The Dividend Report - December 2021
Searching for yield is getting more difficult, as publicly traded companies continue to opt for bigger buybacks over higher dividends as a form of payment to shareholders. Yet, with the market becoming more volatile, and talk of more normal returns, its critical investors find stocks that can outpace inflation.
The Bank of America points out only 36% of the names on the S&P 500 offer yields above 2.0%, which they have modelled for as the year-end 2022 yield on the ten-year bond. Even at 2.0%, we have to wonder what total return might be in an even more difficult market.
On that note, while a 2.0% yield on the ten year was a “given” back in March, and in the late summer, the rate of the current slide is more in-line with the three-decade slide. I guess we can assume it has to reverse at some point.
But then again, we should never assume.
