Phillips 66

This extremely diversified energy company has a long and successful operating history, and it is a longtime Goldman Sachs Conviction List member. Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) operates through four segments: Midstream, Chemicals, Refining, and Marketing and Specialties. The company holds many of these assets within its MLP, Phillips 66 Partners.

The company benefits from the tax-advantaged structure while still operating a more diversified operating business that also contains many assets that are not ideal MLP assets, such as its fast-growing chemical manufacturing business and its super-profitable refined products marketing business.

Phillips 66 is the top idea within refining coverage at Goldman Sachs, which continues to see headroom for incremental capital returns this year. The analysts are constructive on a positive rate of change at Refining in 2022. In addition, they continue to see attractive non-refining value in the other segments.

Here, the dividend yield is 5.11%. The Goldman Sachs price target of $109 is less than the $112.99 consensus target. Phillips 66 stock closed almost 3% higher on Tuesday at $76.22.


All these top dividend-paying energy sector giants have backed up nicely, and in a world where interest rates are still historically quite low, they offer dependable streams of passive income. Plus, with three integrated giants, two top energy master limited partnerships, an exploration and production favorite and a top refining leader, investors have plenty to choose from here to add or initiate energy positions.
