  • These Stocks Are Toxic for Your Portfolio

    By Rupert Hargreaves - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: CQP, TXI, WWWW

    One of the first things that investors look at when studying a company is the balance sheet. In particular, debt; companies that have high levels of debt relative to equity or EBITDA usually have high interest costs, which can constrict growth, income and shareholder returns.

    In addition, high levels of debt can indicate that the company is on its last legs as a sudden cash call could be looming, resulting more »

  • Is it Too Late for US LNG Exports?

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: APC, CQP, LNG, DGRLY, NBL

    This past May, the Department of Energy granted Freeport LNG (a private company) license to export liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to foreign countries--foreign countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the United States that is. Thus, Freeport joins Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT: LNG) as a LNG exporter. This decision presages more export licenses to be issued to US companies. Given the foreign competition already in place, will more »

  • Do You Want These 3 “Superior” MLPs for Your Dividend Portfolio?

    By Karin Hernandez - May 23, 2013 | Tickers: CQP, EPD, PAA

    Today, I’m examining the three MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships) that were listed in a recent article on InvestorPlace.com. The author, Jeff Reeves, likes these three for what he calls their “triple threat” of high yield, good share appreciation, and stability as a company.

    An MLP is great for an income portfolio because it pays out a large part of its income as distributions to its partners, i.e more »

  • US Natural Gas Exports Won't Save Europe

    By Robert Zimmerman - May 12, 2013 | Tickers: APC, CQP, LNG, HAL, WGP, WES

    Kirk Spano, columnist and founder of Bluemound Asset Management, LLC, recently opined that US natural gas exports were critical for the long-term stability of Europe. Specifically, he declared, “Without more self sufficiency long term and stable energy supplies intermediate term, Europe could be doomed to decades of instability. Which is where the U.S. comes in.“

    “Doomed to decades of instability?” Oh please. As Michael Greenstone, professor of environmental economics more »

  • Natural Gas Exports: Who Might Win?

    By Robert Zimmerman - April 28, 2013 | Tickers: CQP, LNG, GLOG, LNCO, LINE

    The Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions analyzed the impact of American natural gas exports. According to its report, Deloitte believes exporting 6 billion cubic feet a day will cause natural gas prices to increase 15 cents per million BTUs, or 3.75%. For exporters, this spells opportunity. By the time gas is liquefied, exported, and then regassified, it costs about $9/mmBTU. Despite these costs, exporting gas could produce more »

  • Will LNG Exports Rescue the Natural Gas Market

    By Eric Fox - September 14, 2012 | Tickers: CQP, LNG, COP, D, XOM, SRE

    The long term solution to the oversupply of natural gas in the United States might be through exporting natural gas via the construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plants in the Gulf Coast and other areas. The industry has several of these LNG export facilities either under construction or in the planning phase across the United States.

  • Who Will Win in the Race to Export Natural Gas?

    By Matthew DiLallo - August 22, 2012 | Tickers: CQP, D, XOM, SRE, BX

    As if hydraulic fracking weren’t controversial enough, the next big push in the domestic energy industry is to take some of that fracked gas and send it elsewhere.  While this could be a boon for the industry’s producers and investors, the potential rise in natural gas prices from increased demand won’t sit well with consumers.  Neither will these export projects sit too well with those protectionists or more »

  • Can This Stock Power Your Portfolio?

    By Matthew DiLallo - August 15, 2012 | Tickers: CQP, LNG, CNX, D, LINE

    A longtime favorite sector of income seeking investors has always been utilities.  Steady demand for power has churned out steady earnings for decades.  These steady earnings have given utilities the power to pay nearly as steady dividends to their income seeking shareholders.  Who wouldn’t want a steady paycheck these days?

    With all the volatility in the market the past few years, those steady dividend checks should help to smooth more »

  • These Emerging Energy Plays are Worth Watching

    By Matthew DiLallo - July 25, 2012 | Tickers: CQP, LNG, CHK, CLNE, WPRT

    The domestic natural gas industry has a big problem in the form of simple economics.  When supply is higher than demand, prices fall and when prices fall producer profits suffer.  To combat this problem there are several companies working on the demand side of the equation that I think are worth keeping an eye on.  I’ll be adding these high risk, high reward companies to the watch list of more »
