For Investors Only -- Three Dividend Stories, A Couple of Pipeline Stories, and Cramer's Take

First link -- from -- five (5) great oil and gas dividend stocks for 2012 --
Second link -- from SeekingAlpha. com -- four (4) great dividend stocks from the oil patch --
  • CVX
  • XOM
  • COP
  • PBR
Third link -- from -- the battle of two dividend kings -- CVX vs XOM --
Not only has Chevron managed to offer a higher initial yield than Exxon, but its historical track record indicates that it has been able to raise its dividends annually by a greater rate as well.
Fourth link -- from Yahoo!Financial -- among many companies with shares hitting 52-week highs, including ENB --

Fifth link -- from Yahoo!Financial -- Keystone, TransCanada, Enbridge, EEP --
Still, it appears that investors are betting that Keystone will eventually get a green light from the U.S. government. Shares of TransCanada are up nearly 15% this year and are just 4% below their 52-week high. (A Canadian stock doing well? It's the anti-Research in Motion.)

But one of TransCanada's top rivals, Enbridge has actually been a better stock this year. Enbridge's stock has surged more than 30% in 2011.

Part of that may be due to a bet that any further delay with the Keystone project would benefit Enbridge, which already has approval for big pipelines running in Alberta and North Dakota's Bakken Shale.

But Enbridge's earnings and revenues are expected to grow at a faster clip than TransCanada's in 2012. Analysts are forecasting stronger earnings over the next few years for Enbridge as well. In fact, Fortune named Enbridge's U.S. affiliate Enbridge Energy Partners as one of its top 10 stocks for 2012.
Sixth link -- Cramer --
  • SLB, CLR, Sandridge, EOG, just to mention a few Cramer touched on
