Inland Real Estate
Market Cap: $750 million
Dividend Yield: 6.8%
June 11 Open: $8.65
Inland Real Estate (NYSE:IRC) owns and operates neighborhood and single-tenant retail centers and is the best performer on this list on a per-share basis, tacking on an impressive 10% since Jan. 1 to trounce a sideways market. But this is a dividend-focused stock list, so let’s talk yield.
IRC has paid a dividend since 2004 and currently is churning out a consistent 4.75-cent yield per month. That’s right: This is another company with a 30-day dividend cycle instead of a 90-day dividend cycle. At 57 cents annually, your yield is a nice 6.8% in this pick. Just make sure to use a limit order if you’re shopping for Inland Real Estate. Only about 200,000 to 300,000 shares trade on a given day, and you don’t want to get overcharged with a market order if you buy at the wrong time.
