Dividends Are Back

Posted by D4L | Monday, July 06, 2020 | | 0 comments »

One of the headwinds for mortgage REITs was the fact that a few mortgage REITs still had their dividend payments suspended. The number of mortgage REITs with suspended dividends declined for both common shares and preferred shares.

One of our expectations came true on 6/15/2020 after the close when NYMT brought back their common and preferred share dividends.Some major screening tools weren't spotting the new dividend as of Tuesday morning, but it may be fixed now. NYMT preferred shares have a double ex-dividend date coming up. Two dividends in one day!

3 Smart Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Posted by D4L | Friday, July 03, 2020 | | 0 comments »

With interest rates at historic lows and bond-yields heading down quickly, the payouts from dividend stocks are becoming more and more appealing with every passing day. However, in this market, it’s important to dive deep into a company’s financials and business model prior to investing since many businesses will have cash flow issues in the near-term that could put their dividends at risk. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of 3 smart dividend stocks to buy now to save you some of the hard work.

If you are looking for a company in the healthcare industry that is a dividend king, meaning that they have increased their dividend payout for at least 50 consecutive years, you need to take a look at Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). Sometimes, boring is a good quality to look for when it comes to dividend stocks. If you can find a company like AT&T (T) that has steady cash flows and an established customer base, it’s absolutely worth a look. Coca-Cola Company (KO) is one of the most iconic brands in the world. The multinational beverage corporation offers a solid 3.51% dividend yield and is another member of the esteemed dividend aristocrat club.

“Research shows that dividend cuts are associated with significant share price declines on announcement,” Cornell University Professor of Finance and Harold Bierman Jr. Distinguished Professor of Management Andrew Karolyi told InvestorPlace in an email. “Since dividends provide important signals about future earnings prospects (cuts imply uncertainty), they are often delayed, and are interpreted as a last resort action.” Dean Karolyi went on to say that the sectors most likely to see dividend cuts are those that have high yields and relatively high fractions of dividend-payers, compounded with “uncertainty about future earnings during the COVID crisis.”

With that in mind, here are 7 dividend stocks that could be in danger: Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY), Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB), Ventas (NYSE:VTR), Dow (NYSE:DOW), WP Carey (NYSE:WPC), Kraft Heinz (NYSE:KHC), VF Corp (NYSE:VFC). With the market as volatile as it has been in recent months, it isn’t hard to imagine these stocks taking big hits in the near-future.

3 Top Stocks With High Dividend Yields

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 01, 2020 | | 0 comments »

The idea behind buying these three stocks is the same. They all have dividend yields above 3% and the potential to grow earnings significantly in the future. The downside should be protected by the dividend while the upside comes from releasing the value inherent in each company.

With current dividend yields in excess of 3%, these stocks look like a good value for dividend-seeking investors. Let's take a look at why 3M (NYSE:MMM), Watsco (NYSE:WSO), and Eaton (NYSE:ETN) are good options for dividend-seeking investors and perhaps get a better sense for why these three stocks have high dividend yields.
