Dividends4Life: 3 Popular High-Yield Stocks I Don’t Recommend Owning

To build a portfolio of higher-yield stocks, I want to diversify across a range of attributes. I pay close attention to the current yield vs. dividend growth projections of companies. In a portfolio, I want some high-yield stocks where the dividend may not grow much paired with lower yield stocks with strong dividend growth potential. I also want to diversify across the types of high-yield stocks, including real estate investment trusts (REITs), energy infrastructure companies, business development companies (BDCs), and offshore domiciled corporations. I then try to further diversify among the subsectors of these larger groups of companies. To build a high yield portfolio becomes a process of individual company analysis to build a list of the highest quality, high yield dividend paying stocks and then picking from that list to end up with a diversified portfolio that will balance the ups and downs of the different sectors of the economy.

I have found that after going through the above process, which is continuous and ongoing, some very popular high-yield dividend stocks do not make the cut to be included in The Dividend Hunter recommendations list. Some of these are companies that I like and would not mind seeing on the list. But for one reason or another, they come up a bit short. Here are three that you may know and my reasons why they don’t currently make the cut. High-Yield Stocks I Don’t Recommend Owning: Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance Inc (ARI), Omega Healthcare Investors Inc (OHI) and W.P. Carey Inc. REIT (WPC).
