A Kansas water park where a 10-year-old boy was decapitated isn't hiring lifeguards, advertising or selling tickets with less than a month left before its typical Memorial Day weekend opening date, underlining speculation that it could be put up for sale. Schlitterbahn remains mum on its plans, but has largely removed reference from its website about the park in Kansas City, Kansas, where Caleb Schwab was killed in 2016 when the raft he was riding on the 17-story Verruckt slide went airborne and hit a metal pole. Verruckt — German for "crazy" — never reopened and was torn down last year.

One type of investment that many income investors like more than equities that deliver a steady flow of quarterly dividend distributions are monthly dividend stocks, asserts Ned Piplovic, income expert and editor of DividendInvestor.

When you write about investing as much as I do, sometimes it takes a little divine intervention to come up with ideas. Sometimes, I'll borrow an idea from another writer. Recently, I saw an article about dividend stocks that have already increased their quarterly payment early in 2019. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Eric Volkman, the author in question, recommended PepsiCo (NASDAQ:PEP), Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and TJX (NYSE:TJX). All Dividend Aristocrats, I like the latter two. Pepsi not so much. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, I do appreciate the inspiration. Now, on to the task at hand. I'm looking for seven dividend stocks that I'd want to own that have announced a dividend increase in the first 64 days of the year. While they don't have to be in the S&P 500, nor do they have to be a Dividend Aristocrat, they should have a market cap higher than $2 billion.To help with diversification, I'll try to get one stock for seven different sectors. I can't guarantee that will be the case, but I'll give it my best shot. * 10 High-Yield Monthly Dividend Stocks So, without further ado, here are my seven dividend stocks to own now. EPR Properties (EPR)On Jan. 16, 2019, EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) announced a 4.2% increase in its monthly cash dividend. Payable as of Feb. 15, the monthly dividend is now 37.5 cents or $4.50 on an annual basis. It is the company's ninth consecutive year increasing its dividend. In February 2018, I recommended the REIT that specializes in experiential real estate, to own in good times and bad. At the time, it was yielding 7.7%. As of Mar. 5, 2019, it's yielding 6.1%. That's because it has appreciated significantly over the past year. I've been a fan of EPR stock for a long time. I first recommended it in 2013 when it was trading in the $50s. In 2019, EPR expects to generate adjusted funds from operation (FFO) of at least $5.30 a share. With all the interesting experiential real estate it owns or is developing, I continue to believe it's a REIT to hold for the next 20 years. Fastenal (FAST)On Jan. 16, 2019, Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST) announced a 3-cent increase in its quarterly dividend. Payable as of Feb. 27, the quarterly dividend is now 43 cents or $1.72 on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 2.8%. The company first paid an annual dividend in 1991. It went to semi-annual dividends in 2003, and finally to quarterly dividends in 2011. It has also paid out special dividends in 2010 and 2012. Fastenal is a wholesale distributor of industrial and construction supplies. Although I haven't covered the company in recent years, its results from fiscal 2018 suggest it's doing just fine. In 2018, Fastenal grew revenues by 13% to $5 billion. On the bottom line, it increased earnings by 30% to $752 million. Both the company's fastener and non-fastener products experienced healthy double-digit growth in 2018. * 10 Small-Cap Stocks That Look Like Bargains CEO Daniel Florness plans to double company sales to $10 billion. That ought to happen sometime in 2024. Perhaps earlier. BlackRock (BLK)On Jan. 16, 2019, BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) announced a 5% increase in its quarterly dividend to $3.30. Payable as of Mar. 21, the quarterly dividend works out to $13.20 on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 3.0%. