Quality high-yeild stocks

I would appreciate any input on quality high-yielders that pay a monthly dividend. I prefer the monthly payouts because I always
put the payouts into the dividend reinvestment program at E-Trade. Because of limited capital, I have to concentrate on lower priced shares. All input will be greatly appreciated. I realize that higher yields mean higher risk, but use reasonably tight stops.

Check out Atlantic Power Corp. AT on Nasdaq, or ATP on TSE. Price is low (3.00 ish), yield is about 10-12 % recently.

Try these two:

Prospect Capital PSEC & Fifth Street FSC. They pay monthly dividends. Both are BDO’s so due your own due diligence.

Mark,
Many thanks. As it happens I own both so it’s good to have some confirmation.
Thanks again. Being a member here is really a privilege.

I would have seconded the suggestion to consider those (PSEC and FSC). I hold both. Since you knew about those already, perhaps Eaton Vance Risk-Managed Diversified Equity Income Fund (ETJ) is something you might like.

Jake,
You suggested Atlantic Power, which I believe is a turnaround situation. Do you think they can sustain their dividend? That could really be a gem. Appreciate your input.

David: {‘m curious to know why you ask only for low priced issues. It’s the yield you’re after, right.? If a $100 stock pays a $8.00 dividend, you get an 8.0% return. If a $5.00 stock pays a $0.40 dividend, you get an 8.0% return. 8.0% is 8.0% no matter how you cut it – what you paid for the stock has no meaning other then the number of shares you can afford to buy.. You could own 1 share of the $100.00 stock or 20 shares of the $5.00 one. Your result is same-same. So why concern yourself about… Read more »

I would nominate ‘O’ Realty Income, a triple net REIT which raises its dividend multiple times a year. One downside is that most of the divvy is ordinary income, so be aware of that. I consider it pretty low risk, but do your own research. Another I’ve had for a while is BBEP, smallish oil an gas E&P MLP. Nice yield, some don’t like the K1 tax treatment. Due to the industry and size you’d have to consider it more risky, but I love it.
