Dividends4Life: 3 “Strong Buy” Dividend Stocks Yielding at Least 5%

Remember the movie ‘The Perfect Storm’? Three weather fronts collided off the coast of New England, and George Clooney’s poor fishing boat never stood a chance. Hopefully, today’s economies will do better against the headwinds that are rapidly spinning into a perfect political-economic storm. In this situation, investors will naturally gravitate toward defensive stocks – and that will quickly draw attention to the high-yield dividend payers. Dividend stocks offer a degree of safety by paying out an income stream whether markets move up or down, and that will help to insulate investors when the main indexes turn south. With this in mind, we used the TipRanks' database to pinpoint three stocks that meet a profile:

We’ll start with a commercial real estate investment trust (REIT), Alpine Income Property (PINE). Based at Daytona Beach, Florida, Alpine has a wide-ranging portfolio of properties, spread across most regions of the lower 48 states – the exception is the Rocky Mountain region. Global Medical (GMRE) has a portfolio comprising 167 buildings, with 298 leases. The bulk of the company’s operations are in the Midwest and Southeast regions, with 50 and 51 properties respectively. Medical Properties (MPW) has a $22 billion portfolio, with operations in 9 countries, and a total of 438 facilities with approximately 46,000 total beds.
