High Dividend ETF  iShares Core High Dividend vs. Vanguard Dividend Appreciation (HDV, VIG)
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The opening stock market action of 2016, mostly a picture of unnerving volatility and disappointing returns, has many investors turning their attention away from share price appreciation and more toward income available through solid dividend yields. In uncertain economic conditions, investors are also drawn to dividend-paying stocks because they typically carry less risk, since most high-dividend companies are large, well-established firms. One of the easiest ways of getting exposure to a basket of high-dividend yield stocks is through buying shares of a dividend-focused ETF. Two popular choices in the category of dividend ETFs are the iShares Core High Dividend ETF and the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF. iShares Core High Dividend ETF The iShares Core High Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA: HDV) was introduced by BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK) in 2011. The fund has $5.2 billion in total assets, and an average daily trading volume of $37.5 million. An average bid-ask spread of just 0.02% shows this ETF as being extremely liquid. It tracks the Morningstar Dividend Yield Focus Index, a dividend-weighted index that is composed of 75 U.S.-listed stocks screened for both dividend sustainability and high earnings. Fund holdings are weighted by the amount of cash dividends paid rather than by dividend yield. The leading market sectors comprising the fund's holdings are energy at 21%, consumer defensive stocks at 19%, and health care sector stocks at 17%. The top three portfolio components are Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) and Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX). The annual portfolio turnover ratio is 63%. The expense ratio for HDV is 0.12%, well below the large-value category average of 0.32%. The 12-month dividend yield as of May 2016 is 3.6%. The fund's five-year average annualized return is 11.85%, outperforming the category average of 10.89%. As of mid-May 2016, the fund was up 8.42% year to date (YTD), which was much better than the category average 3.85% Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF Vanguard launched the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEARCA: VIG) in 2006. It is the most widely held dividend ETF, with total assets of $20.7 billion, an average daily trading volume of $79.5 billion, and an average bid-ask spread of 0.01%. VIG tracks the NASDAQ US Dividend Achievers Select Index, a market cap-weighted index composed of U.S.-based companies that have increased their dividend payouts for at least 10 consecutive years. The index contains approximately 180 stocks. Consumer defensive stocks account for 23% of the portfolio assets, followed by industrials at 22% and health care stocks at 15%. The fund's top three holdings are Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) and PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP). The portfolio turnover ratio is relatively low at 22%. The fund's expense ratio is 0.10%, substantially below the large blend category average 0.37%. The fund offers a dividend yield o

5 High Yield Stocks With Sustainable Payout Ratios to Buy Today
You can download a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet of high dividend stocks with 5%+ yields here: https://www.suredividend.com/high-dividend-stocks/ ------------------------- Many investors look to high yield dividend stocks with the hope of generating more income from their investment portfolios. The problem with this approach is that many stocks with high yields have unsustainable dividend payments. Their dividends exceed their earnings or cash flows, which inevitably results in a dividend cut. You can avoid this problem by investing in high yield stocks with low payout ratios. In this video, I’m going to introduce 5 high yield dividend stocks with sustainable payout ratios that you could buy today. High Yield Stock #1: AT&T (T) AT&T is the largest telecommunications company in the United States by market capitalization. Its only competitor of similar size is fellow telecommunications giant Verizon Communications. AT&T has a current dividend yield of 6.3% and is perhaps the single safest stock with a dividend yield above 5%. Using 2018 earnings guidance, the company is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of approximately 58%. AT&T is also absurdly cheap right now. We expect the company to generate earnings-per-share of about $3.45 in fiscal 2018, which implies a price-to-earnings ratio of 9.3. AT&T’s 10-year average price-to-earnings ratio has been 13.4. We believe that valuation expansion will me a meaningful contributor to this stock’s total returns moving forward. High Yield Stock #2: