    In addition to the Turner, Chesapeake Energy plans to continue its appraisal work on several other formations in the area, including the Niobrara. These rock layers could enhance the company’s growth prospects given what peers like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) have uncovered in the area. Last October, EOG Resources unveiled that its appraisal efforts confirmed that the Niobrara and Mowry shale plays underneath its Powder River Basin acreage hold nearly 2 billion BOE of recoverable resources, giving it three high-return growth targets in the region. These results provide more evidence that the Powder River Basin could be a significant growth driver for Chesapeake in the coming years.

    EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) has done an excellent job enriching its shareholders over the past two decades. Investors, for example, who bought $1,000 of the company’s stock following its separation from Enron 20 years ago would have seen that grow into more than $25,000 over that time frame, which is much better than the $3,200 they’d have made by investing the same amount into the S&P 500.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, earnings at both Williams and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were down slightly versus the year-ago period due to asset sales, while cash flow modestly increased thanks to lower interest expenses.

    If you are looking for a dividend stock, using a 3% yield hurdle is a pretty low bar. There are a lot of companies that offer that level of yield without needing to take on huge risks. That said, if you’re willing to do a little digging, you can do better than that without taking on material extra risk. Three stocks yielding way more than 3% that are worth a deep dive right now are integrated energy Goliath ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), diversified midstream major ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE), and food giant General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS).

Hot Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Concho Resources Inc.(CXO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crude prices in the U.S. continued their ascent today, rising nearly 3% to about $72.50 a barrel — the highest level since late 2014 — after the U.S. government reported a massive drawdown of oil storage levels. This news sent most oil stocks soaring, including Sanchez Energy (NYSE:SN) — up 12% at one point — and Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), which rallied nearly 6% by the mid-afternoon and was one of the biggest gainers in the S&P 500. However, that rally in the oil market didn’t drive up the entire sector as CNX Midstream (NYSE:CNXM) and Mammoth Energy Services (NASDAQ:TUSK) both tumbled double-digits on the day.

    Several well-respected oil CEOs have made it clear that they have no appetite for making a big acquisition, even though oil prices have improved dramatically. However, not all companies are against mergers and acquisitions (M&A). Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) made waves earlier this year when it acquired RSP Permian (NYSE:RSPP) in a $9.5 billion deal. Concho CEO Tim Leach even saw his company’s transaction as a “roadmap for in-basin consolidation” in the Permian. While it has yet to set off an M&A boom, that doesn’t mean transaction activity won’t heat up.

Best Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

May 9, 2018: Markets opened higher Wednesday before dipping below the break-even line in the late morning and then taking off for a couple of hours in the afternoon to put equities on track for a decent daily gain. Energy stocks rose mostly steadily as the U.S. rejection of the Iran deal is widely believed to be quite bullish for oil prices and everything connected to black gold. Interestingly, both the dollar and 10-year Treasuries posted solid gains today as well.

WTI crude oil for June delivery settled at $71.14 a barrel, up 3% for the day after a bullish inventory report to go with the news about the Iran nuclear deal.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Martin Midstream Partners L.P.(MMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Master limited partnerships (MLPs) Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) and Martin Midstream Partners (NASDAQ:MMLP) currently yield a jaw-dropping 13.7% and 17.4%, respectively. Both payouts are well above the 8% average yield of MLPs held in the Alerian MLP Index, which is a clear sign that the market doesn’t believe in the long-term viability of these payouts. Their unsustainability is even more apparent when we look at the embarrassingly weak financial profiles currently backing these payouts, which is why investors should steer clear of these high-yield stocks.

    ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) has made several shrewd moves over the past few years, which have positioned it to grow its high-yielding dividend at a high rate. One of the latest is its recent deal to buy out Martin Midstream Partners’ (NASDAQ:MMLP) 20% interest in the West Texas LPG pipeline system. With full control of that pipeline, the company can more aggressively pursue expansion opportunities, which recently led it to secure a second project on the system that positions it for even more growth in the future.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation(APC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    This transaction follows an earlier one where ConocoPhillips bought Anadarko Petroleum’s (NYSE:APC) 22% interest in the Western North Slope of Alaska as well as its interest in the Alpine pipeline for $400 million in cash. That deal gave ConocoPhillips total control of an asset that wasn’t core to Anadarko’s operations. ConocoPhillips, on the other hand, sees it as a core part of its future due to the promising Willow discovery, which holds an estimated 300 million barrels of oil. The company recently drilled three appraisal wells that further verified the potential of that play as well as three more exploration wells that each made additional discoveries.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon pointed out that it can achieve this higher production rate without increasing its capital budget, which remains at $2.3 billion. That’s worth noting since large peers ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) recently increased their budgets. In both cases, two factors drove the spending boost: Cost inflation and a ramp-up in activity from some drilling partners. Marathon, on the other hand, has been able to keep spending on target while boosting output at a faster pace through increased efficiency. In fact, the company noted that it was able to reduce its rig count in the Delaware Basin from five to four entirely due to efficiency gains while still anticipating that it can complete 50 to 55 wells in the region. While both ConocoPhillips and Anadarko are also delivering efficiency gains, they haven’t been enough to offset a spending increase.

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.
