In this post, I wanted to present three graphs. The first graph shows the dividend yield for companies that have high dividend yields. The second graph shows the year to date returns of each of the 3 companies. The third graph shows the year to date performance of each of the 3 companies (current stock price + dividends / stock price as of January 1). As demonstrated by the third graph, New York Mortgage Trust and CM Finance have performed the best of the three stocks, but none of the stocks have performed particularly well compared to some of the other stocks examined.
