After a more than a seven-year bear market, energy stocks are again the market leaders. Energy and Income Advisor readers have enjoyed multiple opportunities to buy very low the past two years, starting with our bottom tick call in April of 2020 and more recently our six top picks for 2022. That group has beaten the S&P 500 by almost 50% year-to-date.

  • Unveil our four top energy picks for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
  • Unmask energy stocks you'll still want to avoid.
