Stocks To Create A High Yield Monthly Dividend Income Stream

August 02, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MO , GA.DL , MAIN

Dividend stocks are popular because they pay income to the investor. The majority of dividend stocks pay their dividends on a quarterly basis. This is good but investors only get 4 dividend checks per year. The investor must wait three months in between dividend checks. For example, Atria Group (MO) is a popular dividend stock that pays a high dividend yield of 4.6% per year. MO pays quarterly dividends of $0.41 and trades for $35.91. The investor in MO gets a quarterly dividend yield of 1.14% (0.41/35.91) or a monthly dividend yield of 0.38% (1.14/3). OK, who wants to get paid only 0.38% each month?  [more]

Investing Profits From The War On Obesity

August 02, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ARNA , OREX , AMRN

The fight against obesity will be a major investment trend for the next 25-50 years, according to a report by Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Globally, 500 million people are obese and 1.4 billion are overweight. Obesity is the fifth greatest cause of death, leading to 2.8 million fatalities each year. Worldwide prevalence of obesity doubled between 1980 and 2008, according to the World Health Organization. By 2030, 65 million more Americans will be obese if current trends continue. While its impact is well-known in the West, obesity is rising quickly around the world. Obesity in Europe has tripled in 30 years. It is growing rapidly in emerging markets as diets westernize. Brazil, where 16 percent of the population is obese, is on track to match U.S. obesity levels by the 2020s. Obesity has reached levels of up to 20 percent in Chinese cities. A quarter of Russian women are obese.  [more]

A High Yield Play on Lower Corn Yields

August 02, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ADM , POT , MOS

The U.S. cut its corn-harvest estimate 12 percent and said inventories next year will be smaller than fore cast in June as the worst Midwest drought since 1988 erodes prospects for a record crop. With the increase in corn prices, companies using corn will be hit with higher expenses while those increasing corn yields will prosper. The rise in corn prices will affect food prices as corn is a primary food source for livestock. Investors must be wary of how the increase in corn prices may affect their portfolios.  [more]
