Retail Opportunity Investments Corp Is Still a Buy

Six months ago, the Fool's Steve Symington explained why he finally bought shares of Retail Opportunity Investments Corp. (NASDAQ: ROIC  )  for his personal portfolio. The promising small-cap real estate investment trust has modestly beaten the S&P 500 since then and, more recently, was added to the S&P SmallCap 600 Index following its latest earnings report.

Steve insists in the video below that Retail Opportunity Investments has only continued to make strides toward improving its already-solid financial position since he first purchased shares last November. That includes everything from acquiring new shopping centers and increasing occupancy rates to increasing revenue, growing funds from operations, and retiring additional outstanding warrants all the while.

Best of all, Steve still thinks Retail Opportunity Investments stock is a great buy for patient, long-term investors. To hear Steve's full take, watch the video below.

Top dividend stocks for the next decade
And don't worry; there's plenty more where this came from. The smartest investors know that dividend stocks simply crush their non-dividend-paying counterparts over the long term. That's beyond dispute. They also know that a well-constructed dividend portfolio creates wealth steadily, while still allowing you to sleep like a baby. Knowing how valuable such a portfolio might be, our top analysts put together a report on a group of high-yielding stocks that should be in any income investor's portfolio.
