For those investors in retirement, it all comes down to income. How can you convert your lifetime of savings into a steady stream of paychecks? There's plenty of ways to do that. But one of the best continues to dividend stocks. After all, dividend stocks generally offer higher yields than bonds and give you the ability to see your income rise through increasing dividend payouts as well as grow thanks to capital appreciation. Bonds, CDs, and other traditional fixed income products can't do that.The only problem is, not all dividend stocks are worthy for retirees.Those investors in retirement can't afford to see their payouts get cut or see their capital go up in flames. There's simply not enough time to recoup losses or balance out volatility. To this end, it takes a certain variety of dividend stocks to get you through your golden years. A focus on quality is key.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth Which dividend stocks make the grade for retirement? Here are five dividends stocks that are perfect for retirement portfolios. Snap-on (SNA)Source: Snap-On via Wikimedia (Modified)Dividend Yield: 2.43%Selling screwdrivers, wrenches and other hand tools may not seem that exciting, but this niche has helped make Snap-On Incorporated (NYSE:SNA) one of the best dividend stocks around.SNA manufactures a variety of tools, equipment, and repair information systems for various industrial markets. Many professional mechanics and assembly workers swear by Snap-on's better-made products. And with a simple socket wrench set costing north of $300, SNA isn't exactly going after DIY and weekend warriors here. You need high-performance when you're fixing a bullet train or repairing a wind turbine.This focus on the industrial market has widely insulated SNA from the whims of the consumer market. Because of this, SNA has paid dividends without interruptions or reductions since 1939. Its last increase was a strong 15.85% jump.Part of that jump comes from the reduction in corporate taxes. The other continues to be Snap-On's moves into higher-margined tech products. Modern machinery is chock-full of computers and sensors. SNA is quickly becoming the standard provider for computer-based diagnostics equipment. This has provided a supercharger to its earnings in recent years. EPS surged 12.6% year-over-year in 2018.All in all, Snap-On's continued leadership position in its niche market continues to pay benefits. That makes it one of the best dividend stocks for retirees. Becton Dickinson and Co (BDX)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 1.25%Admittingly, the headline yield on Becton Dickinson and Co (NYSE:BDX) isn't much to write home about. BDX's current yield of 1.25% is about what you can earn from a savings account these days. However, the story at the medical device maker is one of payout growth. This why retirees should include BDX in their portfolio of dividend stocks.BDX is one of the world's largest producers of needles, syringes, and other sharps-related devices. This catalog of products spans everything from "basics" like insulin needles and catheters to more advanced regional anesthesia and drug delivery products. The beauty is that the bulk of these items are designed to be single use. That means your doctor and hospital has to come back every month to get more of them. Becton's integration of rival Bard has only expanded on this catalog as well.This, plus moves into life science products and more high-tech drug delivery medical devices, has continued to make BDX a cash flow machine. The firm has used that cash flow to reward shareholders by paying down the debt used to buy Bard as well as increase its dividend and conduct buybacks. Over the last decade, Becton has managed to double its dividend based on its strong cash flows. Given its strengths, there's a good chance that BDX will keep that streak going. * 5 Wonderful REITs to Buy Today For retirees, BDX stock offers a chance to grow their income over the long haul. Home Depot Inc. (HD)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 2.66%It's no secret that retail has been a blood bath. Online shopping has continued to hit many traditional brick and mortar retailers hard. Empty storefronts and dead shopping malls are quickly becoming the norm. But just don't tell that to Home Depot (NYSE:HD). The home improvement retailer is killing it and has proved that its a top dividend stock. Retirees should take notice.Much of HD's recent success comes from its moves into omnichannel retailing. Consumers these days what to buy products when and how they what them. They want them in-store, online, via mobile apps, etc. Home Depot seems to have cracked the code. Spending on technology and beefing-up its operations have worked and customers keep hitting up HD for their home improvement needs. Sales grew nearly 11% last quarter to reach a whopping $26.5 billion based on its omnichannel moves.HD has clearly gotten the message about the changing face of retail.Keeping that going into the future and helping pad its dividend is that HD has also figured out how to attract Millennial and younger customers. Thanks to new classes, videos, and DIY help, Home Depot has continued to attract the customers of tomorrow. That's a demographic that many other retailers are struggling to court.With its strong growth, HD recently was able to increase its dividend by 32% and conduct more than $15 billion in buybacks. Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 1.25%Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is proving that old school tech can still be a fertile ground for finding dividend stocks -- especially those for retirees. The key has been CEO's Satya Nadella vision to transform Mr. Softy into a software as a service (SaaS) company and reap plenty of reoccurring/subscription revenues.Today, the cloud rules the roost at MSFT. Microsoft's Azure and Dynamics 365 platforms are quickly becoming the standards for many enterprise customers. Growing by double-digits, MSFT has been able to reap plenty of earnings/cash flows from its new cloud model. Better still, is that MSFT has been able to turn that cloud model toward regular Joes as well. Office 365, as well as its Xbox gaming/entertainment units, are also seeing plenty of growth. Total revenues for MSFT jumped by 12% last quarter on the strength of its cloud operations.All of this continues to translate into plenty of profits and growing cash balance. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm And MSFT continues to share those profits with investors. Since 2010, the tech firm has managed to grow its payout by over 253%. That's very impressive. And given its huge cash balance, strong cash flows and high margins, there's a good chance that Microsoft will keep that streak going. For retirees, that makes MSFT one of the best dividend stocks to own for the long haul. Realty Income (O)Dividend Yield: 3.80%When your corporate tag line is the "Monthly Dividend Company," there's a lot of pressure to keep to live up to that promise. Luckily for Realty Income (NYSE:O) it has been able to keep that promise for over 584 consecutive months.That steadfastness of payouts comes from Realty Income's business model. O is one of the largest owners of freestanding real estate in the country -- with more than 5.700 different properties under its wing. Freestanding real state includes everything from convenience stores and restaurants to movie theaters, and automotive parts/services centers. It's the standard fare that dots our suburban landscape. With nearly 500 different tenants and its huge swath of property, O provides unmatched diversification.As if O couldn't get any better, the vast bulk of these properties are so-called triple-net leased. This means the tenants are responsible for taxes, maintenance and other costs related to the property. This allows Realty Income to keep more of its rent checks.Well, not keep. O has been rewarding shareholders for decades. It's latest increase represents its 101st monthly jump to its payout. This follows its 100th increase back in January. A monthly check that keeps growing? If that's not the perfect stock for a retiree, then I don't know what is.With a 3,8% yield, conservative balance sheet and monthly payouts, Realty Income could be a perfect dividend stock for a retirement portfolio.Disclosure: At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt did not hold a position in any of the stocks mentioned.

Everything you think you know about REITs? Forget it before you put Realty Income (NYSE:O) under the microscope. Realty Income stock is far less subject changes in interest rates than most investors care to believe, and much more of a sentiment-driven trading vehicle than most investors care to concede.Source: Yuriy Trubitsyn via UnsplashTo that end, now would be a good time to take profits on Realty Income stock if you're long, and if you're daring enough, perhaps even short it.That's a counterintuitive strategy for students of what makes the market tick. Rising rates are supposed to work against real estate investment trusts by increasing the cost of capital, while falling or stagnant interest rates help make and keep money cheap.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsRight now the Federal Reserve seems mostly ready to let rates stand pat, with some whispers of a rate-cut circulating in the market's ether. That's supposed to be good for REITs.In the real world though, we've rarely seen that relationship hold up. In the real world, Realty Income is uncomfortably vulnerable here. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives Right REITOn paper, it shouldn't have happened. But it did. Against a backdrop of steady rate increases over the course of last year, Realty Income stock rallied from an early-2018 low near $47 to a high-near $74 just a couple of weeks ago. That's a 57% gain.Why didn't the Fed's four rate-hikes deflate the rally? Because there's far more to the matter than mere interest rates. Many investors get the market's easy stuff. Earnings growth is good. Bear markets are bad. Diversity staves off volatility.Not all investors can fully process multi-faceted and sometimes arbitrary pressures on a stock though. Realty Income is one of those names with a lot of moving parts.Chief among them is the fact that it rents space to some of the world's most recognized and