Dividends4Life: Monthly Dividend Stocks To Pay The Bills

Monthly Dividend Stocks To Pay The Bills

Posted by D4L | Monday, April 09, 2018 | | 0 comments »

The mortgage is due every month. So are utility bills, car payments and the membership to the gym that many of us don’t actually use. That’s not a major problem for many people because they get regular paychecks. But when they eventually retire, it would be nice to at least partially match income to their expenses. Enter monthly dividend stocks. While bonds generally pay twice per year and most American stocks pay quarterly, a few select few stocks, ETFs and closed-end funds pay monthly, making them ideally suited for retirees living off their investments.

One such quirky stock is EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR), a REIT that specializes in entertainment and educational properties. Most REITs specialize in broad categories of real estate, such as offices or apartments. EPR’s specialty is far narrower. Forty-four percent of its portfolio is invested in entertainment properties, primarily movie theaters. Another 32% is invested in recreational properties, such as TopGolf driving ranges and ski resorts. And 21% of the portfolio is invested in educational properties such as charter schools and daycare centers. It’s an eclectic mix you’re not going to find anywhere else.
