Beat the S&P 500 with Monthly Dividends

November 23, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ACG , PDT , MMT

In this volatile, slow growth market, dividends are one way to ensure your returns do not remain stagnant in the months and years to come. As investors seek more dividend income, a number of low quality closed-end funds are showing up in recommendations. Dividends are great but you do not want to couple them with price change loses. The downturn in price can blow up a great dividend investment in days. I avoid this by selecting the highest quality CEFs that pay monthly dividends and have a total return that beats the S&P 500 (SPY) index over the last year.  Read more here  [more]

The Best Dividend Plays for 2012

November 23, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: INTC , MCD , MO

I am expecting more of 2011 in 2012. The global financial burden will take some time before we return to a “normal” investing market. I am thinking that 2012 will be the year of the dividend. Rising dividends protect stock prices in bear markets. Dividend stocks are by nature defensive stocks. But a rising dividend acts like ballast and prevents the stock price from falling too far. A dividend payment signals management's intention to reward investors for offering their capital. As a stock analyst, I place more weight on the dividend payments than any other statistic when I size up a company. A strong dividend payment is a sign of a healthy business. Earnings can be manipulated but dividends do not lie. I have identified 9 stocks I consider the best dividend stocks (read article) for 2012. This is part 1 of the article.  [more]

How To Invest with Closed-End Funds (CEF)

November 07, 2011 – Comments (0)

Some investors may be confused about what is a closed-end fund (CEF) (click link for video).  There is a difference between an EFT and a CEF.    A closed-end fund is more widely used for income investments as 70% of CEFs are fixed income based.   At Get Rich Investments, we use CEFs for monthly income investments.   You can create multiple streams of monthly income by investing in several CEFs from various market sectors.   This is your own fund of funds using CEFs. Here is a great video to explain what a CEF is and how it works in the stock market.  [more]

List of High Yield Dividend Stocks

November 04, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ERF , MFA , TWO

With so many companies being affected by the financial crisis, it’s important for income investors to find dependable dividend payers that they can count on. With projections for a slower growth economy amid historically low interest rates, it’s now more important than ever to find these solid dividend paying companies as there are fewer places to turn to for high yielding investments without taking on unwelcomed risk. By screening for stocks with market beating yields, double digit growth rates, above median increasing cash flows and a strong balance sheet, this screen seeks to do just that by finding those companies that could turn into long-term core holdings for an income producing portfolio.  [more]
