The only type of investment that income investors like more than equities that deliver a steady flow of quarterly dividend distributions are monthly dividend stocks, suggests Ned Piplovic, income specialist and editor of DividendInvestor.
A whopping number of 13F filings filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been processed by Insider Monkey so that individual investors can look at the overall hedge fund sentiment towards the stocks included in their watchlists. These freshly-submitted public filings disclose money managers’ equity positions as of the end of the three-month period […]
[Editor's note: "8 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy for Consistent Income" was previously published in July 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]With so much uncertainty weighing on key economic metrics -- most notably the U.S.-China trade war -- the idea of buying dividend stocks is an attractive one. Primarily, as passive-income generating securities, dividend-bearers are likely to weather volatility better than stocks that don't offer payouts. Plus, any capital returns are bonuses on top of the yield.Source: Shutterstock However, dividend stocks typically have one glaring weakness, especially for those who depend on stocks for income: their payouts occur on a quarterly basis. That's not particularly helpful when our society revolves around monthly cost expenditures, such as mortgages, car payments, and utility bills. And that's one of the reasons why monthly dividend stocks are so attractive.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsUnder this arrangement, you're receiving income 12 times a year as opposed to the usual four times. Because money has a time component to it, monthly dividend stocks allow investors much more flexibility. Also, if you like to reinvest dividends into more shares of the target asset, a monthly schedule allows you to advantage technical dynamics, such as a pricing dip. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock That said, conservative investors should adopt the same precautions toward monthly dividend stocks as you would any income-generating investment. For instance, you should never jump aboard a company or fund merely because they pay out monthly. The key here is healthy cash flows and robust, stable sectors.At the same time, monthly dividend stocks offer speculators a reason to join in on the fun. With payouts every 30 days, sometimes risky, high-yielding names offer compelling opportunities. Of course, that depends on your personal tolerance to volatility.And with these cautionary notes out of the way, here are the eight best monthly dividend stocks to consider in 2019: LTC Properties (LTC)Source: Shutterstock When it comes to boring sectors as I mentioned above, I can't think of anything more sleep-inducing than senior care. At the same time, I can't think of anything more robust and relevant than the senior care market. That's why investors ought to take a long look at LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC) and LTC stock.As a viable name among monthly dividend stocks, LTC Properties utilizes a powerful tool as leverage: demographics. Baby Boomers are retiring in droves, which present serious challenges. But they also present opportunities. Increasingly, millennials are taking care of their aging family members, indirectly bolstering the case for LTC stock. That's because a senior may not have adequate funds, but a working millennial might.Furthermore, LTC stock has steadily trekked higher since the collapse of the 2000 tech bubble. Given the demographic tailwinds, I expect this longer-term trend to continue. Main Street Capital Corporation (MAIN)Source: Shutterstock Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) is what experts refer to as a business development company. In this case, Main Street provides debt and equity financing to small and mid-tier private organizations. With a broad range of services, they're able to help scale businesses as their output expands.And supporting the case for MAIN stock is the current entrepreneurial environment. With the advent of e-commerce technologies, and the digitalization of everything, there's never been a better time than now to start a business. Moreover, the efficiencies inherent in smaller and more nimble organizations allow them to disrupt larger entities. Again, this supports the capital gains narrative for MAIN stock. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Just as importantly, the underlying company has a track record for delivering the goods under pressure. For instance, Main Street first offered MAIN stock to the public in 2007. While incurring volatility during the financial crisis, shares fought back. Today, it pays out a healthy dividend monthly that yields nearly 6%. Realty Income (O)Source: Shutterstock Whenever discussions about monthly dividend stocks come about, it's almost inevitable that you'll hear the name Realty Income (NYSE:O). And that's for good reason. Although a boring name, strong and consistent cash flows back up O stock. Obviously, this is critical for a company paying out monthly; after all, the money for dividends has to come from somewhere!But O stock has two reasons why it's especially relevant at this juncture. First, the Federal Reserve is likely to lower interest rates despite robust domestic economic metrics. Global economies don't necessarily share the same optimism as the U.S. Furthermore, the Fed is determined to learn the lessons that led to the disastrous 2008 financial crisis. Thus, investors seeking substantive yields