reliable companies. Its top tenants include Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA), FedEx (NYSE:FDX) and Dollar General (NYSE:DG). Those companies may ebb and flow, but for the most part they're not going anyway. And, unlike 2008's subprime mortgage meltdown, the underlying assets that make up realty income aren't quite as subject to an implosion as on over-mortgaged home is.If nothing else, Realty Income has been and always will be at least reasonably dependable.There's a much bigger (albeit related) tailwind that's boosted the O stock price far more than rising rates have worked against it, however. That is, the solid economic growth that inspired last year's quartet of interest rate increases in the first place. Wrong TimeWhile the tariff war, in addition to a long-lived government shutdown, has dialed back the impressive and consistent GDP growth, it still is growth.After soaring to a pace of more than 2.0% in the latter half of 2017 and racing to annualized growth of 4.2% in the second quarter of 2018, Corporate America was humming. Corporate profits reached record levels during the third quarter of last year, prompting investment in more growth and the leasing of new profit centers.Realty Income had no trouble finding and keeping consumer-facing tenants, boasting an occupancy rate of 98.6%. It was able to raise its average rental prices as well. Economic strength mattered more than rising interest rates, pushing shares upward.The backdrop is changing now though, for fundamental as well as psychological reasons. Fundamentally, the economy may still be on a reasonably firm footing, but growth rates are undeniably slowing. International trade friction is very real, and the year-over-year comps translate into tougher comparisons.In the meantime, Q4's GDP growth was pared back to match multi-year lows near 2.2%. It's not bad, but it's certainly not red hot. There's also no particular reason to suspect growth will turn red-hot again anytime soon.Psychologically, investors may be starting to realize they got a little ahead of themselves with Realty Income last year. It's not the first time it's happened either. The weekly chart tells the tale. This REIT is really good at rallying for prolonged periods, but that rally is always unwound in a big way.The relative slowdown in the very economic growth that catapulted Realty Income stock last year, will serve as the bearish fodder the market needs now that shares are uncomfortably overextended. Bottom Line for Realty Income StockThe great irony is, none of the stock's past rises and falls nor any of its future gains and losses will actually be a full reflection of the REIT's results. Revenue, operating income and funds from operations are all quite steady, and the real estate investment trust recently announced its 101st dividend increase.It's been a picture of consistency and reliability. The big swings of the O stock price are largely prompted by traders' ever-changing perception.Nevertheless, if that's the game most investors are playing, then that's the game would-be buyers have to play too. Anyone interested may want to let some of the froth burn off first. It could take a while to gauge the true strength of the economy here anyway.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The stock market's robust 14.7% gain thus far in 2019, as measured by the S&P 500 Index (SPX) at today's open, has lifted a large number of stocks, and many investors forecast more gains as the economy strengthens. Goldman Sachs says, "real GDP growth will rebound to 3.0% in 2Q from the 0.7% pace in 1Q that encompasses the 34-day federal government shutdown," according to the firm's latest US Weekly Kickstart report. Goldman's latest US Quarterly Chartbook report identifies 40 stocks that their analysts expect to fall significantly, with these six topping the list with declines of nearly 20% or more: Juniper Networks Inc.

[Editor's note: This article was previously published in January 2019. It has been updated and republished.]Most dividend stocks pay their shareholders quarterly, but a few dividend-yielding stocks offer monthly distributions. The group is small: less than 100, with many of the offerings being exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or closed-end actively managed funds. And so investors looking for monthly dividend stocks to buy are limiting their universe quite a bit.And there are quite a few attractive dividend-yielding stocks that pay out monthly. Several offer compelling cases for both their upside and safe dividends, with attributes that go beyond simply the timing of their distributions.