In this article, we discuss 10 low beta dividend stocks with high yields. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to 5 Low Beta Dividend Stocks with High Yields.

It is often stated that high risk leads to higher reward. However, either all investors do not have the appetite for risky bets or they do not have the finances to select volatile stocks and risk losing their investment. For traders with a long-term investment horizon, stocks with low volatility are the way to go, since they can passively manage a portfolio over the years as the stock performance is stable.

Some industries in particular are more volatile. For example, the technology sector with stocks like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) experiences greater market volatility as opposed to the consumer discretionary and utilities sector, with stable, low beta companies like The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), and Consolidated Edison, Inc. (NYSE:ED).

The Fed will keep on hiking interest rates quarterly according to market reports, and investors who solely rely on their stock portfolio for passive income do not have the liberty to buy the market dips, unlike investors who are just starting out and have 20-30 years till retirement. For a stable portfolio during the interest rate and inflationary crisis that the stock market is facing, it is wise to hold a diverse portfolio with low beta dividend stocks that generate reliable returns.

Low beta dividend stocks like Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), and Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT) are highly popular among the smart investor circles.

Here is what Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Commentary has to say about Lumen Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:LUMN) in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“Lumen (39%, 4.22%; 3%, 0.38%), the global fiber company, was the top absolute and relative contributor for the year. CEO Jeff Storey took two actions this year to substantially increase the business’s value and address the stock’s enormous discount (it trades below 35% of our appraisal value). First, during the third quarter, Lumen sold its Latin American fiber for a good price (9x EBITDA) and the weaker half of its US consumer business for an encouraging 5.5x EBITDA. Both multiples came in above our appraisals and demonstrate how cheap the consolidated Lumen RemainCo is today at less than 6x P/FCF and EV/EBITDA. The majority of Lumen’s remaining EBITDA comes from its US Enterprise and SMB segments, which grow faster than Lumen’s disposed LatAm fiber and are worth higher multiples. The weakest segment of the new Lumen, the western half of Consumer, is superior to the assets the company just sold for 5.5x EBITDA. Second, Storey quickly repurchased 7% of Lumen’s shares, adding meaningfully to value per share and free cash flow per share. When the dispositions close, proceeds will reduce debt meaningfully, putting net debt right at the company’s leverage ratio target even though that target was based on the prior, inferior business mix. We are pleased that our engagement since filing an amended 13D helped the company begin to deliver positive corporate actions. The market has fixated on the potential for another dividend cut, but Lumen’s FCF is more than sufficient to cover the $1/share payout while investing aggressively into high-return, edge-out capex to grow revenues.”
