12 Monthly Dividend Stocks with Over 5% Yield

In this article, we discuss 12 monthly dividend stocks with over 5% yield. You can skip our detailed analysis of dividend stocks and their performance in the past, and go directly to read 5 Monthly Dividend Stocks with Over 5% Yield

During periods of financial instability, investors often focus on stocks that generate consistent income to stabilize their earnings. Dividend stocks have a history of performing well because they offer a reliable source of income. Numerous studies have underscored the significance of dividend stocks. By examining Bloomberg data spanning the last two decades, it was observed that when stocks paying dividends performed better than the Russell 1000 Value index, those without dividends tended to perform worse, and vice versa, occurring approximately 56% of the time. Sterling Capital's report highlighted that, over the twenty-year period, dividend-paying stocks tended to outperform on a quarterly basis more often than they underperformed, in contrast to stocks without dividends.

After distributing record dividends in the previous year, U.S. companies continue to demonstrate resilience this year. According to the most recent quarterly report from Janus Henderson, a U.K.-based fund manager that analyzes the world's top 1,200 publicly traded companies by market value, it was found that 98% of surveyed U.S. companies did not reduce their dividends. This figure stands in contrast to the global trend, where 89% of companies worldwide did not trim their dividends. The report also mentioned that the growth of dividends in the US  has been slowing for eight consecutive quarters, reflecting concerns about the economy after the Federal Reserve aimed to control inflation through higher interest rates. Despite this slowdown, the U.S. is on track to achieve a record payout for 2023, with $146.6 billion distributed in the third quarter.

Ben Lofthouse, head of global equity income at Janus Henderson, has given a positive outlook on dividend stocks this year, despite a weakness in global dividends. Here is what he said:

"It is quite common and well-understood by investors that commodity dividends will rise and fall with the cycle, however, so this weakness does not suggest wider malaise."

The frequency at which dividends are paid, whether monthly or quarterly, can impact an investor's cash flow and financial planning. For those seeking regular income, more frequent dividend payments can provide a steady stream of funds. Quarterly dividends, in particular, are common among many companies. Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), and Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) are some of the best dividend stocks that pay quarterly dividends to shareholders. However, we will discuss dividend stocks that pay monthly dividends and have yields above 5%.
