5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks: NYCB, VZ, TE, APL, TCP

TC Pipelines

Dividend Yield: 6.10%

TC Pipelines (NYSE: TCP) shares currently have a dividend yield of 6.10%.

TC PipeLines, LP transports natural gas to market hubs and consuming markets primarily in the western and midwestern United States, and central Canada. The company has a P/E ratio of 21.98.

The average volume for TC Pipelines has been 330,100 shares per day over the past 30 days. TC Pipelines has a market cap of $3.2 billion and is part of the energy industry. Shares are up 26.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday.

TheStreet Ratings rates TC Pipelines as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat weak growth in earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 10.7%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 6.3%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • The gross profit margin for TC PIPELINES LP is currently very high, coming in at 76.47%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 170.58% significantly outperformed against the industry average.
  • Compared to where it was 12 months ago, the stock is up, but it has so far lagged the appreciation in the S&P 500. Looking ahead, unless broad bear market conditions prevail, we still see more upside potential for this stock, despite the fact that it has already risen over the past year.
  • Despite currently having a low debt-to-equity ratio of 0.53, it is higher than that of the industry average, inferring that management of debt levels may need to be evaluated further. Despite the fact that TCP's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 0.69 is low and demonstrates weak liquidity.
  • The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. In comparison to the other companies in the Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels industry and the overall market, TC PIPELINES LP's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
