  • Roger S. Conrad

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.

Endangered Dividends List

Eight companies in our coverage universe have announced distribution cuts since the previous issue of EIA. We expect to see at least a like number by the time the next issue goes to post, as more management teams adjust guidance to sub-$30 per barrel oil. And we’ve accordingly added to the table, which now lists 39 companies from our coverage universes.

Our Best Foot Forward in a Shaky Market

When global markets shake, not much does well. That’s certainly been the case the past several weeks, as worries about the potential economic impact of COVID-19 have spread.

Energy stocks were just beginning a recovery earlier this year when Chinese authorities first indicated an elevated threat to public health. What’s happened since is a full-on retreat in major sector indexes, with both the Alerian MLP Index and S&P 500 Energy Sector Index taking out the lows of early 2016.

That’s extraordinary for the fact alone that benchmark oil prices are still more than $20 above their February 2016 low point of $26 per barrel and change. Even North American benchmark natural gas is trading 8 percent higher than its March 2016 nadir of $1.61 per thousand cubic foot.

Six Picks

Some investors may raise an eyebrow at this recommendation, as well as our risk rating of the midstream MLP as “Conservative.” And Energy Transfer hasn’t held up well in the COVID-19-inspired energy sector selloff either, with the share price closing in on its lowest point in four years and the yield a distressed-looking 11 percent plus.
