TMFUltralong sayaAlliance Resource provides coal to electric utilities for energy generation. It's arguably one of the premier dividend stocks, having raised its dividend in 25 of the past 40 quarters; it currently yields a handsome 4.5%. Alliance Resource's operating margins also handily outpace many of its rivals, including the much larger CONSOL Energy. With nuclear energy's safety coming into question, and Germany taking the lead in moving away from nuclear, coal seems like a clear-cut winner in the intermediate future. As long as Alliance Resources can keep up its torrid pace of dividend growth, shareholders could do a lot worse than this company.
