The Natural Gas Pullback Continues

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's video, Isaac discusses a move by Chespeake Energy to boost cash by announcing that it would sell key assets in the Permian Basin. Shareholders have voiced concern over Chesapeake's debt level, and this withdrawal just continues a trend that many natural gas companies are following. Still, opportunity can be found in diversified rig operators and companies that will benefit from rock-bottom natural gas prices.