Owens & Minor (OMI) Owens & Minor is a healthcare distribution, transportation, and logistics company. It is likely that you haven’t heard of Owens & Minor. It is a small cap stock with a market capitalization of $1.1 billion. Still, there’s a lot to like about Owens & Minor. The company trades with a dividend yield of 6%. Moreover, this high dividend yield is well-supported by the underlying cash flows. Owens & Minor is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of just 52% in fiscal 2018. Like AT&T, Owens & Minor is currently undervalued. Our 2018 earnings estimate for Owens & Minor is $2.00 per share, which implies a current price-to-earnings ratio of 8.6. We believe that Owens & Minor deserves a price-to-earnings ratio of between 14 and 15. Valuation expansion has the potential to deliver excellent returns to today’s buyers of Owens & Minor. High Yield Stock #3: Altria Group (MO) Altria is the largest cigarette company in the United States. The company sells the Marlboro brand in the U.S. along with several non-smokeable brands and the Ste. Michelle brand of wine. Altria also has a 10% ownership stake in alcoholic beverage company Anheuser Busch. Altria is well-known for having an above-average dividend yield. The company’s yield is currently 4.9%. Altria’s management team targets a dividend payout ratio of 80% and is on pace for a payout ratio of 73% in 2018. The company’s valuation is also attractive. We believe the company should earn about $3.96 in fiscal 2018, which means it is trading at a current price-to-earnings ratio of 14.3. Altria’s 10-year average price-to-earnings ratio is 16. This is the rare case where investors can buy a very high-quality business at an extremely attractive price. High Yield Stock #4: Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) Omega Healthcare Investors is a healthcare real estate investment trust – or REIT, for short – that generates 85% of its revenue from skilled nursing facilities and 15% of its revenue from senior housing developments. This REIT currently trades with a remarkably high distribution yield of 8.4%. Omega Healthcare Investors appears likely to deliver funds from operations of $3.01 in fiscal 2018. Using the company’s current distribution payment, this implies a dividend payout ratio of 88%. Omega is trading at a price-to-FFO ratio of 10.4 while its 10-year average price-to-FFO ratio is 12.4. Today looks like an excellent opportunity for dividend investors to accumulate shares in this high-yielding REIT and bolster the passive income generated from their investment portfolios. High Yield Stock #5: Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) Enterprise Products Partners is a master limited partnership (MLP) that operates as an oil and gas storage and transportation company. Enterprise Products Partners’ asset base includes nearly 50,000 miles of pipelines and 250 million barrels of storage capacity. Enterprise Products Partners has a yield of 6.1%. Using cash flow, Enterprise Products Partners is on pace for a dividend payout ratio of just 65% in fiscal 2018. The company also appears slightly undervalued. Enterprise Products Partners is trading at a price-to-cash-flow ratio of 10.6, while its 10-year average price-to-cash-flow ratio is 11.6. The company holds appeal for income-oriented investors that want to accumulate shares in an undervalued midstream energy company.

How Safe is Target's Dividend?
In this video, we perform a deep dive on Target’s dividend safety. To begin, let’s talk about Target’s business model. Target is one of the largest retailers in the United States. The company was founded in 1902 and today, its business consists of 1,850 discount stores which offer both general merchandise and food. Target trades with a market capitalization of $37 billion. Target is a well-known dividend stock because of its compelling track record of dividend growth. With 50 years of consecutive dividend increases, Target is a member of the Dividend Aristocrats, a group of dividend stocks with more than 25 years of rising dividends. You can download our free list of Dividend Aristocrats here: https://www.suredividend.com/dividend-aristocrats-list/ Target’s dividend history satisfies the requirement to be a Dividend Aristocrat more than twice over. Because of this, Target is not just a Dividend Aristocrat but also a Dividend King, a group of even more exclusive stocks with 50+ years of dividend growth. You can download our free list of Dividend Kings here: https://www.suredividend.com/dividend-kings/ Looking ahead, the potential effect of ecommerce competition has led some investors to question the safety of Target’s dividend. For the remainder of this video, we will discuss the company’s current dividend safety from four perspectives: it’s dividend safety in the context of its current earnings, its dividend safety