Remember the old song, "I've been working on the railroad, all the live-long day?" Have you ever wondered where those railroad workers go at the end of the live-long day? This company reported record earnings in its most recent quarter. Revenue grew 54%, and EBITDA grew 58%. It pays its monthly distributions in US dollars. It also has a unique revenue stream that supports its distributions.

American Hotel Income Properties REIT LP (OTC:AHOTF) has a deal with the railroads that guarantees the revenue from 72% of its "rail crew" hotel rooms. Unlike its competitors, who are 100% exposed to the whims of the consumer, AHIP has a substantial railroad customer base, which partially insulates it from ups and downs of its market. Here's another kicker - these are long-term contracts, with 4.3 years remaining on them. Although it's an LP based in Canada, AHIP's assets are primarily US-based. In addition to its railway hotels, AHIP also owns transportation-oriented, select-service and limited-service hotel portfolios, located in secondary and tertiary markets in the United States. These hotels are in close proximity to railroads, airports, highway interchanges, and other transportation hubs and stable demand generators.

5 Dividend Stocks with 20%+ Payout Increases

Posted by D4L | Thursday, July 27, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Exxon, Colgate and Walmart all have kept their streaks of dividend increases alive within the past year by hiking their payouts by less than 3% apiece. If you’re looking for serious dividend stocks to buy now, I can introduce you five income gushers that are doling out annual payout increases of 20% or more. But first, let’s quantify how why dividend growth is the single most important factor for you portfolio. The best dividend stocks to buy now are boring, but write big quarterly checks...

Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE:MTN) might not be the most recognizable name in investing, but it’s a great dividend stock to buy now. First Merchants Corporation (NASDAQ:FRME) is a mid-cap regional bank that’s located in Muncie, Indiana, and it couldn’t be a more boring company to talk about. But it’s still one of the best dividend stocks to buy now. First Merchants doesn’t hold a candle to American Tower Corp. (NYSE:AMT) when it comes to an itchy dividend trigger finger. Celanese Corporation (NYSE:CE) is cool. This lesser-known materials company has a wide-ranging business that includes chemicals, engineered materials, even food ingredients. On its face, it’s boring – until you see all the applications its products have.

3 Stocks That Pay You Each Month

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 26, 2017 | | 0 comments »

It's probably not much of a surprise to you that most dividend stocks make quarterly payments to their shareholders. While this has been the industry standard for some time, it can be rather inconvenient for investors who rely on their dividend income to cover living expenses. These stocks pay monthly dividends and have lots of long-term growth potential...

Fortunately, there are dozens of stocks that make monthly dividend payments, and the real estate sector has an especially high concentration of them. With that in mind, here are three equity real estate investment trusts (REITs) that not only make safe, monthly dividend payments, but could also deliver strong growth in your portfolio for years to come: Realty Income (NYSE:O), EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) and LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC).

For income investors who want to use the “buy-and-hold” strategy, few things are better than monthly dividends. The problem is that among the thousands of companies trading on U.S. stock exchanges, only a very small subset offers monthly distributions. In this article, we are going to take a look at a top monthly dividend stock that is currently yielding 5.24%...

The company in question is Stag Industrial Inc (NYSE:STAG), which is a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. As its name suggests, the company specializes in industrial properties. Now, I know what you are thinking: if an investor is looking to generate a steady stream of income from a monthly dividend stock, shouldn’t they consider retail REITs or residential REITs? Well, while industrial REITs may not have the best reputation when it comes to providing recession-proof income, Stag Industrial stock could represent a unique opportunity.
