It’s that time again, folks. Slow and steady wins the race, as they say, and the magic of compounding through re-investing dividend distributions can make you wealthy over time – but only if you know what companies to invest in.
So, without further ado, let’s dive right into four quick picks that currently provide healthy dividends, but also represent solid businesses. Between the stock’s price appreciation and the dividend payouts, you can grow your account faster than you might think with these four selections.
Realty Income Corporation (O)
15.1% compound average annual total return since the stock’s 1994 NYSE listing… 4.5% compound average annual dividend growth since that same NYSE listing… 616 consecutive monthly dividends paid… Are you starting to get the picture?
Besides, Realty Income Corp. literally calls itself the monthly dividend company, so you won’t even have to wait the typical three months to see a distribution in your account.
In case you’re not familiar with this company, Realty Income Corp. is one of America’s biggest REIT’s, or real estate investment trusts. The company acquired properties with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $1.1 billion from October 1 through December 1, 2021.
So, if collecting 4.38% per year on your investment with payouts every month sounds good to you, why not give O stock a try?
B. Riley Financial, Inc. (RILY)
Headquartered in Los Angeles with offices across the U.S., B. Riley Financial is a diversified financial services company which caters to public and private companies and high net worth individuals.
If you’re hesitant to invest in a banking firm due to low interest rates, no need to worry. During 2021’s third quarter, B. Riley Financial’s revenues totaled $381.5 million, up 69% year-over-year – now that’s what I call strong revenue growth.

B. Riley Financial is the 1%’s best-kept secret, and now you know the secret too. With a current annual dividend yield of 5.12%, RILY stock definitely belongs in your income-producing portfolio.
Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ)
You’re probably quite familiar with this telecom giant – heck, you might even own VZ stock indirectly if you hold an index fund.
Telecommunications stocks are currently out of favor on Wall Street, which should be just fine with contrarian investors. In an expensive stock market, Verizon’s trailing 12-month P/E ratio of 9.43 is hard to resist.
You might think of Verizon as an old-school company, but it’s an aggressive competitor in the build-out of the 5G communications network. In fact, Verizon just exceeded its year-end target of 14,000 new 5G Ultra Wideband cell sites, providing phone service to parts of 87 U.S. cities, 5G Home to parts of 65 cities, and 5G Business Internet to parts of 62 cities.
Meanwhile, VZ stockholders can just sit back and collect a dividend yield of 5.07% per year – not too bad for a company’s that’s out of favor.
The Southern Company (SO)
Sure, the clean energy revolution is here to stay – but so are America’s utilities companies, which provide traditional and green power to millions of homes every day. In the case of Southern Company, it serves 9 million customers through its subsidiaries.
Southern is one of the more lucrative businesses in this space, as the company reported a whopping $6.2 billion in revenues during 2021’s third quarter. This beat Wall Street’s consensus estimate of $5.9 billion, and was 11% higher than Southern’s third-quarter 2020 revenues.
And don’t assume that Southern Company is mired in traditional approaches to power provision. By the latest count, Southern owns and/or operates 30 hydroelectric generating stations, three nuclear generating stations, 44 solar facilities, 13 wind facilities, and one fuel cell facility.
By the way, Southern Company rewards its loyal shareholders with an annual dividend yield of 4.08%. Clearly, a set-it-and-forget-it strategy with SO stock can provide strong long-term returns as Southern is a power-packed utilities business for practically any income-oriented investor.
