Dividends Every Month
05/20/2016 9:00 am EST
We know many investors rely on the dividends from your stock portfolios to fund some or all of your living expenses; therefore, we’ve create a24-stock portfolio that pays dividends every month, explains Richard Moroney, editor of Dow Theory Forecasts.
Most stocks pay four dividends a year, once each quarter. However, of the stocks in our coverage universe that paid a dividend in the first quarter, nearly half paid in March.
As such, investors tend to receive a large chunk of their dividend payments late in the quarter, which could leave them light during the early months of the quarter.
In addition, while most companies pay on a regular schedule, (January, April, July, October; February, May, August, November; or March, June, September, December), plenty are not that regular.
With the above scheduling issues in mind, we’ve assembled a portfolio of 24 stocks that yields a combined 2.8% and pays out no less than 8% of its dividends each month.
To avoid concentration, we limited the portfolio to no more than 21% in a given sector.
