Dividends4Life: The 7 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for Q3 and Beyond

As they say, it ain’t over until the fat lady sings, and we still have another half of the year left to go. Today, we’re going to take a look at the best dividend stocks to buy for the third quarter and likely the rest of the year. You’ll immediately notice that there are several names on the list that struggled in the first half of the year, and that’s by design. After a lengthy stretch of underperformance, I expect to see value stocks — and particularly dividend stocks — take leadership. Last year, we saw a similar pattern. Energy stocks, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and dividend stocks in general started the year in the doghouse. But in the second half, they roared back to life. So with no further ado, here are the seven best dividend stocks for the second half of 2017...

I’ll start with the proverbial red-headed stepchild of the group, leading American automaker General Motors Company (NYSE:GM). Next up is health and senior living REIT Omega Healthcare Investors Inc (NYSE:OHI). There are plenty of areas of the retail economy that are healthy, and triple-net retail REIT VEREIT Inc (NYSE:VER) has solid exposure to them. It has been a wild couple years in pipeline giant Energy Transfer Equity LP (NYSE:ETE). Until now, every stock I’ve recommended had a rough start to 2017. But that certainly isn’t the case with private equity manager Blackstone Group LP (NYSE:BX). This brings me to Northstar Realty Europe Corp (NYSE:NRE), a REIT specializing in high-end office properties in the major business centers of Europe. Yet under the radar of most investors, emerging markets have been enjoying a nice run in 2017. iShares Emerging Market Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:DVYE) is up over 16% year to date.
