Chevron stock yields 3.6% and has gained about 37%, with dividends included, this year.

Dividend stocks are facing stiffer competition, thanks to a big spike in bond yields. A risk-free 10-Year Treasury note was recently yielding 3.7%, up from 1.63% at the start of 2021. That’s well above the S&P 500 index’s dividend yield of 1.76%, making bonds more attractive for income investors.

But this isn’t the time to give up on dividends as an income source. A healthy payout stream can diversify income in your portfolio. And with consumer price inflation running at an 8.3% annualized clip, stocks with dividend growth can help your income stream hold up better than bonds with fixed interest.
