The S&P/TSX Composite Index was up 187 points in early afternoon trading on December 6. Canadians stocks have been reeling since a late-November dip that has been exacerbated by reports suggesting that central banks are ready to move on rate hikes early in 2022. This market pullback should spur investors to take advantage of discounts. Today, I want to look at three high-yield dividend stocks to snag on the dip. Let’s jump in.

This dividend stock offers a monster yield for investors

Keyera (TSX:KEY) is a Calgary-based company that is engaged in the energy infrastructure business. Its shares have climbed 21% in 2021 at the time of this writing. The stock is down 10% in the month-over-month period.

The company released its third-quarter 2021 earnings on November 3. Adjusted EBITDA came in at $214 million — up from $196 million in the prior year. Meanwhile, net earnings climbed to $70 million compared to $33 million in the third quarter of 2020. Keyera boasts $1.4 billion in available liquidity.

Shares of this dividend stock are trading in favourable value territory compared to its industry peers. Keyera offers a monthly dividend of $0.16 per share. That represents a tasty 6.9% yield.
