AGNC Investment (AGNC) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
BETHESDA, Md. , Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AGNC Investment Corp. (Nasdaq: AGNC) ("AGNC" or the "Company") announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend ...
[Editor's note: This story was previously published in June 2019. It has since been updated and republished.]Do you ever wish your dividend stocks paid out monthly rather than quarterly? For income-oriented investors who cover their monthly expenses with dividend income, it would certainly be a convenient option.Such stocks to buy actually do exist. In fact, they're more common than many investors may realize. They're also not crimped by catches and restrictions, and their underlying income is driven by very ordinary business models. They look just like their quarterly counterparts.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 8 of the Most Shorted Stocks in the Markets Right Now With that as the backdrop, here's a rundown of 10 high-yield monthly dividend stocks to buy from a variety of industries and sectors. Some are more familiar names than others, and some are bigger than others. Not all of them have been around for a great length of time either.In all ten cases, however, there's an attractive monthly payout in store for the foreseeable future. In no particular order… Capitala Finance (CPTA)Dividend Yield: 10.49%Capitala Finance (NASDAQ:CPTA) primarily provides capital to smaller companies, via a combination of loans and equity investments. Its average funding ranges between $10 million and $50 million, offering investors a chance to plug into small-company opportunities that wouldn't otherwise be availableSource: Shutterstock Capitala's strength is its diversity. It owns stakes in companies from the retailing, biotech, industrial, technology and consumer industries just to name a few. Its most recent investment was a piece of a human anatomy app company called Visible Body, which helps medical students and caregivers better understand how the human body physically fits together.More than that, Capitala Finance is yielding a hefty 10.49% right now. Stellus Capital Investment (SCM)Dividend Yield: 9.42%Also add Stellus Capital Investment (NYSE:SCM) to your list of monthly dividend stocks to scoop up if you're looking for regular monthly income.Source: Shutterstock Like Capitala Finance, Stellus is categorized as a business development company. And also like Capitala, Stellus is focused on so-called "middle market" outfits that may be too big or too risky for traditional loans but too small to raise funds by going public.Its portfolio includes food distributor GoodSource Solutions, home-health product provider Compass Health and business software outfit Valued Relationships Inc, just to name a few. * 7 A-Rated Stocks Under $10 It's arguably a little less risky than Capitala, in that most of its investment are in companies currently yielding a (very) positive EBITDA. The trade-off is a lower dividend yield. AGNC Investment (AGNC)Dividend Yield: 11.23%AGNC Investment (NASDAQ:AGNC) is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, primarily focused on the development of a mortgage portfolio.The bulk of the mortgages it owns are made by government-sponsored outfits like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It's a lower-risk approach toward driving monthly income, though still an effective one.AGNC presently yields 11.23% thanks to the stock's 10.7% slide over the last year.That pullback was largely rooted in fears that rising interest rates would crimp AGNC Investment's future cash flows, as higher interest rates are presumed to tend to crimp overall lending activity.That's only partly accurate. Higher rates can do mortgage REITs more good than harm if the underlying reason for rising rates is a strong economy. Whitestone REIT (WSR)Dividend Yield: 8.89%REITs, by the way, are pools of money that allow individuals liquid access to real estate investments that wouldn't otherwise be available to most retail investors. And a portfolio of mortgages is hardly the only way to develop a REIT.Case in point: Whitestone REIT (NYSE:WSR). Whitestone owns a portfolio of consumer-oriented real estate, primarily in more affluent neighborhoods, providing space to "ecommerce-resistant" companies like Whole Foods Market, Verizon (wireless phone service) and True Food Kitchen restaurants.It's a brilliant strategy, as its more than 3o% top-line growth from 2016 to 2018 shows. Whitestone's forward yield is approaching 9%, which isn't the highest among the monthly dividend stocks in focus, though it's a solid return relative to the risk shareholders are assuming. * 7 Stocks to Buy With Over 20% Upside From Current Levels Prospect Capital (PSEC)Dividend Yield: 11.11%It's not the biggest business development company in the world, but somehow Prospect Capital (NASDAQ:PSEC) is still one of the best known.Source: Shutterstock Its portfolio includes several familiar names like JD Power, Capstone Logistics, ACE Cash Express and video media company Cinedigm, just to name a few.It's diversity that has helped smooth out the BDC's bottom line from