3 Top Income Stocks to Buy This Month

Amid market volatility, companies with solid growth potential and impressive dividend-paying histories are ideal picks. Investors looking to generate a steady income stream without worrying too much about market volatility can add quality income stocks TIM (TIMB), JBS (JBSAY), and Blueknight Energy (BKEP) to their portfolios.

The benchmark indexes have witnessed wild price swings since the beginning of the year. Since the market is expected to remain volatile on concerns over high inflation, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, and the rising interest rate environment, investing in dividend-paying stocks to generate a consistent income flow could be a preferred strategy.

The consumer price index jumped 7.9% in February, beating the Dow Jones estimate of 7.8%. This is the biggest jump in inflation since January 1982, mainly driven by rising energy and food costs. The stock markets are expected to remain under pressure in the near term as oil prices continue to remain volatile, amid no sign of progress in talks between Russia and Ukraine. A looming oil and gas supply disruption is keeping investors concerned.

That’s why today we're highlighting 3 exciting stocks from our Top 10 Income screen, which is just 1 of the 10 screens in our POWR Screens 10 service (more on that below).  TIM S/A ADR (TIMB), JBS S.A.
