Through wars and recessions, terrorist attacks and pandemics, dividend stocks as a category have always generated positive returns, even during the so-called "lost decade" of the 2000s when the dot-com bubble burst, 9/11 happened, and the financial markets brought down the housing market. Through it all, dividend stocks returned 1.8% for investors while the S&P 500 generated negative returns. The following two income stocks have been having a banner year of their own in 2022, and there could be more to come...

Profits doubled from a year ago, leading it to hike its dividend by 6% to $0.54 per share. The payout is currently yielding 2.9% annually. Pets aren't the only business to hold up well during a downturn. Tobacco stocks also survive troubled times as people continue to smoke.
