Welcome to Dividend Season

Many investors are worried about volatility, inflation and the potential for a recession. Watch this short video for our perspective on what to do next.

Volatility, Inflation and Recession are hot topics this RRSP season. At NCM, we have a different perspective. We’re calling it Dividend Season. Here’s why:

#1. Dividends can reduce volatility.
Since 1986, dividend payers and growers have been 40% less volatile than companies with no dividends or dividend cuts. In 2022, NCM Dividend Champions fund surpassed the benchmark with a lot less volatility.

#2. Dividends can beat inflation.
40% of all stock market returns since 1930 have been dividends. In periods of high inflation, that number jumps up to 54%. In the three decades with the highest inflation, dividend-paying stocks outperformed the market by 3.7%.

#3. Dividends can resist recessions.
Quality dividend-payers are profitable companies with strong balance sheets and names that you recognize. In 2022, the S&P 500 was down about 18%. Dividend payers were down just over 6%. But NCM Dividend Champions actually up 1.5% for the year.
