3 REITs to Buy to Build a Solid Foundation

Posted by D4L | Saturday, August 17, 2019 | | 0 comments »

REITs are reporting higher revenue and earnings so far for the quarter. But one of the specific metrics for profitability comes from the rate of return from funds from operations (FFO). This measures the profits that REITs make from just the core business of collecting rents from their tenants. There are several REITs with significantly higher FFO returns, but on average for our collection the FFO return is running at over 10%, which remains quite positive and is supportive for higher dividend payments.

I’ll start off with American Campus Communities (NYSE:ACC). This REIT has educational properties focused primarily on dorms for colleges and universities. Next is WP Carey (NYSE:WPC) which I’ve followed since it came to the public market back in the late 1990’s. And last up is Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) which I added to the Total Return Portfolio in the March Issue. This REIT is focused on health care properties from hospitals to other facilities.

If you are retired, you have likely shifted from building your nest egg to living off your assets. That means you probably gravitate toward stocks that offer a mixture of safety and yield. Oil and gas investments are out of favor today, but this trio stands out from the pack for safety and yield...

Right now, you can find those features, to varying degrees, in energy industry stalwarts ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), and, for the more adventurous, Helmerich & Payne (NYSE:HP). Here's a primer on why retirees should consider buying these three energy stocks.

Warren Buffett famously quipped that if you aren't willing to own a stock for 10 years, you shouldn't think about owning it for 10 minutes. That doesn't mean that it's never a good idea to sell a stock or that you shouldn't reassess your holdings in light of new information. But that piece of investing wisdom from the Oracle of Omaha emphasizes the importance of focusing on high-quality companies with characteristics that will allow them to thrive over the long term.

Strength in content and the ability to distribute it directly to consumers are two advantages that I think will help well-positioned companies deliver market-beating returns over the next decade. AT&T (NYSE:T), Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO), and Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) all fit that mold and constitute a substantial percentage of my overall holdings, and I think each one stands out as a worthy buy for long-term investors.

12.7% Yielder Most People Have Never Heard Of

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 14, 2019 | | 0 comments »

If sheer dividend yield is what you are looking for, then few companies can do a better job than FS KKR Capital Corp (NYSE:FSK). Never heard of this company? You are not alone. FS KKR Capital does not serve consumers directly, and as a result, most people aren’t familiar with it.

So, how does this little-known company manage to offer such a big payout? Well, FS KKR Capital provides customized credit solutions to private middle-market businesses in the United States. The company invests primarily in senior secured debt, which can generate a predictable stream of interest income. Then it passes that income to shareholders through regular dividend payments.

A 9.4% Yield That’s About to Go Even Higher

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, August 13, 2019 | | 0 comments »

A High-Yield Stock You Likely Haven’t Considered. In today’s market, what could be better than an annual dividend yield of 9.4%? The answer: a 9.4% yield that keeps on increasing. Sounds too good to be true?

Well, just take a look at what’s going on at PBF Logistics LP (NYSE:PBFX). As a master limited partnership headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, PBF Logistics LP is not a stock that gets mentioned in financial media that often. The partnership came into existence as a spinoff from PBF Energy Inc (NYSE:PBF) in 2014. Today it owns, leases, operates, develops, and acquires crude oil and refined petroleum products pipelines, terminals, storage facilities and other logistics assets.
