On CAPS, 98% of the 673 members who have rated ONEOK believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
I'm a big fan of companies with below-average distributions or dividend yields that will likely increase significantly in the near future. That's exactly what we have in [ONEOK].
While its current yield of 4.7% is a little below average compared to its competitors, the company has $7 billion worth of expansion projects scheduled to come online over the next year or two. That's a lot of growth that will likely translate into a significant increase in its distribution and hopefully in turn its share price.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, ONEOK may not be your top choice.
