Stagflation is already here, with the economy weakening quickly and inflation raging at 40-year highs.
Most economists expect inflation to peak soon, but some think it might keep rising as high as 11% by year-end and remain elevated for much of 2023.
Fortunately, high-yield aristocrats in the healthcare, utility, REIT, and energy sectors are historically some of the best ways to beat stagflation and retire in safety and splendor.
Here are six stagflation-beating high-yield aristocrats you can trust no matter what’s coming next for inflation and the economy.
Combined, they yield a very safe 4.3%, are 18% undervalued, trade at 12.9X earnings, and analysts expect 24% annual returns through 2024. More importantly, these low volatility aristocrats are expected to deliver market-beating long-term returns, just as they have for the last 26 years.
They are also expected to deliver 14% annual income as they have since 1996 when they’ve paid 7.2X your initial investment in dividends, 5X more than the S&P 500.
