To avoid severe disappointments down the road, you should always give the target company’s balance sheet a solid run-through. The best dividend stocks will feature ample amounts of cash, which obviously supports the payout cause. Moreover, anything can happen in the markets, especially at this juncture. Having a cash moat enables firms to pay their shareholders, even when the going is rough. Additionally, a cash-rich organization allows management greater flexibility for future endeavors. You shouldn’t look at payouts as an ephemeral concept, but rather, a long-term relationship. Ultimately, the best dividend stocks are built for running marathons, not a 40-yard dash. Here are my picks for the top seven dividend-paying companies with a boatload of cash...

If you’re a tech connoisseur, or live an active lifestyle, you can’t help but love Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN). Based in New York City, multinational firm CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA) concentrates on building custom-crafted software for businesses. Such specialization should only increase in popularity as companies seek an edge in their particular industries. I freely admit that Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) isn’t what most people think about when they consider the best dividend stocks. That said, INTC stock benefits from the semiconductor firm’s position as a moat.

This stock is a high-yield, high-risk mortgage play. The mortgage REIT has above-average leverage stats, but a thin margin of dividend safety. Shares are no longer priced at a discount to BV. I'd prefer to wait for a drop before scooping up some shares. An investment in the stock yields 10.4 percent.

AG Mortgage Investment Trust, Inc. (MITT) is a high-yield, high-risk mortgage real estate investment trust whose shares have surged in the last three months. AG Mortgage Investment Trust is now priced at accounting book value, and the company has a thin margin of dividend safety. Should investors still buy this mortgage REIT, or wait for a drop before gobbling up shares in AG Mortgage Investment Trust?

A 15% Yield For Patient Income Investors

Posted by D4L | Thursday, July 19, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Looking for bargain basement deals in the high-yield space? The current yield is 15.03%, with trailing 1.09X coverage. Management has several growth projects due to kick into earnings in 2019. The market has discounted its price by 31% over the past year, but it has begun to come back - it's up 14% in the past quarter...

Take a gander at these performance figures for Summit Midstream Partners LP (SMLP), a company whose price/unit has been seriously pressured over the past year and year-to-date, greatly underperforming the benchmark Alerian MLP Index ETF (AMLP) and the S&P 500. SMLP had been up in the low $20s as recently as February '18, but then drifted down into the mid to low teen region, after its Q4 '17 earnings report. Over the last trading quarter, it has started to come back - it's up 14.18%:

Like any other investor, I have made several mistakes along the way, but they have helped me refine what I'm looking for (and avoiding) in a high-yield dividend stock. I'm still refining that process, but there are three key things I look for when picking a dividend stock for my portfolio: 1. Assets or a business model that have a decent level of clarity over the next 5-10 years. That can be assets with long-term revenue contracts or a hard-to-disrupt business. 2. A management team that has proven itself to be good stewards of shareholder money with prudent investments and an eye on keeping its balance sheet from becoming overloaded with debt. 3. A company that isn't promising an overly generous payout or gaudy dividend growth numbers. I'm in no rush, and companies that promise exorbitant yields or growth rates tend to not live up to those promises.

With these basic requirements in mind, I just added two dividend stocks I think will fit this mold well in my retirement account: renewable power asset owner TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP) and industrial real estate investment trust STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG). Here's why I think these stocks fit my mold for high-yield dividend stocks -- and why you may want to consider them for your own portfolio.
