This company remains a top-notch income vehicle for DGI investors. The healthcare REIT has strong distribution coverage stats, and out-earned its dividend with AFFO in the last quarter. Industry fundamentals are intact. Shares are not cheap, but the valuation proposition is strong. An investment in the stock yields 4.9 percent.

Ventas Inc. (VTR) makes a compelling value proposition for investors that seek high-quality and recurring dividend income from one of the country's largest healthcare REITs. It has a diversified facility portfolio, very good distribution coverage, and the fundamentals in the healthcare sector (population growth, rising healthcare expenditures) remain intact. Shares are not a bargain anymore, but the risk/reward is still favorable, in my opinion.

A sizeable part of portfolio returns can be produced by dividend stocks due to their contribution to compounding returns in the long run. Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE:BHGE) has started paying a dividend to shareholders. It currently trades on a yield of 2.7%. Let’s dig deeper into whether Baker Hughes a GE should have a place in your portfolio.

Baker Hughes a GE has a trailing twelve-month payout ratio of 158%, meaning the dividend is not sufficiently covered by its earnings. However, going forward, analysts expect BHGE’s payout to fall into a more sustainable range of 29% of its earnings. Assuming a constant share price, this equates to a dividend yield of 2.8%. Furthermore, EPS should increase to $1.1, meaning that the lower payout ratio does not necessarily implicate a lower dividend payment.
