3 Ways to Bet on Natural Gas in the Dow

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discusses topics around the investing world.

Natural gas is a hot commodity these days. Investors want to better understand the companies with exposure to a resource that could be bolstered by export plans, surging electricity demand, and transportation alternatives. Isaac delivers the goods with an overview of three Dow Jones components that are investing in the future of this abundant American resource. The two Dow energy stocks that come to mind are ExxonMobil and Chevron, which make up more than 11% of the index combined. However, are there other innovative companies that could dive into the natural gas revolution? Watch the video to find out.
