I’d avoid buy-to-let and consider these FTSE 100 dividend stocks instead

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. It builds over 16,000 new homes a year in over 380 locations in the UK. But the company has some issues. Over the years there has been lots of negative publicity about poorly-built homes while management continues to be rewarded with very generous pay packets.The financial fundamentals for this company make it look like a no-brainer Buy, but as that weak reputation shows, it’s not without risk. Add to that the fact that Brexit uncertainty is far from over and calls for the government to inspect the housebuilding sector for fire risk, among other hazards, pose a threat to its continued success. The dividend yield is tempting, but I’d buy with caution and keep a close eye on sector news.Turnaround to profitAnother FTSE 100 company I’d consider is Melrose Industries (LSE:MRO), a specialist manufacturing investor.Melrose buys struggling industrial businesses and turns them around to make a profit for investors. Its strategy has paid off. Its share price has skyrocketed 42% in the past year and over 355% in the past five years. Shareholders are happy and there could be more to come.The company is considering a $3bn sale of its Nortek Air business along with a sale of its Brush power generation equipment unit, thought to be worth around $131m.Melrose bought FTSE 100 contemporary and engineering giant GKN for £8bn in 2018. This appears to have been a good move, and the turnaround plan is going well. Investors are waiting patiently with anticipation of generous profits to come.Melrose has a 2% dividend yield and a 48% debt ratio due to strong cash generation. Its P/E is around 16, which is close to the industrial sector average. I think it looks like a good company to add to a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio. Buy-to-let property can be an enticing venture for anyone with a bit of spare cash. Browsing online estate agents can throw up hundreds of properties that give the illusion of being a bargain buy. However, it doesn’t take much to realise the time, effort and cost involved in buy-to-let are vast.If you get lucky, you might purchase a property in an up-and-coming area that increases in value. However, that’s rarely the case these days. And most properties also need repairs, updates or alterations before they can be let.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…From buy-to-let to buy-and-holdAn alternative to buy-to-let properties is investing your money in the stock market. If property interests you, then the housebuilding sector may appeal.Housebuilder Persimmon (LSE:PSN) benefited from the December election result that brought a little more stability to an uncertain sector. Persimmon’s share price has increased by 29% since the election and its margins continue to grow.The FTSE 100 company has a market cap of £10bn, its price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is under 12 and earnings per share are £2.77. But most enticing of all is its generous 7.4% dividend yield.
