Endangered Dividends List

By Roger S. Conrad on Jun. 30, 2018

Energy & Income Advisor sifts through literally hundreds of energy companies from around the world to separate the best from the rest. You can check out key metrics for each along with our comments and advice in the tables under the “Portfolios” tab on the EIA website.

The current issue features an updated look at the stocks we cover. Unfortunately, we found a large number of companies we track are still at risk to dividend cuts, along with a handful that are genuine bankruptcy risks.

Many of these weaklings have already cut their distributions at least once since oil prices peaked in mid-2014. As a result, they trade at much lower levels than just a few years ago.

In an unforgiving market like this one for energy stocks and particularly MLPs, however, another cut would still set off a selling wave. And that’s at the same time stronger companies that have taken their lumps are making gains.

The upshot is we want to avoid at risk dividends now as much as ever. To provide an early warning system, we’re initiating ourEnergy & Income Advisor Endangered Dividends List with the 16 companies in our table.
