Energy prices have rallied furiously, but they likely have further to go. Oil and gas prices last peaked around 2014 and sunk slowly until the black goo hit negative prices in the spring of last year.

A six-year bear market takes more than 13 months to unwind. Which is why energy dividend stocks remain quite attractive.

Oil and gas stocks are 4% yielding on average, which is nearly a full percentage point more than we can get out of real estate investment trusts (REITs) at the moment. And as I’ll show you in a moment, we can squeeze yields of between 5.0% and 9.2% from “Texas tea” if we know just where to look.… Read more

Market gyrations don’t matter when you can generate $63,720 over the next 12 months on a capital base as modest as $350,000. The secret? Monthly cash flow that adds up to 20% average annual returns regardless of what stocks do.

In late 2007, Citigroup (C) insiders – who should have known better – comforted themselves with a security blanket that, in hindsight, was better fit for a Goodwill donation.

“The dividend’s as safe as the next board meeting,” they told themselves as the yield on their shares climbed well above 10%. On a trailing basis, that is.

Next board meeting, their payout was chopped – and their shares dropped more than 90%.

Stock yields of 10%, 11%, 12% or more are usually too good to be true. Citigroup reminded us why ten years ago, and telecom disaster Frontier Communications (FTR) reinforces the point today.…
