The markets are looking perilous right now, with rising trade tensions and Federal Reserve uncertainty sparking heavy selling. While there has been a flight out of stocks generally - Standard & Poor's 500-stock index is off almost 6% over the past five days - dividend stocks are gaining a little appeal.Investors were caught off guard after the Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark interest rate by a quarter-point. Some were expecting a half-point cut, and others were expecting Fed Chairman Jerome Powell to signal another quarter-point cut later in the year (he didn't). Then America's trade war with China flared up after President Donald Trump threatened a new round of tariffs, which the Chinese replied to by cutting off imports of U.S. agricultural products and momentarily letting its yuan currency slip above a key level.Dividend stocks can help smooth out returns during volatile periods like this. Morgan Stanley private wealth adviser Christopher Poch is a firm believer in dividend investing. He writes, "In over 33 years in the wealth management industry, I have seen what works for the long-term, tax paying investor. The importance of dividends and the contribution to overall total return, for new and experienced investors alike, should not be overlooked.""Not only do dividend stocks as a group have less volatility year- to- year, they outperform nondividend paying stocks over time as well," Poch writes. "Over the last 90+ years, dividends have accounted for more than 40% of the total return equation."Here are five dividend stocks that TipRanks has identified as earning a "Strong Buy" rating by Wall Street's analyst community. Each of these stocks boasts relatively high yields between 3% and 5% - well more than the broader market's current 1.9% - and are projected to gain between 17% and 65% over the next 12 months.
