A Safe 8%-Yield From This Top-Shelf BDC

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, January 17, 2018 | | 0 comments »

This BDC is a promising income vehicle for 2018. It has a large variable-rate investment portfolio poised to throw off more cash in a rising rate environment. Dividend coverage is above-average. The BDC's shares aren't cheap, but worth the price. An investment in the stock yields 8.0 percent.

Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. (GSBD) deserves a lot more attention and coverage than it is getting. Goldman Sachs BDC has above-average dividend coverage stats that make it a very promising yield play going forward. Further, the business development company has upside potential in 2018 as the Federal Reserve keeps pushing interest rates higher. Shares sell for a premium to Net Asset Value, but it is a premium worth paying in my opinion. An investment in GSBD comes with an entry yield of 8.0 percent.

It's no secret that great dividend stocks are often the source of consistent wealth creation over time. But what might come as a surprise is that some of the best dividend stocks aren't always those with the most publicity. Some of the most extraordinary dividend stocks are unknown to investors.

With this in mind, we asked three of our Foolish investors to offer up one unknown but amazing dividend stock that they believe investors would benefit from looking into. Making the list were apartment-based real estate investment trust AvalonBay Communities (NYSE:AVB), storage-facility operator Public Storage (NYSE:PSA), and online pet pharmacy PetMed Express (NASDAQ:PETS).

his 9.7% Dividend Yield Is Surprisingly Safe

Posted by D4L | Monday, January 15, 2018 | | 0 comments »

In an efficient market, higher returns always come with higher risk. In other words, if markets are efficient and you want to earn a yield of, say, seven percent, you will likely have to take on more risk. The good news is, markets aren’t always efficient in reality. Every once in a while, you may come across a high-yield stock whose payout is more than safe.

Sabra Health Care REIT, Inc. (NASDAQ:SBRA) is a good example of this. Headquartered in Irvine, California, Sabra is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that specializes in healthcare properties. The company’s portfolio currently consists of 569 skilled nursing facilities, senior housing, hospitals, and other healthcare properties. They are located throughout the U.S. and Canada.
