3 Diverse Dividend Stocks With 6%-Plus Payouts

Posted by D4L | Saturday, August 19, 2017 | | 0 comments »

High-yield dividend stocks sometimes exists because of a deterioration in the fundamentals of a company that puts downward pressure on the stock price, but sometimes such instances of overly negative pressure offer up an opportunity where the underlying business can be purchased at a lower price. More importantly for those seeking income, in addition to a lower price and thus higher margin of safety, these opportunities are accompanied by a hefty yield. And they can be found across industries. Below are dividend stocks from retail, healthcare and oil & gas.

Bricks-and-mortar retailer Macy’s Inc. (M) may just be the most contrarian pick in my portfolio, but after being beaten down this year -- Macy’s stock is down 33% YTD -- it is now a compelling opportunity for value investors. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) -- and the entire healthcare sector, in general -- was having a pretty good year through early June. BP (BP) provides a sizable yield and option value on an increase in oil prices. If the swings in commodity prices are too much to stomach, exposure via a well-run, strategic company like BP is a good choice.

This Overlooked Bank Stock Now Pays 5.33%

Posted by D4L | Thursday, August 17, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Investors have been in a love-hate relationship with bank stocks. On one hand, banks can be some of the most solid businesses. A well-run financial institution can generate steadily increasing returns for income investors. On the other hand, banks can also be risky. The failure of a large number of banks in the 2007-2008 financial crisis serve as the latest reminder.

Because of what happened in the last financial crisis, investors may have second thoughts about putting their money in bank stocks. And that skepticism has led to the lackluster share price performance of a huge financial institution, HSBC Holdings plc (NYSE:HSBC). HSBC was first established as The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in 1865. Today, it is a multinational bank holding company with 4,000 offices in 70 countries and territories around the world. Headquartered in London, U.K., HSBC is one of the biggest banks in the world with $2.4 trillion in assets.

This company is a top-shelf income vehicle with a record of consistent dividend growth. Correction in the REIT sector has made it much more affordable. Strong portfolio stats and dividend coverage tilt the odds in favor of ongoing dividend growth. The REIT just handed shareholders a 4.4 percent raise. Entry yield: 4.7 percent.

National Retail Properties, Inc. (NNN) is a high-quality REIT with a diversified real estate portfolio and, importantly, a much more attractive and affordable valuation after the correction in the REIT sector in the last several months. National Retail Properties offers income investors an opportunity to capture long term FFO and dividend growth, and the real estate investment trust has just recently handed shareholders another dividend raise.
