Dividends4Life: High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 7%, Has Industry Tailwinds, Strong Revenue And Income Growth

Worried about a rising dollar dampening your stock's earnings overseas? How about rising rates cutting into profits? Like some of the other REIT's we've covered in our articles, Hotel REIT Hospitality Properties Trust (NYSE:HPT) has been given the cold shoulder by the market in 2015 due to investors' concerns about rising interest rates. However, HPT has minimal exposure (14% to be exact) to rising rates in its debt load.

In addition, it's riding a wave of stronger demand for hotel rooms as the economy has recovered, with RevPAR (revenue per available room) rising from 6.5% to 7.2% in 2015, and forecasted to continue rising 5.7% to 6.3% in 2016, by three hotel industry research firms. HPT has good dividend coverage - its FFO payout ratio is only 55%.
