  • 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.


Dumping the Weak, Adding to the Strong

The rally in energy stocks from mid-March has taken a breather. On June 8, the S&P 500 Energy Sector Index reached its highest point since early February, up 97 percent from its March 18 low. A few days later, it was down more than 17 percent.

Other indexes have followed the same pattern. Super majors-focused NYSE Arca Oil Index (NYSE: XOI) returned better than 105 percent from mid-March to June 8, only to give back roughly 17 percent. And the midstream-heavy JP Morgan Alerian MLP Index ETN (NYSE: AMJ) retreated 16 percent, after running higher by 152 percent.

Endangered Dividends List

Just one energy company in our coverage universe has cut its dividend since the May 31 issue of Energy and Income Advisor went to post. Helmerich & Payne’s (NYSE: HP) reduction to 25 cents per share from 71 cents the previous quarter follows what’s been an all-too-familiar pattern for contract drillers and energy services firms this year. As oil and gas producers have reined in drilling activity, cash flows have dropped sharply.
