The United States has undergone a stunning reversal of fortune thanks to fracking. A nation that once worried that it would run out of energy sources is now on the verge of becoming an energy export powerhouse. This transition should yield incredible profits for investors in companies such as Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX), and Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT:LNG).

Among the early leaders is Enterprise Products Partners, which has almost singlehandedly made the U.S. the world's top propane exporter. It's looking to do the same for exports of ethane and refined petroleum products. And if crude oil could be exported, Enterprise Products Partners has the access to water to make that happen rather quickly. It recently took the first steps in that direction by receiving government approval to export condensate

Enterprise, however, isn't alone in positioning to profit from exporting American energy. Phillips 66 is building its own propane export facility and recently acquired a refined petroleum products facility in the Gulf Coast that is strategically positioned for exports.

Meanwhile, Cheniere Energy is probably the best pure-play opportunity on natural-gas exports. Cheniere Energy's Sabine Pass LNG facility in Louisiana should be operational by the end of next year, and the company is already working on a second facility in Corpus Christi.

There's a lot of profit to be made from energy exports. I created the following slideshow to help investors see the full range of opportunities as energy exports rise in America. It takes a closer look at the positions of Enterprise Products Partners, Phillips 66, and Cheniere Energy, and also points to others that are positioned to profit from energy exports.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

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.
