- FBR Director of Research David Hilal and team started with 250 dividend stocks tracked by the company, then narrowed it to 25 to own in a rising rate environment, and then further trimmed the list to a favored ten.
- Among the requirements: A minimum yield of 3%, an extremely safe payout with the opportunity to go higher, and stable to improving fundamentals which might drive share price appreciation in addition to the dividend.
- The highest yielder of the group is New Residential (NYSE:NRZ) at more than a 15% yield. Analyst Jessica Levi-Ribner figures the stock deserves something closer to a 9% yield given its growing book value and clear outlook into earnings and the dividend (which has been on the rise).
- The lowest yielder on the list is James River Holdings (NASDAQ:JRVR) at just over a 2% yield, but that's not counting special dividends - FBR expects the yield is nearly 9% once those are factored in.
- The rest: Blackstone Mortgage Trust (NYSE:BXMT), Peak Resorts (NASDAQ:SKIS), Great Ajax (NYSE:AJX), Hospitality Properties (NYSE:HPT), Preferred Apartments (NYSE:APTS), Western Gas Partners (NYSE:WES), National CineMedia (NASDAQ:NCMI), Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE:DOC).
