  • Oil and Gas Still Dominate the Energy Sector

    By Phillip Woolgar - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: MUR, SWN, TSO

    If you think that alternative forms of energy will eat away at oil and gas sector profits in the near future, think again.

Here are three of the companies that I think are poised to profit the most from a continued boom in the oil and gas industry.

Even if the market can blame Tom Ward for the stock weakness over the last few years, losing the founder of the company can’t be a good thing. The interesting part of this news is that the market has another prime example to follow. Not only did more »

  • Energy Companies: Top 3 Volume Gainers

    By Federico Zaldua - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: APC, MRO, SWN

    Compared with the year-ago period, first-quarter operating and financial results for the energy companies I usually follow were mixed, with higher earnings for the refiners but mixed results for integrated and exploration and production (E&P) companies. Despite mixed financial results, almost all E&P companies increased production.

    Within this group, there are three that did this the most: Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) and Southwestern Energy more »

    By Shweta Dubey - May 20, 2013 | Tickers: PXD, SWN, VLO

    By Bill Edson - April 29, 2013 | Tickers: COG, CHK, ECA, SWN

    Our country's policy makers are in a rush to convert the country's energy supply from being coal and oil based to being natural gas based. The idea is that most of the oil we use is imported from less-than-friendly governments, and coal carries with it tremendous external costs of environmental and health damages.

    By Mark Holder - April 29, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, RRC, SWN, WPX

    With natural gas and coal stocks trading at 52-week lows, the market continues to ignore the very bullish natural gas weekly inventory reports. In fact, the reports are now mostly glazed over in the financial media.

    For those that missed the report this week, the weekly inventories rose by 31 Bcf. While less than the 33 Bcf expected gain, the gain is actually significant as the inventory level over the more »
