Daily Stock Pick: March 23rd, 2023

The price of oil has come down significantly this year and is currently hovering around $70 per barrel. This latest pullback creates an undeniable opportunity for investors looking to boost passive income with a position in one of the best high-yield stocks available. Thanks to accelerating distribution growth, this company is well-positioned to continue delivering market-crushing returns alongside a diminished risk profile. The name might surprise you.  

Enterprise Product Partners (EPD) 

Enterprise Product Partners’ conservatively positioned balance sheet, high yield, and accelerating distribution growth make the stock a compelling opportunity amid plunging oil prices. 

The solid demand for the midstream energy company’s services and geographically diversified assets enable it to consistently grow its EBITDA and cash flows to support its hefty dividend yield. Its adjusted EBITDA has increased at a CAGR of 10.6% since 2017. Meanwhile, its adjusted free cash flow per unit had a CAGR of 32% during the same period. 

While many peers such as Energy Transfer (ET) and Kinder Morgan (KMI) have slashed their payouts in the past during energy market declines, EPD has continued to grow its dividend year after year for a quarter century at a CAGR of 7%. EPD’s dividend yield currently stands at around 8% and is highly likely to continue to climb over the long term.
