An Investor's Look at Obama's Pick for Energy Secretary

On Tuesday, Ernest Moniz testified in front of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in hopes of being confirmed as the next U.S. Energy Secretary. Given that there seems to be bipartisan support for him taking up the position, investors should know where he stands on key issues. In this video, contributor Aimee Duffy talks to fellow contributor Tyler Crowe about the decisions Moniz will face when he takes up the post, like whether or not the U.S. should export natural gas, and whether alternative energy companies should be allowed to utilize the master limited partnership business structure.

Master limited partnerships like Energy Transfer Partners dominate the midstream industry and delight investors with their high yields. To see if ETP and its sizable dividend payment could be a good fit for your portfolio, you're invited to check out The Motley Fool's premium research report on the company.
