3 MLPs to Buy That Are Churning Out High Yields

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, October 23, 2019 | | 0 comments »

Over the last few years, most of the news about master limited partnerships (MLPs) hasn’t exactly been great. But despite the doom and gloom for the sector, there are still top-notch MLPs doing what they have always done. And that’s churn-out steady and high distributions for their unitholders. With more capital chasing fewer tickers, these top-notch MLPs have only gotten more desirable in recent quarters. For investors, there are still plenty of reasons to own the asset class. The trick now is finding which ones are worthy of your dollars. With that, here are three MLPs to buy today.

If there’s one firm that continues to get the MLP structure right, it has to be Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:MMP). MMP has a long history of doing right by its unitholders and the reason for that continues to be management’s conservative nature. When it comes to MLPs, the strength of the parent or sponsoring firm can make all the difference. It can also hurt as well. Both of those scenarios have applied to Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA). There are MLPs and then there MLPs. Energy Transfer (NYSE:ETE) certainly fits into the latter camp. Founders Kelcy Warren and Ray Davis built ET into one of the largest MLPS and midstream firms in the country with an asset base that can’t be beat. However, these days, investors aren’t exactly treating ET like the king it once was.

Buying and holding high-quality dividend stocks is one of the best ways for any investor to consistently beat the market over the long term. But while many people focus primarily on stocks with sky-high annual dividend yields, even more important is understanding how each company plans to adjust its future payouts. Of course, that includes not only being aware of which dividend stocks are at risk of suspending their payouts, but also knowing which companies stand the highest chance of substantially increasing their dividends over time. Let's focus on the more optimistic side of that equation. Here are two promising dividend stocks whose dividends could double going forward.

With its $0.10-per-share quarterly payout equating to an annual yield of just 0.25% at today's share prices, Universal Display (NASDAQ:OLED) isn't exactly a Dividend Aristocrat. Rather, bullish investors rightly place their focus on the massive growth prospects for Universal Display's flagship organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, whether it comes from next-generation flexible smartphone displays, rollable and semi-transparent televisions, or novel OLED lighting concepts down the road. Meanwhile, investors in glass technologist Corning (NYSE:GLW) are currently enjoying a $0.20-per-share payout that yields roughly 2.9% annually at today's prices. Similar to Universal Display, Corning has already doubled its payout from $0.10 per share in 2014 -- namely through a steady series of increases that can be credited to the success of the company's (soon-to-be-concluded) four-year strategy and capital-allocation plan, which it put into place in late 2015. Under that plan, Corning returned more than $12.5 billion to shareholders through dividends and stock repurchases, while simultaneously investing $11 billion toward driving future growth.

Imagine there’s a company offering a double-digit dividend yield and it has a rock-solid business to back its payout. What do you think would happen? Well, given the current low-yield environment, income investors would run toward a safe double-digit yielder. And as investors buy the company’s shares, they would bid up the stock price. Due to the inverse relationship between dividend yield and stock price, the buying activity would cause the company’s yield to drop. So before long, it would no longer be an ultra-high yielder. So if you see a company offering a yield north of 10%, chances are it’s not exactly perfect.

Case in point: THL Credit, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCRD) is a business development company (BDC) headquartered in Boston. With a quarterly dividend rate of $0.21 per share and a share price of $6.75, the company offers a staggering annual yield of 12.2%. And like I said, most ultra-high yielders are not perfect. While THL Credit seems to be offering very generous dividends, its current payout is actually the result of a dividend cut. Last year, TCRD stock had a quarterly dividend rate of $0.27. At the end of the day, conservative income investors would probably want to see consistent dividend coverage before making any investment decision. But if THL Credit, Inc. can keep outearning its payout, its massive 12.2% yield would be worth a look.

Buy And Buy Again Annaly Preferred Shares

Posted by D4L | Sunday, October 20, 2019 | | 0 comments »

We were asked if we tire of writing articles about NLY’s preferred shares. NLY preferred shares come with a risk rating of 1 and continually fall into our buy range. We are happy to continue in the making of money for investors. As of this article being finished, we swapped NLY-F for AGNC’s new preferred share.

And, if you haven’t guessed already, we had another buy alert for an NLY preferred share. Specifically, we sold NLY-I (NLY.PI) to fund our purchase of NLY-F (NLY.PF). A dividend capture is an opportunity to sell shares shortly after the ex-dividend date for a price similar to where they traded before going ex-dividend. Often the shares are purchased just prior to the ex-dividend date, though not always.
