Energy and Income: A Trio of Favorites


There are a bunch of great income investments in the energy sector right now, especially after all the cuts and cancellations we saw in 2015 and 2016, asserts Jason Williams, resources expert and editor at Energy & Capital.

Companies are coming back online. And lots of them are ready to start paying again or increase that investor paycheck. I’m personally watching 10 or so companies I’m convinced are ready to grow exponentially in the near future. And I’m going to let you in on three of the best of them today to get you started.

Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) is one of my favorite oil companies. And it’s one of the best out there. Shares are up almost 50% over the past year. And management here is super smart.

Trust me. I’ve had some long conversations with the CEO and CFO about Pioneer, business, and life in general. They don’t just go jumping into any oil field. There’s got to be a solid return on investment (ROI) for them and their shareholders.

They find a good field. Then they find some property in it to buy. But they don’t get involved in bidding wars.
They set a top price they’re willing to pay — a price that gives a top-notch ROI. And that’s as high as they go. Even if it means missing out on some good sites. And that’s served shareholders very well.

The company pays a dividend of $0.08 per share.
