Offshore Drilling Platform and SunLast month, in my monthly top dividend update, I looked into TransOcean (RIG) which was at the top of the rankings in terms of top dividend payers in the S&P500. Well guess what, that has not changed. In fact, an increasing number of energy sector names have climbed near the top of these rankings. Like RIG, it is mostly driven by poor fundamentals. Let’s face it, the price of oil has been declining so quickly that many of these companies will face serious challenges. Already, Bonterra Energy (BNE.TO) in Canada just announced it was cutting its dividend by 50%. In much of the analysis of Exxon (XOM), analysts were discussing the possibility of Exxon pausing its dividend increases if the price of oil does not recover in the coming months.

I personally would be careful with having too much exposure to the energy sector in the coming weeks/months even though it will attract a very solid dividend yield. Would you go all in with oil names at this price betting on a rebound?
