Two years ago, when most pundits we’re predicting crude would remain around $100/bbl for years to come, we warned our readers of some troubling trends in the global oil market including a building glut of US shale oil production…

Many of our peers in the financial newsletter world sneered when we advised selling popular and widely recommended energy stocks like deepwater driller Seadrill and high-yield proppant mining MLP Hi-Crush Partners…

And most pundits vocally disagreed in August 2014 when, at a conference in San Francisco, we warned that one of the most respected Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) in the US was extremely overvalued and due for a significant correction…

Some actually laughed at us when, a little over a year ago, we predicted oil prices would touch $30 per barrel within 18 months and claimed that Saudi Arabia and Russia can’t afford HIGHER oil prices…

But Seadrill and Hi-Crush have eliminated their dividend payouts entirely, plummeting more than 90 percent since our sell recommendations…

The expensive MLP we warned about nearly 18 months ago is now down 49.1 percent from its highs in the summer of 2014…

And the critics were silenced as oil prices slipped to under $30/bbl over the past few weeks as Saudi Arabia reaffirmed its policy of targeting market share rather than oil prices.

Yk Gemisi

In short, we’re NOT permanent bulls on energy stocks and oil prices…

In fact, we think there’s more downside to come for oil this year and we’ve consistently advised our readers to use rallies in oil prices to sell out of most energy stocks.

But, we now see an opportunity in the energy space…An opportunity that most pundits are missing…

Something that, like our call to sell energy stocks in 2014, goes against the conventional group-think on Wall Street…

You see, opportunities like this just don’t come around every year, or even every decade…

The last time these key profit triggers lined up in energy markets was 1986, about 30 years ago…Back then, some energy stocks we track shot up 60.2%, 86.1% — even 433.2% in less than 3 years.

Simply put, if you want to lock in yields of up to 14.7% AND make some life-changing capital gains in the energy patch over the next few years, then this letter will show you how…I believe it will be one of the most important messages you’ve read in years.

I promised you I’d outline 7 Simple profit steps we’re recommending…here they are…

Profit Step #1: How You Can Profit Alongside Warren Buffett and Baron Rothschild with this Simple-yet-Powerful Wealth-Building Secret

Two hundred years ago in June 1815 investors were in a panic over Napoleon’s return to power in France…

But, legendary financier Baron Rothschild made a fortune buying British gilts (government bonds) when The Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo…

Rothschild advised investors to lean against extreme emotions and “buy when there’s blood in the streets.”

On October 16, 2008, billionaire investing legend Warren E. Buffett penned an op-ed in The New York Times entitled “Buy American. I Am”…

You see, when the Oracle of Omaha wrote that piece, the US was embroiled in the worst economid downturn since the Great Depression and global credit markets were in turmoil…

America’s largest banks and some of the oldest and most respected companies in the world went begging…

In short, investors were terrified…

Yet, Buffett advised readers to buy American stocks due to his simple-yet-powerful investing mantra “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”…

The result: Investors who followed Buffett’s advice didn’t catch the exact low in the S&P 500 (not even close) but they did score gains of 107.22 percent over the ensuing 5 years.

Look, what the experience of the world’s most famously successful investors – including men like Buffett, Rothschild, Onassis and Templeton – has taught us is that the best time to buy an asset is when it’s out of favor with the investment crowd…When most investors are scared to buy.

In my career I’ve seen manias including the housing lunacy of the mid-2000’s and the tech bubble of the late 1990’s and I’ve seen some nasty crashes including the Nasdaq crash in 2000-01 and the vicious Great Recession of 2008-09…

The post-Enron panic in essential services stocks that saw the Dow Jones Utilities Average lose more than 60 percent of its value between 2000 and 2002 and set up a life-changing buying opportunity in late 2002…An opportunity that resulted in gains of 384.7 percent between late 2002 and the end of 2015…

That’s nearly double the S&P 500’s performance over the same time period with risk and volatility one-third less than the broader stock market.

Even the 1998-99 panic in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) that prompted many to question the sustainability of an asset class that’s gone on to beat the S&P 500 by a margin of nearly 6-to-1…

Look, the recent carnage in the Master Limited Partnership (MLP) space has to rank among the most serious of my career…

Like the REITs in 1999 and the Utilities in 2001, some pundits caught up in the market panic are actually questioning the sustainability of the entire MLP model…

However, let me ask you this…

Did you know that even after a steep selloff over the past year, MLPs have outperformed stocks and bonds (along with most other popular asset classes) over the past 10 and 15 years?

