Chesapeake Energy Corp.: Priced For Disaster

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 21, 2019 | | 0 comments »

Chesapeake Energy Corp.'s (CHK) shares keep disappointing investors even though the market environment is quite favorable for energy companies. Energy prices have rebounded and the trade war between the United States and China had been deescalated at the G-20 meeting in Japan last month. Chesapeake Energy Corp. is deeply undervalued after the latest slump, and shares have potential to double in the event the oil and natural gas drillers report solid Q2-2019 earnings and oil prices tick up.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. is priced for disaster and the oil and natural gas driller's stock price closed at multi-year lows on Friday, even though the energy market environment is actually not that bad: Oil prices have recovered and Chesapeake Energy Corp. has actually gone on the offensive and pulled off some acquisitions lately. I think investors have turned too bearish on Chesapeake Energy Corp., and the company has considerable cash flow and earnings upside in a rising oil environment. The valuation is unreasonable, shares are about to be oversold, and are ripe for a rebound.

Colony Bankcorp's (NASDAQ:CBAN) next dividend payment will be $0.075 per share, and in the last 12 months, the company paid a total of US$0.30 per share. Last year's total dividend payments show that Colony Bankcorp has a trailing yield of 1.8% on the current share price of $16.3. We love seeing companies pay a dividend, but it's also important to be sure that laying the golden eggs isn't going to kill our golden goose! So we need to investigate whether Colony Bankcorp can afford its dividend, and if the dividend could grow.

Is Colony Bankcorp worth buying for its dividend? Typically, companies that are growing rapidly and paying out a low fraction of earnings are keeping the profits for reinvestment in the business. This is one of the most attractive investment combinations under this analysis, as it can create substantial value for investors over the long run. We think this is a pretty attractive combination, and would be interested in investigating Colony Bankcorp more closely.

Five High-Dividend Stocks You Should Watch

Posted by D4L | Monday, August 19, 2019 | | 0 comments »

Income investors, including retirees, seek regular dividend income while investing in stocks. To enhance your regular income, investing part of your total portfolio in high-dividend stocks could be a good strategy. However, higher yields usually entail higher risk, so thorough research is more important than ever. Let’s take a look at five stocks that are trading with high dividend yields and the risks involved with each. The selected stocks have market caps of between $1 billion and $7 billion.

USA Compression Partners (USAC) primarily provides natural gas compression services. AmeriGas Partners (APU) is trading at a yield of approximately 11.4%. EQM Midstream Partners (EQM), an MLP of Equitrans Midstream (ETRN), is trading at a yield of 11.2%. EnLink Midstream (ENLC) is trading at a yield of 11.2%.

Boy oh boy, has CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) been under pressure. CVS stock has spent 2019 in the dumpster so far, down about 14.3% on the year now. That badly lags the 48-stock iShares U.S. Healthcare Providers ETF (NYSEARCA:IHF), which has climbed 9.9% year to date. CVS Health stock is the fund’s third-largest holding. Well, that may not actually be the case.

CVS stock has some merits worth discussing, even if some investors don’t conclude that it’s a buy. Let’s take a deeper look at both the fundamentals and the technical setup on the chart. CVS stock is fueled by incredible sales, thanks in part to its acquisition of Aetna. Analysts expect revenue of $252.6 billion for 2019, a near-30% jump from the prior year. To be sure, the balance sheet could be more attractive. But after all, when a stock trades at sub-10x earnings, there’s often a reason. With a decent dividend and solid growth though, some may look past those restraints and find CVS stock attractive.

3 REITs to Buy to Build a Solid Foundation

Posted by D4L | Saturday, August 17, 2019 | | 0 comments »

REITs are reporting higher revenue and earnings so far for the quarter. But one of the specific metrics for profitability comes from the rate of return from funds from operations (FFO). This measures the profits that REITs make from just the core business of collecting rents from their tenants. There are several REITs with significantly higher FFO returns, but on average for our collection the FFO return is running at over 10%, which remains quite positive and is supportive for higher dividend payments.

I’ll start off with American Campus Communities (NYSE:ACC). This REIT has educational properties focused primarily on dorms for colleges and universities. Next is WP Carey (NYSE:WPC) which I’ve followed since it came to the public market back in the late 1990’s. And last up is Medical Properties Trust (NYSE:MPW) which I added to the Total Return Portfolio in the March Issue. This REIT is focused on health care properties from hospitals to other facilities.
