3 Dividend Stocks to Buy Today

3 Dividend Stocks to Buy Today

(InvestorsAlley) – Lock-in a portfolio pay raise in May by purchasing shares of these three stocks today. A growing yield not only signifies a strong business but it also puts upwards pressure on the share price of the stock, giving you a win-win investment.

My dividend stock investment strategies solely focus on finding, owning and sometimes trading dividend paying stocks that regularly –or irregularly– increase their dividend rate. With the stock indexes setting new highs every day it seems, you may need some catalysts to move share prices higher.

If you’re a dividend-focused investor, you can put some extra gains into your brokerage account values by purchasing shares of income stocks with growing dividends before they come out with the next increase announcement.

The real estate investment trust (REIT) sector includes a large number of companies that pay growing dividends and have attractive yields. Most REITs announce a new, higher dividend rate once a year and then pay the new rate for the next four quarters.

I maintain a custom built REIT database that includes when the companies typically announce dividend increases as one of the data points. A month to six weeks before the next dividend announcement is often a good time to buy or add shares of a REIT that you expect to announce a higher payment with the next dividend announcement.

When the market sees the higher rate, the share price often moves higher, and it can be a significant gain to the upside. You can use this information to either buy shares at a lower price to hold or as an intermediate-term trade with the goal of making a profit on the typical high single-digit to low double-digit share price gain that often comes with the news of a dividend increase. In many cases, the share price will continue to appreciate until just before the next ex-dividend date.

The last few months of the year and the first three is the period when dividend increase activity is highest. However, there are REITs that announce new rates almost every month of the year, with only a few increase announcements in the summer months of June and July. For May, my database has three REITs that have historically announced new, higher dividend rates.

Agree Realty Corporation (NYSE:ADC) focuses on the acquisition, development, ownership and management of retail properties. The company owns over 360 properties located in 43 states.

Historically, Agree Realty announced a dividend increase once a year in May. In December, the company announced a second dividend increase of 3.1% on top of the 3.2% increase announced in May. Adjusted FFO per share grew by 5.2% in 2016, so there remains potential for another 3% boost to be announced in May. That dividend will have an end of June record date with payment in mid-July. ADC yields 4.1%.

A year ago in May, Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN) increased its dividend for the first time in six years. The company develops, builds and manages Class-A office and mixed use properties. The properties are located primarily along the East Coast from New Jersey to D.C.

Brandywine also has properties in Texas. Last year the BDN dividend was increased by 6.7%. Management has provided 2017 FFO guidance of $1.37 to $1.42 per share. The current annual dividend is $0.64 per share, so there is potential for another high single-digit to low double-digit dividend boost.

The next dividend will be announced at the end of May with record and payment dates in July. BDN currently yields 3.9%.

Kilroy Realty Corp. (NYSE:KRC) develops, owns, and operates Class A office and mixed-use properties along the West Coast. Last year, Kilroy increased its dividend by 7.1%. For 2016, FFO per share increased by 2.0%.

However, the current dividend is just 43% of that FFO amount. I am looking for another mid to high-single-digit dividend increase. Kilroy will announce the next dividend in mid-May with ex-dividend at the end of June and payment in July. KRC currently yields 2.1%.

Owning dividend stocks with secure and growing cash flows like the three stocks above allows me and my subscribers to stop worrying about the daily gyrations of the stock market. Instead, we earn consistent returns, paid in the form of cash. It’s so easy, all you have to do is buy shares in the stocks that I recommend and watch as they deposit money into your brokerage account multiple times a month.

Right now, there are over 20 high-yield stocks available through my Monthly Dividend Paycheck Calendar, a system for generating a recurring monthly income stream from the market’s most stable high-yield stocks.

The Monthly Dividend Paycheck Calendar is set up to make sure you receive a minimum of 6 paychecks every month and in some months up to 14 paychecks from reliable high-yield stocks built to last a lifetime.

This unique tool will set you up to receive a more predictable dividend stock income stream that you can count on every month instead of just once a quarter like most other investors. Joining my calendar by Friday, April 14th will give you the opportunity to claim an extra $1,671 in dividend payouts by April 28th.

The Calendar tells you when you need to own the stock, when to expect your next payout, and how much you can make from these low-risk, buy and hold stocks paying upwards of 12%, 13%, even 18%. I’ve done all the research and hard work, you just have to pick the stocks and how much you want to get paid.

The next critical date is Friday, April 14th (it’s closer than you think), so you’ll want to take action before that date to make sure you don’t miss out. This time, we’re gearing up for an extra $1,671 in payouts by April 28th, but only if you’re on the list before April 14th.
