The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Paul Chi and senior analyst Matt Argersinger discuss topics around the investing world.
In today's edition, Paul and Matt discuss Southwestern Energy, a low-cost producer of natural gas. With the price of natural gas hitting a 10-year low, producers have suffered as a result. Southwestern is poised to benefit on the upside should prices recover, because of its cost structure and its hedges in place for 2012 and 2013. Finally, Southwestern has several oil exploration projects that could introduce some much-needed oil into its production mix.
As oil prices climb, investors can find opportunities to ride the wave of surging profits for energy companies.
