The beauty of income investing is that it allows boring businesses to deliver exciting returns. A few percent in dividends may not seem like much. But if a company can consistently raise its payout, shareholders will be handsomely rewarded in the long run...

Just ask any longtime shareholder of Chubb Ltd (NYSE:CB) and you’ll see what I mean. Chubb stock hasn’t really made many headlines, but, over time, it has returned a tremendous amount of cash to investors. Chubb is the largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company in the world. It provides a wide range of products and services, including commercial and personal property and casualty insurance, personal accident and supplemental health insurance, reinsurance, and life insurance to a diverse client base.

Two High-Yield Stocks to Own Forever

Posted by D4L | Sunday, June 17, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Even after multiple rate hikes from the U.S. Federal Reserve, savings accounts are still paying next to nothing. That’s why over the last several years, more and more income investors have started considering high-yield stocks. The problem is, though, most high-yield stocks today are not known for their dividend safety. If you are saving for retirement, you probably don’t want to put your money in a company that might cut its payout soon. Lock in High Dividend Yields That Are Also Safe...

And even if you have a bit more risk tolerance, buying companies with questionable yields can still be a painstaking process. For one, you’d have to pay close attention to the company’s financials to make sure it has enough money to cover the next dividend payment. Still, that doesn’t mean investors should ignore high-yield stocks altogether. If you are willing to do the research, you can still find high-yield companies that can give even the most risk-averse income investor a peace of mind. Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) serve as great examples.

Many investors label companies with long dividend track records as “dividend aristocrats.” That is not just a catchy term. There are indices devoted to dividend aristocrats, including the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index. The Dividend Aristocrats Index, which serves as the benchmark for a well-known exchange-traded fund (ETF), holds companies with dividend increase streaks of at least 25 years. While many dividend aristocrat stocks are trailing the broader market this year, historical data suggest dividend growers usually outpace broader benchmarks over the long haul. Here are some dividend aristocrats to consider buying now...

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the largest U.S. oil company, has a dividend increase streak that dates back to the 1970s. Another Dow component, Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG) is the world’s largest maker of household products. Aflac Inc. (NYSE:AFL) is much more than the company behind the commercials with that wacky duck. Medical device manufacturers have been a source a strength for the healthcare sector for over two years and Medtronic Plc (NYSE:MDT) is one of the largest members of that group. Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO) has paid a dividend every year since 1893 and is on a payout increase streak that is fast approaching six decades. Investors looking for a single stock play on the index fund and ETF boom may want to consider S&P Global Inc. (NYSE:SPGI). Like the other staples names highlighted here, Clorox Co. (NYSE: CLX) has had its problems this year.

A great investment for income investors with a long time horizon is in dividend-paying companies. Dividend stocks are a safe bet to increase your portfolio value as they provide both steady income and cushion against market risks. Dividends play a key role in compounding returns over time and can form a large part of our portfolio return. I’ve made a list of other value-adding dividend-paying stocks for you to consider for your investment portfolio.

Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE:TRK) promotes, markets, and sponsors motorsports activities in the United States. Unitil Corporation (NYSE:UTL), a public utility holding company, engages in the distribution of electricity and natural gas in the United States.

Sometimes, analyzing and coming up with worthwhile high-yield vehicles can take on challenges similar to whack-a-mole. Earnings are growing really well, management keeps raising the distributions, new assets are coming onboard...but wait a minute, what about that debt load that just rose by 74%? Will the company's new assets be able to cover the heavier debt load? The yield is 10.25%, with 1.14X Q1 '18 coverage. Management has raised the quarterly payout 21 straight quarters, and plans to have 10% annual distribution growth through 2019. Q1 '18 had record revenue, net income, EBITDA and DCF.

DKL Logistics Partners LP (DKL) is the "yieldco" arm of Delek US Holdings (DK), its parent/sponsor. Its logistics assets exist mainly to serve DK's petroleum refining assets and transportation services. In this type of arrangement, the parent/sponsor sells/drops down assets to the yieldco LP, which in turn funds these acquisitions via a combination of equity and debt. The yieldco usually has an attractive distribution yield in order to garner support for its publicly traded units. DKL and DK both share the same management, and DK owns 94.6% of the GP interest and a 61.5% interest in the LP's common units.