And not by a small margin either…

Since the end of 2005, the industry benchmark Alerian MLP Index has soared 131.1 percent compared to 88.1 percent for an investment in the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond exchange-traded fund and 102 percent for the S&P 500…

And since 1999, the Alerian MLP Index has outperformed the S&P 500 by a more than 8-to-1 margin, returning 738.7 percent.

So, let me ask you…

Doesn’t it seem a little silly to declare a group of high-yield securities dead after so many years of strong performance?

I certainly believe so.

Today, with MLPs, Wall Street is once again throwing out the proverbial babies with the bathwater.

We’re no permanent-bulls on the MLPs…

For well over a year now, we’ve been advising readers of Energy & Income Advisor to sell many MLPs including all of the “upstream” names like Linn Energy and proppant sand MLPs including Hi-Crush Partners and Emerge Energy Services…

We’ve even had sell ratings on a long list of midstream (pipeline and storage) MLPs including Targa Resource Partners, Southcross Energy Partners and DCP Midstream Partners…

In fact, at last count, we rate only 26 of the 114 energy MLPs in our coverage universe (less than 1-in-4) as buys…

And, I’m certainly not predicting a V-shaped recovery in crude oil prices in 2016 – most of my peers in the financial newsletter business sneered when I called for oil to touch $30/bbl more than a year ago…

However, we see an epic buying opportunity just around the corner this year.

Look, right now, the Alerian MLP Index yields 9.85 percent, about 7 percent more than the 10-year US Treasury bond, the highest spread since early 2009…

That was the last time sentiment was this bearish on energy MLPs…

Well, 2009 proved to be an outstanding buying opportunity for the group…The Alerian MLP Index soared 76.4 percent in 2009 and 264.9 percent (a whopping 29.52 percent annualized) over the five years ended in 2013…

We believe, short term volatility aside, the next few months will prove to be a similarly outstanding opportunity to buy select MLPs.

That’s why my colleague Roger Conrad and I have spent countless hours preparing a special premium report on the sector entitled “Kicking the Tires on MLPs,” available for a limited time with absolutely no risk or obligation…

Here’s just a small sample of the crucial investing insight in this 62-page special report:

• The last 2 times New Yorkers and Bostonians wore shorts on Christmas Eve, this MLP jumped an average of 50.7 percent in less than 6 months…PLUS why this widely misunderstood 9.93% yielder is among the safest MLPs we cover…

• Why the customer is ALWAYS right about distributions in the MLP industry…and how this simple rule can save you a ton of cash…

• Why the management team at one MLP is smiling as natural gas prices tumble to 17 year lows…This partnership offers a rock-solid 5.7 percent yield that’s growing 8 to 9 percent per year…

• Why $2 gasoline prices are a windfall for this MLP and could mean a fast-growing tax-advantaged “paycheck” for you…

• How to lock in a 4.8 percent yield from the US oilfield some anbalysts have dubbed “the richest land on Earth”…PLUS…Why this yield is safe even with oil at $30 per barrel…

• The biggest risks facing MLPs this year…(HINT: Most have NOTHING to do with oil or gas prices)…

• All the details of an MLP with such a flawless record of distribution growth (46 consecutive quarters) we’ve dubbed it “Old Reliable,” this is the best buying opportunity for this bellwether we’ve seen in years…

• Why the most hated MLP deal of 2015 could hand you a 5.9 percent yield PLUS total returns over 215% in just the next 2 or 3 years…

• The 5 key characteristics you MUST understand to evaluate the risks of a distribution cut for any MLP PLUS our latest proprietary Distribution Safety Rating on dozens of MLPs…

Look, I want to rush you a copy of this comprehensive report today while you still have time to get in on the ground floor of a life-changing buying opportunity in the group…

In just a few moments, I’ll explain exactly how to reserve your copy today with absolutely no risk or obligation…

And that brings me to this…

Profit Step #2: How an Italian Dessert Could Make You Some Serious Cash

Earlier on in this letter, I explained how we see a massive buying opportunity in the energy space over the next few months…

And how the last time these profit triggers lined up, the Energy & Income Advisor Survivors Index returned more than 600 percent, even though crude oil prices fell about 20 percent…

BUT…I also warned you that this buying opportunity is highly selective and that some of the most widely recommended energy stocks around are actually extremely dangerous investments…

There will be very clear haves and have-nots in the energy space over the next few years and it’s absolutely crucial you understand the 5 key characteristics that separate the wheat from the chaff.

