The majority of Wall Street investors are favoring dividend-paying stocks and value-added names at the end of the year, according to a new CNBC Delivering Alpha survey of markets. The S&P 500 index hit a new bear market low on Monday, taking away its previous low in June and taking its decline from its all-time high to 24%. We polled about 400 investment executives, equity strategists, portfolio managers, and contributors to CNBC money management, asking where they stand in the market during this time. the rest of 2022 and beyond. The survey was conducted this week. About a third of respondents said they are now more likely to buy stocks that pay high dividends. Unlike growth stocks, dividend stocks don’t typically appreciate sharply, but they provide investors with a steady source of income in times of uncertainty. Dividends are a portion of a company’s earnings that are paid to shareholders. The three most popular exchange-traded funds are the Vanguard Dividends ETF, the Vanguard High Dividend ETF, and the Schwab US Dividend Dividend ETF. When asked which three sectors would be the biggest winners next year, investors chose healthcare, energy and financials, which are tilted toward the value of the market, according to the survey. . Energy is the only S&P 500 sector in the green this year with a 26% gain. The healthcare and financial sector outperformed growth-oriented stocks, down 14% and 22% this year, respectively. The survey also shows that the biggest concern of investors right now is that the Fed is being too aggressive.
