Shares of Kinder Morgan Inc. slipped 0.2% in premarket trade Monday, after the oil and gas pipeline operator was downgraded at Stifel Nicolaus, citing concerns over valuation. Analyst Selman Akyol cut his rating to hold, after being at buy for more than three years. He kept his stock price target at $22, which is 7.2% above Friday's closing price; Stifel defines a hold rating as a total return of -5% to +10% over the next 12 months. The stock has soared 33.5% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%. Akyol said he continues to view Kinder Morgan favorably, given its more moderate leverage, high coverage and dividend growth, but he said the valuation already reflects the positive catalysts. Kinder Morgan's dividend yield at Friday's closing price was 4.87%, which was above the SPDR Energy Select Sector's payout of 3.39% and the S&P 500's implied yield of 1.99%, according to FactSet.
OTTAWA/CALGARY, Alberta, June 16 (Reuters) - Canada looks set to approve a hotly-debated plan to expand an oil pipeline this week, people familiar with the process told Reuters, but the move is unlikely to help Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rebuild flagging support ahead of an October election. The Liberal government last year took the unprecedented step of buying the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan Canada for C$4.5 billion ($3.4 billion) to ensure the expansion went ahead to help solve crude transportation bottlenecks. If completed, the expansion would nearly triple capacity on the pipeline that runs from the western crude-rich province of Alberta to British Columbia's Pacific coast.
Energy stocks rallied in unison Thursday to pace the S&P 500's sector gainers, with crude oil futures surging as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iran was to blame for a number of recent incidents, including the attacks Thursday on two oil tankers in the Middle East. The SPDR Energy Select Sector ETF rallied 1.3% in afternoon trade, with all 29 equity components gaining ground. Among the more-active components, shares of Halliburton Co. hiked up 2.8%, Marathon Oil Corp. gained 1.8%, Schlumberger NV rose 3.7%, Exxon Mobil Corp. tacked on 0.8% and Kinder Morgan Inc. advanced 0.8%. Meanwhile, crude oil futures surged 2.8%, after settling Wednesday at a 5-month low. The energy ETF has lost 6.9% year to date, while the S&P 500 tacked on 2.8%.
It is never too early, and no one is too young, to begin investing. I know, since I began to learn as a small child. I started by learning the basics of how companies issue stock and how stocks are bought and sold on the exchanges. And my learning commenced with building a model portfolio that I would paper trade. And each day I would check the stock prices, which way back then were still listed in the daily papers.Source: Shutterstock I would go on to open a small brokerage account and begin to work with my own money -- all supporting my learning experience. And of course, I would gain and lose along the way as my stocks' prices would rise and fall day by day.Back then, commissions were a lot steeper than today, so my choices were more about what to buy and own. That meant that I had to have a high level of confidence to overcome the costs of buying and selling.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Why Dividends Are ImportantI would later come to appreciate the power of dividends, which worked to bolster my portfolio as they were credited to my account. And this continues through to today, as I remain firmly in favor of focusing on stocks that pay you (and pay you well) through good and rising dividend distributions. * 7 High-Quality Cheap Stocks to Buy With $10 This is an important lesson for young and older investors alike. Dividends continue to be one of the biggest sources of overall total return in the stock market. Take, for example, the performance of the S&P 500 Index over the trailing 20 years.The Index gained in price by 122.3%, but with dividends the return swells to 226.3%, which is 85% more than the price movement alone.S&P 500 Index Total Return Source BloombergThat's a big premium over just investing for price growth. And those dividends worked to cushion returns during bear markets over those same 20 years.For younger investors, remember, it's not just about dividends. It's also about learning more about the underlying businesses of the companies behind the stocks. By investing in the right dividend-paying stocks that also are in distinct industries and markets, you will learn more about how business works.I've put together a small collection of five stocks that pay dividends that range from close to the average of the S&P 500 Index to quite a bit more. They are in varied segments ranging from industrial and consumer products, technology, utilities, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and the energy market. Dividend Stocks to OwnCompass Diversified Holdings Total Return Source BloombergI start with Compass Diversified Holdings (NYSE:CODI).

This is a Silicon-Valley-headquartered company which seeks out new and developing technology companies in its neighborhood and beyond. It works to finance their developments and takes equity participation, then provides guidance in their development including eventual exit strategies through company sales and initial public offerings (IPOs). It too pays a bigger dividend, which currently yields 9.9%.Kinder Morgan Total Return Source BloombergLet's move on to the energy market -- in the reliable dividend-paying segment of oil and gas pipelines -- with Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI).
