7 Energy Stocks That Pay Healthy Dividends

Posted by D4L | Saturday, February 11, 2017 | | 0 comments »

As income investors, you want to invest in companies that can provide a healthy stream of income in the long term. Fortunately, within the energy sector, there are companies whose businesses were not affected that much, even with the huge tumble in commodity prices. Those companies are probably better bets for income investors than those energy stocks that have double-digit yields today. One group of energy stocks that can be a good fit for an income portfolio is midstream partnerships. These partnerships manage the transportation and storage of energy products. Because they are not drilling new wells, they are less concerned with the fluctuations in oil prices.

Another group of energy dividend-paying stocks is utilities. No matter where you live, you likely have to pay utility bills every month. Whether it’s electricity or natural gas, this is what consumers and businesses need on a daily basis. As a result, utility stocks are known for providing a stable income to dividend investors. On top of that, because it takes a lot of resources to build the infrastructure needed to deliver gas, water, and electricity to households, it doesn’t make sense to have two utility companies providing the same service in the same area. That’s why governments allow utility companies to operate as monopolies in their respective municipalities. Below I have compiled a list of seven energy stocks that pay a healthy dividend: Blueknight Energy Partners L.P. (BKEP), Enviva Partners LP (EVA), Buckeye Partners, L.P. (BPL),National Grid plc (NGG), Southern Co (SO), Duke Energy Corp (DUK) and Phillips 66 Partners LP (PSXP).
