6 Monthly Dividend-Paying High-Yields to Consider

I love to receive dividends and everyone should love it too. Payments by my stock holdings are the main cash source for further investments and a great passive income for daily consumption.

Generally a company pays four times a year a quarter dividend, but there are also some stocks (over 300) that pay dividends on a monthly basis. I don’t know why they do this but they do it. Maybe some people feel richer when they get more dividend checks over the year. I personally don't care about the payment periods of the company. I only look at the total annualized yield, and I often try to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date in order to receive the next dividend very quick.

Recently I screened some interesting high-yielding real estate investment trusts with monthly payments. Now I would like to focus on monthly dividend-paying stocks from the business development industry. Below is a small list of Six High-Yield Stocks of which two are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
