Dividends4Life: High-Yield Dividend Stocks Powered by Private Equity

Dividend Growth Stocks News

Many private equity firms offer publicly traded investment vehicles specializing in lending to and investing in the type of middle-market companies that have helped drive such great returns over time. These dividend stocks pay out most of their earnings directly to investors, and the high yields generated by this type of lending can help provide much-needed income in a ZIRP environment.

Here are a couple private equity-powered dividend stocks on my radar right now: Apollo Investment (AINV), a business development company that invests in and ends to middle-market companies and pays out 90% of its net income to shareholders. As of the end of June of this year, AINV had more than $3 billion invested in 94 different companies. KKR Financial is a subsidiary of Kohlberg Kravis and Roberts (KKR) that invests in high-yield bonds, direct lending, equity investments, oil and gas royalty interests and commercial real estate. KFN also occasionally joins KKR in private equity deals. KKR Financial is structured as a publicly traded partnership and passes most of its income to shareholders.