So, what exactly are those 5 key characteristics?

Well, the first is simple: Location, location, location…

During the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s, producers with access to acreage in a handful of key cheap-to-produce oilfields around the globe were able to keep producing oil profitably despite plummeting energy prices…

These producers generated free cash flow even with oil less than $20 a barrel and were able to demand even bigger price concessions from their key service and equipment suppliers amid the downturn of the late 80’s and early 90’s…

Even better, some of these companies were able to use their positive free cash flow to make acquisitions…Buying up acreage in core plays from financially troubled competitors at fire sale prices because of the energy market downturn…

Others became targets for larger companies looking to beef up their own acreage in quality, cheap-to-produce plays…When these stocks were acquired it was usually at a huge premium price.

Over the next two years, I believe there will be an epic buying spree in one of North America’s largest oil and gas fields…a round of deal-making that could make the energy merger boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s look like child’s play…

In fact… It’s already happening…

Contacts in the energy business tell me that energy giant ExxonMobil has a small army of experienced oilmen and geologists in the field looking to grab drilling acreage or form joint ventures with companies in this play…

Exxon already grabbed an additional 48,000 acres in this region as part of two deals closed in August…

Another US producer – NOT a tiny firm but a company worth $19 billion — with 3.2 million acres in this field was recently approached about an acquisition by an even larger competitor, helping send the stock up close to 60 percent in a matter of less than 2 months…

And, private equity – the market’s “smart” money – is also getting involved. It’s estimated that private equity firms have raised more than $50 billion to fund more than 80 teams that are scouring this section of the US, looking for acreage to buy at attractive prices.

Look, to understand why this field is so attractive, you just have to understand the difference between a jelly donut and tiramisu…

New old drilling

Conventional oilfields are like jelly donuts…

Oil in the reservoir is trapped in the pores of reservoir rock under tremendous pressure so producers simply drill into that formation, allowing the oil to flow into the well naturally…

Since the pores of conventional reservoir rock are well interconnected, oil in the field can flow easily through the rock and into a well…it’s just moving from an area of high pressure (the field) into an area of low pressure (the well) just as wind flows from regions of high pressure to regions of low pressure…

Shale fields are more like tiramisu…

Oil (and gas) are trapped in layers of rock underground…

Shale contains many pores and cracks but they aren’t well-connected, making it tough for oil to flow through the rock and into a well.

To produce shale fields, producers use two crucial techniques: horizontal drilling and fracturing…

Horizontal drilling allows the producer to target individual layers of rock that contain the largest quantities of oil…Meanwhile, hydraulic fracturing is a technique that allows producers to break up the reservoir rock, improving the flow of oil through the field and into a well.

The best shale fields – like the best tiramisu – contain multiple “stacked” layers of productive shale formations…

Each of these rock layers can be targeted individually meaning that a producer can drill multiple formations under the same acre of land, potentially doubling, tripling or quadrupling the productivity of this play.

The shale field that’s attracting the attention of ExxonMobil and so many other massive producers in the US today is potentially the largest and tastiest piece of tiramisu ever discovered, anywhere in the world. This ultra-productive play spans an area that’s larger than the entire State of Washington and contains as much as 5,000 feet of stacked, productive oil-bearing layers for producers to target…

A single layer of this play holds as much as 75 billion barrels of oil… That’s enough to supply the entire world with oil for two years.

Bottom line: Some producers in the region can earn 30 to 40 percent returns on wells in this field EVEN with oil as low as $40 per barrel.

Look, right now plunging oil prices have many pundits and investors paralyzed by fear…

However, we’re nearing a crucial stage of this energy down-cycle — a time much like March and April of 1986 – when crude oil prices will begin to stabilize and settle into a long-term trading range…A time when select energy stocks will shoot higher, outperforming the broader market by a huge margin, just as they did in the late 80’s and early 1990’s…

Please understand, we’re NOT quite there yet…However, our research confirms this epic buying opportunity is just around the corner…

I don’t want you to miss out on this.

