1 High-Yield Dividend for Your Watchlist

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Paul Chi and senior analyst Matt Argersinger discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Paul and Matt discuss ConocoPhillips, an independent explorer and producer of oil and gas that recently spun off its downstream unit. The company is a very interesting candidate for investors looking for dividend-paying stocks in the energy sector. ConocoPhillips yields 5% while only paying out 20% to 25% of cash from operations, which allows the company to continue growing production -- and dividend payments -- in the future.

Energy stocks offer something for all types of investors. Some companies rise and fall with oil prices, while others provide more steady returns over the long haul. The Motley Fool has identified a company that will prosper for years to come. Read more about an energy stock set to soar in our special free report: "The Only Energy Stock You'll Ever Need."
