Dividends4Life: 2 Stocks to Buy With Dividends Yielding More Than 5%

A quick search reveals that as of this writing, 982 stocks listed on the NASDAQ or NYSE have dividend yields of 5% or more per year. However, a high dividend all by itself doesn't make a stock a good investment -- it's far better to focus on companies whose dividends grow over time, have relatively safe business models, and have the potential to generate share price appreciation in addition to income.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) can be a good place to find all of the above. Specifically, here are two excellent candidates -- Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM) and Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) -- that are good buys right now. As a final thought, I want to emphasize that these stocks are best-suited for the long-term investor, which I'll define as someone with a five-year investment timeframe or more. The entire point of REITs like these is to create a growing income stream and take advantage of the long-term price appreciation of the underlying properties.
