Six Great Energy Picks for 2022

By  Elliott H. Gue
Issue No.202 . Jan. 6, 2022

For energy investors, 2021 will go down as one of the best ever. Benchmark North American crude oil started the year priced well under $50 a barrel but finished at around $77, after spending much of it over $80. Natural gas went from under $2.50 per million BTUs to nearly $6.50, before settling at $3.76.

More than anything else, the commodities’ strength was responsible for lifting the S&P 500 Energy Index and Alerian MLP Index to memorable gains of 53.6 and 39.1 percent, respectively. And as we highlight throughout this issue, a well-chosen portfolio of individual energy stocks did even better.

Wise stock picking in energy mattered just as much in 2021 with the cycle turning higher as it has the past several years when the downside prevailed. And the same will be true in 2022 as the cycle enters its next phase.
