10 Monthly Dividend Stocks with Over 5% Yield

In this article, we discuss 10 monthly dividend stocks with over 5% yield. If you want to see more stocks in this selection, check out 5 Monthly Dividend Stocks with Over 5% Yield

During a difficult time for the capital markets in 2022, dividend-paying stocks proved to be a strong investment, outperforming both non-dividend stocks and bonds during the year. Even with a sluggish economy, market specialists remain optimistic about the growth of dividends. This is due to the conservative dividend payout ratios, which provide companies with sufficient buffers to keep increasing dividends even in the face of slowing or declining earnings growth. Concerns about inflation persist in 2023. Dividend-growing stocks can perform well during inflationary periods because, unlike bonds with fixed interest payments, the increasing dividends can help counter the impact of inflation and maintain purchasing power.

Dividends have made a substantial contribution to the returns earned by investors over the past half-century. From 1960 till present, reinvested dividends and the impact of compounding have accounted for 84% of the total return of the S&P 500 Index. From 1930 to 2021, the average contribution of dividend income to the total return of the S&P 500 Index was 40%.

ClearBridge Investments, a leading global equity manager with $151.3 billion in assets under management as of December 31, 2022, announced that it will target companies with the ability to increase prices in response to inflationary pressures, thus preserving their profitability. The firm has a positive outlook on financial sector companies, as they can benefit from rising interest rates and a strong labor market, thus maintaining high credit quality. ClearBridge also anticipates that the energy sector will remain a key contributor to dividend returns, due to its strength and the financial stability of some of the companies within the sector. The firm considers investing in dividends to be a timeless strategy.

Monthly dividend stocks offer consistent and growing income, improved reinvestment opportunities, and a potential for higher yield. While investors usually pick up dividend names like The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), we discuss monthly dividend payers in this article.
