That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.51% of the current stock value.

Teekay Lng Partners's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
