Monthly Pay Dividend Stocks And Funds Make Merry For May


  • Imagine a stock or fund that paid out its dividends once a month! Instead of quarterly, semi-annually or (ugh) annually, your anticipatory angst waiting for money is reduced by 300%, or more!
  • The May U.S. exchange-traded monthly-paid (MoPay) dividends, upsides, and net gains include 1. Stocks by yield (75); 2. Stocks by price-upside (30); 3. Closed-End Investments, Exchange-Traded Funds & Notes (CEICs/ETFs/ETNs) by yield >6.9% (80).
  • Items: 1. Top MoPay stock gains; 2. Overall best MoPay gainers; 3. Funds vs. Equities; 4. Fund risks/rewards. All per prices as of 5/3/21.
  • 75 U.S. MoPay equities priced over $4 per share were listed here. Canadian MoPay equities are omitted, but many Canadian firms are U.S. listed OTC. CEICs/ETFs/ETNs are combined US/Canadian, and all show yields over 6.9%.
  • Analyst 1-year targets revealed that investing $5k in the lowest-priced five of ten top-yield MoPay US exchange equities produced 53.16% more gain than $5k invested in all ten. Little (lower-priced) MoPay dogs rule in May!

I'd rather have Chinese communist troops stick slivers of wood under my fingernails than have to read this article again.
Thanks for the excellent article! Already own several, but found at least 5 more serious prospects.

Any thoughts on why there are so many Canadian equities listed?
This article is like a roller coaster ride.

Nice article. Mo pay is good .
( IMO) , VYM is not a great benchmark. PEY , SPHD are better.
Great article; thank you for all your hard work. Looking to add VIV to holdings. SLVO is interesting but I suspect that yield will drop significantly each month so I will stay away from that one.
