Time for the quarterly update of the list of stocks, including exchange-listed closed end funds [CEFs], that pay their dividends monthly.

Many income investors are looking for monthly dividend payments to support their income during retirement. Other pre-retirement investors want monthly dividend stocks for their IRAs for faster compounding.

This list is now up to over 200 different stocks, CEFs, REITs, floating rate funds, oil income funds and Canadian royalty trusts, all of which are traded on the New York Stock Exchange [NYSE] or American Stock Exchange [AMEX]. I've added over fifty new securities since the last update. The list is sorted by yield with the highest first, and Canadian companies are identified due to their tax withholding issues.