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Marijuana Stocks to Play the CBD Trend These six stocks all fit that bill, offering not only monthly dividends but potential share price appreciation and reasonable payout ratios. Realty Income (O)Realty Income (NYSE:O) is the best-known of the monthly dividend payers, to the point that it has trademarked the slogan "The Monthly Dividend Company."In terms of past performance, the monthly payouts have been just the cherry on top of a delicious sundae. O stock has returned -- including dividends -- an average of 15.8% annually since 1994, according to a recent investor presentation. It has been one of the best-performing real estate investment trusts in the market over that stretch.O stock has become much more expensive over the past few months, bouncing more than 19% from February lows. But there's still a nice bull case at the moment. O yields a bit over 3.7%,The portfolio looks both safe and nicely diversified, with Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) and FedEx (NYSE:FDX) being its two largest tenants. Considering Realty Income's track record, it's worth staying long.Source: Shutterstock LTC Properties (LTC)Like Realty Income, senior housing and healthcare property REIT LTC Properties (NYSE:LTC) has bounced nicely off recent lows. And like with O stock, there's still a solid bull case for LTC even after recent gains.With the "baby boom" generation aging, demand should stay strong. Meanwhile, LTC still yields 5.06%, though growth has been below that of most dividend-yielding stocks (it has been held flat for about two years now). * 7 Beaten-Up Stocks to Buy as They Reverse Course There are some risks here: investors are concerned that changing healthcare insurance reimbursement policies will impact LTC's tenants. The stock actually hit a five-year low earlier this year as a result. But sentiment has improved -- and should continue to do so. With LTC still trading at a reasonable 11.56 P/E, the bounce could continue. Add to that a 5.o6% yield, paid monthly, and it's definitely worth a look.Source: Shutterstock Shaw Communications (SJR)Canadian telecommunications company Shaw Communications (NYSE:SJR) hasn't posted particularly strong performance over the past few years. SJR actually has declined nearly 10% over the past five years -- and has lost about 10% of its value over the past year alone.There are some concerns about the wireless industry in Canada, much as there are in the U.S. But Shaw is growing nicely, with revenue up so far this year. Margin expansion hasn't followed yet, but as Shaw continues to take market share, profit growth may follow.But with a 4.34% dividend yield and an 20.04x forward price-to-earnings multiple, SJR isn't pricing in much improvement. With 5G a potential catalyst in the mid-term, there's a nice case for SJR stock at current levels.Dividends are announced in Canadian dollars, which can affect the payouts received by American investors. Still, a monthly dividend, a 4%-plus yield and a potential upside provide a nice combination here.Source: Marriott Select Service Hotels via Flickr (Modified) Apple Hospitality REIT (APLE)Apple Hospitality REIT (NYSE:APLE) owns 241 hotels in the U.S. -- 115 of the hotels operate under the Marriott (NASDAQ:MAR) banner, with the remaining 126 flying under the Hilton (NYSE:HLT) flag.Those two strong brands underpin a strong portfolio. Geographic diversification limits downside risk as well. With an impressive 7.55% yield paid monthly, that makes APLE one of the best dividend-yielding stocks in terms of monthly income. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them The story admittedly isn't perfect. Growth has been relatively meager, and APLE's dividend has stayed at 10 cents per share per month since a 2015 IPO. Investors would have been much better off buying either MAR or HLT, both of which have better than doubled from early 2016 lows.But for income-focused investors, APLE looks like a strong pick.Source: Shutterstock Pembina Pipeline (PBA)Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) is the biggest company on this list and the riskiest. Pipeline companies generally are lower-risk plays in the oil and gas space, but Pembina does have some concerns. Canadian oil stocks have struggled of late, and Pembina levered up to acquire Veresen last year.That said, there's still a lot to like here. Earnings increased in the double-digits last year, largely due to the acquisition. PBA pays a solid 4.69% dividend. Valuation is relatively reasonable against U.S. rivals like Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) and Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA).If Pembina can continue to grow once the Veresen acquisition is fully integrated, there should be nice upside on top of the 4%-plus yield.Source: Shutterstock STAG Industrial (STAG)STAG Industrial (NYSE:STAG) isn't necessarily a spectacular stock, but it's one that can drive steady long-term returns along with monthly payouts. The company leases industrial buildings to single tenants and has a nicely diversified portfolio from both a customer and geographic standpoint. The average lease length currently is nearly five years, which should keep recent dividend growth intact. * 7 Winning High-Yield Dividend Stocks With Payouts Over 5% Longer-term, there are minor concerns. Valuation isn't necessarily cheap, at over 15 forward P/E. An economic downturn could lead to lease cancellations or even customer bankruptcies. Investors focused on value might want to wait for a cheaper price than the current stock price of $28.71.But investors looking for growing monthly dividend payouts don't have a ton of options, and STAG very well might be the best one.As of this writing, Vince Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Realty Income Corp. (O) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