time to time when it might otherwise be erratic.Either way, the market and analysts may be underestimating the true potential of Prospect. The company has met or topped earnings estimates in four of its past five quarters. Between that and its trailing dividend yield of 11.11%, PSEC may be a smart risk to take. Solar Senior Capital (SUNS)Dividend Yield: 8.49%Don't let the name fool you. Solar Senior Capital (NASDAQ:SUNS) doesn't specialize in providing capital to the solar power industry.It is another business development company, and like Prospect and Capitala, it's highly diversified in terms of industry exposure.There is a noteworthy difference between Solar Senior Capital and its BDC peers, however.The organization focuses primarily on senior secured loans of privately owned middle-market companies, which better positions it to, if nothing else, preserve capital. * 7 Semiconductor Stocks to Buy for Your Inner Geek The trade-off for safety is yield. Solar Senior is only paying out 8.8% of the stock's current price as an annualized dividend. And it's been paying it, and adding to it, faithfully since 2011. Gladstone Investment (GAIN)Dividend Yield: 7.19%Gladstone Investment (NASDAQ:GAIN) is a business development company, but it's unlike most other BDCs (and unlike any other monthly dividend stocks being discussed within this list).Source: Shutterstock Whereas most of these investment companies seek to make loans, Gladstone is ultimately aiming to acquire smaller but mature companies.It's a riskier proposition, as investors have learned the hard way. The company missed its quarterly earnings estimate at the end of 2018 and shareholders have paid the price. GAIN lost about 12.4% of its value last year and missed its Q2 earnings estimate. You've gotta be cautious.There's just something compelling about the growth potential in ownership rather than merely lending. Cross Timbers Royalty Trust (CRT)Dividend Yield: 10.42%They're a relatively rare breed these days, but oil and gas royalty investments are still around and still dishing out dividend income. Cross Timbers Royalty Trust (NYSE:CRT) is one of the remaining names of the ilk.Source: Shutterstock An investment in Cross Timbers is predominantly an investment in oil and gas producing properties found in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Yes, the fluctuating price of oil and natural gas can impact the trust's bottom line, although not as much as you might think. * 7 Oversold Stocks To Buy Right Now The organization is merely plugged into the production of established and operational wells, and isn't directly taking on the expensive risk of exploration. Global Net Lease (GNL)Dividend Yield: 10.75%Global Net Lease (NYSE:GNL) is another REIT, primarily serving the commercial market.It owns properties in the United States and Europe, and rents to quality tenants like FedEx, Family Dollar and ING Bank, organizations that can not only reliably pay their rent as it comes due, but outfits that tend to stay put once they establish roots.There's a bit of a twist Global Net Lease brings to the table that allows it to juice its payout to its current yield of 10.75%, however. It also acquires much of its rental real estate through an arrangement called a sale-leaseback.In simplest terms, a sale-leaseback lets a property-owning company free up the value of real estate by selling a space it owns to a landlord like Global Net Lease, and then remain in that space as a tenant. It's a win-win scenario, as the renter enjoys a big cash infusion and Global Net Lease has a tenant already lined up. Horizon Technology Finance (HRZN)Dividend Yield: 9.92%Finally, Horizon Technology Finance (NASDAQ:HRZN) has earned a spot on a list of monthly dividend stocks to buy.As the name suggests, Horizon Technology Finance provides capital to young, upcoming technology outfits, though it doesn't cater strictly to the tech sector.It's also heavily involved in the development of life science and biotechnology companies.Its portfolio includes biotech names like AccuVein and Celsion, along with traditional tech plays like cybersecurity company Control Scan and communications technology player Xtera.Its results are as erratic as what you'd expect from major technology names, but it's worth the wild ride. Horizon's yielding 10.3% at its current price, and it has not had any sustained trouble affording its dividend payment. * The 7 Best Tech Stocks to Buy for the Second Half of 2019 As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Income investors have to be smiling right now. And the reason may be a bit shocking or counterintuitive. But those looking to score some high yielding REITs, the time to pounce could be now. The opportunity comes courtesy of the Federal Reserve. Yesterday, the Fed cut rates by 0.25 basis points.For high-yielding REITs, this cut could be a godsend.