4 Top Warren Buffett Dividend Stocks

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

Airline operators are no longer trying to undercut one another to death in the name of expansion. Instead, they’re now attempting to add value through strong profitability, robust cash flows, and healthy capital returns in the form of dividends and share repurchases–things that Buffett has always adored. Of course, those are also qualities that I constantly advise our Income Investors readers to look for in a company. So with that in mind, let’s take a glance at each one of Buffett’s airline purchases for possible dividend stock opportunities.

Berkshire bought in as airline stocks were flying high, seemingly running counter to Buffett’s “buy low” mantra. Well, Buffett isn’t exactly waiting for a pullback to buy more. Because according to a recent 13F filing, Berkshire not only added to holdings of Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL), United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL), and American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ:AAL), but also purchased a new stake in Southwest Airlines Co (NYSE:LUV). That brings Berkshire’s total investment in major U.S. airlines to more than $9.0 billion. (Source: “Form 13F,” U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, last accessed February 17, 2017.)

The danger of a high yield that is, in fact, too high is that it may suggest the stock price has fallen dangerously low for a reason. Super-high-yield stocks whose prices have fallen precipitously because of some major problem within the company may herald that the yield is going to be cut back. The company may have liquidity problems. So here’s a look at the three stocks with the highest dividend yield to see if they are safe to invest in. Note that I exclude royalty trusts and shipping companies as these have special circumstances as securities...

Stage Stores Inc (NYSE:SSI) is a company I’ve never heard of, despite it having over 800 stores across 39 states. It has a direct-to-consumer business also, that operates under the brand names of Bealls, Goody’s, Palais Royal and Peebles (as well as Stage). I don’t see this dividend as sustainable. New York Mortgage Trust Inc (NASDAQ:NYMT) is an mREIT that invests in residential mortgage-backed securities, multifamily commercial mortgage-backed securities, and residential mortgage loans. NYMT trades at $6.37 and pays 96-cent-per-share per year, for an annualized yield of 15.1%. NYMT is trying to hold on to the idea of paying this high yield through a very expensive capital raise. TICC Capital Corp. (NASDAQ:TICC) is a Business Development Company. TICC trades at $7.32 and pays $1.16 per share, for a dividend yield of 15.9%, making it one of the top high-yield stocks in the market. I think we have a dividend cut coming.

When the U.S. dollar declines, investors think more about international diversification. This can be accomplished by many different means such as buying a foreign stock, buying an ADR of a foreign company or investing in an international fund. However, one method that is often overlooked is buying large U.S. multi-national companies.

I cut my teeth as an investor at the feet of David Gardner. The Motley Fool co-founder believes that investing in "Rule Breakers" is the way to go. Oftentimes, these disruptive companies don't offer a dividend. That may help explain why my four largest holdings -- which account for over half of my portfolio -- have no dividend at all. That's why I think my sentiment for this article is somewhat extraordinary. There's a high-yield dividend stock that I want to own in 2017, and it's currently yielding a whopping 8.4% based on this year's expected payouts! And that company is...

Back in August 2016, I stumbled upon a company named Enviva Partners (NYSE:EVA). The story is pretty simple: Demand for wood pellets (of all things) is booming right now because Northern European power companies need them as inputs to help replace coal and reduce carbon emissions. Enviva has consolidated the market in Southeastern United States, bringing production plants online and purchasing a deepwater dock in the Port of Chesapeake. The company signs long-term contracts with these power providers. The average contract length is 9.8 years. If a company backs out before the contract expires, it owes Enviva a hefty termination fee.
