In Lowell Miller's book, Single Best Investment, he referenced a study by J. Grant in the Journal of Portfolio Management (Winter 1995). According to Grant's findings in the article titled A Yield Effect in Common Stock Returns, high dividend-yielding stocks, whether from small or large firms, outperformed other equity investments during the thirteen-year period until December 1992. The study suggested that portfolios with high yields not only earned above-average rewards but also exhibited relatively low return standard deviation during that timeframe. In addition to high dividend yields, Miller also emphasized the importance of consistent dividend growth. Here is what the author said:

“We are working with a very simple idea that happens to be loaded with common sense: if a company that offers a high dividend yield is able to continuously increase that dividend, it seems clear that the company must be making more and more money, and that a shareholding “partner” in the company will benefit from the steady growth of the business. More specifically, as the dividend rises the stock price will also rise, giving the investor a gain “on both ends,” with both rising income and rising stock prices.”

Looking at more recent findings, it's evident that high dividend-yielding stocks continue to be relevant. A 2020 research paper from the Centre for Endowment Asset Management and the University of North Carolina supports this notion, concluding that investing in portfolios with higher yields provides superior returns for investors. The study, spanning almost a century from July 1928 to June 2019 in the US market, revealed that high-dividend yield portfolios outperformed both low and zero-dividend yield portfolios on a value-weighted basis. Specifically, they outperformed low-yield portfolios by 199 basis points (bps) and zero-yield portfolios by 330 bps. The report by Newton Investment Management highlighted that stocks exhibiting high dividend yields demonstrated a notable outperformance compared to the broader market during periods characterized by high inflation, spanning the years 1940 to 2021. This observation underscores the potential resilience and attractiveness of high dividend-yielding stocks in the face of economic challenges associated with inflation.

Broadcom Inc. (NASDAQ:AVGO), International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM), and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) are some of the best dividend stocks, characterized by both high yields and robust dividend track records. These companies not only offer above-average dividend yields, providing attractive returns to investors, but they also have established a history of consistently maintaining and even increasing their dividend payouts over time. In this article, we will take a look at some more dividend stocks with high dividend yields.
