Barclays has identified 10 European stocks to navigate ongoing market volatility, describing them as "strong long-term outperformers" — with increasing dividends. An environment of "dislocation" — when markets are volatile and stock prices are lower than fundamentals would suggest — has created a buying opportunity, according to Barclays' analysts led by Matthew Joyce. The recent market sell-off , sparked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, means that some stocks are trading at a "larger than usual" discount, he said in a March 23 research note. Barclays' analysts said some dividend stocks present "an opportunity for those investors who can ride out volatility and have a positive medium-term view." Their picks are expected to increase their dividends — payouts companies distribute to shareholders — this year, and already have at least a 2% dividend yield.
