Final Thoughts

Monthly dividend stocks could be more appealing to income investors than quarterly or semi-annual dividend stocks. This is because monthly dividend stocks make 12 dividend payments per year, instead of the usual 4 or 2.

Furthermore, monthly dividend stocks with high yields above 5% are even more attractive for income investors.

The 20 stocks on this list have not been vetted for dividend safety, meaning each investor should understand the unique risk factors of each company.

That said, these 20 dividend stocks make monthly payments to shareholders, and all have high dividend yields.
