Posted by D4L | Thursday, July 19, 2018 | | 0 comments »

While large-cap stocks tend to grab all of the financial headlines, we Fools believe that there are plenty of great businesses out there that quietly deliver for their shareholders. Here's why income investors should pay attention to these three dividend dynamos...

Want proof? We asked a team of our Motley Fool investors to each highlight a little-known income stock that they are quite fond of. Here's why they called out Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW), Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA), and LaMaitre Vascular (NASDAQ:LMAT).

Like any other investor, I have made several mistakes along the way, but they have helped me refine what I'm looking for (and avoiding) in a high-yield dividend stock. I'm still refining that process, but there are three key things I look for when picking a dividend stock for my portfolio: 1. Assets or a business model that have a decent level of clarity over the next 5-10 years. That can be assets with long-term revenue contracts or a hard-to-disrupt business. 2. A management team that has proven itself to be good stewards of shareholder money with prudent investments and an eye on keeping its balance sheet from becoming overloaded with debt. 3. A company that isn't promising an overly generous payout or gaudy dividend growth numbers. I'm in no rush, and companies that promise exorbitant yields or growth rates tend to not live up to those promises.

With these basic requirements in mind, I just added two dividend stocks I think will fit this mold well in my retirement account: renewable power asset owner TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP) and industrial real estate investment trust STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG). Here's why I think these stocks fit my mold for high-yield dividend stocks -- and why you may want to consider them for your own portfolio.

A Telecom Giant That Pays More Than 7%

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 18, 2018 | | 0 comments »

To income investors, few things are better than a solid telecommunications stock. A company that’s trying to enter the business will also need to acquire customers. Since most people are already with a carrier, the new company will have to spend a lot of money to convince them to switch. Turning a profit in this business would be extremely difficult for potential entrants. For incumbents in the telecom industry, though, the high barriers to entry have translated to oversized profits...

In today’s article, we will focus on a telecom stock that’s particularly generous to its investors—Vodafone Group Plc (NASDAQ:VOD). Vodafone is a telecommunications company headquartered in London, England. It provides a wide range of services, including voice, messaging, data, fixed broadband, and TV. The company has an established position in the business. It currently serves 470 million mobile customers, 14 million fixed broadband customers, and 9.8 million TV customers. Vodafone Group’s operations are separated into two geographical regions: Europe and Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific.

This 7.5% Yielder Is an Insider Favorite

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, July 17, 2018 | | 0 comments »

So here’s the situation: Management knows a lot more about their business than outside analysts, but the information they reveal may not always be accurate. Is there a way to get some insight on what they really think about their company? Well, you can always check whether they put their money where their mouth is. In other words, investors should pay attention to insider ownership.

And in this article, I’m going to show you a business that insiders love: Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP). To most people, Crestwood Equity Partners does not sound like a familiar name. That’s because the partnership does not serve consumers directly. Instead, it operates in the midstream energy sector. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Crestwood Equity Partners is a master limited partnership (MLP) with three operating segments: Gathering & Processing, Storage & Transportation, and Marketing, Supply & Logistics. The partnership owns a portfolio of midstream assets located primarily in the Bakken Shale, Delaware Basin, Powder River Basin, Marcellus Shale, Barnett Shale, and Fayetteville Shale.

I like executives that eat their own cooking. Managers can make all the rosy projections in the world, but if they’re not willing to step up and put their money where their mouth is, it tells you what they really think. High insider ownership also aligns the interests of the CEO with us shareholders. If a manager invests his wealth elsewhere, then what incentive does he have to promote the well-being of investors as opposed to lining his own pockets? You don’t have to worry about executives looting the business when you know their wealth depends on the long-term health of the company...

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that stocks with high insider ownership tend to outperform over the long run. The most obvious example, of course, is Warren Buffett, who has kept almost his entire net worth invested in Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK-A, NYSE:BRK-B). You can also point to other popular examples, like Elon Musk at Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), Bill Gates at Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Steve Jobs at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).
