The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Andrew analyze the safest and riskiest bets in the energy market. In Isaac's opinion, one of the safer bets with exposure to oil and gas is rig equipment supplier Helmerich & Payne. The company tripled its market share in the past decade, and its shares trade a relatively low forward price-to-earnings ratio. On the other hand, Cheniere Energy presents a direct bet on liquefied natural gas exports. Cheniere is making an upfront investment that will take years to pay off, so investors should proceed with caution.
