Market volatility, growing fears of recession heading into 2023, and rising concerns about the global economic outlook have investors fleeing from growth equities into value and dividend plays to defend their portfolios, in order to benefit from upside potential. Investors with long-term horizons and low risk appetites usually pile into dividend-paying stocks, which have historically proven to be effective hedges against inflation.
According to Morgan Stanley, high yielding dividend stocks outpaced the broader market largely in 2021 and 2022, partly due to energy stocks, as the accelerating price of oil boosted energy firms’ cash stockpiles. Similarly, the packaged food sector has dividends with a stable growth outlook, supported by resilient demand and high margins, in addition to solid cash flow to pay debts and make consistent payouts to shareholders. Regulated electric and gas utilities have mature businesses and analysts expect dividend growth of 6% annually through 2024 in the sector. Furthermore, despite credit losses rising in a recession scenario, banks could raise their dividends by up to 36% year-over-year in 2023 as per Morgan Stanley.
A look at the returns of the S&P 500 Index stocks over the last 50 years indicates that firms with increasing free cash flow and dividends have outperformed over the long-term and experience lesser volatility compared to non-dividend payers or dividend slashers. Investors are always on the hunt for dividend stocks which offer growth potential and stability (see 12 Best Performing Dividend Stocks) to navigate the turbulent markets. Popular American television personality Jim Cramer, who frequently analyzes Wall Street equities on his show Mad Money on CNBC, also recently backed dividend stocks which have a history of consecutively growing dividend payouts over the years. (see Jim Cramer's Dividend Aristocrat Stocks)

“We are meaningfully overweight energy, particularly within North American energy infrastructure. Enbridge and Williams, our two infrastructure holdings, possess crown jewel infrastructure assets. They each deliver meaningful proportions of the overall energy produced and consumed in North America. Their revenues are backed by long-term contracts with high-quality counterparties and have little direct commodity price exposure. Their growth has been driven by the increasing production of North American energy. The advent of unconventional oil and gas production (oil sand and shale) has made North America a low-cost competitor on a global basis. We expect strong North American production to be an enduring feature of global energy supply for decades to come.”
6. Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE)

On December 9, Morgan Stanley analyst Carlos De Alba upgraded Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised the price target to $20 from $14.50. China's reopening will continue to benefit miners, but the path forward will be "bumpy," the analyst told investors in a research note. He sees iron ore price momentum heading into the first half of 2023, which is supported by lower supply and China winding down its COVID Zero policy. Additionally, share catalysts for a re-rating include a potential transaction that would "unlock value" from Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE)’s base metals unit, contended the analyst.

Here is what GMO LLC had to say about Vale S.A. (NYSE:VALE) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:
“Let’s look at Vale (NYSE:VALE), the world’s largest iron ore producer, as a case study for how shareholders can be rewarded. Vale’s stock price is about where it was at the beginning of last year. Despite the market’s lack of enthusiasm, the company generated about $20 billion of free cash flow last year. Not bad for a company with a market cap of a little over $100 billion and no substantive debt as of the end of March. 4 What did the company do with all that cash? Last year, Vale paid out about $9 billion in regularly scheduled dividends and distributed another $10 billion between extra dividends and share repurchases. Combined with dividends distributed in the first quarter of this year and a recently announced share repurchase, Vale has returned or announced the return of over $33 billion since the beginning of last year, almost a 32% yield relative to the market cap of the company. Not a bad way to win.”
