2 Cheap Dividend Stocks You Can Buy Right Now

Dividend income can be a great way to boost your portfolio’s value over the long term. Amid a recession, it can also be valuable source of cash flow at a time when returns may not be so strong. And in good times, it can pad your total returns. 

Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Kroger (NYSE:KR) are two companies with shares currently selling at fair prices and that pay better than the 2% yield you can expect from the average S&P 500 stock. Let’s take a closer look at why investors should consider scooping up their shares today.

While I will be offering my personal opinion, I hope that some of the current facts will support my thesis. Of course we all know about how AT&T (T) has made so many mistakes in the last few years, and the debt level is greater than we want, but let me ask this question: Is AT&T going out of business anytime soon?

Needless to say I believe that T will be around for a long time. While I have no idea what years from now will look like, and I am not 100% certain about the lofty dividend going forward, I do believe that given the business that T is in, and the cash flow generated by ongoing operations, my gut says that T will keep paying and growing its dividend and eventually become a dividend king.

While that is my opinion, I realize that anything can happen

Looking to make a passive income? I’d buy these 2 cheap UK dividend shares in an ISA today

The passive income potential of UK dividend shares continues to be relatively high, even after the stock market crash. Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares offer impressive yields that could provide you with a growing income return.

With that in mind, here are two British shares that offer generous yields and the prospect of growing dividends. Buying them in a tax-efficient account, such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, could allow you to enjoy a rising income in the long run.

Improving passive income prospects

BAE Systems (LSE: BA) offers a relatively attractive passive income for investors. The aerospace and defence company’s half-year results were relatively positive. This allowed it to resume dividend payments after pausing them during the earlier part of 2020 in response to a rapidly-changing operating outlook.

The company currently has a yield of around 5%. Its dividend payouts are expected to be covered almost twice

3 Great Dividend Stocks to Buy in October

Dividends are great wealth builders. That’s evident from the data as companies that consistently increase their dividends tend to routinely beat the market. While that suggests investors should focus less on a stock’s dividend yield and more on its growth prospects, sometimes you can have your proverbial cake and eat it too. 

That’s clear in the list of stocks our contributors came up with when we asked them for their top dividend stock to buy this October. In selecting Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE:BIP)(NYSE:BIPC), Enbridge (NYSE:ENB), and 3M (NYSE:MMM), they highlighted stocks that offer yields well above average, with compelling upside potential.

5 Cheap Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy Amid Volatility

Stock market volatility and near-zero interest rates have been driving the appeal for dividend investing. Though the strategy doesn’t offer dramatic price appreciation, it is a major source of consistent income in the form of an increase in the payouts in any type of market.

Stocks that have a strong history of dividend growth as opposed to those that offer high yields form a healthy portfolio with more scope for capital appreciation.

Peeping Into the Strategy

Stocks that have a strong history of dividend growth belong to mature companies, which are less susceptible to large swings in the market, and thus act as a hedge against economic or political uncertainty as well as stock market volatility. At the same time, these offer downside protection with their consistent increase in payouts.

Additionally, these stocks have superior fundamentals that make dividend growth a quality and promising investment for the long term. These
