You Won’t Need to Worry About Social Security if You Do This

Photo credit: ConocoPhillips 

A recent poll discovered that 81% of Americans are worried about Social Security. That suggests that just 19% of Americans have a plan in place that completely offsets their worry about needing Social Security. You could be part of that 19% if you do one simple thing: Invest in America's energy boom.

Companies like ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP  ) , Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN  ) , and EOG Resources (NYSE: EOG  ) are making their investors a lot of money by discovering new sources of oil and gas in the U.S. It's enabling these investors to forget about Social Security as they are collecting big dividend checks today, which are likely to grow larger over time. Meanwhile, these three stocks are compounding capital gains that are building really nice nest eggs for their investors.

You can join them by checking out the slideshow I created on these top oil stocks. In it you'll see why ConocoPhillips is poised to deliver annual returns topping 10% for the foreseeable future. You'll also discover how Devon Energy is growing its oil production by 20% annually, with no slowdown in sight. Finally, you'll see just how EOG Resources has emerged from the ashes of Enron to become one of America's top oil companies.

    Please help me understand why the refiners aren't surging ahead as a result of the oil boom. I understand that we're using less oil per person, but with a limited number of refineries and a glut of oil to refine, you'd think they'd be able to charge more or make up in volume what they can't in price.increases. If they're able to export some of their products, it should be an additional catalyst for the bottom line. .

    -HarryPiels - Well, I think some of that has to do with perspective. PSX, VLO and TSO are all up more than 100% in the past two years while the market is up 30%. So, if you are looking shorter duration you might have missed that surge. The other issue is added environmental costs which eat into profits at refiners as well as things like ethanol and other additives. Overall, refiners are doing very well thanks to the energy boom.