When oil prices do stabilize, investors are going to start looking for the best-placed stocks to buy…Energy stocks that share 5 crucial characteristics that will allow them to actually take advantage of the downturn in energy prices…

I know that sounds pretty incredible but, just remember, the 14 stocks in our Energy & Income Survivors Index returned more than 600% between 1986 and 1997 DESPITE a 20 percent drop in energy prices.

Listen, it’s time to assemble your shopping list of energy stocks to buy at the bottom of this supply cycle and one of the 5 key characteristics we look for – perhaps the single most important trait shared by the biggest winners at this stage of the cycle – is location…I’m talking about exposure to fields that offer low production costs and positive returns even with oil prices in the $40’s…

In short, the biggest winners will be companies with exposure to plays just like the US shale “tiramisu” that’s currently being quietly bought up by private equity insiders and massive energy bellwethers like Exxon Mobil.

After months of research and fine-tuning, Roger Conrad and I have developed a strategy for identifying and accumulating the best-placed energy stocks at the bottom of this supply cycle for crude oil…Stocks we believe could generate you some truly life-changing wealth in coming years…

We call it our “Dream Buys” strategy and we’ve assembled all of the details in a comprehensive 22-page report titled “Making Dreams a Reality: How to Profit from the Buying Opportunity of a Lifetime.”

This report will explain in great detail:

How to time with shocking accuracy the true bottom for oil prices…

Exactly where we see oil prices headed over the short and long-term and why the next 6 months could be the MOST important part of the cycle for long-term investors…

• The “tiramisu” shale field that’s getting so much attention from private equity firms and big oil giants like ExxonMobil….And exactly which companies hold the best acreage in what one energy market insider recently called “the richest land on Earth”…

• The Houston-based company that’s perfected a series of exciting new drilling technologies, reducing the time it takes to drill a well in one of its core shale fields from more than 20 days in 2012 to as little as 5.6 days today, dramatically reducing the cost of drilling wells and boosting its returns…

• How the same energy producer recently shocked analysts by saying that it earns at least a 35 percent return on investment in all of its core plays with oil prices at $50 per barrel…

• Why a single well (called the Riverview 102-32H) drilled back in July could unlock 500 million barrels of oil, worth more than $20 billion (even at today’s prices) for one energy producer…

• All the details of the one US-based energy producer with core acreage in 3 of America’s most prolific oil and gas fields (a company that industry giant Exxon Mobil is reportedly drooling over)…A stock currently trading around $60 that could be worth $120 or more per share in an acquisition…

• The one US producer with the most concentrated exposure to the giant “tiramisu” shale field in the US…a producer with acreage so productive that it halved the number of drilling rigs it’s running this year yet still generated production growth of 25 percent…It’s only a matter of this time before one of the industry heavyweights snaps up this firm for a huge premium…

• The one key characteristic shared by the best-performing Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) – a golden trait that’s shared by more than half of the 10 best-performing high-yield MLPs over the past 5 and 10 years…

• An MLP with a 9.2 percent yield that’s been boosting its payout to investors at a 5.5 percent annualized pace over the past 5 years…And, best of all, this partnership actually benefits from falling energy prices…

• How to play growth in alternative energy while earning a safe 4.2 percent yield…You’ll be shocked to learn the name of the company that’s the biggest investor in alternative energy in the US (HINT: It’s not Tesla or SolarCity)…

• Our comprehensive shopping list of more than 20 energy companies and high-yield, tax-advantaged Master Limited Partnerships…Including our exclusive “Dream Buy” strategy that shows you exactly how and when to buy these stocks…

Normally, this report would only be available to paid-in-full subscribers to our Energy & Income Advisor service…However, for a limited time, we’ve decided to make this report available risk-free as part of a trial subscription to our service…

Profit Step #3: Earn Yields up to 14.6% with the “Smyrna Secret”

On September 21st 1923, a young man steps off an Italian steamer into the bustling port of Buenos Aires. Just 17 years old, he’s one of about 1,000 Europeans immigrating to Argentina on the same ship…

He has just $60 in his pocket…

Over the next few weeks, to make ends meet, he takes jobs as a dishwasher and helping unload ships docking at the port. He takes up residence in a cramped apartment in one of the least expensive parts of the city…

Soon, he lands a job as the night-shift switchboard operator for a local telephone company…

Look, Buenos Aires was a prosperous city in the 1920’s…

In fact, some dubbed Argentina’s capital the “Paris of South America”…

This young immigrant watches residents enjoying the city’s cafes, restaurants and cosmopolitan atmosphere and he quickly grows determined to turn his paltry grubstake into a great fortune that would allow him to enjoy all the luxuries the world has to offer…

But, here’s the most shocking part of this story…

While many young European immigrants to the New World dreamed of great wealth, this man actually succeeded in becoming rich…

In fact, he became spectacularly wealthy very, very quickly

Just how rich you might ask?

