    By Chris Johnson - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, KWK, WPX

    Only a decade ago, there was a widespread belief that oil and natural-gas resources were in permanent decline.

  • Insider Trading could make you a Fortune

    By Marie Palumbo - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: APA, CHK, JPM, TSLA

    “Wake up pal- if you are not inside, you are outside.”

    The words of Gordon Gekko brought Charlie Sheen to a shocking revelation in the 1987 film Wall Street. As Sheen and some of Wall Street’s headline names have found out, insider trading is still very illegal.

    By Marie Palumbo - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, CHK, S

    “Lose your focus, lose your shirt,” is what my marketing professor used to say. When a company focuses on what it does best, it stays lean and beats all competitors. Yet all too often, a successful company begins to grow fat.

  • Natural Gas Is Overrated

    By Joshua Bondy - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, GE, SI

    In 2012, the United States added 13.1 gigawatts of new wind capacity, beating natural gas. These new additions were partially driven by uncertainty over government tax credits, but nevertheless, 13.1 gigawatts of new capacity is significant.

  • 3 Stocks Ready to Take Off

    By Marie Palumbo - August 8, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, F, GE, HMC

    No question, filling up the tank hurts these days. Gas hit $4.14 per gallon in my area last month and it hasn't gone down much since. But we do what we’ve done since the first Model-T rolled off Mr. Ford’s assembly line: fill up it up with regular.

  • Why Everyone Needs to Relax About Coal

    By Will Chavey - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, CNX, CSX, BTU

Of course, that recommendation hinges in large part on the continued success of coal, which currently accounts for approximately 40% of U.S. energy. Despite a near-consensus bear attitude toward coal, reasons for optimism remains.
