Investors who complain that nothing is cheap these days aren't
Today, natural gas currently sells for once-in-a-lifetime,
fire-sale prices. The price has fallen 68% from the highs of
2008. And last traded this low back in 2002.
Buying natural gas at today's prices is like buying a
gallon of gasoline for about 87 cents a gallon.
With about as much certainty as I can muster, I believe
natural gas prices will rise over the next five years.
How is that possible? The simple answer is technology.
Sure, we already heat our homes with natural gas and use it in
manufacturing. And we'll continue to do so.
But technology is making it possible to use natural gas in the
same way we currently use oil. We can put it in cars, trucks and
buses. We can put it in ships and export it around the world
The immediate and obvious growth potential is clearly in
Right now, there are just 1,000 natural gas fueling stations
in the U.S. Compared with the 100,000 gasoline stations, it's
clear that these are the early days for natural gas.
Today just 0.1% of natural gas is currently used to fuel
vehicles. That's right - one-tenth of one percent.
That's tiny, especially when compared with crude oil, where 68%
is used for transportation.
In the U.S., there are only 120,000 natural gas powered
vehicles. That number is tiny, but growing quickly thanks
to technological advancements.
There are several companies that sell kits that can be used to
convert a gasoline-powered car to natural gas. And even the
big automakers - known to be slow to adopt - are getting in on
the natural gas opportunity.
Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors already offer dual-fuel
pickup trucks. And in 2014, the Chevrolet Cruze will be
available with natural gas conversion at a cost of around
Companies that are in the oil and gas business are converting
their own vehicles, and building their own fueling
stations. Apache - one of the larger natural gas production
companies in the U.S. has built 21 fueling stations thus
far. And the company has converted more than 450 vehicles
to natural gas already.
The simple fact is that these are the very early stages for
natural gas powered vehicles. Much like the Internet and
other technological advancements, it's best to be a little early
than a little late to big growth opportunities.
That's why every investor should take notice of the major
changes that are already underway. Natural gas won't topple
gasoline or diesel anytime soon. But the cheap cost and
domestic abundance makes this fuel a no brainer.
We see big profit opportunities on the horizon for a select
group of companies in the U.S. energy sector. Growing
production and technological innovations will change the economy
and create a profit windfall for early investors in the
stocks. And it's my job to alert you to these phenomenal
