Given the historic cold in North America and the above-average snowfall dumped on the United States this year, Atlantic Power (AT) seems likely to achieve capital appreciation and a dividend pop, as well. Currently yielding 15.6 percent, AT owns and operates a fleet of power generation and infrastructure assets in the U.S. and Canada. The company sells electricity to utilities and other commercial customers under long-term agreements. And with the winter we’ve had so far, you can bet demand will continue to rise. Warm your portfolio with this 15.6 percent dividend and take a break from the winter.