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsTo start, with rates lower, high-yielding securities become more in demand and often see their share prices rise. Investors simply can't get high income from "safe" asset classes as rates dip. That means there are plenty of total returns to be had. Secondly, REITs benefit from lower rates as it reduces their borrowing costs on mortgages and other loans. That leaves plenty of extra cash for investors to pay as increasing dividends.It's a win-win. And now could be the best chance to buy some high-yielding REITs before the Fed really starts to make its move. For those looking to boost their income, now is the time to buy. * 7 A-Rated Stocks Under $10 With the Fed cut coming, here are three high-yielding REITs to buy today. AGNC Investment Corp (AGNC)Dividend Yield: 11.10%While most people think of REITs as property owners, they do come in another flavor. And that's owning loans, mortgages and other debt tied to various properties. These mortgage REITs (mREITs) essentially own paper tied to either commercial or residential properties. Or sometimes even both. Playing in this pool is high yielder AGNC Investment Corp (NASDAQ:AGNC).AGNC invests in mortgage bonds and collateralized mortgage obligations tied to residential properties. The kicker is that the mREIT only invests in mortgage-related securities backed by government-sponsored agencies or "agency" bonds. Hence, its ticker symbol. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae backed bonds are considered safer as they either come with explicit government backing or extra requirements to get the loan written in the first place.Lower rates from the Fed are a huge win for AGNC. Mortgage REITs often borrow money at low rates and then invest them in these higher-yielding mortgage bonds. With rates now trending lower, AGNC's operating costs are decreased and provide with a larger spread of profits. As a REIT, AGNC kicks out much of that cash flow back to investors. And in this case, the stock does so monthly and yields nearly 11%.With rates falling, AGNC's dividend is getting that much stronger. That could make it a prime buy in the months ahead. Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (MPW)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 5.65%Rising healthcare and demand could be one of the biggest mega-trends in the world. A subset issue to all of that is providing locations for all those doctors, research facilities, and hospitals to operate. Those REITs that do operate in this niche can be powerful income plays and Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) could be one of the highest yielding ones at 5.67%.As its name implies, Medical Properties Trust focuses its attention on owning healthcare facilities. This includes everything from standard regional/community hospitals to more specialized acute care, ambulatory surgery and children's hospitals. Moreover, MPW is also considered a hybrid REIT. The firm owns both physical properties and provides financing or invests in loans tied to new hospital construction. That combination provides for a very nice income stream for MPW. The firm has continued to see rising FFO numbers.That FFO number could keep growing. MPW has continued to expand not only here in the U.S., but overseas as well. The REIT has added properties in the U.K., Germany and even Australia in recent years. And it just announced a big $1.75 billion acquisition that will add another 24 hospitals into its mix. That deal will be instantly accreditive to its cash flows. With rates falling, MPW will be able to make more deals at lower costs. * 8 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy for Consistent Income In the end, MPW could be a powerful high-yielding REIT to own in the quarters ahead. Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc. (SKT)Dividend Yield: 8.76%Some of the highest-yielding REITs can be found among the retail wreckage. The rise of e-commerce has hurt many brick-and-mortar retailers. This has resulted in plenty of bankruptcies and store closings across the country. For those investors that own the malls, shopping plazas, and other power centers, this has been a kick right to the head. But not all malls and shopping centers are the same. There are plenty of shopping-focused REITs that have been cast aside in the wreckage.Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (NYSE:SKT) is one such stock.For Tanger, the secret is in its operating model. SKT focuses on outlet shopping and in fact, is the largest owner/operator of such assets. The kicker is that outlet shopping tends to be more "destination shopping" in that, consumers plan and make special trips to Tanger's portfolio of 40 properties. As a result, its product mix is a bit different and the firm's properties feature a wide range of amenities. Restaurants, movie theaters, and entertainment aren't replicable via online means. This keeps luring shoppers back for the bargains.And with many of SKT's properties being in higher-income areas, people are shopping in spades and will continue to do so if rates are cut. Excluding the sale of four non-core properties last quarter, Tanger's critical FFO metric increased. Rising FFO/cash flows directly translate into higher dividends.With a nearly 9% yield, Tanger is a high-yielding REIT that has been wrongfully cast aside.Disclosure: At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt did not hold a position in any stock mentioned.
