AMLP: What's In The Pipeline? For Starters - An 8.7% Yield

The market continues to pummel MLPs and pipeline-related stocks. The FERC decision last week accelerated the decline of a massively out-of-favor energy sector. That said, today's oil inventory report was bullish, and the Alerian MLP ETF (AMLP) remains my choice for investing in the broad MLP sector. It's a diversified fund that pays excellent income and stands to benefit from continued growth production - and demand for - domestic oil and gas. There's no K-1 to file at tax time, and the fund can be owned in retirement accounts. Yet there are risks to investing in this contrarian play. This article will discuss all of this and more.
Holdings The top-10 holdings in the AMLP ETF are shown below and equate to roughly 70% of the entire fund:

Apple: A Future Dividend Aristocrat By 2037?

As an income and dividend growth investor, I do love dividends, and so do many other investors. Not only do dividends provide a substantial part of overall total return, but they also provide passive income that you can either use to replace existing expenses or, even better, reinvest into your portfolio to nurture an (in the beginning slowly) exponentially growing dividend snowball on your quest to financial independence.
Moreover, as investors duly learn during crises, stable and proven businesses very regularly still continue to distribute dividends, with the most financially stable businesses even increasing those. This provides a real downward cushion and is just the icing on the cake.
Although there is a very long list of current Dividend Aristocrats, the dividend growth for... more
