Dividends4Life: High-Yield Stock Pays 8%, Robust Dividend Coverage, Just Raised Cash Dividend 9%

With interest rates still way too low, investors have to turn elsewhere for income and yield. Fortunately, commercial real estate finance REITs like Ladder Capital offer income investors an attractive entry dividend yield, strong dividend coverage, and attractive prospects for dividend growth. The stock makes a strong value proposition as an income vehicle. Excess dividend coverage implies future dividend growth. Its shares are selling for less than 10 times run-rate Q3-16 Core EPS, only a slight premium to book value. An investment in the stock yields 7.86%.

Ladder Capital Corp. (NYSE:LADR) pulls in robust core earnings from its multiple, complementary businesses, has core earnings upside related to an interest hike, and just increased its recurring cash dividend by 9 percent. Ladder Capital serves the entire commercial real estate finance spectrum: The REIT originates and invests in first mortgage loans whose values are underpinned by cash flow-producing commercial real estate across the United States. Ladder Capital also invests in commercial mortgage-backed securities and in direct real estate. The result is a highly diversified, highly secure commercial real estate investment portfolio that produces recurring interest income.

    I really like REITs. Some years they will trail the S&P500 but some years they smash it. They are a fairly reliable source of income as they rarely change. People need somewhere to live/work.
