7.4%-Yield And Deep Value

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, February 19, 2019 | | 0 comments »

This company is an interesting income vehicle for high-yield investors to consider. It has considerable NII-upside. The REIT covers its dividend with core earnings, has room to grow its payout. Shares are affordable, and have an attractive risk/reward. An investment in the stock yields 7.4 percent.

Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc. (BXMT) represents deep value at today's valuation point for income investors that seek access to a high-quality, covered and sustainable dividend. The real estate investment trust has invested heavily into floating-rate loans in the last several years which are poised to throw off more net interest income in a rising rate environment. Blackstone Mortgage Trust comfortably outearns its dividend with core earnings and the REIT's valuation is appealing. An investment in Blackstone Mortgage Trust comes with a dividend yield of 7.4 percent.

There are varying industries that have companies paying monthly dividends. But they tend to be in businesses that are “cash cows,” providing dependable profits from which distributions can be paid. I’ve assembled a nice collection of companies that you can select to bump up your own portfolio’s cash payouts with regular to rising monthly dividends.

Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) is set up as a Business Development Company (BDC), which is codified under U.S. tax law under the Small Business Investment Incentive Act of 1980. EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that focuses on a very risk-controlled and efficient way to profit from real estate assets known as longer-term, triple net leases. Mention retailers and many investors will think that they are doomed by the likes of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and other online behemoths.

There are a lot of reasons to consider adding high-dividend stocks to your portfolio. They offer a steady income that can help ease the pain of a volatile market, and they typically represent companies with solid cash flow. That extra bit of security is worth having, especially when the market is jittery, and that’s what makes dividend stocks worth considering to round out any investor’s portfolio right now. One of the main considerations when it comes to picking dividend stocks is yield. Here’s a look at seven dividend stocks that offer investors a yield of 5% or more.

Communications firm AT&T (NYSE:T) has been on a steady decline ever since the beginning of 2017, when intense competition began to weight heavily on T stock’s share price. Altria Group (NYSE:MO) is the business behind some of the most popular tobacco brands on the market, such as Marlboro. Another tobacco firm that offers investors an impressive dividend yield is Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM). British oil and gas firm Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A, NYSE:RDS.B) is another dividend stock worth considering. The oil and gas sector is full of high-yield stocks. One such company worth considering is British multinational BP (NYSE:BP). Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) stock comes from a troubled history. Canadian energy transportation company Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) is another high-dividend stock worth taking a look at.

Can You Count on This 14% Yield?

Posted by D4L | Saturday, February 16, 2019 | | 0 comments »

If a company pays, say, 14%, you would only need to put up $71,429 to earn $10,000 in annual dividends. Of course, we know that double-digit yielders are not exactly the safest bets. As a conservative income investor, I’d rather have a diversified S&P 500 portfolio than put all my money in an ultra-high-yielding stock. Still, because of their generosity, ultra-high-dividend stocks could serve as yield-boosters in a well-diversified portfolio.

And that’s why I’m looking at CM Finance Inc (NASDAQ:CMFN) today. CM Finance is a business development company (BDC) headquartered in New York City. Like most BDCs, the company provides financing solutions to middle-market businesses. While CM Finance makes both debt and equity investments, its primary focus has been senior secured lending. As of September 30, 2018, 61.5% of the company’s portfolio consisted of first-lien loans, while another 34.7% of the portfolio consisted of second-lien loans.

GameStop (NYSE:GME) lost about 40% of its market value over the past three years, as rising digital downloads and declining mall traffic throttled its growth. However, that plunge reduced GameStop's forward P/E to 6 and boosted its forward dividend yield to nearly 10%. Do that low valuation and high yield make GameStop an undervalued income stock? Or is that high yield a red flag indicating that its core business is deteriorating?

Is GameStop an undervalued income stock? GameStop's stock is cheap for obvious reasons, and I don't think the dividend is worth the risk. The dividend could be easily sustained by its FCF after the Spring Mobile deal, but that cash would arguably be better spent on improvements to its core businesses.