Well, by 1929, just six years after sailing for Argentina and a still-youthful 23 years old, this man was worth over $1 million. That was a princely sum in 1929 worth upwards of $13 million in 2015 dollars…

But, it was just the start for this young entrepreneur. By the mid-1930s, despite a vicious global Depression, he was already one of the wealthiest men in the world. He went on to own one of the largest private yachts in the world…

You see, in Argentina, this young man learned a simple yet extremely powerful wealth-building technique we call “The Smyrna Secret”…

The “Smyrna Secret” isn’t some sort of get rich quick scheme or dodgy bet on a penny stock…

It’s not a complex options strategy and you don’t have to watch the market like a hawk all day to generate some serious wealth from the “Smyrna Secret.”

In fact, the “Smyrna Secret” can be an excellent strategy for income investors who prefer to buy and hold stocks for long periods. And, what’s most important, the “Smyrna Secret” is just as powerful at building wealth today as it was nearly a century ago in the 1920’s and 1930’s…

Listen, the man I’m talking about is shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.

The son of a successful merchant, Onassis was born in the city of Smyrna located in present-day Turkey in 1906. While born into considerable wealth, his family’s fortunes took a turn for the worse in 1922 when Turkish forces gained control of Smyrna near the end of the Greco-Turkish War…

In fact, Onassis’ father barely escaped Smyrna with his life in 1922…

You see, a 16-year old Onassis had to pay $25,000 to ransom his father…

Once the family relocated to Athens, an enterprising Aristotle Onassis left for the New World to build his own fortune…

For many, the Onassis name is indelibly linked to the shipping industry…

But that’s not how Aristotle Onassis started building his wealth…

Onassis made his first million importing high quality Turkish tobacco for sale in prosperous Buenos Aires…

Look, the “Smyrna Secret” has nothing specifically to do with cigarettes or smoking; however it was during his time as a tobacco merchant that Onassis developed and refined his wealth-building strategy.

Onassis’ cigarette import business was extremely profitable in Argentina but his success quickly encouraged others to copy his business model eroding profit margins. Some even resorted to sabotage, contaminating rival suppliers’ tobacco to make it unsalable…

But, Onassis didn’t despair when the industry he created began to lose its luster. Instead, he noticed something truly shocking…

While Argentina’s tobacco importers and cigarette manufacturers were at war over a few pennies in profit, one small group of savvy businessmen was consistently making money. In fact, this essential industry made money like clockwork…

They raked in the cash regardless of cigarette pricing, fickle consumer tastes and changing brand preferences…

This one industry acted as a middleman, exacting a toll on virtually every sale Onassis and his competitors made…In short, the ambitious, hard-working entrepreneur had discovered something that would make him wealthier he’d ever dreamed. Far wealthier than selling cigarettes or importing high quality tobacco…

In fact, far wealthier than manufacturing or selling any type of product…

In short, Onassis had discovered how to tap the almost limitless profit potential of shifts in the world’s largest market…

Look, the world’s largest market is global trade worth upwards of $45 trillion a year according to a recent report from the World Bank.

Onassis noticed that even when he was earning only thin margins selling cigarettes in Argentina, a small group of wealthy ship-owners were earning fat fees for transporting tobacco and supplies from Turkey and Europe to Argentina. And these same merchants earned tolls regardless of whether consumers bought cigarettes from Onassis or one of his many competitors.

These same shipowners earned fees regardless what products or commodities consumers bought – whether they owned cargo ships or tankers, these shipowners were simply exacting a small toll on every good or commodity traded worldwide.

