Our favorite play is Gel (GEL); it sports a quarterly revenue growth of 44%, a strong quarterly earnings growth rate of 276%, a five-year dividend growth rate of 17.74%, a five-year dividend average of 6.60%, has consecutively increased dividends for eight years in a row, has a positive levered free cash flow rate of $81.6 million, and has increased its dividend from 42.75 cents to 44 cents. It also has a three-year total return of 206% and a five-year total return of 82.8%. As it is MLP, the high payout ratio should not be of concern. We cover this in more detail below.

Entergy (ETR) is a good second option; it has an operating cash flow of $2.89 billion, a payout ratio of only 42%, a five-year dividend growth rate of 9.24%, has consecutively increased its dividends for two years, and has a very strong quarterly earnings growth rate 27.4%. Investors could sell covered calls on both plays and in doing so open up a second stream of income.
