    3 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy Today

    Retirement: It's all about one thing and that's income … replacing a steady paycheck with your savings. With that, dividend stocks have plenty of appeal for retirees. Not only can you score higher yields than bonds, but you have the ability to grow those payouts over time as well. However, dividend stocks do have one major drawback.Their payment schedules.Most dividend stocks pay on a quarterly or even semi-annual basis. And while that may not seem like a problem, for many retirees used to a monthly or bi-weekly paycheck balancing cash flows can be a hard pill to swallow. After all, your mortgage, cable bill and car payments are due each month. To that end, getting a monthly dividend could be the answer to budgeting issues.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Top S&P 500 Stocks of 2019 (So Far) Luckily, there are plenty of dividend stocks that do happen to payout monthly. Here are three of the best. Main Street Capital Corp (MAIN)Dividend Yield: 5.89%Most investors have never heard of businesses development companies (BDCs). That's a shame because they can be some of the biggest yielding stocks around. BDCs are set up as pass-through entities much like real estate investment trusts, and similarly must pay out at least 90% of their earnings as dividends. How they earn that income is by loaning cash to mid-sized firms -- companies too big to ask the local bank for a loan, but not big enough to launch a significant bond offering -- at competitive rates. The best way to really think of them is like public-private equity firms.And when it comes to BDCs, Main Street Capital (NASDAQ:MAIN) could be one of the best.MAIN has provided capital to more than 200 private companies and thanks to its underwriting and deal standards, it has been very successful at turning a big profit on those loans. Just for the first quarter of this year, MAIN has already seen its investment income rise by 10% year-over-year. Those sorts of gains have allowed the firm to become a great dividend stock since its IPO in 2007. The BDC has managed to grow its payout by 127% since then.Today, you can score a great recurring monthly dividend with a current yield of 5.89%. The best part is that MAIN's management likes to reward shareholders further with extra supplemental dividends. This allows the BDC to use excess capital if a great deal can be had or for dividends. Adding those extra payouts in, and investors are looking at closer to 7.2% yield.BDCs like MAIN provide a much-needed service to many firms. And thanks to its underwriting skill and focus on quality firms, MAIN has quickly become one heck of a dividend stock. Shaw Communications (SJR)Dividend Yield: 4.5%One sector that can be a fertile hunting ground for dividend stocks, and is also known for its stability, is the telecommunications industry. Top stocks like AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon (NYSE:VZ) are in plenty of income portfolios. The reason is easy to see. Predictable fixed costs and demand allow telcos to pay out reliably healthy dividends. The problem is T and VZ aren't monthly dividend stocks.But Canada's Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) is.Shaw remains one of Canada's largest telecoms and offers the usual bundle of services, including cable, internet and wireless phone services. It has been doing this for decades just like T and VZ here at home. And SJR has also tackled the problem of cord cutting head on. The telecom has been able to successfully convert customers to faster internet service to overcome lower cable subscriptions. This has helped boost revenues. At the same time, SJR has been one of the first movers in Canada for new 5G networks. That will give it a heads-up in bringing faster mobile internet, IoT and other applications to the nation. * 10 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy to Pay the Bills As Shaw moves forward in these areas, investors can sit back and collect a hefty monthly yield. Currently, SJR pays 4.5%. Now, that dividend will fluctuate based on changes to the U.S./Canadian dollar. However, given Shaw's stability and potential growth, it's a small price to pay for a great dividend stock. LTC Properties (LTC)Dividend Yield: 4.89%Honing in on so-called mega-trends is a great way to find dividend stocks that will stand the test of time. For monthly-dividend payer LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC) that mega-trend is the "Graying of America."Thanks to advances in medicine, lifespans are only increasing and longevity is almost assured at this point. LTC is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this fact. The firm invests in the senior housing and assisted living facility sectors of the healthcare property market. Currently, the firm owns/invests in roughly 200 properties that are right in the sweet spot for the nation's aging baby boomers. Demand for these facilities continues to grow as more seniors need aid to get along.The key is that LTC doesn't operate the facilities or even own the buildings in many cases. What it does is provide financing for owner/operators to construct and renovate their properties or it buys properties from owners in a sale-leaseback transaction. It's basically a mortgage lender that collects a monthly rent check. This position in the sector allows it to avoid some of the profitability issues that can result in senior living and assisted living facilities.It also allows for some safety and steady profits on its end. Year-over-year, LTC saw a gain in FFO for the first quarter of 2019. Steady FFO gains have allowed it to raise its dividend over 46% since 2008. Currently, LTC yields 4.89%.All in all, LTC is in the right area at the right time. And that makes it a great monthly dividend stock to own.As of this writing, Aaron Levitt did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    The Best 3 Monthly Dividend Stocks for Your Retirement

    Investing for retirement should always be focused on certainty of returns. And while dividend stocks might not appear to be an important part of building up a retirement portfolio, they do provide a better level of certainty in returns. By collecting dividends and reinvesting them, a portfolio can rise in value over time.Source: Shutterstock And in turn, when you're retired, dividends provide cash flows which can be used to fund your life in retirement.The vast number of U.S.-listed companies pay their dividends on a quarterly basis. And beyond the borders of the nation, many companies stretch out their distributions to bi-annual or even annual payments. Their argument is that only after the company's fiscal year is wrapped up should the cash crumbs be spread out to the pesky shareholders.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut 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 regularly each and every month -- often with rising levels of distributions for attractive dividend yields. And these yields work to build up a retirement portfolio more quickly through reinvestment and will later provide monthly income in the retirement years to come. * 6 Stocks Ready to Bounce on a Trade Deal 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. Because with the core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Index -- 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) -- running at 1.57%, inflation is firmly at bay for now and the foreseeable future. U.S. Inflation … What Inflation?US Core PCE Source BloombergThere are varying industries that have companies paying monthly dividends. But they tend to be in businesses that are cash cow in style that provide 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 StreetMain 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 over 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 which 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 million to $100 million 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 has been a great deal of regulatory and legislative reform 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. As a result, its efficiency ratio 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.Main Street (MAIN)The revenues and profitability fuel a rising dividend distribution which has been climbing by an average annual rate of 2.06 over the past three years. And with a monthly payout yielding an annual rate of 6%, Main Street is a great start to getting monthly dividend payouts. Triple Net WinnerEPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) which 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. Thus, less management cost as well as less risk of uncertainty over the lease term for costs of upkeep, or 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 cashflows from its portfolio of properties, which in turn supports more stable revenues for dividend payouts.EPR focuses on educational properties, entertainment facilities and resort properties and facilities.The educational properties involve locations 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 plenty of demand supporting longer-term commitments for the properties.The resorts and facilities include a variety of activities that range from major ski resorts like Camelback Mountain to 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.All in all, the properties of EPR have been increasing revenues significantly with average annual gains running at 18.51% for the past three years alone.EPR Properties (EPR)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 6.10%. and with a current yield of 5.7%, EPR is a great monthly dividend payer. The Right Retail for Monthly Dividend StocksMention 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 companies profiting in the retail space actually benefits from the surge of online shopping. That would be FedEx (NYSE:FDX) which operates thousands of stores where you can send back many of those returns from online spending sprees of American households.Then there's another retail space that gets special attention at the start of each year but carries interest all through the seasons. Gyms are always in demand, either for those who need or want to lose weight or those that want to keep the pounds 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 one of the major go-to retailers when it comes to picking up or having prescription drugs delivered. Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) is a leader among local pharmacies and 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 by 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 provide bargain buys for 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 (NASDAQ: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 Corporation (O)Realty Income is set up as a real estate investment trust (REIT) and its tenants include the above companies.Revenues are rising across the portfolio, with gains running on an average annual basis of 9.07% over the past three years alone.This supports a nice monthly dividend distribution which continues to be raised by Realty Income by an average annual rate of 4.11% over the past five years alone. And with a current dividend yield of 3.7%, it makes for a great monthly inflation-trouncing dividend payer that rounds out my collection for your retirement portfolio.Now that I've presented some of my favorite monthly dividend stocks for a retirement portfolio, perhaps you might like to see more of my market research and recommendations.

    10 High-Yield Monthly Dividend Stocks and Funds to Buy

    Monthly dividend stocks might seem like a gimmick, given that most American stocks pay out dividends quarterly. But they provide a very real service to income investors - especially those who have reached retirement.Capital gains can be fleeting, as we saw during last year's two brutal corrections, but a regular stream of dividends and interest can actually put the cash in your hands to pay the bills, whether the market goes up, down or sideways.Unfortunately, most income investments are designed remarkably poorly for their task. Bonds generally pay semiannually (twice per year). That made sense back in the days when "coupon payments" were literally based on paper coupons, but it hardly makes sense in an era in which bonds are nothing more that electronic entries. And again, most stocks pay their dividends quarterly. That's nice, but it's hardly helpful when your bills come monthly.It wouldn't be particularly prudent to make the monthly payment schedule your primary reason for buying a stock. Clearly, safety and growth prospects matter far more. But all else equal, a portfolio of monthly dividend stocks can give your portfolio a baseline of income to tide you over in those months when your bonds and regular quarterly dividend payers aren't paying.With that in mind, here are 10 solid monthly dividend stocks and funds to buy. These are also mostly high-yielding investments, ranging from 3% to 15%. SEE ALSO: 50 Top Stocks That Billionaires Love
