High-dividend stocks can be misleading. Here's a smart way to find stable stocks with high dividends. Watch these nine dividend payers on IBD's radar.
It has certainly been a long bull market. And growth stocks have led the charge.But in all this passion for growth, don't forget that income is an important part of your portfolio as well. It is a great asset when growth slows.And, while 2019 was a big year for stocks, remember that the trouncing the market took in the fourth quarter of 2018 made that possible. Last year's performance in many stocks doesn't look as impressive if you include that quarterly performance.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThat's why at Growth Investor we know it's important to have some stocks that will deliver solid returns and deliver a good, inflation-beating (and sometimes inflation-trouncing) dividend as well. You can take the cash, reinvest it, or let it pile up to buy other investments.Whatever you choose to do, it's smart to have some income in your portfolio.Below are seven high-yield real estate investment trusts (REITs) to ground your income portfolio. Low rates and strong lenders make this a great sector to start your income stock collection. REITs to Buy: Store Capital (STOR)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 3.8%Store Capital (NYSE:STOR) is actually an acronym for what the REIT specializes in -- single-tenant operational real estate.That means it focuses on maximizing the value of companies that run businesses like chain restaurants, health clubs, supermarkets, distribution facilities and retail.Mind you, it doesn't build or manage shopping malls. Just standalone stores.It's also a sale-leaseback structure, which means the companies sell the property to STOR and then lease it back so they can take advantage of the depreciation of the property.The idea has worked so well that Warren Buffett invested $377 million in the company back in 2017. That's nearly 10% of outstanding stock.The stock is up more than 25% in the past year and still delivers a very respectable 3.8% dividend. First Industrial Realty Trust (FR)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 2.2%First Industrial Realty Trust (NYSE:FR) focuses solely on industrial real estate, like warehouses and light industrial properties.In the age of e-commerce, this is a very important sector. And with a $5 billion market capitalization, FR is a good-sized player.As we have seen with Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) cutting ties with FedEx (NYSE:FDX), logistics is a very competitive industry at this point. And getting warehouses as close to customers' homes as possible means better possibilities for next-day and even same-day delivery.And that concept goes up the chain. Having products close to distribution centers is crucial. So, instead of stores popping up, it's warehouses and distribution hubs. It's the kind of business model that earns stocks a high grade in my stock-picking system.The stock is up 40% in the last 12 months, which has brought down the dividend to about 2.2%. But it's still trading at a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 27, so there's still some value there. Prologis (PLD)Source: rafapress / Shutterstock.com Dividend Yield: 2.4%Prologis (NYSE:PLD) is the stock you want if you're a true believer in the world of e-commerce. It's the largest industrial real estate company in the world.It has facilities all around the world. And by its $56 billion market cap, you can be sure it's a major player in this sector.What's more, now that the U.S. and China have sheathed their trade war swords for the moment, it allows the global economy some breathing space, not only on the retail level but also on the global business side as well.While 2020 may not be a massive year like 2019 was for U.S. stocks, the global market should fare better than it did last year. And PLD will benefit from that.The stock is up more than 45% in the past year, but that has dropped its dividend yield down to around 2.4%. That still beats inflation and gives you some solid growth to boot. Duke Realty (DRE)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 2.7%Duke Realty (NYSE:DRE) has been around since 1972, and has about 155 million square feet of industrial rental space in 20 key logistical markets in the U.S.It has warehouse properties in many of the major U.S. ports, which provides for solid, regular business. And because of its longevity, it has snapped up some of the best locations for its properties, giving it the ability to keep its properties busy, regardless of the economic cycles.As I always say in Growth Investor, the United States is the oasis around the world, so many of the best investments are here. Plus, since it has properties all across the U.S., it can avoid any regional downturns. And to further insulate it from market cycles, it also owns and manages medical office properties, which is another key growth area.It has a $13 billion market cap, so it's big, but not massive. And it has been in the business for a long time, so it knows what it's doing -- and is doing it well.The stock is up 30% in the last 12 months, and it delivers a respectable 2.7% dividend. Armada Hoffler Properties (AHH)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 4.6%Armada Hoffler Properties (NYSE:AHH) is a geographically focused REIT, with a variety of properties in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S.Currently it has over 50 properties, with 36 of them in Virginia. Remember, Virginia has two significant population centers. It surrounds Washington, DC -- which includes the Pentagon as well as Amazon's new HQ2 -- and even more densely populated is the Tidewater area, where there is one of the biggest naval shipyards in the world as well as significant military bases.Both these areas are booming. And AHH's mix of properties -- from multi-family housing to office buildings to student housing -- allow it to take advantage of the growth in these states.And since it's focused and has been around for more than 40 years, it knows its region very well, which helps when it comes to selling properties and buying new ones.Up 23% in the last 12 months, it delivers a lush 4.6% dividend. Arbor Realty Trust (ABR)Source: Pavel Kapysh / Shutterstock.com Dividend Yield: 7.9%Arbor Realty Trust (NYSE:ABR) has been one of my favorite REITs for a long time.It's not that big -- about $1.6 billion in market cap -- but it has a relatively new model that has been working well over the years.It doesn't own properties. It originates the financing on properties. And it focuses on some of the best sectors in the markets today -- healthcare, senior housing, multi-family housing and other commercial properties.By not taking ownership of the properties, its only risk is making sure the organizations it helps develop are reliable and the business looks sustainable.Having been around since 2003, it means the company survived the 2008 real estate market implosion. That's a good sign it knows what it's doing moving forward.The stock is up 29% in the past year and it delivers a whopping 7.9% dividend, yet it trades with a trailing P/E of 10. Between its growth and income prospects, ABR is a top candidate for my Money Magnets strategy. PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (PMT)Source: Shutterstock Dividend Yield: 8.3%PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust (NYSE:PMT) is similar to ABR in the sense that it focuses on the origination of loans and not the ownership of property outright.The difference is, PMT focuses on the residential market. It does mortgages and mortgage-related loans (like refinancing and home equity lines).Now that rates will remain low and the economy is showing some stability, this is a good time for the housing market. Plus, as Gen Xers start to pay off their student debt and begin to start families, they'll be a driving force in the housing market in coming years.The stock is up 17% in the past year and has a very rich 8.3% dividend yield. But PMT stock has a trailing P/E of just 9. Even if the markets just edge higher slowly, this is a lot better than sticking extra cash in a CD. 'Money Magnets': The Best Dividend Growth Stocks AroundWhatever your portfolio size and goals, you'll also want to look at the group of stocks I've nicknamed the Money Magnets.Not only did these stocks earn an "A" in my Portfolio Grader, thanks to strong buying pressure and great fundamentals …The stocks also earn an "A" in my Dividend Grader. These stocks are able to pay great yields -- and have the strong business model to back it up.All in all, I've got 28 strong dividend growth stocks for you now in Growth Investor -- averaging 4% yields -- far more than the S&P 500 or even a Treasury bond. These stocks are poised to do well as we continue to see international capital flow to the U.S. markets.