Well, my firm has done a ton of research on this and there’s a shift in global trade underway right now that’s just as powerful as the trends that made Onassis rich nearly a century ago…

In our new special report “The Smyrna Secret: 5 Stocks to Buy Now,” we unveil these powerful wealth-building secrets including:

• How booming global trade in what the International Energy Agency calls a “Miracle Fuel” could earn you an 11.7 percent yield…

• If you invested just $25,000 in this stock at the end of 1999, your investment would now be worth a life-changing $448,650 and you’d currently be earning $23,394 in tax-advantaged distributions every single year…This stock currently offers a 6 percent yield and is so dependable and consistent we’ve nicknamed it “Old Reliable”…

• Why a nondescript government building on the corner of 14th Street and Constitution Avenue in Washington DC is your key to a 14.7 percent yield…

• An Argentinean ship-owner named Alberto Dodero once advised Onassis to “Buy Cheaply, Keep Your Overhead Low and Sell for a Profit.” We’ll explain how one company following Dodero’s advice could score you gains of 200% to 500% over the next 36 months…

• An exciting new technology that reduces the cost and infrastructure investment needed to supply energy to consumers. This company owns an asset so rare there are only 20 of them in the world…We’re shocked more investors aren’t talking about this stock especially since it offers a yield of more than 9.3 percent.

Listen, I want to rush you a copy of our new report “The Smyrna Secret: 5 Stocks to Buy Now” so you can profit from our 5 high-yield recommendations – starting immediately…

In just a moment, I’m going to show you exactly how to get your hands on this report with absolutely no risk or obligation.

But first, I want to tell you a little more about this:

Profit Step #4: A Certain Winner in Uncertain Times: Our Favorite New MLP

Master Limited Partnerships or “MLPs” are a group of tax-advantaged high yield investments that have blown the S&P 500 out of the water over the past decade. And over past 15 years the industry benchmark Alerian MLP Index has soared 773% compared to a gain of less than 100% for the S&P 500…

However, we’ve identified one simple characteristic you can use to identify the top-performing MLPs…

One MLP with this simple trait soared 888% over the past decade…Enough to turn a $10,000 investment into nearly $100,000.

Another MLP we identified with this same golden characteristic has jumped over 172% since going public in 2011, more than 2 times the return for the S&P 500…

You’ll be shocked at how well this one simple trick for identifying the top-performing MLPs works…

And we’ve included all of the details of this strategy and one of our top MLPs to buy right now in our special report called “A Certain Winner in Uncertain Times: Our Favorite New MLP” available risk-free for a limited time

I’ll show you exactly to reserve your copy in just a moment…

However, before we get to all that, I want to tell you about a major surprise trend that most investors and pundits in the financial media are getting totally wrong. I’m not exaggerating: Investors who get this trend wrong could face losses of 50 to 70 percent over the next 6 months alone while those on the right side of this epic shift can lock in yields of 4.11 percent, 6.03 percent…. EVEN 10.48 percent right now

Profit Step #5: Why So Many Investors Are About to Make a Serious Mistake…And… 7 Ways You Can Profit

Look, a little over 10 years ago, I attended a conference at the Washington DC Convention Center put on by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the statistical arm of the US Department of Energy. For the next two days I attended dozens of lectures and roundtables hosted by industry experts, financial analysts and (even more commonly) government officials at all levels…

The main topic of conversation: America’s growing need to import natural gas in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to meet demand. You see, conventional wisdom at that time was that US natural gas production was in a state of terminal decline and Canadian output would soon be insufficient to meet growing demand south of the border…

Most predicted US natural gas prices would continue to rise and the nation would become increasingly dependent on output from LNG exporters like Qatar and Russia to meet demand…

Well, that consensus view – the view espoused by most at the EIA conference — was wrong… dead wrong.

Within four years from the date of that conference, the US overtook Russia to become the world’s largest natural gas producer…

Thanks to a series of massive shale gas fields and some innovative technologies developed by American gas exploration and production companies, US natural gas production has soared from about 52 billion cubic feet per day in 2006 to 75 billion cubic feet per day in 2015…

And… Here’s what’s really shocking…

Today, America’s LNG import terminals sit largely idle and the US is now on track to be one of the world’s largest exporters

The first shipment of US LNG exports is likely by the end of 2015 and pipeline exports of gas from the US to Mexico hit a record high of 3.3 billion cubic feet per day in July 2015… By 2030, US gas exports to Mexico are expected to nearly triple to around 9 bcf/day.

