The COVID-19 pandemic had little effect on the Canadian economy, but battling unchecked inflation seems more difficult. A massive rate hike by the central bank in Canada is expected on July 13 as the inflation rate climbed to 7.7 per cent in May.
Policymakers are currently playing catch-up, and many believe rapid hikes could trigger a recession. In the meantime, many investors are now concentrating on businesses that offer dividends.
Dividend stocks might reduce the negative effects of rising inflation on purchasing power as they offer consistent cash flows. If you are looking for dividend stocks to beat inflation, these stocks might be worth considering for diversifying your portfolio:
