The market’s historic bull run just hit a brick wall … and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve had my eye on three robust dividend growers for months. And thanks to this pullback, they finally trade at attractive prices (and pay a blended 6.5% yield!)

February saw the S&P 500 decline for the first time since October 2016 – the month before Donald Trump was elected president. The index dipped 3.9% as every last sector dipped into the red. And with a little shove at the start of March, stocks have lost just about all their gains in 2018.

Compared to the past year-plus, it feels like blood in the streets, sidewalks and gutters.…

Investors looking for income with low risk tend to gravitate heavily toward bonds, but their efforts are often better spent in preferred stocks. These “hybrid” securities commonly pay 5% or 6% but gyrate far less than common stocks – certainly less than most shares that offer a similar amount of yield.

Is the 21%er a trap? Of course it is. But my favorite double-digit payer isn’t – in fact, its 10% payout is secure and spectacular. But this “last safe 10% yield” won’t last long – they never do!

So read on to learn about my best income buy as we round out today’s diversified dividend dozen.

The annual “sell in May and go away” period for stocks is nearly upon us, and many investors are worried about Wall Street starting to take profits from the market’s go-go run since November. Me? I’m looking for high-quality, high-yield dividend plays that you can buy in May – or June, or July, or whenever – and never sell.

Today, we’re going to discuss two 7%-plus yielders that fit any “no withdrawal” portfolio perfectly.

They are preferred stocks – wonderful “hybrids” that offer aspects of both stocks and bonds. Preferred stocks can trade on an exchange just like any common stock, but they trade around a par value and dole out a fixed regular payment just like a bond.

And the reason they’re called “preferred”? …