will probably gravitate toward investments like O stock.Second, many of the commercial properties that Realty Income owns feature retailers who have competitive or natural moats against e-commerce threats like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). For example, Home Depot (NYSE:HD) customers like to see and test out their prospective products. You simply don't get that convenience from online channels. And this dynamic should keep the rent money flowing into O stock, which bolsters the dividend payout. Shaw Communications (SJR)Source: Shutterstock Canadian cable company Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) is another name that frequently pops up among recommended monthly dividend stocks. It's not hard to see why. Currently, SJR stock has a dividend yield of 4.5%. Shares have also gained over 10% since January's opening price.More importantly, SJR stock should prove to be incredibly relevant in the years ahead. While cable is a dying industry due to the streaming revolution, Shaw levers a wireless subsidiary called Freedom Mobile Inc. And in April of this year, Freedom substantially expanded its wireless footprint in the Canadian market. This move improves Freedom's LTE service and lays the groundwork for the upcoming 5G rollout. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Finally, Shaw is a name that delivers a consistent revenue and earnings stream. As a result, it generally features reliable free cash flow -- which is key for stocks that pay out monthly. And while cord cutting hurts SJR stock in the nearer-term, I believe its spectrum coverage will outweigh these concerns. Pembina Pipeline (PBA)In years past, the oil market used to be a no-brainer: we consume energy and therefore we need energy. However, rising global supplies have depressed prices, making this sector a tough call. But infrastructural plays like Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) typically offer stability.No matter what happens in the underlying market, transportation of energy-related commodities is vital. In recent years, this dynamic supported the bullish case for PBA stock.Still, some risks cloud the narrative for PBA stock. First, shares have done well this year, moving up 21% year-to-date. But the equity has demonstrated some notable volatility in recent sessions. Thus, prospective buyers may want to wait a little before pulling the trigger.Further, Pembina doesn't have the greatest balance sheet. With a total debt to total equity ratio of 63, I wouldn't go all in on PBA stock. That said, energy remains a viable long-term play due to the uncertainties of renewable alternatives. Therefore, Pembina is among the riskier monthly dividend stocks that nonetheless deserves a careful look. Colony Credit Real Estate (CLNC)For those who are interested in higher stakes -- and of course, higher yields -- you should check out Colony Credit Real Estate (NYSE:CLNC). CLNC stock provides shareholders exposure to the world of commercial real estate credit REITs, or real estate investment trusts. Essentially, the company finances and manages commercial real estate debt.Now, I must give you some cautionary notes for CLNC stock. First, shares have not enjoyed the greatest time since its introduction in early 2018. A massive collapse in November of last year, along with the rest of the markets, has not inspired confidence.Also, as a commercial debt investor, Colony Credit faces turbulence from a possible downturn in the economy. With most folks talking about at least a correction coming up, CLNC stock is only for the risk tolerant. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock However, shares have stabilized this year and has recently inched forward. Plus, with a yield of 12%, CLNC is one of the monthly dividend stocks that will consistently draw eyeballs. Armour Residential REIT (ARR)If you want another high-stakes REIT among monthly dividend stocks, but with a residential angle, consider Armour Residental REIT (NYSE:ARR). ARR stock gives you exposure to mortgage-backed securities which are backed by a federal entity, such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.Of course, whenever anyone hears the term mortgage-backed securities, the last housing crisis comes immediately to mind. Certainly, no investment is foolproof and that should give you pause before diving into ARR stock.On the flipside, both the government and the mortgage industry have taken the lessons of the last decade to heart. Today, it's very difficult to quality for a mortgage unless you've got your financial house in order. Additionally, homeowners themselves have learned not to overextend themselves. Thus, this environment helps bring some confidence toward ARR stock.Lastly, Armour Residential has a history of consistently rich monthly payouts going back to 2015. But I wouldn't get too comfortable as the payouts have declined in value over this time. Also, ARR stock is down nearly 18% YTD. All that said, if you're willing to assume the risk, Armour is an interesting play due to the current economic resiliency. Mesa Royalty Trust (MTR)Source: Shutterstock A far riskier counterpart to Pembina Pipeline, Mesa Royalty Trust (NYSE:MTR) is truly an investment only for the hardened speculator. From the get-go, MTR stock screams caution.Let's start with the obvious. Mesa Royalty distinguishes itself from the other monthly dividend stocks on this list because the company doesn't own anything. Instead, it has an interest in oil and natural gas projects dispersed throughout the U.S. Basically, the dividend from MTR stock represents a share of the spoils