3 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks to Buy Today

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 19, 2014 | 0 comments »

With interest rates at rock-bottom levels, investors everywhere are searching for investments with stable dividends. Many traditional dividend-paying stocks, such as utilities and REITs, have been bid up and now no longer offer significant yields anymore. If that in mind, we asked three of our top financial contributors to scour the investment-universe to find three stocks with sporting big dividends.

As far as rock-solid, high-yielding stocks go, it's tough to beat Prospect Capital. There are likely going to be companies with bigger dividend yields on this list, but it would be tougher to find one that is a better investment than New York Community Bancorp. One of my favorite high-yielding investments is Main Street Capital , another business development company. I'm not alone in liking Main Street Capital -- it trades at 1.7 times book, making it one of the priciest in the industry.One of the dirty secrets that few finance professionals will openly admit is that dividend stocks as a group handily outperform their non-dividend-paying brethren. However, knowing this is only half the battle. The other half is identifying which dividend stocks in particular are the best.
