Canadian investors are faced with economic and market uncertainty in late 2022. The Bank of Canada (BoC) moved to aggressively raise benchmark interest rates to fight high inflation. Progress has been slow, and investors need to consider their strategy in this climate. Today, I want to look at five discounted TSX dividend stocks that can deliver consistent and high-yield income. That will provide some dependability in this volatile period. Let’s jump in.
This bank stock offers a delicious yield ahead of earnings season
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (TSX:CM) is the fifth largest of the Big Six Canadian bank stocks. Shares of this dividend stock have dropped 13% in 2022 as of early afternoon trading on November 24. That has pushed the stock into negative territory in the year-over-year period.
This bank is set to release its final batch of fiscal 2022 results on December 1. In the third quarter (Q3) of 2022, CIBC saw adjusted net income slip 5% from the prior year to $1.72 billion, or a 6% drop to $1.85 on a diluted per-share basis.

Moreover, BCE also owns a lucrative media division. This dividend stock is down 3.1% so far in 2022. The stock has dropped 1.9% year over year.
