Dividends4Life: The One Sector You Must Watch in 2015

The One Sector You Must Watch in 2015

Posted by D4L | Saturday, January 24, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Dividend investors looking for solid total returns in 2015 shouldn’t even think twice. Just turn to beaten-down energy stocks. With bonds yielding practically nothing and most other traditional sectors for dividend investing looking pricey, high-yielding energy stocks are your best income bet in the new year. Never discount the importance of dividend investing to your total returns. After two solid years of market returns in 2013 and 2014, it’s easy to take dividends for granted. But in years where the market is flattish or down, dividends might be the only return you see at all.

2014 definitely was the year of the REIT, as I suggested it would be this time last year. But REITs are no longer the bargain they once were. As a sector, they are poised to finish 2014 up almost 30%. Meanwhile, many solid energy stocks are down 20% or more from their recent highs. If you believe that energy stock dividends are safe — and let me emphasize that I do — then energy stocks are the dividend investing pick for 2015. Here are some of my favorites: Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (EPD), Williams Companies Inc (WMB) and BP plc (ADR) (BP).
