Investing in monthly dividend stocks is a great way to supplement your income, so I’ve compiled a list of four great ones with high and safe yields over 5% that you could buy right now. Let’s take a quick look at each.

1. InnVest Reit Trust Units 

InnVest Reit Trust Units (TSX:INN.UN) is Canada’s largest owner of hotel real estate with ownership interests in 109 hotels located across every province that operate under internationally recognized franchise brands. It also owns a 50% interest in Choice Hotels Canada Inc., one of the country’s largest franchisors of hotels.

It pays a monthly distribution of $0.0333 per share, or $0.40 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 5.8% at today’s levels. It’s also important to note that the company has maintained this annual rate since 2012, and its strong operational performance could allow it to continue to do so going forward.

2. Superior Plus Corp.

Superior Plus Corp. (TSX:SPB) owns a portfolio of diversified businesses with operations in energy distribution, specialty chemicals, and construction products distribution. Its subsidiaries include Superior Propane, ERCO Worldwide, and Superior Plus Construction Products Distribution.

It pays a monthly dividend of $0.06 per share, or $0.72 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 6.75% at today’s levels. It’s also very important to note that the company has raised its annual dividend payment for two consecutive years, and its ample amount of adjusted operating cash flow could allow it to continue this streak in 2016.

It pays a monthly dividend of $0.07167 per share, or $0.86 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 7.2% at today’s levels. It’s also very important to note that the company has raised its annual dividend payment for two consecutive years, and its 2.4% hike in February has it on pace for 2016 to mark the third consecutive year with an increase.

4. Vermilion Energy Inc.

Vermilion Energy Inc. (TSX:VET)(NYSE:VET) is an international oil and gas producer with operations in North America, Europe, and Australia.

It pays a monthly dividend of $0.215 per share, or $2.58 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 6.25% at today’s levels. It’s also important to note that the company has maintained this annual rate since 2014, and although it has been negatively impacted by lower commodity prices, its strong generation of fund flows from operations could allow it to continue to do so going forward.
