Best Dividend Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Sideways oil prices may limit its ability to gain in the near term. But if you’re thinking of buying Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) stock for its high yield, there’s little reason to worry.

With 2020’s troubles behind it, the integrated oil and gas giant is no longer at risk of cutting its dividend. Expected earnings for this year ($4.28 per share) will more than cover its payout.

Sure, investors still have reasons to price in a risk premium. This can be seen in its forward yield of 6.3%, which is above its average dividend yield of around 5.6% over the past four years.

First, there’s the uncertainty over whether oil prices will remain high. Lower oil prices could renew fears of a dividend cut. Second, there are issues related to a socially-conscious activist who recently won several seats on Exxon’s board. Yet, looking at the details, both these concerns appear overblown.

    It starts in 2007 when the Oracle of Omaha began purchasing shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP). By the end of 2007, Buffett had spent just over $1 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Buy Right Now

As the energy space continues to recover from last year’s blows, some of the world’s biggest oil companies have started generating healthy cash flows. After a dire 2020 — devastated by the pandemic-induced demand destruction and price plunge — the sector components have shown significant improvement in profits over the past few quarters.

Ballooning Cash Flows

The sharp increase in crude prices from the depths of minus $38 a barrel in April 2020 to around $70 has allowed the energy companies to deliver a solid financial performance. In particular, cash from operations is on a sustainable path as revenues improve and companies slash capital expenditures from the pre-pandemic levels amid sharply higher commodity prices. To put it simply, the environment of strong oil prices has helped the big energy operators to generate significant “excess cash,” which they intend to use to boost investor returns.

Let’s have a rundown on how some of the oil biggies are allocating the increasing cash pile toward stock buybacks and dividends.
