Fast-Rising High Dividend Stocks to Generate Income While the Market Slows Down
Dividend stocks are companies that pay out a portion of their revenues to stakeholders. They make for a great income investment and if done right, can become an integral part of your revenue streams. For dividend investors, it is a good strategy to DRIP, where dividend payments are reinvested to purchase more shares in the company. This is a good strategy for the “set it and forget it” investment style.
Furthermore, in times of economic slowdown, dividend stocks are a boon in your portfolio. These companies will pay you to wait it out. Dividend stocks are seen as income generators combined with capital gains.
🛢 Basic Materials

Canadian Natural Rsrcs (CNQ-T)
A Canadian oil and gas exploration and production company. They are generating a lot of free cash flow and is managed well. They do not have a debt problem. CNQ also has an impressive history of 17 years of dividend growth. The dividend is at 4.19%
Likes CNQ a bit better than SU. But both will throw off a nice bit of cash, for a nice rising dividend which will be valuable if we're in an environment where rates slowly go higher.
Suncor Energy Inc (SU-T)
An integrated energy company based in Canada. Suncor is considered a good way to dip your toe in the energy sector since they are so big and should do alright. They pay a dividend yield of 4%
The execution has not been great. The asset reliability has come into question. The stock has lagged. Bought shares yesterday. There has been strong interest by generalist in the sector and since expectations are so low for SU, they could see SU as an attractive option.

(A Top Pick Dec 04/20, Up 23%) Improving balance sheet and expects them to keep raising dividends, paying well over 6.5% now. It's a great buy for income investors. ENB offers capital appreciation going forward. Line 4 is progressing well.

The third largest bank in Canada. They are one of the most global Canadian banks with operations particularly in Latin America. They have been the lagger of the Canadian banks and offer good value right now. The dividend yield is 5%.
(A Top Pick Dec 04/20, Up 18%) It lags its peers, but is selling at a discount based on a lower price-to book at 1.4x, yet paying a 4.5% dividend. Good to buy at current prices. The banks will do well when they can raise dividends and buyback shares again.

A global automotive supplier. They were hit hard due to reduced guidance, slow-down in Europe. They also made an acquisition that many think they paid too much for. They are investing in autonomous technology and may be planning to buy back shares.
(A Top Pick Oct 08/20, Up 43%) Value stock left behind from rotation to tech. Supply chain issues, failed takeover. Still growing at 24%, 8x multiple. A place for investors right now. Poised for the EV trend.

An American consumer products company. Analysts are pessimistic about this as they were negatively impacted by rising interest rates. Before, it was considered a bond proxy. However, in the long term it is considered a safe investment. The yield is 2.47%

Coca-Cola Company (KO-N)
The famous beverage company that everyone knows. They are diversifying away from their main activity to include energy drinks and coffee. There is still a lot of room to grow. They pay a dividend of 3.44%.

It has met or beat the street in its last four reports. And it pays you a 2.93% dividend based on a 77% payout ratio. Is…

A great company that he has owned before. A candidate to buy-hold- and forget about it. The problem is that, in the short term, it is highly correlated to the Purchasing Manufacturing Index (PMI). You need to call the bottom of the economic cycle to time the proper entry. A recent acquisition has increased their…
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ-N)
A multinational medical, pharmaceutical and consumer goods company. They are currently facing a lawsuit over talcum powder. They have good demographic support and analysts expect dividends to continue to grow. They pay a dividend of 2.72%.
