Top 3 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 27, 2016 | | 0 comments »

While plenty of high-yield opportunities exist, investors must always consider the safety of their dividend and the total return potential of their investment. It is not uncommon for a struggling company to suspend high-yielding dividends which could subsequently result in precipitous share price declines.

The following contains our analysis of 3 stocks with substantial yields, that ultimately, we have rated "Buy": Liberty Property (NYSE: LPT) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.80%. Pembina Pipeline (NYSE: PBA) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.90%. Umpqua Holdings (NASDAQ: UMPQ) shares currently have a dividend yield of 4.20%.

This company announced a $0.46/share second-quarter dividend. It continues to combine attractive dividend income with potential for significant capital appreciation. Brexit shock had only had a minor impact. An investment in the stock yields 14.4%.

I have singled out mortgage investment company New Residential Investment Corp. (NYSE:NRZ) earlier this year as one of my favorite high-yield quality income plays that combines high income with the potential for significant upside. In a nutshell, New Residential Investment is my favorite income play in the high-yield market segment because the company pulls in strong core earnings that cover the company's dividend (and then some).

Income seekers don't just want any old dividend stock. They want companies that are going to give them the most bang for their buck. They want high-yield dividend stocks, or companies that are paying out 4% or more on an annual basis. High-yield dividend stocks are coveted not only for their superior current returns compared to interest-based assets, but also for the ability to potentially compound gains over time by reinvesting your payout into more shares of stock.

Among high-yield dividend stocks there is a special class of companies that reward their shareholders on a monthly basis as opposed to once a quarter. Including ETFs and bond funds, there were 127 high-yielding assets investors could buy with a market valuation of at least $300 million, a yield of 4%+, and a monthly dividend as of July 1. Here are three that I happen to fancy. American Capital Agency (NASDAQ:AGNC), primarily an agency mREIT, is looking to benefit from weak U.S. GDP and jobs growth and Brexit fears by feasting on continued low interest rates. EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR), a diversified REIT that primarily invests in real estate assets in the entertainment, recreation, and education industries. LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC), which invests in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living properties around the United States.

Brexit is still affecting the financial world. The bond market is seeing historically low yields, which is driving investors towards other investment opportunities. One of these investment vehicles is dividend stocks, which offer investors income as well as some downside-risk protection. Many investors know that screening is a very powerful way to find the best stocks, but creating your own screens can be difficult and time consuming.

Below are 3 high-yield dividend stocks that also have top Zacks Ranks and solid Zacks Style Scores that were found from using the “Dividends with Style” premium screen: BG Staffing Inc. is a national provider of temporary staffing services across a diverse set of industries. Genesis Energy operates crude oil common carrier pipelines and is an independent gatherer and marketer of crude oil in North America, with operations concentrated in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and New Mexico. CenterPoint Energy is a domestic energy company that includes electricity transmission and distribution, natural gas distribution and sales, in addition to interstate pipeline and gathering operations.
