1 Natural Gas Stock I'm Avoiding

While the natural gas sector has received plenty of hype, research analyst Austin Smith cautions investors away from Cheniere Energy. Natural gas is far more expensive in Asia than the United States, a gradient Cheniere hopes to take advantage of by exporting natural gas out of the U.S. The problem is that many Asian nations, including China, have plenty of untapped natural gas stores that will erode Cheniere's advantage once companies like Halliburton or Schlumberger exploit these reserves. 

There are many different ways to play the energy sector, and our analysts have uncovered an under-the-radar company that's dominating its industry. This company is a leading provider of equipment and components used in  drilling and production operations, and poised to profit in a big way from it.

    2 billion from Blackstone committed and other 3 billion committed in financing secured. Long term contracts based on Henry Hub. Asia just starting to understand fracking with contracts benefiting domestic producers like Devon. No meaningful pipeline infrastructure in Asia. Just how long do you think it will take them to get completely up to speed? Just by having the natural resources available does not mean you can wish them to be productive for you without meaningful development. Oh, and by the way, I wish Cotton was a monkey, as well!

    I am very deep in LNG and expect to sell @ it's peak in 3 years and shift it all to Clean Energy stock, which I am slow crawling in right now. The increase of nat.gas pumps for the public and the big 3 car companies jumping in like Chevy & Honda are currently with the CNG flex cars will be the next boom stock....Currently, Pilot gas stations are leading the push by installing several public nat gas pumps on the major highways...They are doing this through Clean Energy
