4 Big-Dividend Energy Stocks for Patient Investors
Private equity flowing into oil- and gas-related investments last year drove part of my enthusiasm for the energy sector, and so far all of those investments have bit us where it counts.

When two of the most successful private equity investors of all time tell us pretty much the same thing, it pays for us as individual investors to listen closely. With that in mind, here are four energy stocks that should provide investors with both price-rebound and income potential in the coming months and years...

But crumbling stocks’ dividends are far from safe. Of course, many dividend aristocrats still feature piddling yields — some lower than 1%. What’s more enticing to income investors is a dividend aristocrat that not only grows its payouts, but also offers a substantially high yield. So, today we’ll be looking at three such dividend aristocrats that are recording decades of dividend growth while also yielding at least 4%...
