How To Get 6.3% Dividends From REITs At Low Cost

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) not only provide superior returns to the S&P 500 over a long period of time, but many withstood the Global Financial Crisis despite its real estate focus and offer far superior dividend yields. We can use a few simple screening criteria to create a portfolio of sustainable dividends yielding over 6% that also offer capital gains upside and a growing income stream. In what follows I will start with a universe of roughly 30 REITs and look at a variety... Read more

HCP: A Dividend Retrospective Of A Fallen Aristocrat

HCP (HCP) is one of the largest healthcare real estate investment trusts. Until last year, they were a dividend aristocrat at the same time. Dividend aristocrats are stocks which have increased their dividend payouts for at least 25 consecutive years. They were the only REIT among dividend aristocrats from the S&P 500. In this category, HCP has even been the highest yielding stock for some time. This all changed when HCP decided to spinoff their skilled nursing business including their... Read more

Dividend Growth 50: When Was The Last Time You Got An 8% Raise?

Bob Wells, my friend and fellow Seeking Alpha contributor, recently asked if I would start providing quarterly income reports on the Dividend Growth 50. Given that he was one of 10 panelists who teamed to create the portfolio three years ago, how could I turn him down? His reasoning: The DG50 includes so many companies that are popular with so many users of this site - especially Dividend Growth Investing practitioners - that the information could inspire readers to research potential...

My 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: Q3'17 Summary And Plan

To be honest, I was pretty much disconnected from the markets during the recent several months. The combination of the summertime with the family and non-stock-market-related initiatives took the vast majority of my focus during this quarter, and therefore my portfolio behaved indeed as a passive income machine. The only action that I took was during the month of July when I traded my Avista (NYSE: AVA) holding with Southern Company (SO). This trade allowed me to maintain the utility... Read more

Dividend Income Update August 2017

It's dividend income update time. One of my favorite times of the month as I get to review my previous month of passive income received from my dividend income portfolios. Without rehashing the wild ride we experienced in the market last month, I could find comfort in one thing, my dividends. As we all know, the market may move up and down irrationally and seemingly on a whim while our dividends remain much more stable, reliable and predictable. Sure, dividends may not increase every...

Lanny's August Dividend Income Summary

Okay, when does time slow down? Never. However, we have to do everything we can to make sure we get the most out of each minute! This marks 8 months of the calendar year down, with 4 months left. The dividend income figures relating to my 2017 goals haven't been hit yet, but I am doing what I can to reach the next ledge. For the purpose of this post, another month down means another month of dividend income has been received and reinvested. This August was a very solid one at that, and I am... Read more

HCP: Turnaround Taking Shape, 5% Dividend Yield Pays Investors Well To Wait

Investors buy REITs for many reasons. One of the primary reasons is because REITs are typically a source of high dividend yields. Another reason could be that REITs tend to be stable. HCP (HCP) has been anything but stable over the past year. It is one of the 172 REITs in the Sure Dividend database. You can see all 172 REITs here. HCP has gone through a series of lawsuits related to one of its previous tenants, HCR ManorCare. HCP eventually spun off the properties, which now trade... Read more

A Review Of The Dividend House Portfolio: Time For A House Inspection

It hit me the other day. I haven’t conducted a Dividend House portfolio review in over 18 months! This doesn’t mean that I haven’t been busy. Over the last year and a half, I have added and subtracted stocks in our portfolio with an eye to continually improving the quality and reliability of our dividend growth stream. But just how well does our current portfolio measure up against the Dividend House portfolio construction guidelines? It’s time to evaluate the... Read more

Bert's May Dividend Income Summary

My crazy month has finally come to an end. We entered the month in the middle of an intense housing search and left with an accepted offer. Still can't believe we are going to be first time homeowners! My wife and I celebrated our one-year anniversary Memorial Day Weekend as well. The beauty of it all is that while all the noise of my personal life is rolling along, my dividend stocks are quietly doing their work in the background. This is one of my favorite articles to write each month,... Read more

Stock Fundamentals On Trial : Do Dividend Yield, P/E and PEG Really Work?

Are high Dividend Yield, low Price / Earnings (P/E) ratio, and low Price / Earnings to Growth (PEG) ratio good indicators of future share price performance -- as conventional wisdom would suggest? Did high yield stocks (the Yield Stars) perform much better than low yield stocks (the Yield Dogs) in recent years? Did low P/E stocks (the P/E Stars) perform much better than high P/E stocks (the P/E Dogs)? What about PEG Stars vs. PEG Dogs? In this book I put company fundamentals on trial, using real historic data and specially annotated charts as evidence. In weighing up the evidence I consider whether the buy-and-hold investor had any advantage over the market timer, and whether stock picking would have been more effective than index investing.
