Top High-Yielding Low-Value Buys During These Volatile Times


During the last weekend, positive comments came from the White House, and the market immediately followed with an upbeat mood. Nonetheless, we should brace ourselves for continued volatility as the trade war saga progresses. The recent market environment is the best reminder that in investing, the most important thing is a clear and unambiguous strategy, which holds our emotions firmly under control. As I pointed out during the last weekly update, I still see opportunities in the U.S.... Read more

Gladstone Commercial: Strong Yield At A Decent Value


Gladstone Commercial (GOOD) represents a steady source of income at a decent value. Its triple net cashflows are locked in with a long weighted average lease term which provides solid visibility on future revenues. The primary criticism I hear about GOOD as an investment is that it is high risk. I disagree. How risky is GOOD? GOOD is often described as being quite risky as seen here and here. While I respect both of these authors and agree with them on many investments, we... Read more

Brookfield Property: A Safe 7% Yielding Blue Chip With Double-Digit Return Potential


This article was coproduced with Dividend Sensei. Real estate has been one of the best ways for income investors to exponentially grow their income and wealth.

DVYE: Can't Find Yield? Here's A 7% Divdend ETF With High Growth Potential


(Source - Pexels) We live in a world where it is terribly difficult to find yield and stability. All U.S. treasuries pay a roughly 2% yield, which is just 20 basis points above the projected inflation rate. "High dividend" funds such as corporate bonds (LQD) or even equities such as utilities (XLU) or REITs (VNQ) pay 3% or less. Equity valuations in the United States are among the highest in the world, even when economic growth rates have been subpar at best. Perhaps the problem is that... Read more

RNP: Diversified High-Quality Holdings, 6.40% Yield, Market-Beating Total Shareholder Returns


I've previously written about the Cohen & Steers Quality Income Realty Fund (RQI) and, most recently, about the Cohen & Steers Total Return Realty Fund (RFI). Cohen & Steers actually has a third REIT CEF, the Cohen & Steers REIT & Preferred Income Fund (RNP), so I thought I should write a third article about RNP and, taking advantage of my previous work, do an in-depth comparison of the funds. All three Cohen & Steers REIT CEFs offer investors diversified portfolios... Read more

SPYD: Relative Value Alert For High-Yielding Dividend Payers


Main Thesis The purpose of this article is to evaluate the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 High Dividend ETF (SPYD) as an investment option at its current market price. This is a fund I have owned for a while, but has been disproportionately impacted by the recent equity sell-off. Despite this stark under-performance, I view the short-term weakness as a great time to add to my position. Specifically, SPYD now yields a healthy 4.7%, which is up markedly from my last review due to a declining... Read more

PLDT: A Good Dividend Play For Those Wanting Exposure To The Philippines Economy


PLDT Inc. (NYSE: PHI) has long been a laggard in the Philippines stock market. It has recently announced quite strong Q2 2019 results. It continues to pay a regular high dividend. Currently, this is at 6.16%. All emerging markets carry some increased risk because of the Trump Administration's protectionist agenda. However, the Philippines has been a consistently strong growth economy. This is borne out most recently by the graph below from the Asian Development Bank: This... Read more
