Promising Dividends in Oilfield Services

Posted by D4L | Sunday, May 01, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Dividend payers deserve a berth in any long-term stock portfolio. But seemingly attractive dividend yields are not always as fetching as they may appear. Let's see which companies in the oilfield services industry offer the most promising dividends. Before we get to those companies, though, you should understand just why you'd want to own dividend payers. These stocks can contribute a huge chunk of growth to your portfolio in good times, and bolster it during market downturns.

As I see it, within this group, Core Laboratories, RPC, and Schlumberger offer the most attractive dividend combinations, though their low current yields are not ideal. Exterran is also worth watching. These companies offer some income now and a chance of strong dividend growth in the future. In fairness, you may find other industries more attractive for dividends; take a gander at pharmaceuticals, shipping, tobacco, and coal.
