On the journey to financial freedom, many investors and dividend investors looking to invest in the stock market are looking for monthly dividend payers. Those dividend stocks are out there, in fact, but there aren’t as many as dividend stocks usually pay quarterly.
However, we found two dividend stocks, that are Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), that pay monthly and have increased their dividend each and ever year! Time to check out these two big, monthly dividend paying stocks and see if one or both are dividend stocks to buy!

Those two dividend stocks are Realty Income (O) and STAG Industrial (STAG).
We put both dividend stocks through our Dividend Diplomats Dividend Stock Screener. Now, since they are a REIT, we have to keep this in mind: We used Funds From Operation (FFO) vs. Earnings Per Share (EPS), in order to calculate valuation and the payout ratio; which is the common method to evaluate REITs.
Therefore, our 3 metrics we focused on were:
1.) Price to FFO Ratio
2.) Dividend Payout Ratio
3.) Dividend Growth/Dividend Growth Rate
4.) Dividend Yield – as the bonus rate
Both monthly paying dividend stocks showed strong dividend stock metrics. However, there was one superior monthly dividend stock over the other!
Check out the video to see which was the best dividend stock between the two and which may be a dividend stock to buy now, at the current price levels. Also, share your comments on which dividend stock you would buy or wait on!
