Best Dividend Stocks According To Jim Cramer

In this article, we discuss the best dividend stocks according to Jim Cramer. You can skip our detailed analysis of Cramer's market predictions, and go directly to read 5 Best Dividend Stocks According To Jim Cramer

The investing landscape has widely transformed this year as recession fears pull investors toward previously overlooked defensive securities. Jim Cramer, the host of Mad Money on CNBC, advises investors to invest in profitable companies that have strong shareholder returns. In addition to this, he also talked about loading up on high-yielding dividend stocks in one of his shows recorded in late September.

In one of his recent shows in October, Cramer mentioned that tech stocks have fallen this year because of the tightening monetary policy. However, the decline in tech stocks opens new investment avenues for investors where they can take refuge in other sectors. According to Cramer, some of the industries that investors should focus on include fossil fuels, healthcare, travel, defense, and food and beverage.

According to Cramer, the continuous interest rate hikes this year indicate that the trend will likely continue for the rest of the year. This eventually increases the risks of a possible recession. He further mentioned that though the rapidly rising treasury yields have put pressure on dividend stocks, they still offer better investment opportunities than the rest of the market. He mentioned that investors should steadily build their position in dividends to gain maximum profits.

Dividend stocks are becoming increasingly popular among investors this year as many companies reinstated and raised their payouts after the pandemic of 2020. According to the third quarter report of the S&P Dow Jones Indices, cash dividends within the S&P 500 set record payments in Q3 and saw an 8.5% growth from the same period last year. The report also highlighted that dividends are expected to reach their record by the next quarter. Some of the most popular dividend stocks include Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL), Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), and The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) as they have raised their dividends for a long time.

In view of the above-stated arguments and to further expand upon Cramer’s investment strategy, we will discuss the best dividend stocks according to Jim Cramer.
