The fast-paced economic recovery and attendant business growth should help most dividend-paying companies ensure a steady dividend payout or an increase in the same in the coming quarters. We think that amid near zero benchmark interest rates and surging inflation, high dividend yielding stocks China Shenhua (CSUAY), Volvo (VLVLY), Imperial (IMBBY) and Ternium (TX) should be ideal investment bets now.

Dividend investing is a highly efficacious style amid current market conditions, given the steady stream of income dividend-paying stocks can offer. With the Federal Reserve committed to holding the interest rates at their current levels for roughly two more years amid ascending  inflation rates, investors are parking a portion of their investable money in dividend-paying stocks to hedge against market volatility and secure higher-than-benchmark yields.

The fast-paced macroeconomic recovery should drive the growth of several industries that were hit by the pandemic. And an expected increase in companies’ cash flows should enable them to ensure at least steady dividend payments for investors, and perhaps even increased payments.

Therefore, we believe high dividend yielding stocks China Shenhua Energy Company Limited, Volvo AB, Imperial Brands PLC and Ternium S.A.are ideal bets now.

China Shenhua Energy Company Limited

Headquartered in China, CSUAY, a subsidiary of China Energy Investment Corporation Limited, produces and sells coal and power, railway, port, and shipping transportation, and engages in coal-to-olefins businesses internationally.

On June 19, Shuozhou-Huanghua Railway, a line jointly funded by CSUAY, Hebei province, and the Ministry of Railways, became China’s first heavy-haul railway to adopt a moving-block system. This was a major breakthrough in China’s heavy-haul railway technology. The moving-block system is an optimal signaling system whose safety and transportation efficiency enables trains to be controlled and kept at braking distance from each other. This development should accelerate the drive toward an improved transportation structure by increasing cargo transportation by rail.

During its fiscal quarter, ended March 31, 2021, CSUAY’s revenue increased 32.4% year-over-year to RMB67.61 billion ($10.47 billion).
