2014: The Year of the Offshore Drillers

In this video from Tuesday's special New Year's Eve edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool energy analyst Taylor Muckerman break down the biggest stories in energy from 2013 and look ahead to what energy investors can expect in the coming year ahead.

In this segment, Taylor discusses why he thinks offshore drillers are poised to perform in 2014. He discusses Ensco (NYSE: ESV  ) and why its youngest fleet in the industry could mean utilization levels that drive investor returns. Taylor also discusses Hercules Offshore (NASDAQ: HERO  ) , and highlights why this smaller niche play could make a great bet for the year ahead.

    I absorb more from my reading and I find it more convenient to refer back while reading than watching a video. As a result I also find it inconvenient to listen because it disturbs others near me. Can you please provide a transcript with your videos?
