  • A High Yield Oil & Gas Portfolio

    Even when the Federal Reserve has already decided to start diminishing the rate at which its buying securities, interest rates are still at record low levels. Hence, its still very tough to get decent yields through buying high grade bonds with maturities below 15 years. If rates start going up, high grade bond prices should plunge, and this makes them risky at current market prices. On the other hand, we can find most international corporations increasing their cash returns to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. Here I chose three high quality oil and gas stocks that are poised to keep paying high cash dividend yields.

  • Scott Black, Delphi Management Recommends Stocks

    Scott Black, founder of the Boston-based firm Delphi Management, gives his stock picks on CNBC: Myriad Genetics (MYGN) and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS).


  • You Should Consider Royal Dutch Shell

    Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A), which is held by Scott Black and Tweedy Browne, is a wonderful asset for any long term portfolio looking for a high and sustainable cash dividend yield and future growth potential. Since 2005, Shell has been investing heavily in order to grow its oil and gas production and increase its downstream and upstream margins. In addition, after disappointing quarterly results, the company sells at a great discount to its big oil peers. Maybe now its the time to start looking at this great cash flow generator.
