Joel: Looking back this past year, there's been a lot of good stories. A lot of investors out there, there are so many options. What were some of the best investments you saw? What were some of the companies? What was your best energy investment from this past year?

Taylor: Luckily I got in with Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT:LNG) relatively early this year. Especially as of late, they've been really popping off with the news of Total (NYSE:TTE) coming in and basically purchasing all the capacity of that fifth train that they were kind of unsure about. It's supposed to be coming online in 2018, so I'm really big on them still.
