However, the stock subsequently gave up most of those gains and tumbled back to about $9. Should investors buy the pullback, or sit this one out?

    So we asked a few Motley Fool contributors to share some alternatives to GM’s attractive dividend yields. Read on to see why our panelists recommended Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI), National Grid (NYSE:NGG), and AT&T (NYSE:T).

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    National Grid (NYSE:NGG) has been about as solid of a dividend investment as any investor could ask for over the past decade. The company is the epitome of utility stocks as its regulated electricity and natural gas transmission businesses bear almost no commodity price or power-generation risk. For investors, the trade-off for that stability has been a rather slow rate of growth.

    Fortunately for those looking at these attractive valuations, oil’s end-of-days scenario is likely a ways down the road. So we asked three Fool.com contributors to highlight a stock they see in the oil industry right now that looks attractive. Here’s why they picked Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA), Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC), and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP). 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The past couple of years have been challenging for oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA). Lower oil prices cut deeply into the company’s earnings and cash flow, putting pressure on its balance sheet. However, the company has undertaken several strategic initiatives in recent quarters to overcome those issues, which finally started paying dividends in the first quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One of the biggest near-term opportunities has been in the Permian Basin where pipeline companies are building infrastructure as fast as they can. Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA) currently has $2.6 billion of oil-related infrastructure under construction, including two much-needed oil pipelines out of the Permian. Those projects position the company to grow its earnings at a double-digit annual pace through 2019. In addition to that, the company has other growth opportunities in the works, including a proposed oil pipeline in the Permian via a partnership with ExxonMobil.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One oil midstream company that meets all these criteria is Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA). While the oil pipeline MLP did struggle during the recent oil market downturn, it’s working to address those issues, which positions it to deliver better returns for investors in the coming years. Among the problems it’s fixing is its balance sheet, with Plains’ aim to get its leverage ratio to less than 4.0 times by early next year. Meanwhile, the company has invested heavily in strengthening its portfolio of fee-bearing assets so that long-term contracts now support 90% of its earnings. Finally, Plains only expects to pay out about 60% of its cash flow to support its high-yield dividend in 2018, which is an ultra-conservative level for an oil pipeline stock.
