Roger S. Conrad needs no introduction to individual and professional investors, many of whom have profited from his decades of experience uncovering the best dividend-paying stocks for accumulating sustainable wealth.

Roger built his reputation with Utility Forecaster, a publication he founded more than 20 years ago that The Hulbert Financial Digest routinely ranked as one of the best investment newsletters. He’s also a sought-after expert on master limited partnerships (MLP) and former Canadian royalty trusts.

In April 2013, Roger reunited with his long-time friend and colleague, Elliott Gue, becoming co-editor of Energy & Income Advisor, a semimonthly online newsletter that’s dedicated to uncovering the most profitable opportunities in the energy sector.

Although the masthead may have changed, readers can count on Roger to deliver the same high-quality analysis and rational assessment of the best dividend-paying utilities, MLPs and dividend-paying Canadian energy names.

Digging Deeper into MLPs

After plunging almost 50 percent from early May 2015 to mid-February 2016, the Alerian MLP Index has defied the critics and torched slow-to-react short sellers by surging 45 percent since its nadir. But the easy money has been made: Investors must now focus on which names are best-positioned to grow in an environment where energy prices remain lower for longer.

MLP Watch List

The three master limited partnerships (MLP) on our watch list share several qualities: strong balance sheets, solid management teams and well-positioned asset bases that will generate organic growth in the intermediate term.

Facing the Fear of Missing Out

The recent rally in the energy sector has lifted all boats, including the worm-ridden ones; investors should take advantage of this opportunity to exit any of the Sell-rated names in our coverage universe.

In fact, many of the weakest energy stocks have posted the biggest gains, suckering in momentum-seeking investors with a fear of missing out. These companies, many of which were raised on $100 per barrel oil, lack the balance sheet and franchise assets to survive in an environment where West Texas Intermediate ranges between $40 and $60 per barrel.

Investors must also stay disciplined. Most of our Portfolio holdings trade above our dream prices, and some have rallied beyond our value-based buy targets.

As such, investors should consider taking a partial profit off the table in any of their big winners and reserve this cash for future pullbacks.
