Best Oil Stocks To Own For 2019

Dividends can provide more information than just a read on the income a stock will generate. Specifically, when a stock’s yield is high relative to its yield history, it can indicate a buying opportunity. Yield anomalies like this are even more compelling when the company in question has a long history of annual dividend increases, too. This is why, if you like dividends, you’ll love ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE:HRL), and General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS).

1. A plan to fix the problem

ExxonMobil is one of the largest integrated energy companies on the planet. It currently offers investors a yield of 4%, toward the high end of the company’s historical yield range, which is the highest it has been since the mid-1990s. Exxon has increased its dividend annually for 36 consecutive years, including through the deep oil downturn that started in mid-2014 — something that most of its direct peers failed to do.

Best Oil Stocks To Own For 2019: Magellan Midstream Partners L.P.(MMP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    One way to balance the needs of income and preserving your nest egg is to invest in stocks that can pay a consistent and growing dividend. Using dividend payouts as an income stream leaves your principle intact and gives it a chance to grow over time. The trick is finding top-shelf dividend stocks that will deliver for decades to come. Three stocks that have this quality are pipeline master limited partnership Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), healthcare real estate investment trust HCP Inc. (NYSE:HCP), and alternative asset manager Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP). Here’s why you should consider these three for your retirement.

    To put a number on its distribution growth, Phillips 66 Partners has increased its disbursement for 16 consecutive quarters (every quarter since its IPO) at a compound annual growth rate of 31%. That’s roughly the target it laid out for its first five years as a public entity. That is, of course, off of a low starting base. The year-over-year increase in the first-quarter distribution was around 20% — still a very impressive number when peers like Enterprise and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) are offering up mid-to-high single-digit increases. (Kinder Morgan’s dividend growth will be huge in the coming years, but that’s a function of increasing the dividend after a painful cut.)

    Stocks that pay a growing dividend tend not only to outperform the market but to do so with less volatility. That’s why risk-averse investors should consider stocking their portfolio with companies that have a high probability of paying a growing income stream in the years to come. Three top options worth considering are pipeline giants Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP).

    That outperformance adds up over time. Case in point: Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP). Over the last decade, the master limited partnership (MLP) has tallied a total return of more than 540%, which crushed the S&P 500’s total return of around 190%. And that outperformance could continue as the MLP expects to keep growing its high-yield payout at a steady pace for at least the next few years — which makes it a great stock to consider buying.
