Best Energy Stocks For 2023

Verizon Communications Inc. has emerged as a green-bond heavyweight in the U.S., using its vast network to raise another $1 billion to add more renewable energy to the electricity grid.

The telecom giant’s green-bond financing now stands at $3 billion and counting, with more programmatic issuance expected as Verizon VZ, -0.86% works toward its goal of sourcing 50% of its annual electricity consumption from renewable energy by 2025, and to be net-zero in emissions by 2035.

“Our strategy has been very clear, very straightforward,” said Verizon Treasurer Scott Krohn, in an interview with MarketWatch on Wednesday. “There’s nothing greener than pushing carbon off the grid by adding renewable capacity.”

In less than two years, Verizon has emerged as one of the biggest U.S. corporate buyers of renewable energy.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE) currently boasts the biggest payout in this group at 8.9%. The pipeline company can easily support that big dividend since it generates very stable cash flow backed by long-term contracts, has a conservative payout ratio, and has a solid balance sheet. However, what makes Tallgrass Energy even more enticing is its growth prospects. The company currently has three large-scale oil infrastructure investments under development, which could fuel significant growth in the coming years. As such, investors are getting paid very well to wait for that upside to materialize.

    Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) currently yields an eye-catching 9%. However, as alluring as that payout might seem, it’s not worth considering right now because of the company’s weaker financial profile. That’s why investors should forget about Buckeye Partners’ high-yielding dividend and instead examine the offerings of fellow energy infrastructure companies EnLink Midstream (NYSE:ENLC), Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX), and Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE). Each pays a similarly high-yielding dividend that they back with stronger financials metrics and expect to increase at a healthy rate in 2019 and beyond.

    In addition to that project, Kinder Morgan recently teamed up with Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE) on a joint venture that would increase the oil takeaway capacity of the Rockies region. The projects would include combining Tallgrass Energy’s Pony Express Pipeline with two of Kinder Morgan’s underutilized gas pipelines in the region that it would convert to oil service as well as building an additional 200 miles of pipeline. These projects would help boost regional oil takeaway capacity by 550,000 BPD.
