In this article, we will take a look at 10 dividend stocks with over 8% yield. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, the concept behind dividend investing, and the performance of dividend stocks over the years, you can go directly to 5 Dividend Stocks With Over 8% Yield.

A report put forward by Global X suggests that high-yielding dividend stocks have generated an annual dividend yield of 6.4%. The report was compiled based on the highest paying dividend stocks between the years 1960 and 2017. Among other key findings of the study, it was also identified that in 7 out of 10 rising interest rate periods since 1960, stocks that came with high yields outperformed the S&P 500, which suggests dividend stocks to be robust in changing economic conditions. Moreover, the stocks that were part of this study were found to have outperformed the S&P 500 by approximately 3% on an annual basis.

According to The Power of Dividends, a report by Hartford Funds, 84% of the total return of the S&P 500 Index can be attributed to reinvested dividends and compounding since 1970. Moreover, the report also shows that between the years 1930 and 2020, high-yielding dividend stocks outperformed the S&P 500 index by 77.8% of the time while low-yielding stocks managed to outperform the S&P 500 index by about 44.4% of the time.

Apart from dividend investing being a source of passive income, dividend stocks have helped investors keep their chins up and head high in these volatile times. Some of the most popular dividend stocks include AbbVie Inc. (NYSE:ABBV), Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and the Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG). These companies are dubbed as the "dividend aristocrats" since they have consistently announced dividend hikes for over 25 years.
