Dividends4Life: 9 Dividend Stocks to Buy for 6%-Plus Yields

9 Dividend Stocks to Buy for 6%-Plus Yields

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 03, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Not surprisingly, these high-yielding dividend stocks tend to be clustered in the real estate (REITs) and energy sectors, where payouts are traditionally higher and where prices have really come down of late. But there are some real dividend gems to be found elsewhere too, in sectors as diverse as restaurants, video game retailers and even private equity firms. Today, I’m going to recommend nine dividend stocks to buy, eight of which I own personally. Importantly, all have solid reputations as consistent dividend raisers. For me, this is the holy grail of investing: a high current yield and a dividend rising significantly faster than the rate of inflation. Some of these stocks are a little on the speculative side, which is to be expected considering the S&P 500 yields a paltry 2% these days. Yet I consider all of these picks to be reasonably safe buys at current prices. High-Yield Dividend Stocks to Buy...

I’ll start with a stock I would have never expected to include in a list of dividend stocks to buy — video game retailer GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME). I mentioned that Wall Street is negative on retail-focused real estate investment trusts at the moment, and you can definitely see that in W.P. Carey Inc. REIT’s (NYSE:WPC) recent stock performance. Shares have gone essentially nowhere since 2013 even while the dividend has enjoyed solid, steady growth. Triple-net retail REIT Vereit Inc (NYSE:VER) has seen its shares beaten like the proverbial red-headed stepchild of late. I’ll include one more REIT in our list of 6% dividend stocks to buy — healthcare and senior living specialist Omega Healthcare Investors Inc (NYSE:OHI). I recommended blue-chip pipeline operator Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) several weeks back, and I’d reiterate that recommendation today. Along the same lines, I’m wildly bullish on rival midstream MLP Energy Transfer Equity LP (NYSE:ETE).Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) is a solid business development company (BDC) that makes debt and equity investments in smaller and middle-market companies. Blackstone Group LP (NYSE:BX). Restaurateur DineEquity Inc (NYSE:DIN), which owns and operates the Applebee’s and IHOP restaurant concepts, has traveled a rough road of late.