But, here’s what has me really worried…

Every week, I read commentary on energy markets from dozens of analysts, newsletter writers and industry pundits…Once again, most are about to make a huge mistake…

This mistake will be every bit as costly as betting on rising US gas imports and prices over the past decade…Maybe even worse.

Please, before you make any more investments related to natural gas, may I send you a copy of my latest report entitled US Natural Gas: Outlook and Investment Guide?

In this 45-page report, Roger and I have assembled all of our research on natural gas and LNG…I promise you’ll be glad you have this research in hand over the next few weeks…

In this comprehensive report, you’ll learn:

• Why a tidal wave – more than 30 bcf/day – of natural gas is headed to States like Florida, North Carolina, Louisiana and New York…And all the details of 3 stocks that will reap the rewards…

• The worrying trend (something that few outside the industry are even aware of) that will force some popular and widely held MLPs to slash their distributions…Yes, that includes several MLPs with long-term fee-based contracts…

• 44 crucial pipeline projects we’re watching…We’re shocked most investors are still ignoring these deals…

• 4 MLPs (with yields as high as 10.48 percent) that will thrive whether has sells for $1/MMBTU or $5…

• The overlooked fuel source that will keep a lid on has prices for years regardless of winter weather or El Nino (Hint: Environmental groups HATE this)…

As I mentioned, this report will show you EXACTLY how to invest profitably in natural gas over the next few years and lock in yields of 4.11 percent, 6.03 percent… EVEN 10.48 percent starting immediately

I’ve written up all the details including the names of 5 popular but dangerous natural gas focused stocks to avoid.

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) represents utilities that provide power for 220 million Americans in all 50 States and DC… A group of companies with an annual capital spending budget of around $90 billion.

The conference also offers unparalleled access to senior management at many of the EEI’s member firms through exclusive question and answer sessions and individual breakout meetings.

It’s not hard to see why it’s considered the premiere annual event for analysts and institutional investors at private equity firms, hedge funds and a Who’s Who list of Wall Street investment banks.

But the EEI event is very expensive…

Admission to this conference starts at $1,500 and, frankly, unless you understand the fundamentals of all the companies in attendance and exactly what questions to ask, that ticket price probably isn’t worth it.

But, what if I told you it’s possible to ride shotgun with Roger at the EEI Conference… All with no risk or obligation?

Let me explain…

I just sat down with Roger Conrad for a two-hour long debriefing of his key takeaways and “Big Ideas” from the EEI Conference and we recorded the entire strategy session on video…

It turns out Roger spoke to more than three dozen CEOs and senior management teams and asked some really tough questions…He took so many notes he could barely cram his carry-on into the overhead bin for the flight home.

And he shares this wealth of insights and specific recommendations in this exclusive strategy session.

Here are just a few of the points we covered:

How one simple indicator Roger and I use at all conferences helped convince us to sell many Master Limited Partnerships in May 2014…And…What this “Billionaire’s Secret” indicator means for the utilities sector today.

The biggest opportunity in the electric power industry since the 1980s – A multi-year megatrend that received a ton of play at the EEI Conference – plus the names of all the big winners and losers (Warning: The stocks many investors are buying to play this trend stand to lose out…BIG TIME).

The most important speaker at the EEI event and how he transformed one of America’s largest utilities into one of our top investing ideas for 2016, offering a yield up to 5 percent.

Why Roger believes a small, overlooked firm that currently trades for around $8 a share could top $20 per share within 12 to 24 months.

Why one stock with a 4.1 percent yield is a baby that’s being thrown out with the bathwater…this firm is being tarnished because of its exposure to a troubled market even though the impact on earnings is negligible (PLUS: Why It won’t be long before investors catch on to this story.)

5 blacklist stocks that could cost you some serious cash over the next year.

Roger’s 5 top recommendations coming out of the conference…. Including picks for both conservative and aggressive investors.

A special bonus recommendation: This tax-advantaged Master Limited Partnership (MLP) has the one golden characteristic that has been behind many of the best-performing income investments we’ve ever encountered.

