In this article, we discuss 10 dividend stocks for beginners. If you want to see more income stocks for investors starting out their investment journey, click 5 Dividend Stocks For Beginners.

Some traders begin their investment journey in hopes of share price gains, but most retail and novice investors are interested in the stock market for dividend payments. Dividends are an effective hedge against rising inflation, and during the wide market sell off in growth stocks, investors poured into stable businesses that make cash payments to shareholders, including banks, oil companies, and telecoms.

Dividends are a significant factor in controlling overall portfolio risk and volatility. In terms of lowering risk, dividend payments help navigate losses that are incurred from a drop in stock price. Investors who seek passive income but cannot afford expensive income stocks like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) usually go for cheaper names that pay dividends.

Our Methodology

We ensured that the selected dividend stocks yield over 2% as of May 6, received positive analyst ratings recently, and have strong hedge fund sentiment surrounding them. Since beginners do not have a high budget for investments, we picked stocks priced under $30 as of May 6.

Dividend Yield as of May 6: 2.18%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 15

Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) is a Texas-based upstream energy company, operating conventional oil reserves located in the western United States. Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY)’s dividend yield on May 6 stood at 2.18%. On March 11, Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) declared a $0.06 per share quarterly dividend, in line with previous. The dividend was paid to shareholders on April 15.

Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) reported on May 4 earnings for the first quarter of 2022. The company announced a Q1 non-GAAP EPS of $0.51, ahead of analysts’ estimates by $0.04. The revenue of $210.35 million climbed 55.5% year-over-year, exceeding market consensus by $16.05 million. The company generated discretionary free cash flow of $17 million, including working capital of $37 million.

Piper Sandler analyst Mark Lear on April 7 upgraded Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) to Overweight from Neutral, raising the price target to $14 from $11. With Western sanctions extending to the Russian energy sector, Piper's Energy Macro team believes that the U.S. is one of the few regions to deliver long-term supply growth in crude oil. In the first season of the post-COVID recovery, the analyst believes supply chain issues will ultimately drive crude prices higher, which has positive implications for the equities despite the robust performance year-to-date.

According to the database of Insider Monkey, Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) was found in the public stock portfolios of 15 hedge funds at the end of Q4 2021, compared to 14 funds in the earlier quarter. Howard Marks’ Oaktree Capital Management is the leading shareholder of the company, with approximately 13 million shares worth $108.73 million.

Here is what Heartland Value Fund has to say about Berry Corporation (NASDAQ:BRY) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“Uncertainty about economic growth in the coming quarters weighed on Energy companies in the broader market. Longer term, we believe the capital discipline oil producers have shown over the past few years will provide support for energy prices as increased incremental demand will continue to absorb modest production increases. The Fund’s holdings in the sector fared better, and the portfolio owns well managed producers with strong balance sheets. Longtime holding Berry Corporation (BRY) fits this profile.

We highlighted Berry in the third quarter commentary praising its seasoned management team and financial strength. The company maintained its record of shareholder-friendly policies during the most recent quarter.

The move, along with compelling valuations—shares trade at just 4.7X EV/EBITDA—makes Berry, in our view, an attractive opportunity. Management remains disciplined in allocating capital, reining in debt, and focusing on high-margin production. This approach, along with aggressive efforts to return capital to shareholders through share repurchases and increased dividends, should attract additional investor interest.”

8. Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL)

Dividend Yield as of May 6: 4.34%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 17

Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL) was founded in 2007 and is based in London, leasing containerships under fixed-rate charters to container shipping companies. Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL)’s dividend yield on May 6 stood at 4.34%, above the average industrials yield of 2.36%.

In 2021, Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL)’s full-year revenue came in at $402.5 million, compared to a revenue of $282.3 million in 2020. Net income for 2021 grew 312.61% to $171.5 million from $41.6 million in the prior year.

Riley analyst Liam Burke on March 3 reiterated a Buy recommendation on Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL) and raised the firm's price target on the shares to $38 from $33 after the Q4 results were published.

Here is what Massif Capital has to say about Global Ship Lease, Inc. (NYSE:GSL) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“We initiated a 6% position in GSL, bringing total maritime transit exposure up to ~9% of the portfolio when combined with our 3% SBLK position. GSL is a containership owner, leasing ships to container companies (such as Maersk) at fixed rates. As owners, they own and manage the vessels (responsible for crews, maintenance, insurance) but do not have fuel costs. GSL focuses on mid-size to smaller containerships, which serve the faster-growing inter-regional trade routes that represent ~70% of global containerized trade volume.

As they own its containers, their business is both pro-cyclical (chartered tonnages used as growth platform by liner shipping companies) and counter-cyclical (with the sale and leaseback structures used by liner companies as a balance sheet management tool). GSL has a track record that includes both organic acquisitions and a strategic combination in Q4 2018 that doubled the size of the fleet.

We like GSL because they do not have as much operational leverage as a company like ZIM (which leases on both sides of the trade), and they sign 2–5-year contracts. Liners have been eager to secure that capacity for extended durations spanning multiple years, significantly longer than has been the case historically and well-aligned with GSL’s strategic preference to lock in value over time and provide forward visibility on cash flows…” (Click here to see the full text)
