The stock market has bounced off its lows from last year. One smart investment strategy is to follow the insight of investing legend Peter Lynch. Two top options for dividend investors to consider adding to this month (or adding to their portfolio if they don't already own them) are Realty Income (NYSE: O) and STAG Industrial (NYSE: STAG).
Lower share prices are increasing dividend yields, and many of these dividend payers are solid companies that are earning enough to keep boosting those dividends even in this uncertain economy. Three dividend stocks that continue to increase their payouts despite lowered share prices are Life Storage (NYSE: LSI), Realty Income (NYSE: O), and Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR).
Realty Income (NYSE: O) has quickly made a name for itself as one of the most reliable-paying dividend stocks. Since the start of the global pandemic, investors have become increasingly concerned about the future of the real estate investment trust (REIT). Despite investors' worries, here's why Realty Income is more than capable of paying you for years to come.
