paying stocks, this can be an opportune time to buy strong but unpopular dividend-paying stocks at decent prices.

Three of those companies -- 8point3 Energy Partners (NASDAQ:CAFD), National Grid (NYSE:NGG), and Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) -- look especially compelling today. Here's a quick look at each and why investors shouldn't worry too much about the market throwing some shade on these stocks.

Bond yields have been soaring for months and particularly since the presidential election. The 10-year Treasury yield is up nearly 70% from its mid-summer lows. Yet even after a run like that, the 10-year yield is still a pitiful 2.2%. Good luck living on that in retirement. Investors looking for retirement income are still going to have better luck with a portfolio of dividend stocks. High-yield dividend stocks are uniquely well suited as retirement stocks, as they reduce your need to sell assets to fund your retirement needs.

But if you’re depending on the income stream thrown off by a portfolio of dividend stocks, your retirement is safe regardless of whether the market goes up, down or sideways … indefinitely. With that as a backdrop, the following are three of my favorite dividend-paying retirement stocks. All of these are stocks that I’d feel comfortable dropping in a drawer and forgetting about for years at a time. Dividend Stocks to Buy for Retirement: Realty Income Corp (O), Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (EPD) and STAG Industrial Inc (STAG).

Following the surprising election of Donald Trump as the next U.S. president — and the market’s stunning rally in response — it’s looking increasingly likely that the Federal Reserve will begin raising interest rates again starting in December. And rising rates typically are no friend of dividend stocks. A post-election Reuters poll found that 85% of economists believe a December rate hike is coming. Yes, any interest rate isn’t going to be in percentage points, but basis points … but nonetheless, any move higher in interest rates is going to put at least a little pressure on dividend stocks as investors move into safer avenues for yield.

But not every dividend stock is expensive right now, and not every stock will feel the pinch if Janet Yellen announces higher interest rates in December. Right now, we’ll look at three dividend stocks that look Fed-proof for a number of reasons, whether it’s relatively cheap valuations or simply playing in an arena where a rate hike won’t spell doom. In no particular order. Dividend Stocks to Buy No Matter What the Fed Does: General Motors (GM), Internat and ional Business Machines (IBM) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM).

We all love high-yield stocks. But the reality is that not all high-dividend stocks on the market are worth investing your hard-earned money in. There is one group of companies that is known for providing reliable income to dividend investors: real estate investment trusts (REITs). So long as they distribute at least 90% of their earnings to shareholders, REITs are exempt from corporate income taxes. But not all REITs are the same. For instance, retail REITs and office REITs could see their financials deteriorate when a recession hits and business slows down.

One type of REIT, however, has proven to be mostly resilient: healthcare REITs. The idea is that whether the economy is booming or not, those who need long-term care will seek to get it. That is, the demand for healthcare REITs could be relatively inelastic to economic cycles. That’s one of the reasons why I believe Welltower Inc (NYSE:HCN) stock could be a great addition to a dividend investor’s portfolio. Welltower is a real estate investment trust that invests in senior housing operators, post-acute care providers, and health systems. The company was founded in 1970 and is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio. Welltower now owns more than 1,400 properties in major, high-growth markets in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.
