5 More Promising High-Yield Dividends for 2013: Linn Energy LLC (LINE), Triangle Capital Corporation (TCAP) and More

Page 1 of 2

Dividends from healthy, growing companies deliver to us, like mail carriers, in any kind of weather – boom, bust, or stalled economy. As 2012 drew to a close, I offered some high-yield dividend payers for you to consider. There are a lot of other promising income-generating stocks out there, though, and the year is still young, so if you’ve been meaning to add some dividends to your portfolio, read on for additional ideas.

Below are a few companies about which you might want to learn more. Note that several are limited partnerships (MLPs), which offer some tax advantages as well as some complications. Note, too, that very high yields are sometimes tied to riskier stocks that have fallen in value. Be sure to research such companies carefully before jumping in.

The Best Stock to Profit from Cheap Natural GasLinn Energy LLC (NASDAQ:LINE): Based in Houston, this oil and natural gas company sports a dividend yield of about 7.5%, with some expecting increases, due to recent income-generating acquisitions. The company specializes in buying mature , productive energy assets. Linn Energy is also admired for its successful long-term hedging, and seen by some as a very promising investment.

BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT) is yielding nearly 12%, and is down about 26% over the past year, leaving some wondering whether it’s a bargain now. Over the past 20 years, it averaged annual gains of 23%,  though recent years have been less generous. Like other Royalty Trusts, BP Prudhoe is tied to the fortunes of a particular oil field asset, in Alaska’s North Slope. (Royalty trusts also generally expire after a set period, so don’t expect dividends to continue for many decades here, as they might with many blue-chip stocks. Its reserves are currently expected to last some 12 years, and the dividends are expected to peter out around 2027. The company will benefit from increases in the price of oil and boosted production levels.

Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) , recently yielding 5.6%, is a business development company (BDC) — essentially a publicly traded private equity company. Like real estate investment trusts (REITs), BDCs are required to pay out at least 90% of their earnings as dividends. That can be great, offering shareholders significant income, but as dividends are so strongly tied to earnings, payouts may be rather volatile. This BDC favors  investing in “traditional or basic businesses,” and late-stages ones, at that, preferring to avoid start-ups, which can be riskier. In 2012, the company issued new shares to retire some debt and generate capital for further investments. Some think it’s not the best at what it does, but others are impressed with its performance lately.