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink has become almost as famous for his annual letter to CEOs as he has for building the owner of iShares ETFs into a global asset management powerhouse. Fink's 2019 letter was another classic. Here's the part that stands out for me: "Companies must embrace a greater responsibility to help workers navigate retirement, lending their expertise and capacity for innovation to solve this immense global challenge. In doing so, companies will create not just a more stable and engaged workforce, but also a more economically secure population in the places where they operate," Fink stated in BlackRock's 2019 Letter to CEOs. He's not shy to say what's on his mind. Some people don't like it. I do. I believe it's what sets BlackRock apart from other asset management and financial services firms. Stand up for the little guy, and the little guy will give it his or her all for management. It's a contract Fink believes should still exist within companies. I couldn't agree more. Penske Automotive (PAG) On Jan. 30, 2019, Penske Automotive Group (NYSE:PAG) announced a 1-cent increase in its quarterly dividend to 38 cents. Payable as of Mar. 1, the quarterly dividend works out to $1.52 on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 3.4%. A penny increase in the quarterly dividend might not seem like a lot, but it adds up. That's especially true when you've increased the dividend for 31 consecutive quarters. That's not a typo. There aren't many companies that are that consistent about their dividend. Of course, would you expect any less from Roger Penske, the King of motor racing?It hasn't been smooth motoring for PAG stock over the past 26 months with negative total returns of 5.3% and 12.8% in 2017 and 2018, respectively; it's nice to see Penske stock is up almost 9% year-to-date. * 7 Dow Jones Stocks to Buy I recommended PAG stock last August as one of seven dividend growth stocks to buy. Although it has gone slightly backward since then, I see its juicy 3.4% dividend yield as an excellent check to earn while you wait for its stock to revert to the mean. Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (BIP)On Feb. 6, 2019, Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP) announced a 6.9% increase in its quarterly dividend to 50 cents. Payable as of Mar. 29, the quarterly dividend works out to $2.01 on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 5%. Google the word "infrastructure," and you get 718 million results. Without infrastructure investments, economies wither and die. President Trump ran on an impressive platform in 2016 to grow the nation's infrastructure, but very little has been done. That's because America is broke and infrastructure is a costly adventure. It's not for the faint of heart, hence the 5% dividend yield.In fiscal 2018, BIP saw funds from operations (FFO) increase by 5% to $1.23 billion. Leading the charge was its energy business, which saw FFO increase by almost 29% in the past year. A significant part of the increase was the result of the company's investment in a Canadian midstream business as well as a North American residential energy infrastructure company. Like its affiliated former parent, Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE:BAM), BIP's goal is to acquire assets at a reasonable price, get them operating both efficiently and profitably, and then sell those assets when prices are high. Then take the proceeds and do it again. Rince and repeat. Church & Dwight (CHD)On Feb. 5, 2019, Church & Dwight (NYSE:CHD) announced a 4.6% increase in its quarterly dividend to 22.75 cents. Payable as of Mar. 1, the quarterly dividend works out to 91 cents on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 1.4%. What the maker of Arm & Hammer baking soda fails to provide in terms of dividend yield, it more than makes up for it with lots of capital appreciation. Year-to-date, CHD stock is up 0.54%. Off to a slow start in 2019, Church & Dwight stock is in danger of a losing year, the first in more than a decade. Over the past ten years, CHD's delivered an annualized total return of 19.6%, 250 basis points higher than the S&P 500. * 7 Stocks That Should Be Worried About a Data Dividend That is why I believe Church & Dwight is the best consumer staples stock for investors to own for the long haul. Best Buy (BBY) On Feb. 27, 2019, Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) announced an 11% increase in its quarterly dividend to 50 cents. Payable as of April 10, the quarterly dividend works out to $2 on an annual basis. As of Mar. 5, it yielded 3%. With the 11% increase, Best Buy has now increased its annual dividend payment for six consecutive years. It has also paid a dividend for 61 straight quarters. Best Buy's past issues including its ongoing fight with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) appear to be very much in the rear window.In 2018, Best Buy grew same-store sales by 4.8%, overall revenues increased 1.7% to $42.9 billion, and earnings-per-share on a non-GAAP basis increased by 20.4% to $5.32 a share. In 2019, it expects to generate at least $5.45 a share in earnings on $42.9 billion in revenue. It might not be massive growth, but considering its shares were trading around $12 in 2012, it has come a long way. When I wrote about Best Buy in August 2013, it had online sales that accounted for 6.1% of its overall revenue. Today, it's 21.9% or almost four times as much. It's one of the best comeback stories of the 21st century. As of this writing, Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

