Daily dividend news for investors in dividend stocks

Monthly Pay Dividend Dog Yields From 13.2% To 34.3% From Top 10 As Of Sept. 4, 2015

Monthly Pay Dividend Dog Features
Dividend stockholders of quarterly, semi-annual and annual pay modalities anxiously await announcements from a firm, fund, or analyst to learn if their next dividend will be higher, lower, or paid at all.
Monthly pay stocks, funds, trusts, and partnerships inform the holder every four and one-third weeks by check and/or statement. If the entity reduces or suspends a payment, the holder can cancel investment immediately to cut future losses.
That investor advantage has been countered by company managers making sudden cuts or cancellation of monthly dividends to save cash. Thus the segment is volatile.
Dog Metrics Uncover Bargains
Fifty-seven dividend stocks plus sixty funds, trusts, and preferreds were culled from nearly 750 entities listed here allegedly paying monthly returns. One mopay stalwart cut its payout and dropped out of the top thirty, Crescent Point Energy Corp. (NYSE: CPG) [33]. Two more mopay dividends evaporated in this falling price market: Pengrowth Energy Corp (NYSE: PGH) cut its annual dividend to $.04 and went to Q-pay. Baytex Energy Corporation (NYSE: BTE) stopped paying dividends altogether.
All 57 stocks listed this month were ranked as of September 4, 2015, using the two key dog performance metrics: (1) stock price; (2) annual dividend. Dividing the annual dividend by the price declared the percentage yield by which each dividend dog was ranked.
