Sean Brodrick is a long-standing expert in uncovering lesser-known values in the resources sector. Here, the editor of Wealth Megatrends reviews a trio of energy infrastructure stocks that earn a spot on his buy list.
Cheniere Energy Partners LP (CQP) is down from our tracked entry point, and the company missed earnings estimates when management reported third-quarter results.
Still, the energy infrastructure operator should benefit from the fact that its revenue is locked in via long-term contracts. This mitigates a lot of the COVID-19 uncertainty, and I expect the company to get things back on track.
Consider Cheniere's robust dividend, good for a recent yield of 7.1%. Management boosted the payout by 6% this year, and it's projected to grow by 4% per year over the next three years.
Clearway Energy Inc. (CWEN) is in excellent position to benefit from a Joe Biden presidency, as he's repeatedly said he wants to transition the U.S. to a post-carbon economy.
That means using more renewables. Clearway reported third-quarter net income of $42 million and adjusted EBITDA of $312 million. Investors were pleased, as CWEN surged 5% during the following day's trading session.
Clearway also sports a solid dividend, with a yield exceeding 4% at recent prices. And that dividend is projected to increase 16% per year over the next three years.
Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure plc (AY) is already showing a double-digit percentage open gain less than a month after our official recommendation.
And the company is poised for more growth in 2021 and beyond, as President-elect Biden has repeatedly claimed he'll boost investment in the nation's physical infrastructure.
Management reported third-quarter earnings of $0.86 per share, which beat analysts' expectations by 20%. Annual earnings growth is projected at a massive 5,176%.
Favorable industry tailwinds will help Atlantica continue to exceed expectations. And its generous dividend is good for a yield more than 5% at recent prices. After growing 9% this year, its dividend is projected to continue growing at 4% per year over the next three years.