in the context of its current free cash flow, its dividend safety in the context of its recession performance, and its dividend safety in the context of its current debt load. Target’s Dividend Safety Relative to Earnings When Target reported third quarter financial results on November 20th, the company reaffirmed its financial guidance for the full fiscal year. Target continues to expect to generate adjusted earnings-per-share between $5.30 and $5.50 for the twelve-month reporting period. For context, Target currently pays a quarterly dividend of $0.64 per share, which implies a full-year dividend payout ratio of 47% using the midpoint of the company’s current financial guidance. Target’s Dividend Safety Relative to Free Cash Flow Through the first nine months of fiscal 2018, Target generated $3.6 billion of cash from operating activities and spent $2.9 billion on capital expenditures for free cash flow of around $700 million. At the same time, Target spent around $1 billion on dividend payments. This implies a free cash flow payout ratio of 133% - which is clearly unsustainable over long periods of time. With that said, Target’s year-to-date results were simultaneously impacted by a large increase in its inventory account (which reduces cash flow from operating activities) as well as higher-than-normal capital expenditures. The cyclicality of Target’s operations around the holiday season means that looking at full-year financial results is a much better way to assess its dividend safety. Accordingly, we can turn to Target’s 2017 results. Through the full fiscal year, Target generated $6.9 billion in cash from operating activities and spent $2.5 billion on capital expenditures for free cash flow of about $4.4 billion. At the same time, Target paid $1.3 billion of dividends for a free cash flow dividend payout ratio of 57%. On the surface, Target’s dividend safety relative to free cash flow appears alarming if we assess only its year-to-date financial results. However, measuring its dividend safety over a longer time horizon reveals that Target’s dividend is safe for the foreseeable future. Target’s Dividend Safety Relative to Recession Performance We believe that the best way to measure a company’s recession resiliency is by measuring its earnings-per-share performance during the financial crisis that occurred between 2007 and 2009. Target’s performance during this time period is shown below: • 2007 adjusted earnings-per-share: $3.33 • 2008 adjusted earnings-per-share: $2.86 • 2009 adjusted earnings-per-share: $3.30 • 2010 adjusted earnings-per-share: $3.88 (new high) Target performed very well during the last recession. Although earnings declined slightly, they rebounded to a new high in 2010. Accordingly, we have no concerns about the company’s ability to pay rising dividends moving forward. Target’s Dividend Safety Relative to Its Current Debt Load In Target’s 2017 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company reported a weighted average interest rate of 4.1% on its outstanding debt of $10.4 billion. This implies aggregate interest expense of $426 million. As the image in our video shows, Target’s weighted average interest rate would need to increase above the 25% level before its interest expense would reduce its free cash flow enough to endanger its dividend. Accordingly, we believe that Target’s debt level is unlikely to impact the safety of its dividend moving forward.

Vanguard Launches 2 Dividend-Oriented International ETFs (VIGI, VYMI)
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The Vanguard Group, the world’s second-largest provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), has expanded its dividend and international offerings by launching the Vanguard International Dividend Appreciation ETF (NASDAQ: VIGI) and the Vanguard International High Dividend Yield ETF (NASDAQ: VYMI). Patterned after its highly popular U.S.-focused ETFs, the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEARCA: VIG) and the Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF (NYSEARCA: VYM), the new funds will follow similar strategies for generating dividend income. The International Dividend Appreciation ETF will invest in companies of all capitalizations with a history of growing dividends, while the International High Dividend Yield ETF will focus on companies with high dividend yields. Both funds began trading in the first week of March 2016. The new funds, which are the first international ETFs Vanguard has launched since the Vanguard Total International Bond ETF (NASDAQ: BNDX) in May 2013, offer yield-seeking investors an additional slice of the index pie with targeted exposure in higher-yielding dividend stocks that are more prevalent in foreign countries. The yield from the MSCI EAFE Index, which tracks dividend-paying stocks in developed countries, is more