3 Overlooked Income Stocks to Buy in July

Stocks to buy

Dividend income is one of the best ways to build and secure portfolios for the long term. When reinvested, dividends can easily become a second income later on. Take Warren Buffet’s legendary $1.3 billion investment in Coca-Cola, for example. That investment, made at the end of the 1980s, now earns him more than $700 million annually. It just goes to show that with time, the right investments can turn into goldmines. Today, I’m on the hunt for some overlooked income stocks, and to get the list, I used the following screen:

  • Debt to Equity ratio of less than 75%, 
  • Current ratio (current assets/current liabilities) greater than 2 ,
  • A strong buy rating from analysts.

Then, I sorted the list based on the company’s dividend yield from highest to lowest.

Chairman, CEO, and President Joseph W. Craft III said the results relied “upon the strength of our well-contracted coal order book and the resilience of the entire ARLP team who persevered through volatile market challenges and difficult mining conditions.” 

The company’s current ratio stands at 2.08, while its debt-to-equity remains at 23.15%. With high dividends, great financial performance, and a strong buy rating from analysts, ARLP is one of the market’s most attractive and overlooked income stocks
