Dividends4Life: High Yield Stocks For The Dividend Investor

High Yield Stocks For The Dividend Investor

Posted by D4L | Thursday, June 13, 2013 | | 0 comments »

In part one of this series I looked at some solid dividend paying stocks with a rich history that will provide a solid backbone to any portfolio. In this part I am going to look at the high yielding dividend stocks that offer above average returns but significantly higher risk. High yield comes with high risk by its very nature, and with the whole market bouncing around new highs every day dividend yields are being pushed to new lows, driving investors into higher risk assets that offer a higher yield.

The most popular of these high risk/high yield assets are mREITs, which use high levels of leverage to achieve high returns. I believe the best companies in the high yield mREIT sector are Annaly Capital Management, Inc.(NYSE: NLY), currently yielding 12.5%, and American Capital Agency Corp.(NASDAQ: AGNC), currently yielding 18%.