than 100 basis points higher than the yield of the Standard & Poor's (S&P) 500 Index. However, the funds' entry into the global markets could be coming at a difficult time. Global stocks have struggled over the last couple of years in the face of a stronger U.S. dollar. Neither fund employs any currency hedging strategy, so they could experience the normal volatility associated with currency exchange. Some of the volatility is likely to be smoothed over due to the high dividend yield. The funds would be suitable as a supplement to a core holding of U.S. growth stocks. Vanguard International Dividend Appreciation Index ETF The Vanguard International Dividend Appreciation Index ETF is designed to track the performance and yield of the NASDAQ International Dividend Achievers Select Index. The index is made up of more than 200 small-, mid- and large-cap companies from developed and emerging markets. Like the the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF, the fund focuses specifically on companies with a history of growing dividends. As of March 18, 2016, the fund had $10.66 million in assets under management (AUM) with half of its weighting split almost evenly between consumer defensive and health care companies. The top five holdings, which comprise 21% of the portfolio, are Tencent Holdings Ltd. (OTC: TCEHY), Roche Holding AG (OTC: RHHBY), Nestle SA (OTC: NSRGY), Novo Nordisk A/S (NYSE: NVO) and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NYSE: NTT). After its first full week of trading, the fund was up 1.14% as compared with the MSCI ACWI Ex USA NR USD Index, which was up 1.53%. The fund’s expense ratio is 0.25%. Its dividend yield will not be established until after it issues its first dividend. Vanguard

Making Your Investments Pay  Equity Income ETFs
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The allure of dividend investing is simple to understand. Regular cash payments from the company provide much needed retirement income, enhanced returns via dividend reinvestment and helps keep away the cold hand of inflation. Unfortunately, 2008 is shaping up to be one lousy year for stocks and those in equity income funds are feeling the brunt of the damage. These funds often have a healthy dose of financial stocks, and as we have seen so far in this crisis, dividends are not guaranteed payments. Many banks have cut their distributions to shareholders repeatedly over the proceeding months. But in the current market place, we are facing an interesting conundrum. High yield once meant risky yield. As investors ran to anything that showed signs of pure safety, stock prices fell. Today, solid dividend paying companies are trading for a fraction of what they did only a few months ago. Long-term investors can lock in 5% dividend rates, destroying the paltry rates on treasury bonds. The three month T-bill was recently trading at 0.01% and the 10-year at under 2.75%. (For an in-depth look into ETFs, read our Exchange Traded Funds Tutorial.) Taking the ETF ApproachWhile there are many equity income style mutual funds available for purchase, nothing beats exchange traded funds (ETF) in terms of operating expenses. Luckily for investors, all of the major ETF sponsors have such funds in their arsenal. My favorite in the sector due to its low allocation to financial stocks, currently at only 23.7%, is the Vanguard High Yield Dividend ETF (NYSE:VYM). The fund is based off of the FTSE High Dividend Yield Index which tracks U.S. companies that pay higher than average dividends, not including real estate investment trusts. The ETF also holds the largest basket of stocks at 531. These include investments in Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and rural telecom provider Windstream (NYSE:WIN). The expense ratio for the fund is relatively low at 0.25% compared to 0.40% for its mutual fund counterpart High Dividend Yield Index Fund Investor Shares (VHDYX) The fund is currently yielding 4.35% and is down about 35% for the year The State Street Dividend SPDR (AMEX:SDY) is in essence a smaller, more concentrated version of the Vanguard fund. The dividend Spider comprises 51 common stocks in the Standard & Poor's High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index. The fund has a nearly 60% weighting toward financial and utility stocks. With Synovus Financial (NYSE:SNV) and Consolidated Edison (NYSE:ED) counted as top holdings. The ETF yielded 5.36% and has a cheap expense ratio of 0.35%. (Learn more about these types of investments in The Lowdown On Index Funds.) For investors who believe that the worst of credit crisis is behind us and that financial stocks are close to a bottom, the Powershares High Yield Equity Dividend Achievers Portfolio (AMEX:PEY) is for you. The fund has the highest allocation to banks, insurance and monetary service stocks out of any of the ETFs o
