2 Cheap Dividend Stocks You Can Buy Right Now

Posted by D4L | Saturday, February 25, 2017 | | 0 comments »

The real estate sector performed quite poorly over the latter half of 2016 as interest rates began to rise, creating some attractive buying opportunities for long-term investors. Here are two REITs with strong dividends, both of which have fallen considerably from their 2016 highs, that income-seeking investors may want to take a look at. Most residential REITs invest in apartment communities, but the Great Recession created some attractive opportunities in the single-family rental market, and a few REITs were formed to take advantage.

One of these, Silver Bay Realty Trust (NYSE:SBY) was formed in 2012 to capitalize on the abundance of attractive single-family properties. The REIT acquires properties, renovates them, leases them to tenants, and manages them internally. Silver Bay has built a portfolio of about 8,900 properties, most of which are in Georgia, Florida, or Arizona -- three markets that were particularly hard-hit by the recession. Shopping center REIT DDR Corp (NYSE:DDR) is another cheap dividend stock I think is attractive right now, after a big decline in the second half of 2016. First, it's important to note that DDR invests in a specific type of shopping center, which it calls "power centers." These are shopping centers located in large markets, where the tenants are high-quality national companies, and where the anchor stores are value- and convenience-oriented.

Our articles have covered many different Canadian high-dividend stocks over the past year mainly due to the fact that they pay monthly dividends with good dividend coverage. This stock yields 9.74%, with a dividend payout ratio of just 50.64%. Its 2016 acquisitions have grown sales by 21%, EBITDA by 57%, and net earnings by 53% in the most recent four quarters. Analysts are forecasting 26% earnings growth in 2017. This stock is undercovered - it only has 4-6 analysts following it, and hasn't been covered on Seeking Alpha in over 1 year.

We went back across the border this week to profile another Canadian equity, CanWel Building Materials Group Ltd. (OTC:CWXZF), a small cap stock which hasn't received much coverage in the financial press. CanWel Building Materials Group is one of North America's largest distributors of building materials and home renovation products serving the new home construction, home renovation and industrial markets. CanWel also operates nine wood preservation plants that produce quality treated wood products. Management has kept its quarterly payout steady at $.14/share since June 2014 after its 1-for-2 stock split in May 2014. Prior to that, it was $.07/share. CWX's Dividend Payout Ratio is listed as being around 55% on the various financial websites, which means that it's based on a dividends-to-comprehensive income calculation.

The U.S. population is aging, presenting the U.S. health care system with unique challenges. The 85+ age cohort is particularly at risk of having to rely on senior-focused health care facilities. This REIT profits from a rise in senior-related healthcare spending. The REIT's property portfolio will deliver long term value for shareholders. It has no near term debt maturities, and strong dividend coverage. An investment in the company yields 6.6 percent.

Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:SBRA) is poised to profit from an aging U.S. population, and increasing demand for senior-related health care spending. Sabra Health Care REIT's portfolio of skilled nursing facilities and senior housing sets the company up for continued FFO growth in the coming years. The REIT has a reasonably low P/AFFO ratio. Cash flow and dividend growth make this income vehicle a Buy.

The nearly decade-long era of ultra-low interest rates has been kind for dividend-paying stocks. Not only have they often offered payouts that are more robust than the yield on 10-Year Treasuries, but they have also racked up spectacular share price gains. But income-oriented investors now face a changing backdrop. Rising bond yields are now surpassing the payout levels of many dividend producers. To stay ahead of the curve, you need to focus on firms that have a long history of rising dividends in any economic climate. That means "dividend aristocrats." Here are five that currently offer dividend yields ahead of the 10-Year Treasury rate...

1. Abbott Labs (ABT) - This healthcare firm has boosted its payout for 44 straight years (and at least maintained its dividend for a stunning 92 years). 2. Consolidated Edison (ED) - My Grandma bought shares of this New York-based utility year after year, extolling its steady dividend growth. That streak of rising payouts is now in its 42nd year. 3. AT&T (T) - AT&T insists that there will be ample cash flow to both handle the debt burden and maintain growing payouts. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) - This healthcare firm shows the value of compounding, one of Warren Buffett's favorite investment metrics. Cincinnati Financial (CINF) - While this firm's current 2.8% yield is reasonably impressive, know that insurance firms are now entering the sweet spot of their cycle.

Now, to be sure, bank stocks have been rallying since the U.S. election in early November, as a Trump presidency fueled optimism on Wall Street for deregulation and lower taxes.

With that in mind, here are five dividend bank stocks that flew on Friday, and which could keep flying under Trump...
