In this article, we discuss 10 mid-cap dividend stocks to buy now. If you want to see some more stocks from this list, click 5 Mid-Cap Dividend Stocks to Buy Now.

Dividend paying stocks are attractive for investors not only due to the passive income, but also because they act as a proven hedge against inflation and market uncertainty. Companies that increase their dividends consistently over the years despite stock market turbulence have generally outperformed the broader market. Since 1930, dividend payouts have been responsible for roughly 40% of the total stock portfolio returns. In this uncertain market, dividend returns are likely to outweigh share price gains in a portfolio.

Dividends Heading Into 2022

Historically, when share prices of S&P 500 constituents declined in the 1930s and 2000s, dividends largely offset the fall in returns. Similarly, during high inflation in the 1940s and 1970s, dividends respectively resulted in 65% and 71% of the S&P 500 Index’s returns.

According to a report by IHS Markit on March 28, the rampant inflation is not expected to impact 2022 dividend payments in the near-term. Aggregate dividend payouts in the United States are forecasted to increase 8% in 2022 to $670 billion.

In this market environment, it is imperative to look out for companies that offer attractive dividend yields, stability of performance and operations, and room for growth. Most dividend investors gravitate towards companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and Altria Group, Inc. (NYSE:MO), but in this article, we highlight mid-cap dividend stocks to consider.
