You asked for it and we heard you loud and clear. Energy & Income Advisor’s International Portfolio, which features our top picks from Australia and Canada, launched this month in the website’s Model Portfolios section.
Here, you’ll find the 20 charter members grouped by potential risk and reward.
Names in the conservative category have less exposure to commodity prices, solid balance sheets and sustainably growing dividends–all qualities that are critical to building wealth over the long term.
This segment consists of utilities, pipeline owners and other outfits that generate the majority of their cash flow from reliable, fee-based businesses.
Our objective for the lower-risk portion of the International Energy Portfolio: less volatility and an average annual return of about 10 percent, including dividends and price appreciation.
In contrast, the aggressive portion of the International Portfolio comprises names that operate businesses where earnings fluctuate with energy prices. Here, our selections seek to compensate for greater volatility with the promise of superior annual returns over the long haul.
Seven of the International Portfolio’s aggressive holdings produce oil and gas, a business that necessarily entails some exposure to commodity prices–regardless of the extent to which these upstream operators hedge their anticipated output.
What sets these names apart from the competition? Our picks continue to grow production and reserves while being good stewards of capital. Because these companies’ earnings and share prices fluctuate with energy prices, we expect to take profits occasionally along the way.
We’re also ready to replace any of our International Portfolio holdings if their underlying businesses falter. I’ve followed all these names for many years. And we’ll continue to put each company under the microscope each quarterly earnings season.
