Dividends4Life: These 2 Inflation-Fighting Stocks Pay Dividends Monthly

Rising food and energy costs caused the consumer price index to jump 9.1% year over year in June, the fastest increase since November 1981.Higher prices are weighing on consumers and companies alike. The good news is that hard assets like real estate tend to hold up well in inflationary environments. This is because increased building and financing costs make new properties more expensive to construct, which boosts the value and demand of existing commercial real estate. With that in mind, let's take a look at two monthly dividend-paying real estate investment trusts (REITs) that pay dividends monthly and boast high-demand properties that can help your own portfolio offset the brunt of inflation.

Realty Income's (O) $42 billion market capitalization places it among the largest REITs in the world. Due to the strength of its business model, the REIT holds over 11,200 freestanding, single-unit properties throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and western Europe. Stag Industrial (STAG 0.77%) is a pure-play industrial REIT with 110.1 million square feet of industrial properties located in 40 U.S. states. That said, Stag Industrial is a highly diversified business: The company's top-10 tenants make up just 10.8% of its annualized base rent (ABR). And no single market comprises more than 8% of Stag Industrial's ABR.
