Investors Should Pay Attention When $641 Billion is Going to be Spent

$30 billion each year to 2035 will be spent to increase the level of our energy infrastructure. Will you be on the right side?

The natural gas and oil boom we have been experiencing for the past few years is prepared to drive $641 billion in spending over the next 30 years. And that's not even geared towards drilling. Companies providing midstream and downstream infrastructure like Chart Industries (NASDAQ:GTLS) and Dresser-Rand Group (NYSE:DRLC) are likely the ones that will be putting this money to use. 

As LNG exportation and its use as a fuel grows in importance, these companies liquefaction businesses should be in high demand. Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT:LNG) will kick things off in 2015, but there are many more facilities already approved and multiples of that waiting for approval. In addition, Chart and Dresser-Rand get involved directly at the field level during the gather process. For more on why this spending binge will mean so much, check out the short clip below.

Is one of these companies going to benefit from this spending binge as well?

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
