Like with most medicines, there are always side effects. Such loose monetary policies mean that there is little fixed-income reward for cash anywhere on the planet. Interest rates on accounts is near nil and bond yields are on life support. In fact the U.S. is the only major economy that still has positive yields there. In Europe investors are losing money on bonds they buy. While it seems like lunacy, it is indeed happening, so investors seeking fixed income returns have no choice but seek that in equities. Today we discuss three stocks that are viable venues for this.

TINA (the acronym for There is No Alternative) is widely used for U.S. Bonds, but it also applies to dividend stocks. Investors who want consistent returns have no choice but buy these assets, thereby placing a buy-the-dip trade below current prices. Here are three dividend stocks I think are worth your time here: JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), Chevron (NYSE:CVX) and Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM).

3 Top-Ranked Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, August 06, 2020 | | 0 comments »

As a replacement for low yielding Treasury bonds (and other bond options), we believe dividend-paying stocks from high quality companies offer low risk and stable, predictable income investors in retirement seek. One approach to recognizing appropriate stocks is to look for companies with an average dividend yield of 3% and positive average annual dividend growth. Numerous stocks hike dividends over time, counterbalancing inflation risks. Here are three dividend-paying stocks retirees should consider for their nest egg portfolio.

Corporate Office Properties (OFC) is currently shelling out a dividend of $0.28 per share, with a dividend yield of 4.35%. In terms of dividend growth, the company's current annualized dividend of $1.1 is flat compared to last year. Piedmont Office (PDM) is paying out a dividend of 0.21 per share at the moment, with a dividend yield of 5.37%. Taking a look at the company's dividend growth, its current annualized dividend of $0.84 is flat compared to last year. Currently paying a dividend of 0.19 per share, Spartan Stores (SPTN) has a dividend yield of 3.49%. Looking at dividend growth, the company's current annualized dividend of $0.77 is up 1.32% from last year.

9% Yield, 9% Deep Discount, Monthly Payer

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 05, 2020 | | 0 comments »

Trying to find a different slice of the high-yield market for your portfolio? Convertible high-yield bonds and preferreds can offer investors an attractive yield and an additional play on the underlying equity, but the devil is in the details - with high market volatility, the conversion factor can turn sour, and the bond price may not always reflect that change.

If the general idea of convertibles sounds appealing, you may want to consider Calamos Convertible And High Income Fund (CHY). It's a closed-end fund with 514 holdings, whose investment objective is to provide total return, through a combination of capital appreciation and current income. CHY yields 8.99%, and pays monthly. Its -9.42 discount to NAV is cheaper than its one-, three-, and five-year discounts to NAV, which ranged from less than -1% to just -3%. Its top sector holdings are Tech, Consumer Discretionary, and Healthcare - the three best performing sectors in 2020.

Income investing should be one of those activities that allow an investor to sleep at night. A steady return of cash via dividends is a great way to pay for retirement, college education costs, or any other periodic payment. Dividend stocks and fixed income investments are great ways to generate these returns. It's important to pick the right companies that manage themselves well enough to maintain and/or (even better) improve their dividends each year. Here are three other tips to remember when navigating the investment seas of income stocks.

  1. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is - This is the No. 1 thing to keep in mind when looking at dividend stocks. Whenever you look at a dividend stock with a dividend yield percentage that is much higher than its peers, the market is telling you that there is some risk to that dividend.
  2. Payout ratios can help indicate which stocks are at risk - How can you tell if a dividend might be at risk? The easiest way is to look at the stock's payout ratio, which is the annual dividend per share divided by earnings per share.
  3. Keep a close eye on earnings trends - Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. This is one of the key things to keep in mind when looking for dividend stocks.

Most dividend stocks listed on U.S. exchanges have quarterly payouts. Thus, shareholders can build an annuity-like cash stream. For many established corporations annual dividend yields tend to be around 2%-4%. And the top ones typically increase their dividend amounts over time. When a firm increases payouts, it usually is a signal to shareholders that future earnings and cash flows are expected to be robust.

As another busy earnings season starts, you may want to consider buying the dips in a number of them. Let’s get right to it and look at seven of the best dividend-paying stocks for the second half of the year: Archer-Daniels-Midland (NYSE:ADM), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Home Depot (NYSE:HD), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) and Walmart (NYSE:WMT).
