The 15 Highest-Yielding Real Estate Stocks

Dividend investing is popular again. Investors have taken to heart Jeremy Siegel’s studies, which show that higher-yielding stocks tend to offer greater returns over time than low- or no-yield stocks. The highest dividend yields can be very tantalizing. As long as a stock yielding 15% doesn’t lose value, you’ll make 15% in one year! In more cases than not, however, an astronomical yield is a bad sign for a stock. Since dividend yields and stock prices move in opposite directions, a high yield usually means that investors have begun to worry about the business, and driven down its stock price. However, certain types of companies, such as REITs have to pay out most of their income as dividends, so their yields will be higher than "normal." Dividends are not guaranteed; you need to... more

Mattel’s Dividends May Not Last Forever

Whether you’re a beginning investor or a near-retiree, the importance of purchasing stocks that pay dividends cannot be overstated. Not only do companies that have quarterly or annual payouts provide you with a steady stream of income, they also have the potential for capital appreciation. Simply put, dividend stocks can give your portfolio what almost no other investment can -- both income and growth. At The Motley Fool, we’re avid fans of dividends -- and not just because we like that steady stream of cash. Studies show that from 1972 to 2006, stocks in the S&P 500 that didn’t pay dividends earned an average annual return of 4.1%; dividend stocks, however, averaged a whopping 10.1% per year. That is an incredible difference -- one that you’d be crazy to not take advantage of.... more
