Finally, the stocks, which we shall cherry-pick, offer current dividend yield of more than 5%.

Most of them are energy infrastructure master limited partnerships (or MLPs). The assets that these partnerships own typically – oil and natural gas pipelines and storage facilities.

MLPs represent an attractive investment option for income-focused investors in the current environment. In addition to high yields, MLPs are structured as pass-through entities.

This means that they typically distribute nearly all of their cash flows back to unitholders. The MLPs are not required to pay a corporate income tax as the tax liability of the entity is passed on to its owners (or unitholders) in the form of a cash dividend (distribution). This allows the MLPs to offer very attractive yields to the investors.
