Best dividend paying stocks to buy at this time? A couple of the big oil companies like Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A-N) and Total (TOT-N) pay solid dividends and have very, very strong balance sheets and are in much better shape than most of the Canadian oil/gas sector. They have the opportunity for decent dividend growth. Trading at relatively cheaper valuations. 5.56% dividend. (See Past Picks.)

Incredibly well run company. These large oil companies are not expensive and they do pay great dividends. But it is hard to move the needle on production growth. This is what has hurt these companies a great deal. Have brought down their risk profile in many ways by getting out of non-core assets. If you want international exposure, you can put your money into other areas and do better.

Major league integrated oil company. Had a weak quarter and have been having a weak year. Stock has not performed well over the last couple of years. The big reason to own this would be for the dividend. They will continue to benefit from higher oil prices, but have a lot of natural gas exposure.

(Market call minute.) Great dividend. Oil is not going to go up very much but these are cheap stocks these days.

All of these companies are having trouble growing production but this one has a phenomenal track record in terms of generating free cash flow, paying out good dividends and being able to reinvest enough in their business to continue to replace production and growing slowly over time. This is one of the best in class. Powerfully strong balance sheet.

He wonders why they have not raised the dividend. Has a very, very strong balance sheet. Have a number of projects coming on line. A very cautious company. Moving forward you will see the dividends increase. Quite cheap, so this is one that you just buy and put it away. Treat it like a bond with some upside.

Doesn’t see any real value in the mega-cap energy space right now. Defensive in that they are integrated. Refiners have held up really well.

This might be a better way to take on the energy sector. There may be a tax difference between .A and .B shares. 5% dividend.

Dividend in the 4% range but easily covered by earnings with still lots of room for growth. Earning well in excess of their dividend. No debt issue and they still have room for growth.

Very, Very strong balance sheet. Wonders why dividend hasn’t increased. Stock has done very little since recovery in ’07. Thinks you might see a dividend raise here. You will see very slow but steady growth here. 5% is rich for a stock here. He feels it is moving up longer term.

(A Top Pick Nov 22/11. Up 3.61%.) Dividend is solid, very sustainable and will likely grow. A little disappointed that company management hasn’t grown at a more active pace. A little conservative. If the price of oil stays reasonably consistent, he expects they could get spectacular dividend growth over the next little while.

Company has had a pretty phenomenal performance. Has invested very heavily in front of the 07 jet (?) which has led to some very good growth projects coming on stream in the next couple of years. This is one of the few major oil companies that could increase their dividend. Good balance sheet. This is more of a long-term buy and hold company.

Blue chip global multinational. More professionally managed than one or two of it's major rivals. More liquid than others. 4.9% yield.

Bahrain recently announced they are going to increase their holdings from 3% to 7%. They are leading the way for natural gas exploration and production. Dividend of around 5%. You won’t go too far wrong by owning this because you are going to get dividend growth over time.
