3 Monthly Paying REITs With Recent Good News And Upcoming Ex-Dividends

Must read

Monthly dividend-paying stocks are beneficial for income investors because they provide ongoing, regular dividend payments every month that can be used toward recurring expenses. Temporary share price fluctuations are not as important as steady income for these investors, but it’s a bonus when stock prices rise because of good earnings, dividend hikes, analyst upgrades or other news.

Here are three real estate investment trusts (REITs) that pay steady monthly dividends, have recently received positive news and will have ex-dividend dates coming next week for those looking for reliable income:
