In this article, we will be taking a look at 10 extreme dividend stocks with upside potential. To skip our detailed analysis of dividend investing, you can go directly to see the 5 Extreme Dividend Stocks with Upside Potential.

Dividend investing has been an attractive prospect for individual investors and hedge funds alike for many years. In 2022, this trend is continuing to hold true, according to an RBC Wealth Management report from this February. It is indicated that dividends per share can be expected to accelerate in 2022, due to the economic strength of dividend-yielding companies and the uncertainty surrounding the receding pandemic. Additionally, the report mentions that the Federal Reserve's current monetary policy shift has also led to a boost in dividend stock popularity relative to the market. This is in light of the fact that a tighter monetary policy is pressuring corporate bond prices and discouraging investors from picking bonds as their preferred securities.

As such, it is forecasted that incremental asset flows will be redirected into dividend stocks such as PepsiCo, Inc. (NASDAQ:PEP), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), and Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE:MO) this year. This is in light of the fact that S&P 500 dividends per share grew by 5% in 2021 according to RBC Wealth Management. The consensus forecast for 2022 on the matter of dividend growth shows an even greater increase of 8%. The above is also evidenced by a record amount of money being poured into exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, that are dedicated to big dividend payouts, according to a Bloomberg report this June. So far this year, ETFs tracking the highest-yielding dividend stocks have brought in $25 billion in assets. It is also expected that this inflow would reach about $50 billion by the end of 2022, according to Eric Balchunas, a Bloomberg Intelligence senior ETF analyst.

Investors are steadily beginning to prefer high-dividend ETFs over bonds. Mr. Balchunas has noted that since investors are wary of the bond market in light of the Federal Reserve's plans to raise interest rates, most investors are flocking to dividend ETFs. Energy companies are also becoming a target for these investors as they often offer high yields. The energy sector has also proven to be the only sector in the S&P 500 Index that has managed to remain unscathed in 2022 in light of the Russia-Ukraine conflict which has damaged most sectors. The energy sector has risen by 29% in comparison, as of this June, while the broader benchmark has gone down by 18%. Since quite a few of the high-dividend ETFs investors are pouring into this year are tracking energy companies with stakes approaching 20%, the performance of these ETFs is also steadily improving, making them attractive investment options.