Stocks were rocking and rolling on Thursday, with all three major U.S. indices putting up big gains on the day. After Wednesday's Fed news, that's no surprise. Let's get a look at some of today's big movers with our must-see stock trades. Must-See Stock Trades 1: AppleEarlier this month we outlined the long trade in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Then earlier this week, we said investors should consider locking in some profits after the stock's monster move. Now AAPL is erupting more than 4% on Thursday as the longs keep on cashing in.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 5 Stocks To Buy for the Happiest Employees $200 becomes an obvious magnet, even as its RSI and MACD (green circles) continue into extended territory. This setup does not favor new long positions, but the recent strength does give us a solid buy-the-dips setup going forward.If you're still long, consider trailing up those stops and locking in some gains. Must-See Stock Trades 2: GuessGuess? (NYSE:GES) picked a pretty interesting time to report earnings, with the worse-than-expected results coming on the evening before Levi (NYSE:LEVI) went public.The latter is up more than 30% on the day as investors gobble up the new IPO. On the plus side, GES stock is clinging to range support near $19. This level has been vital over the past 12 months.There are better buys out there than GES, but investors who feel compelled to go long can use Thursday's low as their stop-loss. Must-See Stock Trades 3: VentasVentas (NYSE:VTR) isn't necessarily the top stock to focus on, but its price action gives us opportunity. On Wednesday we talked about how the Fed gave bulls the green light, saying it's essentially on hold this year when it comes to rate hikes. Well, that bodes incredibly well for dividend stocks and REITs.There's a reason why names like AT&T (NYSE:T), VTR, Realty Income (NYSE:O), Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) and others are surging on the day. Look to see if these names can give us some follow through on Friday and into next week. (Here's the setup on AT&T).For VTR specifically, it held uptrend support and is back over the 20-day and 50-day moving averages. Look to see if it can get to and breakout over $65. Must-See Stock Trades 4: QorvoShares of Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) erupted more than 7% on Thursday thanks to an upgrade from Goldman Sachs. But an earnings beat from Micron (NASDAQ:MU) and continued strong price action from Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) (trade layout here) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) (trade layout here) certainly helps.The move up through $74 is significant. Not only has this level played a notable role in the past, but it's the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement for the 52-week range. Maintaining this level paves the way to $78. Should QRVO fail to hold this level, it would be encouraging to see it hold the 200-day as support.Bulls shouldn't let Qorvo get below the 20-day and uptrend support. There's still room to rally according to the MACD and RSI, despite Thursday's big move. Must-See Stock Trades 5: SquareTrending higher and peeking through resistance is Square (NYSE:SQ). The move puts SQ over the 20-day moving average and if it can close over $78, it opens up the possibility of a move to $82.50.This name tends to be volatile, but over the 200-day and SQ stock is fine. Admittedly that's a wide range from current levels but the RSI and MACD still leave plenty of room for the stock to rally. Must-See Stock Trades 6: Electronic ArtsLet's do one more really quick with Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA). * 10 Stocks on the Rise Heading Into the Second Quarter Up 7.5% on the day and it's breaking out of its recent range in a big way. I want to see EA stay over $100 now. My upside target is $108.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

The Kiplinger Dividend 15, the list of our favorite dividend-paying stocks, doled out plenty of payout love in its first year, with an average yield of 3.7%. To make it into our lineup, dividend stocks had to first beat the 2% average yield of the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index. We then looked for firms that are leaders in their industry and that have solid prospects for expanding their sales and profits, while also generating enough cash to pay investors. And we aim to avoid dividend traps -- stocks with high yields but weak underlying businesses and poor prospects. We've recently made a change to the list, pulling CVS Health (CVS). Although the stock has performed well, it broke its streak of dividend increases, which was one reason we recommended it. We'll introduce its replacement in a minute. Here is a look at the updated Kiplinger Dividend 15, including any new information that may be important. We divide the list into three groups, for their dividend stability, briskly growing payouts or high yields. Find a dividend stock that suits your needs, or select a mix.

