It can also be found on Twitter, along with our extended coverage of the energy and materials sectors: @TMFEnergy.

In this segment, Tyler and Joel explain why they have a keen eye on Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) right now. Enterprise will to raise its distribution yet again for the 37th straight quarter. With a dominant position in the growing US NGL market, and a plan to expand into gasoline exports, Enterprise seems to be pulling all the right levers right now. In the case of Conoco, expanded offshore drilling and the possibility of revisiting conventional oil wells with new horizontal drilling technology could unlock lots of oil for companies with more conventional assets on their books. This could mean very good things for ConocoPhillips as it continues its massive turnaround into one of the top independent oil and gas drillers out there.
