In this article, we discuss the 10 dividend stocks with over 10% yield. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 Dividend Stocks With Over 10% Yield.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas recently forecast that home prices and rent are likely to rise in the coming months as inventory constraints weigh on the real estate industry. When viewed in the context of increasing prices of everyday goods as supply chain pressures continue to wreak havoc with the post-pandemic economic recovery, it appears increasingly likely that inflation will rise. According to the Dallas bank, rent inflation will rise from 1.9% in June 2021 to 3.0% in June 2022 and 6.9% by June 2023, the highest in three decades.

Although these numbers are not positive for the overall economy, they may be good news to value investors. Growth stocks have enjoyed a record rally in the past few months, with even the pandemic pushing some growth equities to new highs as the digital economy kicked in during lockdowns. As inflation rises, value plays will start outperforming the growth-heavy S&P 500 benchmark. Investors who are eager to shield their portfolios from some of the risks outlined above should consider some solid dividend stocks to weather the coming storm.

Some of the top dividend stocks with high yields include Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), Two Harbors Investment Corp. (NYSE:TWO), Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE), and BHP Group (NYSE:BHP), among others discussed in detail below.

7. Sibanye Stillwater Limited (NYSE:SBSW)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 15

Forward Dividend Yield: 11.66%

Sibanye Stillwater Limited (NYSE:SBSW) operates as a precious metals mining company. Deutsche Bank analyst Abhi Agarwal recently initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating and a price target of $19, underlining that the firm was poised to generate attractive free cash flows in the coming years as a result of new acquisitions. The company has a market cap of $10 billion and posted over $8 billion in revenue last year.

Sibanye Stillwater Limited (NYSE:SBSW) announced in mid-September that it had agreed to acquire one half of the Nevada lithium project from Ioneer for $495 million. The deal is the largest ever for the metal which is used to power batteries.

Among the hedge funds being tracked by Insider Monkey, Connecticut-based investment firm AQR Capital Management is a leading shareholder in Sibanye Stillwater Limited (NYSE: SBSW) with 6.3 million shares worth more than $106 million.

In its Q1 2021 investor letter, Desert Lion Capital, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Sibanye Stillwater Limited (NYSE:SBSW) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Sibanye is a South African gold and platinum group metals (“PGM”) producer with mines in South Africa and the U.S. Established in 2012, it has since become one of South Africa’s largest gold producers and the largest PGM producer in the world. Sibanye also operate a PGM recycling facility and own a majority interest in DRDGOLD, a specialist in the recovery of gold and other precious metals from open pit tailings.

The investment thesis incorporates the following logic:

If central banks globally are going to continue printing money unabated, precious metals prices should rise.

The drive for cleaner and greener is accelerating. The market for platinum, palladium and rhodium is structurally attractive.

The company is generally mischaracterized. Ask around, and one will find that most people still refer to Sibanye as “a South African gold miner” with “lots of debt from that Stillwater acquisition.”

It is not quick and easy to ramp up PGM supply in response to higher demand and prices. Favorable supply-demand characteristics will likely remain favorable for longer.

Bad capital allocation decisions, corporate excesses, and resultant tarnished reputations from the previous boom period are still fresh in the minds of most mining executives. Neal Froneman has proven himself a disciplined capital allocator. His approach to capital allocation is straightforward: deploy capital at expected returns that enhances value to shareholders or distribute it via dividends and buybacks.

The company is debt-free and generating heaps of cash.

The valuation is cheap. At current metal prices, Sibanye is trading at about 5 times after-tax cash profits.

Sibanye is effectively a call option on a potential commodity super cycle. In the meantime, the value of our “option” is unlikely to deteriorate as we are rewarded with healthy dividend flows.”

6. Gerdau S.A. (NYSE:GGB)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 17

Forward Dividend Yield: 11.90%
