by: Dividendinvestr

Below we compiled a list of high dividend energy stocks with large market caps. All companies have at least a $15 billion market cap, dividend yields of at least 4%, and a P/E ratio of lower than 20. We obtained market data from Finviz and MSN Money. We are long-tem bullish about energy prices and we believe the U.S. dollar will lose value in real terms. We also agree with Warren Buffett that Treasury bonds aren't good investments at the moment.

We believe one of the best alternatives for conservative income investors is energy storage and transportation stocks. Most of these stocks have beta of lower than 0.5.
