7 Water Stocks With the Highest Dividends to Buy Now

Sunday, 18 September 2022, 19:42:31
In this article, I’ll be looking at some water stocks with dividends. These stocks don’t have the highest dividends in the market, but they offer among the highest payouts in the sector. Aside from water stocks’ dividends, however, there are several reasons to consider investing in the sector. To begin with, water is a commodity that will always be needed. This is particularly true because water crises are emerging in several countries, including the United States. In several Western states, a multi-year drought may necessitate government restricting water use by up to 25%. And like many commodity stocks, a key reason to invest in water stocks is their reliable dividends. In volatile markets, it’s always a good idea to invest in companies that pay you to own their stocks. And then, there’s the current “risk-off” environment. In light of all of these factors, you can see why water stocks with dividends are in a sweet spot between growth and value. Many of these stocks are outperforming the market simply because of the laws of supply and demand.

The 3 Best Water Funds for Opportunity-Focused Investors

Friday, 16 September 2022, 18:53:15
Water is one of the world’s most widely used and coveted resources. Similar to other commodities like gold and oil, water assets can significantly diversify any portfolio. Accordingly, the search for the best water funds investors can buy, to provide diversified exposure to this space, is a worthwhile quest Of course, with commodities on a tear, many water funds have done quite well of late. Supply chain constraints have led to situations where utilities and other safe-haven assets have gotten bid up. Interestingly, this has happened while interest rates have risen. That’s not normally the case, since many such assets are viewed as substitutes for bonds. And with bond yields now actually providing investors with some meaningful returns, the question is whether the rally of utilities and their peers can continue. There aren’t many exchange traded funds (ETFs) that provide direct exposure to the water sector, so finding a good fund can be difficult. For investors seeking stable, long-term total returns, however, I think there are a few opportunities to consider.
