Dynagas LNG Partners LP (NYSE: DLNG) is a liquefied natural gas transportation firm. It offers shipping services for natural gas suppliers and buyers primarily in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
Dynagas is compelling today for several reasons. The first is the expected upside. Full-year earnings for 2020 is expected to be close to $0.57 per share. The company is on track to achieve this, and it would be an increase of more than 2000% year over year.
The company slashed its dividend recently, disappointing many investors. However, for new investors coming on board, this is actually important. By cutting its dividend, the company will protect itself during this period of global economic uncertainty. It will create more operational flexibility, allowing for growth and resilience.
There’s also the fact that this stock is extremely affordable. For alternative investors, natural gas is the most appealing fossil fuel to invest in. This gas has a low environmental impact during combustion, and its extraction is less destructive than oil and coal. By 2035, natural gas is expected to be responsible for 25% of the world’s energy production. It’s an important transitionary energy source that can fill gaps that are still left by renewables. This stock could help to add predictability to a speculative portfolio.
