HCP (HCP) is another REIT that’s no stranger to the list of top dividend payers. And between a dividend hike and a sagging share price, the dividend yield on HCP stock is up from 5.5% a month ago.

That might be good for new money, but existing investors are having no fun. HCP stock is off more than 17% so far in 2014.

HCP is projected to show a small-gain in earnings when it reports fourth-quarter results Tuesday, but the market remains concerned that its revenue stream is too concentrated on a relatively small number of operators and tenants.