from the facilities' output.This leads to my next concern about MTR stock: volatility. I'm not just talking about the share price, which historically is terrible. The payout fluctuates like mad. Needless to say, Mesa Royalty will not belong on a list of stable dividend stocks anytime soon. * 7 Reasons to Buy Canopy Growth Stock Still, the company offers the prospect of a big payday that could arrive at any month. For instance, earlier in March, Mesa paid out nearly 19 cents for each share of MTR stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Every industry has its disruptors. The old and established leaders get comfortable doing things the same way -- it has worked for decades, so why change? Sometimes disruptors come with new ideas and approaches. Other times they have new technologies that can range from an app to a completely new means of operating.Source: Shutterstock One example that I use on a daily basis involves artificial intelligence (AI). I have a Bloomberg Terminal, which is a vital tool for pulling all sorts of data and information on any economy or market as well as any stock, bond or other security. It also comes with over 2,700 journalists around the globe that are generating news and other stories each and every day. But interestingly, Bloomberg has adopted AI which combs news releases and economic data releases. Then its army of robotic writers create an increasing percentage of its posted stories.There shouldn't be anything subjective in the robotic writing, but you never know how this will develop. By the way, I am not a robot.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips AI and Fintech StocksBanking is getting it worse. Financial technology (Fintech) companies continue to roll out non-bank payment, loan and deposit apps. These are increasingly making consumer banking with traditional banks less necessary, if not more costly. And even mortgages can be applied for or refinanced via apps.This has led many newer stocks to grab investor attention, including Square (NYSE:SQ) with its alternative mobile payment and point-of-sale services. It many be gathering new adopters, with revenue up over the trailing year by 49%, but it has negative operating margins running at -1.1% which in turn is delivering a loss on shareholder equity of -4.7%. * 7 Deeply Discounted Energy Stocks to Buy And dividends? Not with Square's cash burn. No wonder that in the trailing year, insiders have been reporting millions upon millions of shares sold, not bought. Bad indicator.Then there's Fiserv (NASDAQ:FISV) stock, which provides behind-the-scenes services and systems to alt-financial fintech companies. This company is a bit more responsible, with operating margins running at 30.1% which in turn is helping the return on equity to reach a current 35.6%. But its sales are anemic, with gains over the trailing year of only 2.2%.And it doesn't have much cash on hand, putting it in credit jeopardy in the short term. And the stock is valued at 16.4 times its book value which is has actually dropped by 42.6% to a current value of $6.48 per share from where it stood back in 2017.Again, no wonder that over the trailing year, that there were 20 sellers in management and the board -- again not a vote of confidence. And dividends? Not with the cash trouble and short-term credit woes. Instead, twice in the past 10 years, Fiserv has had to do two reverse 2 for 1 splits to keep the stock price up to avoid regulatory and market scrutiny. Better Alt-Financials With Better FintechFintech might be a good disrupter for beating traditional banks, but it's not so rewarding for investors -- especially without dividend income.But what is really beating banks comes from three obscure bits of Congressional legislation: The Investment Companies Act of 1940, The Small Business Investment Incentive Act of 1980 and The Cigar Excise Tax Extension Act of 1960.The Investment Companies Act established holding companies and funds, which allowed companies to own financial assets beyond just plant and equipment like operating companies. The Small Business Investment Incentives Act provided companies beyond banks to lend and own loans and other financing instruments from public and private companies, which brought needed loans to a stifled banking market. And the Cigar Excise Tax Extension Act had embedded in it the legal and tax structure which enabled real estate investment trusts (REITs). Business Development CompaniesBack in the late 1970's, inflation was out of control, driving interest rates to the moon and driving banks to be reticent about lending. So, the 1980 legislation allowed non-banks to operate as investment companies which could make loans and invest in loans. This began what is largely known as Business Development Companies (BDCs), which also do not have to pay traditional corporate income taxes.BDCs have been a very successful business model over the past many years. Banks have been strangled with low interest rates, which limit their net interest margins (NIM). This margin is the difference between what they pay in deposits against what they earn from loans. And regulations post 2007-2008 have stifled them with costly compliance. Even with relief over the past three years, much still needs to be done to unburden banks.Better than Banks: MVIS BDC Index Total Return Source MVIS & BloombergBDCs are outside much regulatory purviews and they don't do deposits. And lower interest rates enable them to fund themselves at lower rates through various non-banking means such as the bond and credit markets. And it shows in the performance of the MVIS BDC Index generating a return year to date of 21.53% including an average trailing tax-advantaged dividend yield of 9.72%.Moreover, BDCs also participate in the business loan market. And while there can be some shadows in this part of the credit market, the well-run and well-capitalized companies can participate in senior loans, which BDCs can participate in for their portfolio assets.Senior Loan Debt Index Source Palmer Square & BloombergSenior loans continue to perform well, even with some pullbacks. Such was the case with a drop in liquidity during the closing weeks of last year.In the model portfolios of my Profitable Investing, I have a great BDC in Hercules Capital (NYSE:HTGC). Hercules is based in Palo Alto, California, with offices around the nation. It focuses on working with technology companies and has a good track record of financing startups through to become bold-faced names in the tech market. It makes loans and provides other financing and also takes equity participation in its portfolio companies. It then works with them like bankers used to do by guiding them along to an exit strategy of being bought or through an IPO.Net interest margin (NIM) is ample at 8.9% and the efficiency ratio is good at 52.5% (the lower the ratio, the greater the profitability). Revenues are up 8.8% for the trailing year and it feeds a nice annual dividend stream including regular special distributions yielding 10.1%.The Profitable Investing portfolio also has Main Street Capital (NYSE:MAIN). This BDC focuses on more mundane small-to-middle-market companies with lending and other financing. It has wide financial margin and an efficiency ratio of an amazing 8.2%. and it pays an annual dividend, including regular special distributions, yielding 6.7%.Then there is my recommended TPG Specialty Lending (NYSE:TSLX). This company provides financing and capital to a variety of companies, including loan assets in its portfolio. Part of the famous TPG Capital formally called Texas Pacific Group which is one of the largest and more successful private equity firms in the world -- TPG Specialty draws great talent and resources from its affiliate.Revenues are up on a tear with the trailing year climbing by 24.2%. Its NIM is running at 10% and it keeps its efficiency ratio humming at a profitable 31.5%.TPG Specialty Lending (TSLX) Longer Term Total Return Source BloombergThe company has generated a return of 87.8% over the trailing five years for an average annual equivalent of 13.4%.It pays regular dividends quarterly, providing a yield of 7.5%. But it also regularly pays additional dividends from ongoing profits throughout the year for a current annual yield of 8.8%. Another Proven Bank DisruptorBanks used to be big in the mortgage business. That has been changing, particular post-2007-2008. Now others are in the market to originate and own mortgages. Inside my model portfolios of Profitable Investing, I have MFA Financial (NYSE:MFA) which is structured as a REIT under the Cigar Excise legislation noted above. MFA owns and runs a mortgage portfolio which in turn fuels an ample dividend yielding 11%. And it has proven itself to work during times of adversary including doing pretty well in the midst of the 2007-2008 financial crisis.Over the past 10 years, MFA has delivered a return of 213.48% for an average annual equivalent of 12.09%. Buy it in a taxable account as 20% of its dividends qualify as deductible from income tax liabilities thanks to the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017, making the payout distributions even more attractive after taxes.And now that I've presented my alternative Alt-Financials for more dividends and price gains, perhaps you might like to see more of my market research and recommendations for further safer growth and bigger reliable income.

The market for business development companies (BDCs) just got a little more institutional.For those of you unfamiliar with BDCs, here's a quick primer. Business development companies provide firms with debt and equity capital, or a combination of the two, to help them grow. They first came to be in 1980 when Congress passed an amendment to the Investment Act of 1940 that created a new category of closed-end investment company: BDCs.For tax purposes, BDCs must pay out 90% or more of their taxable income in the form of dividends so they can retain the tax benefits of regulated investment companies.BDCs have become popular with retail investors over the past decade because of the significant income they generate. These companies often yield more than 8% on their distributions.Consider this: BDC Owl Rock Capital Corporation (ORCC) sold 10 million shares to investors during its initial public offering on July 18, 2019. This IPO is important because Owl Rock Capital Partners, who operate the BDC, founded it in 2016 with the sole purpose of meeting the needs of institutional investors. Since its founding three years ago, Owl Rock has raised more than $5.5 billion from pension funds, university endowments, family offices and other high-net-worth investment vehicles. And when institutional-caliber investors get involved, it's time to take notice.Here are 10 BDCs to consider for your investment portfolio. Just remember: Their uber-high yields come with some measure of risk. Many use debt leverage to generate their strong returns, which is risky in the first place and adds interest-rate risk into the picture. Also, the companies they invest in typically have a higher chance of default than larger corporations. But for those willing to take the risks, these 10 BDCs yield between 5.7% and 10.9%.
