Are Cyclical Dividends Coming Back?

It’s no secret that the major industrial and cyclical stocks have had a tough year. The dual pressures of the coronavirus pandemic and the trade war with China have simply reduced economic growth across the board. And when you build value-added heavy goods, provide raw materials/chemicals and other basic components, a slowing economy is no good for your bottom line. Like much of the market, the major cyclicals have realized declining earnings and revenues for much of the year.

And that’s led to some pretty high-profile dividend cuts and suspensions in the sector.

But the sun might be shining once again. Thanks to recent gains in manufacturing and continued economic gains, the cyclical stocks are coming back with a vengeance. Better still is that dividends are starting to return. For investors, the industrials and cyclical stocks could be one of the biggest plays entering into the new year.
