Income investors are looking for stocks that can help derive good income and not just cheaper stocks. Thus, the dividends or dividend yield comes to play an important role. Dividends are the continuous stream of income for most of the value investors, generated when a stock makes profit. Two dividend stocks are discussed as follows.
CROMWELL PROPERTY GROUP (ASX: CMW) – The company revealed the successful completion of its 2 for 13 accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer of stapled securities in Cromwell raising approximately $228 million exceeding the committed amount of $210 million announced to the market on Wednesday 28 November 2018. Generated by a long-dated portfolio of Australian commercial real estate assets, Cromwell maintains a strong and secure balance sheet and secure cash flows. These assets comprise 75% of their operating profit. The company reported a full-year, FY18, statutory profit of $204.1 million during the 2018 Financial Year. The underlying earnings were reflected by operating profit $156.8 million up 3.0% when compared with prior year result of $152.2 million. Driven in part by the successful IPO of the Cromwell European REIT in Singapore 12 months ago the total assets under management (AUM) increased by 14% to $11.5 billion. The stock price is down -0.99% at a market price of $1.000 due to the housing market crunch.
