Here in the US, proliferation of energy-hogging Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications ensures increased underlying demand for natural gas. That should benefit Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI), suggests Elliott Gue, editor of Energy and Income Advisor.
The S&P 500 Energy Index was recently more than 11% higher than where it began the year. The midstream-focused Alerian MLP Index is on a similar trajectory, up 12.3% year to date. Even the Philadelphia Oil Service Sector Index was up 7.4%, despite the fact producers are getting more done with fewer rigs and related services. I like CrossAmerica Partners LP (CAPL) here if you can buy on a dip, counsels Elliott Gue, editor of Energy and Income Advisor.
The good news from all the companies I follow reporting so far is they’re healthy on the inside and are on track for growth in 2024. That means they’re all still worthy of building positions in, at least so long as they’re trading below our highest recommended entry points. Meanwhile, I like coal, oil and natural gas producer Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP) here, notes Elliott Gue, contributing editor of Energy and Income Advisor.
Earlier this month, we highlighted 2024’s first big merger of oil and gas producers: Chesapeake Energy’s (CHK) long-rumored, all-stock purchase of Southwestern Energy (SWN). Now we have the first big midstream deal of the year. Energy Transfer LP (ET) is by far the most attractive play on this transaction, suggests Elliott Gue, contributing editor of Energy and Income Advisor.

You've probably heard the story about the Federal Reserve and the Great Inflation of the 1970s. Specifically, we're told the Burns Fed failed to tighten enough to quash inflation in the 1973-75 recession while the Volcker Fed's more forceful and persistent efforts finally slayed the inflation beast in the early '80s. The only problem is that's not how it works -- the Federal Reserve has little or no influence over oil, energy, and commodity prices, a key source of inflation then and now. In this presentation, Elliott will explain the real forces that drive the oil and commodity price cycles and the powerful force that actually brought an end to the oil price surge through the 1970s. He'll also explain how "green energy" policies pursued by governments the world over dramatically worsened the current cycle, delaying key adjustments that could bring down energy costs dramatically over the next few years. He'll detail specific stock and ETF investments to profit from the current energy and inflation supercycle. 

The past 18 months have been a wild ride for the energy market with oil trading over $100/bbl and under $70/bbl and US natural gas prices reaching 10+ year highs in the summer of 2022 only to crash under $2/MMBtu last spring. A year ago, the US and other developed countries were begging Saudi Arabia and the rest of OPEC for more supply; today the market is obsessed with how much, and for how long, the cartel I willing to restrict production to prop up prices.  In this session, Roger Conrad and Elliott Gue, will cut through all the noise and conflicting narratives about energy commodities and identify a handful of their top energy stocks to buy for 2024.

Resilient inflation means the tightest Fed policy since the 1980s isn't likely to reverse until the US economy enters a real recession. And that means the risk of another big leg down for stocks and bonds is rising daily. But there's also an emerging opportunity for investors to lock in monster returns, while others' portfolios evaporate. Here's where to look.

Since the Great Recession and financial crisis of 2007-09, only one decision has mattered for investors looking to generate superior returns—buying US technology and growth stocks on any dip in price. The equity market hegemony of this small US "Tech-Plus" contingent was also behind the S&P 500's outperformance over most equity benchmarks around the world from Europe to emerging markets and even small caps in the Russell 2000 index. In this session, I'll explain how the global experiment with negative interest rates and quantitative easing drove an epic bubble in a handful of stocks and market sectors and why there's still value to be found in key market sectors like energy.
