ConocoPhillips Rewards Shareholders Again!

In the following video, Motley Fool energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman take a look at ConocoPhillips' (NYSE: COP  ) dividend. The company just recently raised its dividend by 4.5% to $0.69 per quarter, or an annualized 4.2% yield. Joel tells investors why this independent exploration and production company is able to maintain such a high yield when others can't, why the company’s focus on production and away from exploration keeps the dividend safe, and what he likes about this company today.

Record oil and natural gas production is revolutionizing the United States' energy position.
