Roger S. Conrad needs no introduction to individual and professional investors, many of whom have profited from his decades of experience uncovering the best dividend-paying stocks for accumulating sustainable wealth.

Roger Conrad built his reputation with Utility Forecaster, a publication he founded more than 20 years ago that has routinely ranked among the best investment newsletters in the Hulbert Financial Digest. The founder and former editor of MLP Profits and Canadian Edge, he’s also a sought-after expert on master limited partnerships (MLP) and former Canadian royalty trusts.

In April 2013, Roger Conrad reunited with long-time friend and colleague Elliott Gue, becoming co-editor of Energy & Income Advisor, a twice-monthly online newsletter that’s dedicated to uncovering the most profitable opportunities in the energy sector. Soon after, the two founded Capitalist Times, a financial advisory dedicated to helping do-it-yourself individual investors build wealth in both bull and bear markets.

Although the masthead may have changed, readers can count on Roger to deliver the same high-quality research and rational assessment of the best dividend-paying stocks that he has throughout his more than two decades of experience as a financial analyst.

By Roger S. Conrad on Jun. 28, 2013
