5 Beaten-Down Oil Stocks to Buy for the Dividends
Crude oil’s plunge has continued unchecked thanks to firm supplies and weak demand. Since last summer’s peak, black gold has plunged about 60% to current prices around $45 per barrel. It goes without saying that oil stocks have moved in a similar fashion. The broad sector proxy — the Energy SPDR (XLE) — is off by about a third over the past 52 weeks. That drop in price obviously would appeal to those looking for long-term value stocks to buy, but another group of investors should be licking their lips: income hunters. Today, we’ll look at a number of beaten-down oil stocks to buy for their suddenly much more appealing dividends...

Bert's 5 'Always Buy' Stocks
The first question on my mind was "where do I even start?" Should I look exclusively at stocks I currently own or should I search for new stocks? Should I set a minimum yield? You get the picture. Here were some of the requirements I used to screen stocks for this list. These requirements didn't narrow my pool down to just five stocks since there are a lot of companies that meet the criteria listed below; however, based on the list below (which contains two of the three metrics from our stock screener), I know that my selection of five stocks will come from a strong pool of companies that have both a history and are well positioned to pay a growing dividend for a long period of time. My list is as follows...

For example, unlike corporate profits, a REIT's income isn't taxed at the corporate level, and therefore these companies can generally afford to pay higher dividends. With that in mind, here are three REITs our analysts think wealthy investors should love...

A New Dividend Stock Yielding Over 13% With Major Upside Potential
We've found yet another high dividend stock, with long-term contracts, and the promise of future dropdown assets from its parent company, that the market has trashed, along the rest of the basic materials universe. But this is not an oil stock. Rather, it supplies biomass, in the form of wood pellets, to power generating companies, mainly in Europe, where stiff environmental laws governing green house gas emissions are creating major demand for its products...

These Two Cheap Dividend Stocks Are on Sale
Mike Tyson once said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” Now, we may not be climbing into the ring with a professional boxer anytime soon, but the financial markets we tangle with on a daily basis also have an uncanny ability to surprise, inflict pain, and otherwise ruin our best-laid plans. The stock market decline in late August is a perfect example. A wave of selling pressure culminated in a flash crash on August 24. Many traders and investors simply couldn’t withstand the pain and sold into the panic. Once again, dividend stocks aren’t bond substitutes. Besides being properly diversified, your plan may also involve gradually reducing your fixed-income allocation and increasing your equity exposure during times of market stress. The question then becomes what stocks to buy...
