The 6 Best Dividend Paying Oil Stocks

If you're an income investor, you most likely will be looking for high-dividend stocks. Those high yields can be found within the energy sector, especially in the oil rector. Some Telecom, REITs and MLPs also pay good dividends.

Dividend investing also requires patience. And the reason for that is fairly simple: Most high-quality dividend payers are very stable and mature companies whose stocks are almost always trading at fair valuations with little-to-no prospect of becoming undervalued. In other words, these are generally boring stocks to own. 

When it comes to investing in dividend-paying oil stocks, here's what I'd be looking for:

- Acceptable Debt-To-Equity Ratios
- Strong Fundamentals
- High Dividends
- Low Payouts
- Cheap Valuation
- Competitive Advantage

Attached is a list of the best dividend paying oil stocks that might fulfill the most of the above mentioned criteria. Which do you like or do you know some oil stocks that might be better? Please let me know.