A limited liability company tied to EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR) on Dec. 31 bought the property, at 750 N. 16th St. downtown, from International Building Co. LLC, tied to former museum CEO Dave Jump. In a separate transaction, Jump sold the City Museum business to Oklahoma City-based Premier Parks, which operates 10 theme and water parks throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The vast number of U.S.-listed stocks that pay dividends do so on a quarterly basis. Beyond the borders of the nation, many dividend-paying stocks stretch out their distributions to bi-annual or even annual payments. Their argument is that the company does its business and after their fiscal year is wrapped up -- only then should the cash crumbs be spread out to the pesky shareholders. But that's not how the folks residing in the C-Suites see it when it comes to their own remunerations. They prefer to pay themselves every so-many weeks with bonuses and other perks throughout the year. But there is a collection of companies that don't see shareholders as a burden -- but rather as the rightful owners of the company. And as such, they are paid monthly dividends -- often with rising levels of distributions for attractive dividend yields. Moreover, the dividends paid are ample, more than enough to cover the meager level of inflation in the U.S. economy. And that's a low bar. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Because with the core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Index running at 1.88% -- which measures the overall consumer spending cost changes in the U.S. economy and not just a constructed market basket like the Consumer Price Index (CPI) - inflation is firmly at bay for now and the foreseeable future. * 10 Smart Money Stocks to Buy for the Rest of the Year Click to Enlarge Source: Bloomberg And it's also worth noting that this is the measure that the Federal Reserve Bank uses for inflation measurements, which it would like to see it above 2% in a healthy economy. There are varying industries that have companies paying monthly dividends. But they tend to be in businesses that are "cash cows," providing dependable profits from which distributions can be paid. I've assembled a nice collection of companies that you can select to bump up your own portfolio's cash payouts with regular to rising monthly dividends. ### Main Street Comes to Wall Street Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) is set up as a Business Development Company (BDC), which is codified under U.S. tax law under the Small Business Investment Incentive Act of 1980. This act passed by Congress and signed by then-President Jimmy Carter came as the U.S. economy was in a pickle. Inflation was a problem and banks were reticent to lend to small to middle-market companies. They were concerned about the inflation risk of fixed lending facilities as well as the underlying credit risks in the business sector. The result is that the Act extended the Investment Companies Act of 1940 that enabled non-bank companies to be formed that would be largely exempt from corporate income taxes if they made loans and equity participation investments in small- to middle-market companies. Therefore, they would be passthrough securities with investors getting paid the majority of profits that could also come with passthrough tax deductions to shield their individual current income tax liabilities. Main Street makes loans with some additional equity participation to companies in the $10 to $100 million dollar revenue range. This is exactly what the U.S. market needs as many of the traditional middle-market commercial bank lenders have largely been sidelined thanks to onerous regulatory and capital rules stemming from legislative and administrative responses to the post 2007-2008 financial mess. And while there's been a great deal of regulatory and legislative reforms during 2018, many of the skilled lender talent has left traditional banks and, in turn, they've been found in Main Street and other non-bank lenders. Main Street gets to make loans with less regulatory and compliance costs. The result is that its efficiency ratio (a prime measure of the cost to earn each dollar of revenue is a fraction of middle-market lending banks. This means that its costs are lower and profitability is much higher. Revenues are rising with gains running at an annual basis of 13.49% on average over the past three years. The revenues and profitability fuel a rising dividend distribution, which has been climbing by an average annual rate of 4.06 over the past five years. And with a monthly payout yielding 6.41% Main Street is a great start to getting monthly dividend payouts. ### A Triple Net Winner EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that focuses on a very risk-controlled and efficient way to profit from real estate assets known as longer-term, triple net leases. Triple net leases are leases that are made to corporate tenants that