Hot Dividend Stocks To Own For 2019

The political risk surrounding Gazprom (OTCPK:OGZPY) has always been high. But it’s never been higher than it is right now. With three major pipeline projects in various stages of completion, the company is at its most vulnerable to changes in the political landscape.

This vulnerability is reflected in the firm’s year-end earnings report where, in broad strokes, revenue, gas deliveries, oil production, and gross margins were up, and bottom-line profit was down.

The main reasons for this were the Stockholm arbitration award to Naftogaz that, while still under dispute, has to be reflected on the earnings report and squaring of capex allocations versus deployment. Gazprom, according to the earnings call, under-deployed its 2016 capex budget and spent it in 2017, thereby shifting numbers around on the earnings report.

Net debt rose by nearly $7.5 billion, mostly associated with the financing deal for Nord Stream 2. The board recommended holding the annual dividend payout the same as last year at RUB8.04 per share, which translates to a 5.6% yield at a current price of RUB144 per share.
