In this article, we will be taking a look at 10 energy monthly dividend stocks. To skip our detailed analysis of these stocks and the energy sector, you can go directly to see the 5 Energy Stocks that Pay Monthly Dividends.

The years 2020 and 2021 have been extremely challenging and transformational for the global community. As far as the economy is concerned, it would be an understatement to comment that it was negatively impacted by the rise of the pandemic. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), for instance, the global economy stands to lose more than $4 trillion because of the impact of the pandemic on the tourism industry alone. If that is what we stand to lose because of hard hits on one portion of the economy, suffice it to say that the overall economic impact of the pandemic is not something one can take lightly.

While the economy has been negatively impacted thus by the pandemic, and no industry has been spared in its wake, it is still true that some industries are managing to get back on their feet faster than others. At the same time, these industries are going through transformations the likes of which we had not seen before. One such example is the global energy industry, which has not only managed to cling on to relevancy in investor circles but has also undergone massive shifts and changes as more people begin to gravitate towards renewable energy.

For instance, Bloomberg has reported that as of August 2021, about $174 billion has been poured into renewable energy alone, signifying an increase in investments in the sector of about 1.8% year over year. As more people begin to commit to the fight against climate change, investments in the energy sector also began racking up with money raised on public markets in the first half of 2021 alone reaching about $28.2 billion. Additionally, as far as investment in individual sectors goes, investments in solar have been up 9% in the first half of this year, reaching a record value of $78.9 billion. As such, with the progression of 2021, we have seen the rising popularity of non-conventional, renewable energy stocks like First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR), alongside other energy stocks in general, such as NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE), Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP).

While the energy industry is continuing to undergo these shifts and changes, investors are also beginning to return to dividend investing as a viable strategy. Given the fact that dividend stocks have been prone to greatly influence the total return of the S&P 500 especially during bearish markets, these stocks have managed to crawl back into investor portfolios as long-term favorites. According to Post Oak Private Wealth Advisors, the above is proven by the fact that during bear markets, dividends have contributed about 90% to the S&P 500's total return between 1900 and 2000. Just in general as well, during this same time period dividends contributed to 5.5% of the average annual total return for the S&P 500 while price appreciation contributed about 4.9% of the same. Resultantly, dividend stocks have managed to stick around and become investor favorites even, or perhaps especially, during the pandemic. Hence, we have compiled a list of energy monthly dividend stocks to be found below.

Investing is becoming difficult by the day, even for the smart money. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and July 2021, our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 186.1%, vs. 100.1% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
