Dividend stocks are in the limelight these days as risk of a recession grows and investors turn to stable stocks that promise regular income. Since 1960, high dividend stocks outperformed the broader market index in 7 out of 10 rising interest rate periods, according to a report by Global X.

Andrew McOrmond, a managing director at WallachBeth Capital, recently asserted that high yields are the only way to weather the unstable market conditions. He further mentioned that companies with strong dividend histories have stood the test of time and performed better than their non-dividends peers during market cycles, providing investors with solid investment options.

Though analysts were not very much confident about dividends and buybacks in 2022, the assets of dividend funds have reached $3 billion in June and $43 billion this year so far. Moreover, iShares Core High Dividend ETF, which tracks famous dividend stocks such as The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), was up 3.9% through May.
