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.


One for Growth, One for Income

By Roger S. Conrad on Sep. 23, 2013

The past five years have been a golden age for energy-focused master limited partnerships (MLP). Fueled by access to inexpensive capital, elevated oil prices and rising demand for infrastructure to support the US energy renaissance, MLPs have posted impressive distribution growth and delivered huge returns since the bull-market rally began in spring 2009. However, past performance isn't predictive of future results. And with many MLPs trading at sky-high valuations, investors will need to be selective and avoid value traps.

In the prevailing low-yield environment, income-starved investors have piled into dividend-paying US equities for their superior current returns relative to bonds, pushing valuations on many of these stocks to frothy levels. Last issue, we highlighted opportunities for investors to scoop up high-quality Canadian dividend payers at bargain prices. This time, we shift our focus even further afield, to some of our favorite income-generating names that trade on the Australian Stock Exchange.
