,Speaking with StarBizWeek, MIDF Research head Imran Yassin Md Yusof agrees that dividend yields in the local stock market look more attractive, following the recent selldown in equities.

IN times of a market meltdown where capital appreciation is highly uncertain, dividend stocks provide refuge to investors wanting to minimise risk.

In fact, some of these stocks turn extra enticing amid a selldown, as their dividend yields increase on the back of lower share prices.

However, with fears of a recession mounting and the risk of corporate earnings potentially taking a hit, not many companies would be able to offer a sustainable dividend payout.

Companies may decide to hold back on dividends as they conserve cash in anticipation of a more challenging operating environment ahead.

The question is, should investors start buying more dividend stocks?

Also, would listed companies be able to provide better dividend yields, going forward?

Meanwhile, fund manager Thomas Yong says that investors with lower risk appetite and looking for regular income will consider investing in dividend stocks, especially during periods of heightened market volatility.

However, he opines that it is not yet the right time to switch wholly to dividend stocks.

“This is as Malaysia’s economy is expected to perform better vis-à-vis last year and advanced economies.

“Besides, corporate earnings continue to look robust.

“Hence, it is a matter of valuation more than anything else.

“With this in mind, we believe that the market will likely recover in the coming month,” he says.

Imran, however, believes that some investors may want to increase their allocation of dividend stocks in their portfolio in order to limit the downside risk.

Yong, who is the CEO of Fortress Capital Asset Management, believes the market will remain volatile due to uncertainties of inflationary pressure and developed countries’ monetary tightening response.
