Buying the right high-yielding stocks presents a challenge. These two companies present a good opportunity.
The markets have been in a tailspin recently and for opportunistic investors, it's a great time to secure great dividend stocks at discounted prices. When dividend stocks drop in value, investors earn higher yields and get more bang for their investment bucks. Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ: WBA) and International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM) are top dividend stocks that pay much better than the average S&P 500 yield of 2%, and they've both fallen in price this year.
Every year since 1894, the first Monday in September has been a federally recognized holiday to "celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers," according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has potentially cancelled or subdued friend or family get-togethers, as well as vacations. About the only thing that feels normal this year is the fact that retailers are aggressively advertising Labor Day sales to lure in physical and online shoppers.
