Oil companies have been valued for the past few years on their dividends, which sometimes exceed 5%—a benefit that has partially made up for the poor stock performances in the industry. Now, some players have found a different way to entice investors without feeling obligated to support a dividend that can seem too expensive when oil prices are low. The companies that are doing this say they will maintain a base dividend that they can fund comfortably, and then pay shareholders an extra dividend when they have enough free cash flow.
