Foreign shares usually give you some diversification from US assets, but they'll also give some currency exchange risk, so your monthly payouts will vary according to the current Canadian/US currency exchange rate. This stock yields 8.4% with a conservative payout ratio of 74% for the past four quarters. Its big 2015 acquisition has created huge growth in 2016: Revenue is up 65% and net operating income is up 57%. It has paid monthly distributions since January 2013.

Northview Apartment Real Estate Trust (OTC:NPRUF) has become the third-largest residential REIT in Canada thanks to a major, transformative deal it did in late 2015, in which it acquired True North Corp. It also acquired a large portfolio of 4,650 multi-family units from Starlight Investments Ltd. The "F" on the end of NPRUF's code indicates that it is a fungible stock, which means investors can either trade it in the US or on its foreign exchange. Northview now has a much more balanced geographic income model, with NOI from western and northern Canada shrinking from being over 86% of total NOI in 2015 vs. 56% so far in 2016.

5 Dividend Stocks to Buy in January

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 19, 2017 | 1 comments »

The best way to start the New Year off on the right foot is by purchasing high-quality dividend stocks and allowing them to go to work for you over the long-term. Dividend stocks have historically left non-dividend-paying stocks in the dust over the long run, and companies that pay dividends often have time-tested business models that serve as beacons to attract investors hungry for added income.

So which dividend stocks should you consider buying in January? That's a question we posed to a diverse set of Foolish contributors. The dividend stocks they settled on include Paychex (NASDAQ:PAYX), PNC Financial Services (NYSE:PNC), Terra Nitrogen Company LP (NYSE:TNH), Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP), and United Technologies (NYSE:UTX).

4 Cheap Dividend-Growth Stocks to Buy for 2017

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 19, 2017 | | 0 comments »

The year 2016 is in the books, and the S&P 500 gained over 11% on the year. That’s great news if you’re already in the stock market … but it’s bad news if you’re looking to buy. The market’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is now 26.1, which is 17.6% higher than it was at the beginning of the year. In other words, if you buy stocks now, you’re paying nearly a fifth more for those companies’ earnings than you would have nearly 12 months ago. At times like these, we all need to be value investors. Specifically, we need to find stocks that have missed out on the broader rally, but because they’ve been overlooked, not because they’re duds. You may be surprised to hear that there are a few such stocks are out there, even if they’re getting tougher to find...

Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ADR) (ASX) is one. Revenue growth just recently went positive after a year of declines. A second great under appreciated company is Ark Restaurants Corp (ARKR), which has a P/E ratio of 16.8. Flowers Foods, Inc. (FLO) is a bit pricier from a P/E perspective, trading at 23 times trailing-twelve-month earnings, but its 3.8% year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter, along with a 3.2% dividend yield, make it a contender. Surprisingly, there are a few remaining underpriced financial firms, despite the euphoria the sector has enjoyed after Trump’s surprise win, and FNF Group of Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (FNF) is one of them.

For income investors, the rarest combination to find is a high-dividend stock that is growing its dividend over time. The reason why this is difficult is that high-dividend stocks typically have no growth, so the earnings are simply paid out and that’s it. There is nothing wrong with receiving a high-dividend stock from a company with no dividend growth. However, there is the issue of the hidden cost of inflation.

When conducting my research to find a company with this rare combination, I discovered Cedar Fair, L.P. (NYSE:FUN). A company that operates amusement parks, outdoor and indoor water parks, and hotels across the U.S. and Canada, Cedar Fair’s market cap is just north of $3.5 billion. FUN stock is also part of a unique asset class to invest into because there are not a lot of opportunities available on the public markets.

2 Dividend Stocks That Shouldn’t Fool You

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, January 18, 2017 | | 0 comments »

After a raucous autumn and a tumultuous election season, many investors are looking to get off the roller-coaster of timing stock prices and looking to play it a little safer by investing in dividend stocks instead. While this is typically a solid way to boost your passive income and get a nice quarterly payout in your portfolio, 2017 could bring some unwanted bumps in the road for dividend stocks. For starters, several indicators point to a rise in interest rates in the coming year.

The Federal Reserve is expected to incrementally raise interest rates, which historically makes bonds more appealing than stocks for investors, and dividend stocks can take a nosedive during periods of bond growth. Also, many economists are forecasting a rise in inflation, another reason to choose dividend stocks very carefully. Weak ones should be avoided. Two dividend stocks in particular provide good examples of dividend stocks that look great on the surface but are too risky underneath the shine to hang on to in 2017: Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:ANF) and Windstream Holdings (NASDAQ:WIN).
