Is It Time to Dump the Market's Hottest Dividends?

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Jim Royal and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics around the investing world.

Mortgage REITs such as Annaly Capital, Armour Residential, and American Capital Agency have all seen a sequential drop in their interest-rate spreads during the fourth quarter. That has many investors worried about where these stocks' huge dividends -- the very reason investors own these REITs -- are headed. Investors need to remain cautious on these companies, but with funding costs likely to continue to be low as the Federal Reserve keeps rates near zero through 2014, it looks like there's still some time to profit in these REITs.

If you're interested in some of these dividends on your quest for high-yielding stocks, The Motley Fool has compiled a special free report outlining our nine top dependable dividend-paying stocks. It's called "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks." You can access your complimentary copy today at no cost! Just click here to discover the winners we've picked.
