There is a reason that Emerge Energy Services (NYSE:EMES) is one of the top performing energy stocks so far this year. Not only does it serve one of the highest demand parts of the oil & gas industry today, but it's looking to be an even larger player in the hydraulic fracturing sand market through a very ambitious growth plan. Still, with shares up over 150% this year, investors may start to think it's too expensive to buy shares today. That may sound like a very logical argument, but there is one small thing missing from it, the growth of the company.

Find out how Emerge stacks up against top-flight Master Limited Partnerships such as Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) today, and why buying shares today may still be cheap when you consider its growth plans by tuning into the video below.