Stocks and bonds have largely rewarded market denizens since the Great Recession's market nadir in 2009, but investors great and small may be pondering how much leg the current rally has left. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) might be the asset class investors need to thread the needle in this tenuous bull market.This summer, prominent hedge-fund king Ray Dalio wrote that market paradigms are shifting, and the next decade's prospects are for slow growth and chronically soft interest rates. He believes the world's central banks, including America's Federal Reserve, "doing more of this printing and buying of assets will produce more negative real and nominal returns that will lead investors to increasingly prefer alternative forms of money (e.g., gold) or other storeholds of wealth."While Dalio suggests investors might add gold to their portfolios, they might want to start researching REITs to buy, too. That's because real estate also has been a classic hedge against inflation, and it tends to benefit from low interest rates.Another upside: REITs can throw off substantial income; gold does not. By law, real estate investment trusts must distribute 90% of taxable income to shareholders through dividends. But the ultimate hedge is finding REITs that reliably (and, when possible, aggressively) increase their payouts, as that will keep the dividend from actually losing value due to inflation over time.Here are seven REITs to buy for investors who are interested in dividend growth. These real estate companies are poised to sustain and improve their cash distributions through the possibly sluggish, low-interest-rate future that some experts are predicting.

When it comes to your investments, a decade is a long time. Ten years ago, we were just recovering from the 2008 meltdown and the worst recession since the Great Depression. Investors were nursing catastrophic losses. For some, it felt like the world was ending.Ten years before that, we were in the midst of dot-com mania and the biggest stock market bubble in history. Just a decade before that, no one had ever heard of the internet, and mobile phones were the size of a cinder block. We can only guess what the world will look like 10 years from now.Real estate traditionally has been a stable store of value. But with the rate of change accelerating in recent years, even the stability of some real estate investment trusts (REITs) has come into question. Amazon.com (AMZN) is taking a wrecking ball to brick-and-mortar retail, Airbnb is turning every spare bed into a viable hotel competitor, and telecommuting is making the traditional office far less critical than it used to be.For buy-and-hold investors, the key to making money in REITs over the coming decades will be to focus on properties that are as "future-proof" as possible. As fast as the world is changing, we'll likely always need places to live, medical facilities, warehouses and other mission-critical properties.Today, we're going to look at five REITs to buy and hold for decades. After the recent run-up in REIT prices, you don't necessarily need to run out and buy them today. But find somewhere to write each of these names down so you remember them during a dip. Because if you're looking for a collection of real estate stocks to throw off the income you'll need in retirement, each of these fits the bill.

Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) famously doesn't pay dividends - it has better things to do with its shareholders' cash - but Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett sure loves collecting them. In 2018 alone, Berkshire raked in $3.8 billion in dividends - "a sum that will increase in 2019," Buffett said in the annual letter.The great majority of the stocks in Berkshire's portfolio are dividend stocks. And, indeed, all of its top 10 holdings - from Apple (AAPL) to Coca-Cola (KO) to American Express (AXP) - pay a cash distribution.Buffett has never been one to reach for yield, but a number of Berkshire Hathaway's income-generating equities are quite generous by today's standards. As of Aug. 26, nine of Warren Buffett's dividend stocks sported yields of at least 3%. (For comparison, the yield on the S&P; 500 is just below 2%.)After excluding names that are now negligible parts of Berkshire Hathaway's portfolio - namely, United Parcel Service (UPS) - these are the Warren Buffett dividend stocks with the highest yields.
