Interested in Monthly Dividends
#1
Hello Everyone,

I'm interested in making monthly dividends to supplement my income. But i dont know where to start. I googled for a monthly dividend stockscreener but i only find screeners for all stocks and not just monthly. I thought there would be a better way than to search through every stock. also what to look for in a monthly dividend stock? whats the average amount I should budget each month to buy the stocks?

Hi, and welcome.
First of all, you don't need a stock that pays monthly in order to get income monthly. Most of the north american companies pay out a quarterly dividend, so 4x per year. With a few different companies you can already achieve monthly income, though the amount will of course vary from month to month. Eventually you will want to own quite many different companies from different sectors in order to have more safety.

However that is not to say that it's a bad idea to look for companies that pay every month, I own a few of those and I couldn't be happier with the stable monthly cashflow. REITs and MLPs often pay out monthly, so those are good places to start looking.

The three companies that I own who pay monthly are Realty Income (O), STAG Industrial (STAG) and Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT).

Realty Income is the steadiest of the three, but is a bit overvalued now and yields just under 4%.

STAG appears reasonably valued and yield around 6%.

CLDT is the cheapest of the three, but also has the biggest concerns about future growth at the moment. It yields 7.4%.

Shaw Communications (SJR) is a dual-listed Canadian communications/cable company that pays monthly.
Main Street Capital (MAIN) is a Business Development Company (BDC) that pays monthly.

crimsonghost is correct. You can get dividends every month by assembling a collection of companies that pay on different quarterly schedules. If you want to see you options, get the CCC spreadsheet located here and look through the schedule in column 'P'. A, B & C correspond to the payment cycle.

What I think he means is that PG pays on month 1 of the Q, IBM on month 2 of the Q and MCD on month 3, equal investments in all 3 would generate a fairly consistent amount on a monthly basis.

Very hard to set up a substantial monthly program as it forces you to leave many March, June, September, and December payers(greater percentage pay those months) out of your portfolio.

David Fish's Champion spreadsheet also lists dates. You could sort his data that way and start building.

The alternative is to just budget accordingly.

I do track this with my portfolio as well.
