This screen yielded three stocks that investors may want to consider.

If you own marijuana stocks, there is a way you can earn yields of 20%-plus from them. How? By lending them out to short sellers who want to borrow these heavily shorted stocks – and while the author of today’s article acknowledges that lending out shares it not without potential risk, he argues that “it may be worth the risk when fees are especially high.” For more on how this lending works – and the borrowing fees for some of the more popular marijuana stocks – CLICK HERE.
When it comes to high-yield dividend stocks and high-growth dividend stocks, the author of today’s article points out that it doesn’t have to be an either/or proposition, as “some dividend payers offer an attractive current yield and compelling growth potential” – and he proceeds to highlight three master limited partnerships with above-average current payouts and which are forecast to increase those payouts by more than 15% annually over the coming years.

In today’s article, the author outlines six investing ideas to consider for the remainder of the year based on “three key interrelated themes shaping economies and market…: sustained global economic expansion and the need to rethink both returns and risk.” Which asset classes, sectors, and factors might investors want to consider through the end of the year?

The author of today’s article refers to it as “that classic wealth-killing blunder”: limiting the stocks in your portfolio to the “household names” (i.e. large caps) of the S&P 500 and ignoring midcap stocks. Midcaps, he points out, have been clobbering their small- and large-cap counterparts over the long-term – and as many have not seen the big price run-ups that larger players have experience of late, this creates a “Goldilocks” type situation. He proceeds to highlight three midcap plays to consider, each of which pays a dividend of up to 5.8% and is largely off Wall Street’s radar. CLICK HERE for more.
Current conditions at home and abroad could be setting up for a bear market. Or the bull market could continue its run for quite some time before falling. For investors who are torn between wanting to protect against the risk of loss and not wanting to miss out on further gains, the author of today’s article recommends investing in defensive stocks. The author screened for inexpensive (under $10) dividend-paying stocks in defensive sectors (utilities and consumer staples) and that screen yielded six stocks.
