Dividend and retirement-focused investors are often looking for monthly cash flow and seeking for a list of stocks that pay a dividend every month. This article provides a list of Monthly dividend stocks and the related excel spreadsheet for download (free).
All the identified US-based monthly dividend stocks are members of the Russell 2000 Index, are mid- or small-sized businesses and not part of the S&P 500. The companies of this list are dominant in three sectors: Real Estate, Financial Services, and Energy. Please note that the dividend yield and payout ratios are above average, which could be a risk identifier for a dividend stock.
The Monthly Dividend Stocks Excel spreadsheet contains the following fundamental and stock price performance metrics for each stock with an every month dividend.
- Dividend & earnings per share
- Dividend Yield
- Price-to-earnings ratio
- Pay-out ratio
This Monthly Dividend Stocks spreadsheet allows you to easily sort by the price-to-earnings ratio (or dividend yield) so you can quickly find undervalued or overvalued dividend-paying stocks. Pay-out ratio’s above 80% should also be a warning signal for dividend investors.
The top-10 monthly dividend stocks do provide an above-average Dividend Yield. See below the top-10 list December 2019:
|Company||Ticker||Sector||Dividend rate||Dividend yield (%)|
|Orchid Island Capital Inc.||ORC||Real Estate||$0.96||14.14%|
|Capitala Finance Corp.||CPTA||Financial Services||$1.00||12.46%|
|AGNC Investment Corp.||AGNC||Real Estate||$2.16||11.99%|

If you are an investor focused on a monthly cash flow, the dividend aristocrats could be a good alternative. Companies that increase year by year regular dividends, tend to be in better financial health and produce sustained earnings and revenue growth.
By combining 3 different dividend aristocrats active in different sectors and having their quarterly dividend not in-sync, the result will also result in 12 dividend payments per year. But probably in more stable performing companies in the long-run and you will benefit even more from the “compounding effect”, given the yearly dividend increases.
