Juicy Dividend Play
"Don't let today's rally lure you into being too aggressive," Cramer cautioned viewers, as he once again made the case for high-yielding dividend stocks as part of every investors' portfolio. He featured MarkWest Energy (MWE - Get Report), a master limited partnership with a juicy 6.2% dividend yield, as one such great investment.
WarkWest is our country's top provider of natural gas gathering, transporting, processing and storage. Unlike many exploration and production companies, MarkWest is also has less exposure to the price of the commodity it processes. The company is the top player in the Marcellus shale region of Pennsylvania, but also has its hands in shale plays all across our country.
Cramer said that MarkWest's recent secondary offering of stock makes a perfect entry point, as shares are currently trading below that price price. He said the company now has all of the capital it needs for growth, and thus boosting its distribution to shareholders.MarkWest has a generous history of rewarding shareholders, said Cramer, with distributions increasing by 190% since the company's IPO. All told, MarkWest has returned 912%, including reinvested distributions, since it's IPO.
