High-Yield Dividend Stocks with Growth Potential for Retirement Income

MPLX LP, a high-yielding master limited partnership (MLP), has continued its history of delivering strong passive income to investors, with a significant 8.3% distribution yield. In its latest quarterly report, the company showed an 8% increase in distributable cash flow compared to the same period last year, amounting to nearly $1.4 billion. With $951 million returned to investors, the MLP maintains a healthy financial position, with a leverage ratio of 3.2 times, which is considered robust against the backdrop of its stable cash flows.

In the realm of real estate investment trusts (REITs), investors like Chris B. and David Gergen see long-term value potential, especially in companies like Vici Properties and EPR Properties, which focus on gaming and experiential real estate. Despite the general perception of REITs as dull but reliable income generators, these investors highlight their market-beating total returns and growth potential. Vici Properties has been diversifying its portfolio into leisure and entertainment properties, while EPR Properties has a track record of increasing dividends over time.

The dividend landscape has shown resilience and opportunity in various sectors. For example, CVS Health experienced a share price drop after revising its guidance downward, but still offers a 4.7% dividend yield. Ares Capital, with a 9.2% yield, attracts income-seeking investors due to its status as a business development company that distributes most of its profits as dividends. Meanwhile, Pfizer provides a 6.2% yield and stands as a major pharmaceutical company by sales.

Lastly, the energy sector, represented by Enterprise Products Partners, an MLP with a 7.3% yield, continues to demonstrate steady growth in distributions, boasting a 25-year streak of increases. The company benefits from a vast pipeline network and is less affected by commodity price swings, trading at an attractive valuation below the S&P 500's price-to-earnings multiple. Enterprise has promising growth prospects with the planned launch of new natural gas liquids plants in the coming years.
