Energy Investors Would be Wise to Avoid These 2 Stocks

Not every investment in the energy space is a slam dunk investment. Sure, oil and gas production across the US is resulting in skyrocketing revenue and share prices, but some companies are simply not worth the investment today. Two companies in particular are Quicksilver Resources (NASDAQOTH: KWKAQ  ) and Range Resources (NYSE: RRC  ) , but for completely different reasons. 

In the case of Quicksilver, there are several aspects of their business that are holding them back. Be it the large debt burden or the inability to monetize many of its natural gas assets, the cards seemed to be stacked against this company unless there are some major changes made through either asset sales or partnerships with a more well financed partner. Find out the details of Quicksilver's position and why Range Resources is on this list despite it being one of the better natural gas producers in the US today by tuning into the video below.

    KWK's problem is the family ownership/mgmt. the board should fire the pres/founder then resign in disgrace itself for allowing this to happen. the stk was flying high at about $33 after 2-3 diff splits before; now it's at $2.xx. Carrizo (crzo) made the change to oil 3 yrs back when the signals in the mrkt pointed that way. that former gas stk went from mid $30's (languished there since '08) to $67. Sandridge (sd) only fired the pres/founder, stayed mostly in gas, and stk rose from the ashes to $7 finally. the snake carcass rots from the head down (?), just like with 'bama and all the u.s. troubles.
