Dividends4Life: The Safest 9.9% Yield in Today’s Market?

The Safest 9.9% Yield in Today’s Market?

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, February 13, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Consider this: companies in the S&P 500 Index have a historical average dividend yield of 4.36%. Today, the average yield of the benchmark index has dropped to 1.75%. (Source: “S&P 500 Dividend Yield,” Multpl.com, last accessed January 19, 2018.) However, long-term readers of Income Investors would know that there are still places in today’s market where you can find much higher yields. These generous dividend payers include real estate investment trusts (REITs), energy partnerships, and business development companies (BDCs).

Today, I would like to show you one of the safest ultra-high yielders in today’s market, Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:ARLP). Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Alliance Resource is a master limited partnership (MLP) coming from the coal industry. It controls more than 1.7 billion tons of coal reserves and has mining operations in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia, and Maryland. The business is quite easy to understand: Alliance Resource produces a diverse range of steam coals (also known as thermal coal, which is fired into a boiler to produce heat) and sells them to a broad range of customers. In particular, the partnership has established itself as a preferred supplier of thermal coal to large utilities and industrial customers in the U.S.
