In this article, we will take a look at the 10 best high yield dividend stocks to buy in June. You can skip our detailed analysis of these companies and go directly to the 5 Best High Yield Dividend Stocks to Buy in June.

With the current economic risks brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, investors are gravitating towards buying dividend-paying growth stocks that have a stabilized background for a regular flow of income.

In a study published by investment company Tweedy, Browne Fund, Inc., high dividend yield equities were shown to have delivered better returns than their low-yield counterparts. The study showed that high-yield stocks produced a 13.7% annual equal-weighted return with a 15.5% standard deviation. In comparison, the low-yield stocks returned 9.0% with a standard deviation of 29.1%.

Dividend-Paying Stocks in the Utility Industry

Most utility stocks provide increasing dividends due to the company's sustained profitability over time, given its critical importance to the economy. One good example of a utility stock that continues to thrive is NiSource Inc (NYSE:NI). NiSource was founded in 1912 and has grown its user base in seven states totaling 3.5 million natural gas consumers and 500,000 electric customers. NiSource Inc (NYSE:NI) posted its non-GAAP net operating earnings of $304.8 million in the first quarter of 2021, up from $290.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. NI shares currently trade for $25.75 and have a P/E ratio of 67.23. The current dividend yield is 3.43%. The 52-week price range of NiSource Inc (NYSE:NI) is $21.09-26.60. Shares of NI jumped 11.4% over the last twelve months.

An outstanding high-yield stock in the utility industry worth checking out is midstream energy company Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM). Antero Midstream Corporation was founded in 2013 and was formed by Antero Resource Corporation (NYSE:AR) to meet growing demands for natural gas. Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) posted its adjusted EBITDA of $219 million in the first quarter of 2021, a 1% increase from $217 million in the first quarter of 2020. Antero Midstream Corporation's (NYSE:AM) current dividend yield is 8.74%. The 52-week price range of Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) is $4.77-10.57.

Companies That Continue to Increase Dividends

Many companies were forced to suspend or cancel dividends during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, according to an article published by global asset manager Janus Henderson, in the first quarter of 2021, only 18% of companies cut their dividend compared to 34% in the same period of 2020. One company that thrived during the pandemic is consumer staple manufacturer The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG). In April 2021, The Procter & Gamble Company raised its dividend by 10%, marking its 65th year of consistently increasing dividends. The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) currently trades for $135.79 and has a P/E ratio of 24.97. The current dividend yield is 2.58%. The 52-week price range of The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) is $113.76-146.92. Shares of PG jumped 17% over the last twelve months.

Another notable stock that raised its dividend during the pandemic is Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ). Despite the pandemic, in April 2020, Johnson & Johnson raised its dividend by 6.3%. In April 2021, JNJ announced a 5% increase in its quarterly dividend. Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) currently trades for $167.08 and has a P/E ratio of 29.51. The current dividend yield is 2.56%.

But dividend investing space is experiencing a lot of changes, just like the financial industry. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn't keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey's research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and February 26, 2021, our monthly newsletter's stock picks returned 197.2%, vs. 72.4% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). We were also able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that significantly underperformed the market. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017, and they lost 13% through November 16. That's why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
