As major stock exchanges in the US took a spill in the past months, investors are moving towards dividend-paying stocks to protect themselves from a slow economy and rising interest rates. According to a report published by Refinitiv Lipper, investors brought in roughly $7 billion in US dividend funds in January, the highest since October 2006. This complies with the estimate that over 30% of the participants in CNBC’s investor survey said that they would purchase dividend stocks for the rest of 2022.

Companies with consistent dividend payments are viewed as strong by income investors because they promise regular streams of income for them, especially during times of financial instability. According to Ryan Fause, a portfolio manager at Pinnacle Associates, investors tend to move toward dividend stocks when markets become negative, as growth stocks struggle during these times. This has been mentioned in a report that from 1991 to 2015, non-dividend paying stocks returned 4.18% per year, compared with an average annual return of 9.7% of their dividend-paying counterparts during the same period. Moreover, since 1973, dividend growers have delivered strong returns to shareholders relative to the broader market.

Due to the investors’ inclination toward dividend stocks, many companies raised their dividends after the pandemic, with dividend payouts amounting to $1.47 trillion in 2021, up 17% from the previous year. Also, global dividends are expected to hit a new record of over $1.5 trillion in 2022. Some major dividend stocks famous among investors are The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE), and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), but we will explore some of the best monthly dividend stocks to buy in June.
