The New Year promises to be a great one for dividend stocks. After underperforming the market in 2020, the stars are aligning to make 2021 the year of the dividend.

The distribution of the coronavirus vaccine promises to bring this pandemic to an end and unleash a full and robust recovery in 2021. Energy stocks that had been neglected in the market recovery have caught fire in anticipation of a full recovery in 2021.

A huge and overdue rally in the sector has paused temporarily ahead of a very promising year, giving us an opportunity to get into one of the very best stocks in the sector at a still cheap price.

Global energy giant Chevron (CVX) currently offers the rare combination of great value and momentum, as well as a fat yield. The stock has already moved higher, the rally has a long way to go.

The euphoric vaccine rally has driven the market indexes to all time highs. A vaccine likely means the end of the pandemic, sooner rather than later. The removal of the remaining lockdown restrictions should unshackle the economy and bring on a full and robust recovery.

A full recovery will lift those stocks and sectors that depend on the Main Street economy. It will lift cyclical sectors like energy, finance and hospitality that had not participated in the partial recovery. It’s already happening. The losers of the earlier stock market recovery are on fire.

In this issue I highlight one of the best banks in the country. It is a highly desired stock that should be very quick to recover. The stock has strong momentum and is still priced well below the 52-week high. This issue also highlights two covered call opportunities to cash in on the market rally.

These are crazy times. This pandemic-riddled year isn’t done with us yet. In fact, Covid cases are rising and many states are reinstating new batches of lockdown restrictions. At the same time, we’re less than a week away from an election with a high risk of a contested result and the ensuing uncertainty.

At some point, we will get past the election and the pandemic. The economy should boom and the market will be free to rise. But things could still get awfully dicey in the weeks and months before we get to the Promised Land.

In this issue, I highlight a high-income stock that is ideal for the current situation. The business is benefitting mightily from the pandemic. It’s a defensive stock that should continue to perform well amidst the volatility. Yet, it should also be a star in the post-pandemic market.

Not only does this stock pay a high dividend, but it attracts high call premiums as well. It is one of the very few stocks that is well worth buying in the current situation.

The incredible rally from the March lows has been disrupted. After soaring a remarkable 60% from the March lows, the S&P has pulled back more than 8% from the high. The selloff was long overdue and frankly healthy. It couldn’t continue the torrid pace higher forever.

The recent pullback has put several high quality stocks back in the buy range. In this issue, I highlight one of the very best large companies on the market. The recent turbulence has caused a rare pullback in the price that presents a buying opportunity in a stock that is rarely ever cheap. It also generates substantial call premiums and fantastic income potential.

It’s time to look beyond the pandemic. It may seem like it will drag on forever. And it may still be a while yet before it’s behind us. But it will pass. In the grand scheme of things, it is a very temporary situation.

The overwhelming majority of your investing career from here will be in the post pandemic environment. And the virus has created opportunities. While the market indexes are at all time highs, many of the more cyclical and real economy stocks are still historically very cheap. But these stocks will be lifted by the inevitable recovery ahead.

In this issue, I identify two industry leaders with stock prices that are temporarily depressed in the current environment. Yet, they present fantastic opportunities if we look beyond the haze.

In anticipation of a booming economy in the months and quarters ahead, the stock market has rallied within a whisker of all time highs. But certain individual stocks and sectors are still languishing despite the index performance. It is among these stocks where great value and high yield can still be found.

In this issue I highlight one of the best banks in the country at a historically low price as the sector struggles. But the bank has remained solidly profitable through the horrible economy in the second quarter, and the stock will benefit as the recovery gains traction. It currently offers a great income opportunity with a high yield and getting high call premiums as the market anticipates better days ahead.

This is a fantastic environment for income. The upward bias of the market is creating high call premiums. And certain pockets of the market still offer deep value and higher dividend yields than have existed in many years.

In this issue I identify three excellent dividend stocks to buy now.

One is a high yielding energy play with a stratospheric, but safe, yield. Another is one of the most defensive and reliable income generating stocks in the market that still offers good value and a strong yield. And the third is a technology stock that sells at a reasonable price with an incredibly strong catalyst for the stock price to shoot up in the future.

The issue also includes covered calls on these same stocks that will provide a double digit income in a short time if the stocks move higher, and a great income return if they don’t.

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Cabot Income Advisor. It is my pleasure to share investment ideas that can provide you with a high income in today’s low interest rate world.

In this issue I highlight three stocks that are great buying opportunities right now for income investors. The stocks are chosen for their high yields, ability to generate attractive call premiums and the likelihood of capital appreciation over time.

While the market indexes have rebounded strongly from the March lows, many individual industries and stocks are still dirt cheap and high yielding, In fact, this is the best market in over a decade in which to find high yields in quality stocks.

Of course, the market is still dangerous and many high yielding stocks are in a precarious financial condition. Many will have to cut the dividend and the price will likely fall. While quality high yields are out there, stocks must be chosen wisely.

These three stocks are a great way to lock in high income and start to build your high income portfolio. Now is the time to embark on your journey to higher income and a more rewarding financial future. I look forward to being your trusted partner.
