2 Stocks With Big-Time Dividends You Don’t Want to Miss

The stock market has seen a severe downswing this year amid the ongoing macroeconomic headwinds. With the Fed’s persistent rate hikes, a recession seems imminent. Thus, we think investors could buy dividend-paying stocks Global Partners (GLP) and MPLX L.P. (MPLX) to ensure a stable income stream amid these challenging times. Read on…

The benchmark indexes have experienced a freefall since the beginning of 2022 due to the Fed’s aggressive monetary policy hikes to curb soaring inflation, geopolitical conflicts between Russia and Ukraine, and major supply chain bottlenecks. Moreover, these macro issues are raising widespread recession possibilities for 2023.

“There is a slowdown happening, there’s no question about it. We are expecting a fairly weak economy throughout the entire year,” said Wells Fargo CEO Charlie Scharf.

Moreover, a hotter than expected November jobs data could prompt the Fed to raise interest rates further. The nonfarm payrolls increased by 263,000 in November, against Dow’s estimates of 200,000.

While the stock market volatility might remain, investors could buy dividend-paying stocks Global Partners LP (GLP) and MPLX L.P. (MPLX) to ensure a stable income stream.
