3 Monster Dividend Yields to Hunt Down in 2014

High yield took a gut check in 2013, but these stocks should enjoy a fruitful year

While the market’s sizzling run in 2013 was the toast of Wall Street, it wasn’t roses in every corner. Specifically, thanks to a spike in Treasury yields, many higher-yielding assets such as utilities, real estate investment trusts, master limited partnerships and business development companies — which are sensitive to interest rates — took it on the chin.

But that’s not to say big income should be avoided in 2014. Several high-yielding dividend stocks look particularly tempting against the current backdrop, and could offer investors payouts in the high single digits, even double digits. Better still, I think each of the following three stocks could be set up for capital gains as well.

5 ETFs to Buy in January

January is a great time to rebalance your portfolio and add these ETFs

Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing special about the month of January from an investment perspective.

I’m not a big believer in the “Santa Claus rally” or in the “January effect” — the popular names given to the market’s tendency to post good returns in December and January — because seasonal patterns like these tend to get trumped by whatever the prevailing market trend happens to be. In other words, in a good, healthy cyclical bull market, December and January should see decent returns — along with the other ten months.

Coming off one of the best market years since the 1990s, I expect to see a strong start to 2014. And the start of the year is a great time to rebalance your portfolio and add some new holdings, like these 5 ETFs that look red-hot for 2014.
