The BEST Dividend Stocks To Earn Passive Income in 2022


Usually, Starbucks is a bad use of your money but today it could actually make you some passive income as it’s the first dividend stock in my portfolio.

Realty Income Corporation (REIT)

Well, maybe it’s not that exciting but it could make you some money as it has an annual dividend of 4.53%. A REIT stands for real estate investment trust.

Johnson & Johnson

Now for Johnson & Johnson, which is far bigger than you might realize and could be an opportunity that you’ve been overlooking. When I say Johnson & Johnson you are probably thinking about baby powder.


JPMorgan is by far the most influential bank on the planet and also a great stock with a dividend yield of 3.1% annually.


Now, I was debating whether to write about Coke or Pepsi for this next one, but I eventually decided on PepsiCo as they have been aggressively expanding into the snack industry.


Let’s talk about Unilever as this company’s actually really interesting. They’re paying investors a cool 4.56% dividend, which is pretty good if you ask me.

Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF

If investing in all these separate stocks sounds like a bit of a headache. Then you could always just opt for this one, the Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF.