No matter what state the market is in, there's always one thing investors are looking for and that's yield. During bull markets, bear markets and periods of chop, investors want to get paid. Naturally, that brings real estate stocks into the discussion. Because real estate investment trusts (REITs for short) are required to pay out 90% of their earnings to investors, these are generally big sources of yield for income investors.REITs don't just pay out attractive yields; many of these companies are terrific operators too. So not only do investors get to collect a solid yield, but they also get to invest in some fantastic businesses. * 7 Cheap Stocks That Make the Grade Just like every security, some are blue-chip REITs and others we shouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. So let's avoid some of those red flags and instead go with the best real estate stocks out there, many of which recently reported earnings.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Realty Income (O) Click to EnlargeOf those companies that recently reported earnings, Realty Income (NYSE:O) is one of them. Realty, known as "The Monthly Dividend Company," also happens to be one of the best-run REITs out there.On February 20th, the company beat earnings and revenue expectations, with the latter growing 10.3% year-over-year. The company recently announced its 85th consecutive dividend increase, making it one of the market's strongest income plays. Shares still yield 3.9%, despite the stock sitting near multi-year highs near $70.Should O push through $70, it could spark a larger breakout. It helps that the Fed is on hold with its rate hikes while the economy continues to chug along. That bodes well for Realty and a whole host of other REIT plays. But make no mistake about it, this one is as blue-chip as they come. Technically speaking, I wouldn't worry about O unless it fell below $62.50. Digital Realty (DLR) Click to EnlargeBreaking off of the more traditional REIT path is a technology play in Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR). The "young" company was founded about 15 years ago, is headquartered (fittingly) in San Francisco and has quickly worked its way up to a $24 billion market cap.DLR "provides data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions," with its first segment providing it a big chunk of its business. It takes one simple consideration to see why DLR is a name to be long.The cloud operates in data centers and with large companies like Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and others gathering an ever-growing collection of data, all of that needs to go somewhere, right? As more data is created, it needs somewhere to be stored. Further, as A.I. applications begin to grow, these programs require a massive amount of data. Data centers are where it's stored and that's why DLR has done so well. * 5 Dow Jones Stocks That Will Lead the Market Higher Investors need to realize this is a secular shift and companies like DLR are going to be there to soak up the dollars. The stock yields "just" 3.5% and has been red-hot lately. If we get can get a pullback to the backside of former downtrend resistance or even just $116 for more aggressive investors, it's worth considering on the long side. Ventas (VTR) Click to EnlargeAnother well-known, high-quality REIT is Ventas (NYSE:VTR). Like O and DLR, this one has been on fire as well. Short of something derailing the move, VTR stock looks set to breakout over $65 resistance.One thing that apparently won't slow down that move? Earnings. The company reported its fourth-quarter results earlier this month, beating and earnings and revenue expectations. However, management called it a "pivot year" amid Ventas' transition.The "transition" word doesn't usually sit too well with investors, but seeing VTR return to its stronger ways must have encouraged its investor base. The fact that it still yields 5% even though its sitting just below the 52-week highs is also attractive.This healthcare REIT is well-positioned for long-term secular growth. As the Baby Boomer population continues to age, Ventas' senior care facilities and medical office businesses should continue to churn out consistent rent checks. That bodes well for investors whether VTR is pivoting or not, and it bodes well for the yield. Tanger Outlet (SKT) Click to EnlargeSo far we have retail, technology and medical REITs on the list, so why not further diversify with a mall REIT? With Tanger Factory Outlet Center (NYSE:SKT), investors are getting exposure to a well-run company and a big 6.6% dividend yield.However, unlike VTR, O and DLR, Tanger is not bumping up against a potential breakout or trading higher. Peeking over its 50-day now, I'd love to see a close over $22.50 for SKT. While we'd sacrifice some yield on our cost basis, we'd also have a much better-looking stock chart.But let's not worry so much about the technicals for a moment. This REIT has not only paid but raised its dividend for 26 consecutive years, making this a safe-play income stock for investors. So those that are looking for safe payouts, SKT is one to consider.While the mall is considered a dying enterprise, not all operators are created equal. With that in mind, Tanger is actually doing incredibly well. Plus it's not a traditional mall REIT in the sense that it doesn't operate department store locations. Instead, it thrives on the outlet mall concept. * 5 Stocks Under $5 to Buy Before They Soar Finally, it has a lower valuation compared to many of its peers and a higher yield. Tough not to like that. Federal Realty (FRT)We can't end the top real estate stocks to buy list without talking about Federal Realty (NYSE:FRT). Yielding "just" 3%, this payout won't get income investors tripping over each other in order to buy.But considering the quality of the dividend may be another story. Get this: FTR has not only paid, but raised its dividend for 50 straight years. Through hellish inflation, tech bubbles and the greatest recession since the depression, FTR has raised its payout for investors each and every year. If you've got time and are looking for a dependable stream of income, FTR should be one of your first considerations. Not just for REITs, but among all dividend stocks.This retail REIT is as solid as they come and the valuation has been reasonable. However, the stock has been downright resurgent so far this year. FTR stock is up over 17% in less than two months and may need some consolidation and/or a pullback before resuming its march higher.Shares are running into recent range resistance, which has stalled it over the past few weeks. That's good news for bulls, as it allows the stock to digest some of this big rally. I would really like a pullback into that $127 area. However, long-term investors focused solely on the income are likely not interested in timing their investment in FTR.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
