For commodity investors, the energy sector has certainly been a thrilling ride over the last five years or so.
It’s a tale of boom and bust set on repeat. But lately, the sector seems to have gotten its mojo back in a big way. As the economy has expanded across the globe and production has remained muted, the sector has received a major shot in the arm courtesy of rising crude oil prices.
To that end, profits are back in a big way. And so are dividends.
Perhaps the best thing is that the good times don’t look like they’ll end anytime soon. For investors – especially dividend investors – the time to pounce on the sector could be now. There’s a lot to like about energy stocks these days.
