As tax reform sets in, and expensive over-regulation is rolled-back, the market continues to set new record highs. However, not all stocks are particpating in the latest round of gains. This week's Weekly highlights a big-dividend REIT, that is very healthy, but the share price has pulled back, and the valuation is attractive. If you are an income-focused investor, this one is worth considering.
In a return to the basics, this week's Weekly provides details for a handful of safe big-dividend stocks that we consider very attractive. Long-term, contrarian opportunities that we believe are worth considering.
This week we review how recent market declines have created some very attractive dividend yields, especially for our favorite healthcare REIT (Hint: It's one of the REITs in this table, and no, it’s not Omega!). We also provide a review of our favorite industrials stock (not a REIT!) which happens to be offering an extremely attractive dividend yield right now. Additionally, we share our view on how we expect this earnings season to impact the sharp decline in stocks we’ve experienced so far this year.
