Dividends4Life: Mine the Energy Sector for Dividend Stocks

Mine the Energy Sector for Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Friday, August 10, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Investors yearning for yield may have pushed some dividend stocks to overvalued levels, but the energy sector offers good value, says Morningstar analyst Josh Peters. “That's the one industry that tends to have a lot of opportunity in it right now, in large measure because of underperformance,” he says in an interview on Morningstar.com. “You haven't seen valuations get marked up like they have in some other areas of the market.”

Among his favorite stocks are oil titans Chevron (Ticker: CVX) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS/A). “It would take a really dramatic and long-lasting drop in the price of oil before you would see these dividends become vulnerable,” Peters says. “In all likelihood, both of those companies are going to continue to raise their dividends.” If you’re worried about the cyclical nature of oil stocks, consider Spectra Energy (SE), one of the country’s biggest natural gas pipeline operators, Peters says.
