12 Cheap High Dividend Stocks To Buy Right Now

In this article, we discuss 12 cheap high dividend stocks to buy right now. You can skip our detailed analysis of dividend stocks and their performance over the years, and go directly to read 5 Cheap High Dividend Stocks To Buy Right Now

Dividend stocks have become increasingly popular. When considering investment in them, the emphasis is often on high yields. Investors prioritize high yields because they contribute to the overall return on investment, alongside the increase in the stock's value. The goal is to maximize returns by combining the income earned from dividends with the potential for the stock's price to go up.

Over time, multiple reports have pointed out the impressive performance of stocks that offer high dividends. The S&P Sector-Neutral High Yield Dividend Aristocrats, which tracks the performance of high-yielding dividend stocks including Broadcom Inc. (NASDAQ:AVGO), International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM), and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), showed less overall volatility for the period between Jan. 31, 2005, and July 31, 2023 compared to the benchmark, resulting in better returns when accounting for risk. Moreover, the maximum drop in value during that time was reduced by about 5%, as reported by S&P Dow Jones Indices. The report also mentioned that the index has acted as a safeguard during times of volatility as it generally performed better than the benchmark, especially when the VIX level exceeded 20, and it showed the most significant outperformance when the VIX level was above 30. The index is down by just 0.34% year-to-date compared with a 3.46% decline in the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index.

Given the strong performance of high dividend yields in the past, investors often consider a wise strategy of investing in cheap dividend stocks with high yields. By combining high yields with the potential for stock price appreciation, investors aim to maximize their overall return on investment. Newton Investment Management, a London-based firm, published a report on dividend stocks in April this year. The report emphasizes the comparison between the valuation of stocks with higher yields and those with lower yields. As of April, stocks with above-average yields are priced significantly lower than stocks with below-average yields when considering metrics like price-to-book (P/B) and price-to-earnings (P/E).

The report also referred to a 2020 research paper from the Centre for Endowment Asset Management and the University of North Carolina and found that investing in portfolios with higher yields provides better returns for investors. The study, spanning nearly a century from July 1928 to June 2019, indicates that higher-yielding dividend stocks tend to yield higher future returns based on the data analysis. In this article, we will take a look at some of the best cheap dividend stocks with high yields.
