I'm still on my way of building a million dollar retirement account from scratch by the time I will turn 60 (in 2045).
Right now, in June 2018, I've reached just about 1.87% from my goal. My investments this year have been spread across peer to peer lending, dividend-paying stocks, cash and of course cryptocurrencies. If you are interested in current progress, see dividend income reports.
Originally I had an idea of building monthly dividend paying stock portfolio from the Baltic equities. I have made some good progress, but starting June 2018, I'm shifting away from the Baltics and acquiring both European and the US stocks.
When looking at EU/US stocks I'm interested in quarterly/monthly dividend paying stocks. As I'm into growth phase from my portfolio, adding cash month after month, right now I'm looking for Real estate investment trusts (REIT) instead of dividend growth stocks. The reason is simple - with REIT's you can find much higher dividend yields. I'm not saying this will help to grow value in the future, I'm saying it will help to generate nice cash flow.
In today's article, I'm sharing 3 high yielding EU/US stocks yielding 8.65%- 11.04% and paying quarterly dividends in June (These stocks will pay also in March, September and December)

Volta’s investment objectives are to seek to preserve capital across the credit cycle and to provide a stable stream of income to its Shareholders through dividends that it expects to distribute on a quarterly basis. Volta Finance seeks to attain its investment objectives predominantly through investment in a diversified portfolio of structured finance assets. Volta's investment strategy focuses on direct and indirect investments in, and exposures to, a variety of assets selected for the purpose of generating cash flows for the Company. The assets that Volta may invest in either directly or indirectly include but are not limited to: corporate credits; sovereign and quasi-sovereign debt; residential mortgage loans; commercial mortgage loans; automobile loans; student loans; credit card receivables; leases; and debt and equity interests in infrastructure projects (the “Underlying Assets”).
Volta’s approach to investment is through vehicles and arrangements that essentially provide leveraged exposure to portfolios of such Underlying Assets. In this regard, Volta reviews the investment strategy adopted by AXA Investment Managers Paris (the “Investment Manager” or “AXA IM”) on a quarterly basis. The current investment strategy is to concentrate on the following asset classes: CLO; Synthetic Corporate Credit; Cash Corporate Credit; and ABS. There can be no assurance that Volta will achieve its investment objectives.
NYSE: NRZ New Residential Investment Corp (Div yield 11.04%)
New Residential Investment Corp. (NYSE: NRZ) is a publicly traded real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that focuses on investing in, and actively managing, investments primarily related to residential real estate.
We aim to drive strong risk-adjusted returns primarily through investments in (i) Excess Mortgage Servicing Rights ("MSRs"), (ii) Servicer Advances, (iii) non-Agency residential mortgage backed securities ("RMBS") and associated call rights.
Our objective is to leverage our proven investment expertise to deliver attractive returns that will help drive strong and growing dividends to our shareholders. We target assets that generate stable long term cash flows and employ conservative capital structures to generate returns throughout different interest rate environments.
Over the last few decades the complexity of the market for residential mortgage loans in the U.S. has dramatically increased. We believe that unfolding developments in the approximately $21 trillion U.S. residential housing market are generating significant investment opportunities. For example, in the aftermath of the U.S. financial crisis, the residential mortgage industry is undergoing major structural changes that are transforming the way mortgages are originated, owned and serviced. These changes are creating a compelling set of investment opportunities. We believe that New Residential is one of only a select number of market participants that have the combination of capital, industry experience and key business relationships we think are necessary to take advantage of this opportunity.
New Residential was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Newcastle Investment Corp. We were subsequently spun off as a separate publicly-traded entity on May 15, 2013. We are externally managed and advised by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC and benefit from the resources of a highly diversified global alternative investment manager.
