More mergers and acquisition (M&A) news Monday morning kept the passion burning for many market participants. Kinder Morgan (KMI) is rolling up all of its publicly traded partnerships into shares of KMI to consolidate its operations at a 23% premium to Friday’s closing prices. The deal is certain to provide a boost to the energy MLP sector. At the same time, however, the month of August is historically the toughest period for the stock market to trade higher. Trading volume is light, which naturally invites a higher level of volatility that can spell trouble.

If it plays out that way,investors in high-yield dividends will have an excellent buying opportunity to catch some great prices as the market sets up for a post-Labor Day rally into year-end. At this point, the U.S. economy is on very good footing, which bodes well for persistently low interest rates and higher prices for high-yield dividend stocks — such as the three energy plays I’m recommending today: Memorial Production Partners LP (MEMP), Linn Energy (LINE) and LinnCo (LNCO).
