Stock Markets are currently volatile, with bears gripping them. The macroeconomic risks are not boosting investor confidence either. While a Bear Market gives opportunities to pick the right stocks for future gains, adopting a dividend-yielding strategy in such a market works well, says Alpha2Sigma, citing historical data.
As per the broker, high dividend-yielding companies are typically mature, limiting the reinvestment scope. Such stocks generally belong to defensive sector companies, which tend to weather volatility and economic downturn better than cyclical sectors.
The broker says that Dividend-yielding stocks should not be considered as a means to maximize returns but to generate regular income and protect your portfolio in market downturns. Here are 10 stocks with a dividend yield of 3.00% and above as per Alpha2Sigma.
