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.

Energy Sector Earnings: The Recovery Continues

It’s hard to tell from the volatility of sector stocks. But third quarter earnings season is going well for best in class energy companies up and down the value chain.

A lot of oil and gas in North America is still bottlenecked by transportation constraints. That’s hampering producers in many places, notably the booming Permian Basin. Canada, meanwhile, is in a virtual depression with Western Canada Select recently fetching less than $20 a barrel and natural gas at the AECO hub going for just 48 cents per million BTU.

Round Table: Our Take on Q3 Earnings So Far

Are you concerned by the large number of energy company dividend cuts we seem to be seeing this earnings season? – Roger Conrad: Let’s get one thing straight right up front. There’s no such thing as a “good” dividend cut. When a company reduces its payout, investors lose income and share prices typically fall to reflect the lower amount. That’s why we want to avoid stocks at risk of dividend cuts and it’s the reason we have an Endangered Dividends List.

Our Views On Super Majors

In this issue of Energy and Income Advisor, Elliott and I highlight another Roundtable. This time, it’s our views on the giants of the energy investing universe: Super majors, the world’s biggest non-government oil and natural gas producers.

Following the template of our past Roundtables, we focused our comments on several key talking points: (1) Our general view of super majors as investments now; (2) Super majors’ success (or lack thereof) in keeping up with the latest technologies, processes and investment opportunities in the energy space; (3) The importance of super majors’ ongoing diversification efforts, (4) The relative importance of litigation, regulation and political turmoil to our analysis of super majors and (5) Our top recommendations of the super majors.
