Cramer has mentioned many excellent high dividend type stocks on his Mad Money program as well as in his various books. A few that I've picked up from him are ETE, EPD, ETP, KMP (or KMR in an IRA,)LINE, EVEP, HGT, BPT, PBT, PWE--and outside energy, NLY, PGF, MPW, CPL, FTE, MO. One thing I've noticed is that intelligent investors own (and some trade)these stocks. Many generously share their holdings and analysis (I always do my own homework and only buy on dips.)
I have not been watching APU. I watch about 100 stocks and own about 15. That is about my limit. Seems like something goes wrong for several stocsk each month which is when I buy. I don't actually see a lot of downside risk to the market 1-month out which helps strengthen my buying conviction.
