Ultimate recession asset: High-yield stocks

6 April, 2020

With Covid-19 driving stock market volatility to a 10-year high, many traders and investors are looking for 'safer' assets to insulate their portfolios from the shock, and to pave the way for future growth.

High-yield stocks are not only less volatile than growth stocks, but they also provide passive income via dividends when share prices aren't growing the way you'd hoped.

Simply: While growth stocks (like digital streaming provider Netflix) can make large gains in bullish markets, these stocks also can fall dramatically in a downturn, with no dividends to offset the losses. Dividend stocks, on the other hand, deliver two separate returns: a return via share price appreciation, and a return via dividend yields.

So if a stock has an 8% dividend yield and share price growth of 5%, your total return will be 13%. If the stock loses value, you will only make an overall loss if the fall in share price is greater than the fall in the dividend yield (in this example, over 8%).
