ONEOK: A Solid 6%-Yielder With Natural Gas Strength

ONEOK is one of the largest natural gas-focused midstream companies in the United States. The company has a history of delivering growth and even managed to deliver some in 2020, albeit barely. The future of natural gas and NGLs is incredibly strong, which could give the company some potential growth as this story plays out. The leverage is very high compared to its peers but it does appear able to support its leverage. The dividend yield is 6.07% at the current price and the company can easily support it at the present level.

ONEOK Will Benefit From Continued Strength In Natural Gas Demand

ONEOK operates in the natural gas business, one with a much longer growth and demand pipeline than crude oil. The company has a strong dividend yield of 6% that it's been able to maintain for 25 years., and we expect it'll be able to continue. The company has been capturing efficiency across its system leading to higher volumes and income. We expect the income to provide reliable long-term cash flow and modest growth, making it a reliable investment in an expensive market.