are not only responsible for lease payments but also for taxes, insurance and general maintenance -- hence the term "triple". This means that EPR acquires properties that have little additional costs over their leased lifespans. This means less management cost as well as less risk of uncertainty over the lease term for costs to keep up the properties as well as risks of higher taxes or changes in insurance costs. The benefits of this means that EPR can run more efficiently in its operations with lower provisions for cost challenges for its portfolio of properties. This means more certainty in cash flows from its portfolio of properties, which in turn supports more stable revenues for monthly dividend payouts. EPR focuses on educational properties, entertainment facilities and resort properties and facilities. So that kids are educated and they, in turn, can be entertained with family members either locally or on holidays. The educational properties involve those that are contracted by early educational centers as well as charter schools and private schools. These provide stable reliable tenants that commit to long-term leases that are likely to be renewed to attract and keep their student populations. The entertainment facilities are largely leased to movie megaplex theaters from national and international chains with ample branding. These are in major markets with ample demand supporting longer-term commitments for the properties. The resorts and facilities include a variety of activities that range from major ski resorts including Camelback Mountain as well as golf courses and resorts including from operator, TopGolf. And EPR also owns a collection of water parks in prime locations. All of these benefit from the consumer trend of experience spending, which supports longer-term commitments from the operators of the properties and facilities. * 7 S&P 500 Stocks That Need a New CEO All in all, the properties of EPR have been increasing revenues significantly with average annual gains running at 14.37% for the past three years alone. The triple net leases from the properties with longer-term leases continue to support significant dividend distributions. The distributions continue to rise by an average annual basis of 6.28%. And with a current yield of 6.21%, EPR is a great monthly dividend payer. ### The Right Retail Mention retailers and many investors will think that they are doomed by the likes of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and other online behemoths. But not all retail can be replaced by a website and a few clicks. In fact, one of the more pervasive of retail space in nearly every significant city and town in America actually benefits from the surge of online shopping. That would be FedEx (NYSE:FDX), which operates thousands of stores that provide the ability to send back many of those returns from online spending sprees of American households. Then there's another retail space that gets attention each year at the start of the year and continues through the months until year-end. Gyms are always in demand. Either for those that need or want to lose extra pounds or those that want to keep them off while staying in better health -- gyms are a reliable part of the American retail space. And one of the leaders in this retail market space is LA Fitness. Then we have the company that is one of the major go-to retailers when it comes to picking up or having prescription drugs delivered. Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) is one of the leaders in local pharmacies that is also a prime place to visit to pick up last minute items for health, beauty, food and household goods that just can't always be fulfilled by the online space even Amazon's Amazon Now. And one of the other prime retail spaces that's also a defense against online vendors is the super-discounted dollar stores. These stores are found in urban, suburban and rural areas where they provide bargain buys that are made by all kinds of consumers on a regular basis. They tend to have sticky and reliable customers making for good retail space. And two of the leaders include Dollar General (NYSE:DG) and Family Dollar (NYSE:DLTR). What do the five companies all have in common? They are all long-term triple-net lease customers of Realty Income Corporation (NYSE:O). Realty Income is set up as a real estate investment trust (REIT) which has its top tenants represented by the above companies amongst its thousands of properties across the American marketplace. Revenues are rising across the portfolio with gains running on an average annual basis of 9.21% over the past three years alone. This supports a nice monthly dividend distribution that continues to be raised by Realty Income by an average annual rate of 3.92% over the past five years alone. With a current dividend yield of 4.07%, O stock makes for a great inflation-trouncing monthly dividend-payer and rounds out my collection for your portfolio.
