These 4 High-Yield Stocks Pay Monthly Dividends

My readers looking for dividend paying stocks and some of them also look for stocks that pay more regular. I'm talking about monthly dividend paying stocks. 

I've written in the past some great articles about the foolish thoughts about the myth of monthly dividend paying stocks but they still have a huge fan base.

Today, I’m going to share four monthly dividend stocks that you can bank on to pay your monthly bills, but with a very important note first: You should never buy a stock purely because its dividend is paid monthly. Dividend safety and growth are far more important considerations.

These are the results:

    You should check Seeking Alpha. There is currently a vigorous debate or battle raging over PSEC

    Obviously the author does not consider his own advice:
    "You should never buy a stock purely because its dividend is paid monthly. Dividend safety and growth are far more important considerations."
    I wonder where in the above piece of advice the PSEC recommendation falls.
    Also, how does LTC dividend qualify as a :high dividend yield?
