Most dividend-paying companies pay shareholders once per quarter. Investors relying on this type of payment schedule may find they are lacking income in the months they don't receive dividends. Fortunately, there are several options for investors looking for a monthly dividend payment.
Stocks that offer monthly dividends allow investors to achieve regular cash flows. It should be noted that high yields can be a sign a dividend is likely to be cut. Paying a high yield often requires companies to have a high payout ratio. If the company's business underperforms, it could be forced to cut its dividend. High-yielding companies such as these should only be owned by investors with a higher risk tolerance.
