Dividends4Life: 3 Great High-Dividend Stocks You've Probably Never Heard Of

There are a handful of high-dividend stocks that most income investors are familiar with, such as mortgage REIT Annaly Capital Management (NYSE: NLY ) and business development company Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC ) . While I have a generally favorable opinion of both companies, one of the best things you can do if you like investing in ultra-high dividend stocks is to spread your money over several companies.

High-paying stocks like these tend to be rather volatile, and one of the best ways to combat this is through diversification. That way, if any one of them has say, a bad quarter, or needs to chop its dividend, your overall portfolio won't suffer too much. With that in mind, here are three of my favorite lesser-known high dividend stocks you could add to your high-dividend portfolio: PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYSE: PMT), Apollo Investment Corp (NASDAQ: AINV) and BlackRock International Growth & Income Trust (NYSE: BGY)
