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 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...

The 3 Best CEFs for Growth and Dividends

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 22, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Closed-end funds, or CEFs, are another innovation in tradable securities that have popped up in recent years. CEFs are somewhat similar to mutual funds or exchange-traded funds, but have a few important differences. Unlike those other two investments, CEFs raise capital by going public in an IPO, and then invest that capital according to its prospectus. Usually, the portfolio is highly targeted by the investment manager, and its price will move just as the price of a stock does.

The best CEFs may be trading at a discount and can also represent value, thus they give investors a chance to find some growth with their capital, as well as the high dividends. With that in mind, the following are the best CEFs for growth and dividends. Best CEFs to Buy: Nuveen Diversified Dividend & Income Fd. (JDD), Diversified Real Asset Income Fund of Beneficial Interest (DRA) and Alpine Total Dynamic Dividend Fund (AOD).
