This Income Investment Now Yields 15%

If you had a list of the most “despised” income investments in the world, India would sit near the top. The country’s economy has started to slow after years of breakneck growth. Combined with a strong U.S. dollar, Wall Street’s interest in the subcontinent has drifted elsewhere. Today’s indicator highlights just how far Indian stocks have fallen out of favor. Here’s the thing: years of underperformance have left Indian equities trading at bargain prices. This has set the country’s stock market up for an explosive stock market rally. And for dividend hunters, this means it’s possible to find safe income investments paying double-digit yields.

Today, investors hate India. Analysts once hailed the country as the greatest opportunity of the 21st century. But with growth slowing, Wall Street’s interest in India just hit a multi-year low. You can see how bad the situation has become with a little-known income investment called The India Fund, Inc. (NYSE:IFN). IFN is a closed-end fund with around $611.5 million in assets as of this writing. The fund provides an easy way for people to invest in India. You don’t have to open a foreign bank account or travel to the other side of the world. With a few clicks, you own some of the country’s largest, most profitable businesses.

Dividend-paying companies are beacons of profitability. Generally speaking, a company isn't going to share a percentage of its profit or cash with shareholders on a regular basis if its board doesn't foresee the company growing, or at the very least remaining healthfully profitable, moving forward. Thus, a regular dividend can help investors decide whether or not a company passes the initial "sniff test" of having a sustainable and time-tested business. Second, a regular payout can help calm the nerves of skittish investors. Although stock market corrections are far more common than you realize, the abruptness of the downward moves caused by corrections can unnerve investors. Third, your payouts can be reinvested back into more shares of dividend-paying stock through a dividend reinvestment plan, or Drip. A Drip is what top money managers use to compound the wealth of their clients.

But of all the dividend stocks regularly followed by Wall Street and retail investors, they might be ignoring the greatest income stock of them all: York Water (NASDAQ:YORW). If the York Water name doesn't ring a bell with you, don't worry -- you're not alone. We're talking about a provider of drinking water and wastewater services in 48 total counties in Pennsylvania with a market cap, as of this past weekend, of $564 million. York Water has been paying a regular dividend to its shareholders since it was founded... all the way back in 1816. Although it may not have the same impressive streak of raising its dividend annually like the S&P 500's Dividend Aristocrats, there isn't a publicly traded company within a stone's throw of York's streak of paying a dividend for 203 consecutive years.

Using Dividend ETFs For Income

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, November 12, 2019 | | 0 comments »

The search for yield continues. If at the start of 2019 investors were hanging their hats on higher rates to bolster portfolio yield, they have been sorely disappointed. Retirees in particular often rely on the fixed coupon payments of bonds to generate income. But with the 10-year Treasury yield last yielding only 1.75%—not far from record lows—they’ve had to look elsewhere for that income.

One place they can still find it is in the equity market; namely, dividend ETFs. Yields on these funds can be double that of the 10-year Treasury. For example, the Vanguard High Yield Dividend Yield ETF (VYM), the second-largest dividend ETF on the market, has a 30-day SEC yield of around 3.3%. The biggest of them all is the $38.8 billion Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG). Many dividend ETFs focus on one of two strategies—high yield or dividend growth.

It has been a glum time for ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) shareholders. Regardless of whether you’re looking at the past one year, five years, or ten years, XOM stock has been stuck in the mud. You’d have to go back to before the Great Financial Crisis since XOM stock made investors significant money.

As is often the case, however, the longer a stock trades sideways, the bigger its next move will be. XOM stock has now traded largely flat for a decade, swinging up and down but generally remaining near the $75/share mark. When it finally gets going again, expect a huge move. Technically, Exxon stock is primed to explode upward once it starts accelerating. Here’s why Exxon’s next move will be upward, and probably dramatically so.
