Top Commodity Stocks For 2011 - It is a great year for energy stocks in 2011 and is a well served top commodity. For starters, Duke Energy Corporation, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners and Southern Copper Corporation are good companies to watch. Energy is highly advisable when investing, but watch out for uncertainty in the middle east.
Duke Energy Corporation is an energy company that provides services through a number of business segments. It offers investors exposure to a very safe and steady industry with a strong pay to kick. With a dividend yield of 5.38%, the stock is available at a reasonable earnings multiple and represents a business that is essentially a legalized monopoly.
Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP is a pipeline transportation and energy storage company. It pays healthy and is well-positioned to benefit from higher energy prices. With its big 6.2% dividend yield, the company also builds relatively new machines that remove natural gas liquids from the streams of natural gas flowing through pipelines - a business with little competition.
Southern Copper Corporation is an integrated copper, molybdenum, zinc and silver producer. It is a rare paying stock in the basic materials sector. With a 4.56% dividend yield, the stock offers investors exposure to commodity prices and a healthy dividend yield to kick, which is something many investors may want to consider given the potential for inflation.