Look, Roger and I have charged as much as $399 for videos outlining our strategies, recommendations and outlook for energy markets…And dozens of customers have already paid as much as $199 for this special 2-hour long video report from the EEI conference…

Usually, we offer this sort of in-depth exclusive video report only to paid-in-full subscribers to Energy & Income Advisor…However, Roger and I are convinced this information can make you some serious cash and help you lock in an impressive income stream over the next 6 to 12 months so, for a strictly limited time, we’re offering immediate access to this exclusive video report as part of a risk-free trial subscription to Energy & Income Advisor

We won’t be extending this offer again…

In fact, we’re bound to receive complaints from some of our existing customers for offering this exclusive report as part of our no obligation trial…We’ll probably have to take down this bonus within a week.

Finally…

Profit Step #7: What Saudi Arabia Means for Your Portfolio

Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reported on the impact of crude oil’s plunge to 12 year lows below $30/bbl… An event we’ve been warning our readers about for more than a year now… Here’s the rest of the story, a deeper perspective on oil, energy stocks and MLPs you haven’t been reading in the mainstream financial media…

Residents of several cities reported lengthy lines of cars at gas stations waiting to fill up their tanks…

Some waited in vain as gas stations across the country shut down entirely to avoid running out of gasoline to sell…

No, I’m not talking about the United States or gasoline price controls and rationing measures in the early 1970s, I’m talking about Saudi Arabia on Monday evening.

You see, at the very end of last year, the Saudi government reported official spending and deficit figures for 2015 and unveiled more details of their budget for 2016…

In short, the government plans to slash spending by $36.1 billion in 2016, a serious cut when you consider that Saudi Arabia only has a population of about 29 million and an economy that’s less than 5 percent of the size of the United States…

Let’s put this into perspective: If the US government were to cut its federal budget by a similar percentage, it would need to slash spending by $532 billion…

That’s about half of total US “discretionary” spending (basically spending on everything but Medicare and Social Security) …

Can you imagine Congress and Obama ever agreeing to cuts that deep?

Look, one of the Saudi government’s main spending priorities is generous handouts for its residents including some very, very expensive subsidies of gasoline and utilities prices…

So, cutting spending really means the Saudis plan to cut those subsidies…Including a 50 percent bump in gasoline prices starting in 2016…

This year, Saudi consumers pay 0.60 riyal for a liter of 95 Octane gasoline (about 61 cents per gallon) and that’s jumping to 0.90 riyal per liter ($0.92 a gallon) starting next year…

So, some Saudis have been rushing to fill up their tanks before prices skyrocket next year, resulting in long lines at gas stations.

Listen, I didn’t write you today to bemoan the plight of the Saudi consumer…

Frankly, I don’t really care and it’s hard to feel sorry for people paying less than a buck for a gallon of gasoline anyway…

I’m writing because it’s absolutely crucial you understand the hidden meaning of the Saudi’s budget announcement…

The mainstream media did report on the Saudi budget at the end of last year and most of the stories focused on the big decline in Saudi Arabia’s government revenues due to falling oil prices…Or, in some cases, reporters focused on the government’s need to rethink its policy of boosting economic growth by spending the nation’s oil wealth…

But all that is old news and not particularly interesting.

What’s interesting is that the Saudis offered a fair amount of detail about their budget and spending plans for 2016… Usually, they’re much vaguer and more secretive…

And what’s even more shocking is that they’re basing their budget and deficit forecasts on $37/bbl Brent crude oil prices…

They’re even cutting some subsidies that many analysts have long thought untouchable…

It’s time to read between the lines…The Saudi government couldn’t have been any clearer even if they’d published an open letter to energy executives and other OPEC member states in the Wall Street Journal.

Saudi Arabia is digging in…

As I’ve been forecasting for more than a year now, they’re doubling down on their strategy of pumping more oil, targeting market share and allowing the market to set the price of crude…

They’re telling the world they can survive the current period of low energy prices for years if necessary…

They can continue this policy for as long as it takes to bring about real change and real cuts in global exploration and production spending…

The sort of cuts that will finally bring down production and stabilize oil prices…

In short, the Saudis are telling the world (once again) that they have no intention of “saving” the global energy market or bailing out shaky OPEC members like Venezuela by cutting oil output to prop up prices.

Their statement sends a very, very clear message to energy investors: The final chapter of the energy bear market has started…

There are literally just days left to prepare yourself to avoid the pain of the final whoosh lower in oil prices to $20 to $25/bbl…

And, to set yourself up to take advantage of the massive buying opportunity in energy that’s just around the corner.
