Dividend Alert: Last Chance on 3 REITs Paying Up to 8.5%

The Contrary Investing Report

Investing and Trading News, with a Contrarian, Sarcastic Twist!

With panicked investors in full retreat, we’re left with three ridiculously cheap opportunities that could outpace the market in coming months.

Best of all, the three of them offer respectable dividend yields, with one above 8%.

However, before we jump into them, let’s discuss why markets may be heading higher.

Fears of a Recession are Overblown

Growth forecasts are now rising, and the economy looks nowhere as bad as the bond market yields would have us believe.  For example, even with all of the chaos this summer, consumers have remained resilient– and they’re spending.

July 2019 retail sales jumped 0.7% month over month, for example.… Read more

The most reliable recession indicator in the world just flashed red—and it’s actually setting us up for 33%+ gains in the next two years.

A contradiction? Sure sounds like it.

But history tells us we can expect a fast return like this when the economy and stock market look exactly like they do right now.

I’ve got two ways for you to grab a piece of the action, one of which even hands us a growing 7% cash dividend.

And when I say “growing,” I mean it: this already-huge cash stream has grown 96% in the last 15 years, and it’s backed by the strongest stocks in America (I’m talking about the 30 names on the Dow Jones Industrial Average), so there’s plenty more to come.… Read more

As broke investors worry more and more about a stock market crash, billionaires are quietly loading up on their favorite dividend paying stocks. Investing for growth and income, these “country clubbers” know how to 4X their yields without taking on any additional risk.

Who would you rather invest with? Obviously, the rich guy or gal versus the hopeful retiree sweating out every stock tick.

Wealthy people collect assets that, over time, help them accumulate more and more wealth. Average investors, meanwhile, clutch to their stocks like they are lottery tickets. They buy shares and “hope” that they go up every minute of every day.… Read more

If you ever want to retire (or stay retired!), you’ve got a big problem. Bonds don’t pay much now, and they’re likely to pay less and less in the months and years ahead.

I probably don’t have to tell you that the yield on the 10-year Treasury note has crashed to 1.6%. In other words, a $500K investment would get you a pathetic $4,000 in interest income every six months (as Treasuries only pay semiannually, unlike the three strong monthly dividend payers I’ll show you shortly).

Then there’s the specter of negative interest rates, something folks in many countries already know: today, $15 trillion of government bonds around the world are sloshing around with yields below zero.… Read more

The PGIM High Yield Bond Fund (ISD) trades at a huge discount that’s going to disappear soon.

Before I explain why, let me tell you something else about this fund: it boasts a huge 8.4% dividend yield. In other words, you’d get $700 per month—or $8,400 a year—in income on every $100,000 invested. And you should consider getting in now, because ISD is set to soar.

A New Fund

For years, ISD provided a solid and reliable return, thanks to its strategy. The fund would buy corporate bonds that expired in just a couple years (or less), so there was less risk of any company going bankrupt or defaulting.… Read more

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are great potential fits for any modern retirement portfolio. With interest rates ticking down from 2% to 1% and, perhaps, eventually 0%, these generous dividend payers are benefitting big time.

REIT stocks tend to yield twice as much as regular ol’ stocks. They collect rent and pay it directly to their investors as dividends. This “capital light” approach gives them cash cow status. It’s a big reason why REITs outperform the broader market over any length of time.

So should we just buy the biggest, most successful REITs and enjoy their dividends and the growth of their payouts.… Read more

Markets went off the rails this week, as the 10- and 2-year Treasury yields invert.

In fact, the 10-year Treasury bond yield just slipped to 1.627%, which was below the 1.632% yield on the 2-year.  That was the first time that’s happened since 2007.

Even the yield on the 30-year bond just fell to an all-time low of 2.02%, which was below its former record low of 2.0889%.

What’s nerve-wracking is that such a development in the 2/10 has occurred ahead of every U.S. recession over the last 50 years, sometimes leading by as much as 24 months, says Fox Business. … Read more

What if there was a way you could tap this market correction to grab the biggest S&P 500 stocks cheap—all while hedging your downside and getting a 7.2% dividend yield?

It’s not only possible, but you can do it in one single buy. More on that in a moment.

First, I’m pounding the table on stocks—and in particular funds like the one I’ll show you shortly—for one reason: there’s a huge disconnect between the drop in the market that we’ve seen lately …

Investors Miss the Memo

… and what S&P 500 companies are telling us.

And that is that far more firms than expected are crushing the Street’s forecasts.… Read more

“I did read that. I thought about you, B.O.”

While other people may be known for their hobbies, or their families, my publisher thought of me when a Vanguard fund re-opened!

I’ve yapped about the Vanguard Dividend Growth Fund (VDIGX) before. I rarely mention (let alone endorse!) mutual funds. But VDIGX is notable for two reasons:

  1. I plow 100% of my 401(K) contributions into this fund, and
  2. It’s a pretty good option as far as retirement plans go.

Why this fund? Because in my “Brett Inc.” company plan, I have a set list of Vanguard funds to choose from. This is “set and forget” money so my goal is to maximize long-term returns.… Read more

I want you to think about your very first reaction when you flick on the TV and see the Dow has crashed 300, 500—even 800 points. It feels like you’re drowning, right?

It’s physical, like a gasp after falling into a cold lake. Your first instinct is likely to reach for the closest “life preserver.” For most folks, that means panicking and flipping holding after holding over to cash.

You’ve probably made this mistake. You might’ve made it last Christmas, when many investors, burned by last year’s selloff, threw in the towel …

… just in time to miss the 18% total return stocks have delivered since!… Read more
