Best Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

The S&P 500 Index took a slight breather this week as investors digested a mixed jobs report, tensions in Syria and minutes from the Federal Reserve that showed officials are open to cutting back the Fed’s balance sheet later this year, further reducing monetary stimulus. Despite some of the uncertainty, a handful of dividend stocks delivered clear messages with payout raises.

Six notable dividend stocks increased their payouts over the last week, including two consumer retailers, a cruise ship operator, a large beverage manufacturer and a major provider of midstream energy services.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The energy sector has been good to dividend investors over the years as companies operating in the industry tend to generate lots of cash, which allows them to pay lucrative and growing dividends. While the sector offers income-seekers a variety of opportunities, three top options to consider are ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). Not only do all three currently offer above-average payouts, but they have the financial strength and visible growth prospects to continue increasing their dividends in the coming years.
