Here's a key trait for investors seeking steady dividend stocks to consider: How stable is the company's earnings track record? After all, dividends are paid out of a company's profits. So it makes sense that companies that are consistently profitable would be able to pay steadier — and perhaps even increasing — dividends. With that in mind, here are three stocks on the Dividend Leaders list with the most stable earnings and a market-beating yield...

Kimberly-Clark (KMB) has an annualized yield of 3.5%, roughly double the S&P 500's 1.74% average payout. Coca-Cola (KO) has seen flat or slight profit declines the past three years. Its annualized yield is 3.4%. Relatively speaking, Toronto Dominion (TD) has shown better price action than the other two dividend stocks this year, with a 4% gain. The Canadian bank has an annualized yield of 3.4%.

The average stock in the S&P 500 currently has a dividend yield of 1.8%, which is about half the long-term average. Meanwhile, even with interest rates on the rise, the yields offered by bank CDs and government bonds aren't that much more attractive. Because of that, it doesn't take much to excite most income-seeking investors these days. Not only do they offer well-above-average yields, but these companies should continue increasing their payouts every quarter like clockwork...

That's why those who like dividends will undoubtedly love what Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) have to offer. Not only does this trio of energy midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) pay well-above-average dividends that currently have yields of between 5.6% and 7.2%, but they have consistently increased their payment rate each quarter. With those payouts on rock-solid ground and more growth in the forecast, this trio of MLPs is perfect for dividend fans.

3 Stocks I'll Hold Forever

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, October 17, 2018 | | 0 comments »

I own roughly 30 stocks in my personal portfolio, but there are some I bought because I think they're currently undervalued -- not necessarily because I think I'll hold them forever. On the other hand, there are a few stocks in my portfolio that I could see myself holding throughout the rest of my career, throughout my retirement, and eventually passing on to my children. Here are three stocks I can't see myself getting rid of anytime soon...

I'm not even 40 yet, so that's quite a long time horizon. And while I'm not necessarily committing to holding these stocks forever, here's why Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), Public Storage (NYSE:PSA), and AT&T (NYSE:T) could be core components of my portfolio for decades to come.

Is This 9.8% Dividend Safe?

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, October 16, 2018 | | 0 comments »

This company is an income vehicle only suitable for investors with a large investment portfolio and a high risk tolerance.
The BDC has slashed its dividend payout in the past, which suggests that it has a higher-than-average dividend adjustment risk. The stock is currently priced at a 21 percent discount to the last reported net asset value. I rate it as a "Hold". An investment in it yields 9.8 percent.

Prospect Capital Corp. (PSEC) remains a promising income vehicle for investors seeking high, recurring dividend income. That being said, Prospect Capital Corp. has repeatedly slashed its dividend payout in the past, which increases the dividend adjustment risk considerably. I think it is crucial that income investors buy Prospect Capital Corp. at a significant discount to net asset value in order to improve their margin of safety. An investment in Prospect Capital Corp.'s common stock yields 9.8 percent.
