As the second quarter earnings season wraps up, investors looking to earn a passive income in order to balance out high inflation can invest in dividend stocks.
With the consumer price index up 9.1% over the past 12 months, consumers are feeling their savings being eaten away by inflation.
A simple solution to this problem could be stocks that are offering double-digit yields.
