Dividend investing has long been a haven for investors who want to receive a reliable stream of income rather than wait for capital gains to materialize. Having those dividends deposited in your account each quarter alleviates concerns that you might have to sell stock at the wrong moment in order to generate income. Instead, you keep on collecting dividends even when the market is down.

Unfortunately, investors sometimes forget that not all dividend stocks are created equal. As tempting as it may be to zero in on the yields offered by Guess?, (NYSE: GES), Darden Restaurants (NYSE: DRI), and Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, (NYSE: HOT), the business prospects of each company are uncertain enough to make them dangerous stocks to hold in conservative dividend portfolios.

3 High-Yield Energy MLPs to Buy Now

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, October 21, 2014 | | 0 comments »

For investors seeking high yields, it’s hard to overlook master limited partnerships (MLPs) and their eye-popping distributions — particularly in the booming energy sector. But although most energy MLPs blow away bonds (and most dividend stocks) with their high yields and tax advantages, MLPs aren’t a one-size-fits-all asset. First a few facts: MLPs are similar to publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) in that they’re structured a certain way that creates tax advantages. In return, they must return certain amounts of income back to shareholders.

However, the tax advantages of MLPs don’t necessarily extend to shareholders — the tax reporting requirements can also be more complex. And while REITs are required to distribute 90% of their income to shareholders, MLPs are only required to distribute the amounts set forth in the partnership agreement — although they can (and often do) increase that amount. The lion’s share of high-yielding MLPs can be found in the energy sector, so let’s look at a few choices for those looking to tap the partnership well for income: BreitBurn Energy Partners (BBEP), Northern Tier Energy LP (NTI) and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP).
