Since you asked and I am very receptive to sharing good info...I really like Wendy's turn around story and it pays a nice dividend while you wait on a buyout by YUM, being a retired biology college professor I really am into ATHX and GALE which are on Trial III for cancer drugs. You could see a 500% return with fast track FDA approval. I am waiting to add a small position to GPT at $4.74
I have also been buying ARR, mainly for the dividend of .07 / mos. with a current yield of 18 - 19%.
This mreit has already sold off since end of April. It is now in a trading range of 4.41 - 4.55.
True, it could reduce its dividend again by .01 or .02, but the yield would still be over 12%.
Read their MB. Posters are saying it better than I can.
On this stox I'm after diviidend / yield. I don't care about total return. But total return will happen anyway when PPS goes back uo about 35 - 50%.
I'm also in every REIT there is that yields above 10% for dividend. Have about 25 stocks in this category including ARR... The correction we just had definitely did not help, but the dividend payout I get this upcoming week sure will :) The benefits of a DRIP and dollar cost averaging :P
Add HL to the two silver stoxs, EXK & SVM, you mention.
All 3 are at "cheap" prices. Today, since the price of gold is materially increasing, these 3 stoxs are increasing.
In June there was a PR about the cost to produce one ounce of 999 silver from the mine through the smelter. The article mentioned four silver companies, it did not include EXK / SVM, by company name and their indiviudual cost per ounce. It varied from $26 and change to $31 and change.
Although one would have to sit on the stox, or trade with gold's fluctuation, silver stoxs' PPS is depressed, but will not stay where it is now, when you factor in the cost of producing one ounce.
