As the market might slow, an energy company is poised to stay strong. Consistent earnings with a nice dividend yield, albeit a high payout ratio. That can be expected from this industry though. Balance sheet leans toward a low current ratio, but a high ratio of long-term assets-to-liabilities is comforting. We'll see how the market fares in the next year and keep holding on or let go at that time.
