3 High-Yield Stocks Still Worth Buying

Posted by D4L | Friday, November 16, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Chasing yield can be a dangerous pursuit for income-loving investors, as some of the most dangerous dividend-paying stocks sport very high yields. Sometimes high-yield stocks can mean high returns without high risk...

But that doesn't mean all high-yield stocks are risky. In fact, some can generate substantial total returns for investors. Welltower (NYSE:WELL), PetMed Express (NASDAQ:PETS), and National Presto (NYSE:NPK) are three high-yielding stocks that could just fit the bill.

Shares of AT&T (NYSE:T) plunged 8% to a new 52-week low on Oct. 24 after the telco posted a mixed third quarter earnings report. The company's revenue, boosted by its acquisition of Time Warner (now known as WarnerMedia), rose 15% annually to $45.7 billion and beat estimates by $320 million.

Its adjusted earnings rose 22% to $0.90 per share, but missed expectations by four cents. The bottom line miss was disappointing, especially since WarnerMedia added $0.05 to AT&T's earnings during the quarter. But after that big drop, many investors are probably wondering if it's safe to buy AT&T for its forward yield of 6.6%. Let's take a closer look at AT&T's dividend and the telco's biggest headwinds to find out. Simply put, investors should still consider AT&T a stable income investment. The stock probably won't rebound significantly over the next few months, but it should continue to pay out reliable dividends for the foreseeable future.

How 1 High-Yield REIT Saved Itself From Sears

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 14, 2018 | | 0 comments »

As Sears Holdings has tumbled toward bankruptcy in the past few years, its massive store base has become a huge liability for many mall owners. For some landlords, the problem was simply having a deadweight anchor that wasn't driving much traffic to the mall. In other cases, Sears has closed stores over the past few years -- or is poised to do so after filing for bankruptcy last week -- leaving a huge swath of vacant mall real estate in its wake.

Not too long ago, Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (NYSE:PEI) would have been severely impacted by Sears' woes. However, the mall REIT has done a remarkable job of reducing its exposure to Sears in recent years. As a result, the Sears Holdings bankruptcy doesn't pose a major threat to PREIT's financial performance -- or its generous 9.3% dividend yield.

3 Dividend Stocks to Play Safe Amid Market Mayhem

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 14, 2018 | | 0 comments »

The biggest advantage of dividend-paying stocks is the steady stream of income. Also, as most dividend-paying stocks belong to well-established companies that are financially sound, the price performances of these stocks usually don’t fluctuate much. The revenue-producing operations of these companies are rarely affected to a large extent because of economic, business or geopolitical reasons, making their stocks ideal for investments during market turbulences. Choosing dividend stocks that carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy) could ensure steady returns amid the market mayhem. The companies we picked also have a market capitalization of more than $1 billion.

Macquarie Infrastructure Company (MIC) owns, operates and invests in a diversified group of infrastructure businesses, which provide basic, everyday services, in the U.S. and other developed countries. GasLog Partners LP (GLOP) owns, operates and acquires LNG carriers with multi-year charters. Black Stone Minerals, L.P. (BSM) is a natural gas and gas company in the United States. Cedar Fair, L.P. (FUN) and its affiliated companies own and operate five amusement parks.
