Lock in This Safe 13.3% Dividend Yield

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, February 20, 2018 | | 0 comments »

In today’s market, the number-one reason why investors tend to stay away from ultra-high yielders is the concern about their dividend safety. Think about it: when most companies pay less than four percent, how is it possible for a company to support a double-digit dividend yield? Indeed, it’s not uncommon for a high-yield stock to cut its dividend. And as income investors with a long-term horizon, you’ll want to stay away from dividend cuts as far as possible.

Still, every once in awhile, you might come across a high-dividend stock whose payout is actually safe. I believe Consolidated Communications Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:CNSL) is a good example of this. Headquartered in Mattoon, Illinois, Consolidated Communications is a broadband and business communications provider. Through its fiber optic network spanning over 36,000 route miles, the company offers a wide range of communications solutions, including voice, video, data, managed services, and cloud computing.

REIT Offers a Rock-Solid Yield of 9.4%

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, February 20, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Ask any investor what kind of yield they want to have in their income portfolio, and the answer will likely be “the higher, the better.” Yet the blunt reality is that many people struggle to bring their portfolio yield above five percent. The reason is simple: most ultra-high yielders aren’t known for their dividend safety.

I’m going to show you a high-yield stock that would be suitable for even the most conservative income investor: Select Income REIT (NASDAQ:SIR). As the name suggests, Select Income is a real estate investment trust (REIT). The company owns and invests in properties and lands that are primarily net leased to single tenants. As of September 30, 2017, Select Income’s portfolio consists of investments in 366 buildings, leasable land parcels, and easements totaling 45.5 million square feet.

President Donald Trump ran on a ticket of making America great again. While the consensus on that point is very much split, what’s not deniable is the markets’ response. Trump’s pro-business agenda was credited for sparking an impressive rally. With enthusiasm overshooting rationality, however, high-dividend stocks are suddenly looking very attractive to investors. Here are the 10 best high-dividend stocks to buy when the market is blue...

I’m not going to win any points for originality by picking AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T). Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) as suffered significant choppiness in recent years. You should buy Dominion Energy Inc (NYSE:D). I’ve criticized General Electric Company (NYSE:GE). Big oil companies like Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) aren’t popular with the public. A top industry to consider is healthcare, and for passive-income seekers, look no further than Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE:MPW). Iron Mountain Incorporated (Delaware) REIT (NYSE:IRM), the renowned information-storage firm. I listed Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) as one of the best dividend stocks to buy.Altria Group Inc (NYSE:MO). Consider Rexford Industrial Realty Inc (NYSE:REXR).

Retirement Stocks That You Should Already Own

Posted by D4L | Sunday, February 18, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Here’s a run-down of retirement stocks you should probably already own even before you make working at a job a thing of the past. Separately or collectively, they provide a nice balance of growth and income, as well as a comfortable balance of risk and reward. In most cases dividend — and dividend growth — is in the cards, yet not necessarily at the expense of capital appreciation as well. You’ll need that too, as inflation can and often does outpace marketwide dividend yields.

There’s no denying AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has had its struggles. Wireless telecom as well as broadband have become commodities, and cable television is no longer just available through a literal cable. Yes, Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC) was the same bank that seemed to struggle the most to shake off the impact of the subprime mortgage meltdown. It’s cliche to be sure, but people aren’t going to stop eating, they’re not going to stop using water, and they’re not going to stop taking their prescription pills that are (in many cases) keeping them alive. That’s good news for Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE:MRK). Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) has finally figured out how to remain relevant on the modern consumer market. One of the best-of-breed choices among utility stocks is Southern Co (NYSE:SO), which serves nine million customers, mostly in the southern part of the United States.
