Investments that provide monthly dividends?

Hello eveyone!


I was wondering if there might be some sort of investment that i can do that would provide with dividends each month... And that you can actually do it from Switzerland



Thanks!

There are many stocks that offer an attractive dividend yield (they pay every 3 months or annually), much higher than bonds at the moment. The problem is you don't really know the future dividends and now with the upcoming corona crisis definitely you will see a dividend cut across many stocks (not all of them but many of them).

Also, in Switzerland dividend is a taxable income where as capital gains are tax free. I really don't see why the dividend is better. I would prefer to sell every few months and get the capital gain if any.

Whatever you decide to buy please consider doing it in the Interactive Brokers platform.

Hi, thanks, but i have Degiro already... Maybe i will change somewhere in the future since DeGiro doesnt seem to have a trailing option for selling stocks and that made me loose a lot on the day traidings... in fact, thats why im here asking this question

REITs and MLPs typically provide a monthly dividend/distribution.

Typically bond ETFs will pay dividends monthly. Obviously yields are low right now.

Example: Vanguard VCIT for medium term corporate bonds
