Dividends4Life: A High-Dividend Stock Yielding 9%, 14% Below Book Value And Major Insider Buying

We've covered many dividend paying stocks involved in various industries in our articles, but what if you wanted to get broader exposure and gain income from small, non-publicly traded companies? That's where Business Development Companies - BDCs - such as Gladstone Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:GAIN), come in. BDCs typically invest in smaller non-publicly traded companies, mainly by making loans to them.

GAIN's business model is a bit different - it not only makes loans to these companies, it often takes an equity position as well. Interest Rate Exposure: GAIN's Floating Rates loans comprise 80% of its Debt Portfolio, which will help GAIN to actually increase its income in the coming rising interest rate environment. With its 9.69% dividend yield, we've added GAIN to our High Dividend Stocks By Sectors Tables, in the Financials section. GAIN pays monthly dividends, and raised them to $.0625 from $.06 in March 2015.
