Electric Sources of Energy Income

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 07, 2013 | | 1 comments »

When investors add an energy component to their portfolio, they often are doing so for capital gains exposure. That’s because many energy stocks simply don’t pay any dividends. The reason for that is because of high capital spending requirements. The truth is many E&P firms, oil service stocks and other companies in the energy sector often don’t have that much left in the kitty to pay back to shareholders via dividends after they shell out billions searching for new sources of production. It’s getting very expensive to frack a well or drill in ultra-deepwater.

While long-term price appreciation is great for a portfolio, investors wanting income from the energy patch are often left out in the cold … that is, unless they know where to look. And we’re not just talking about the major integrated firms, either. There are plenty of choices for income inside the energy sector, but you might have to look across some relatively unfamiliar names. Here are five of the best, arranged by yield: Ensco (ESV), Baytex Energy (BTE), TC PipeLines, LP (TCP), Calumet Specialty Products Partners, LP (CLMT) and BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (BPT).

    Great post on the electrics. Our parents and grandparents, etc used to invest in these for the income they provided and I enjoyed how you highlighted that they still can. This should remind your readers that our parents knew more than we thought they did... Anyway awesome post and info.
