As high-frequency trading and hedge funds have become more commonplace, many investors have focused their attention more toward scoring big, quick capital gains, and forgotten about the benefits of steady cash flows in the form of regular dividends. That’s a real shame, because dividends can be a powerful portfolio tool — especially for those firms that continuously raise their payouts. Compounding dividend payments can lead to overall larger total returns than just focusing on share price alone.

So, how can investors can find those “dividend achievers” that continually raise their payouts for decades? Easy. Just read on as we look at five of the most Dependable Dividend Stocks in energy, listed by yield: Providing natural gas and propane to consumers around the globe is an immensely profitable business, and UGI Corporation (UGI) has been using the profits to reward its shareholders since 1885. While major integrated energy giant Exxon Mobil (XOM) has had some issues lately with trying to raise production, it’s still an earnings powerhouse. However, that boring nature can be very fruitful for income investors. Just take natural gas utility Atmos Energy (ATO). Like integrated rival Exxon, Chevron (CVX) is a profit-making machine. They say “If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.” That certainly has been true for investors in multi-utility Consolidated Edison (ED).
