Elliott Gue knows energy. Since earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of London, Elliott has dedicated himself to learning the ins and outs of this dynamic sector, scouring trade magazines, attending industry conferences, touring facilities and meeting with management teams.

Elliott Gue’s knowledge of the energy sector and prescient investment calls prompted the official program of the 2008 G-8 Summit in Tokyo to call him “the world’s leading energy strategist.”

He has also appeared on CNBC and Bloomberg TV and has been quoted in a number of major publications, including Barron’s, Forbes and the Washington Post. Elliott Gue’s expertise and track record of success have also made him a sought-after speaker at MoneyShows and events hosted by the Association of Individual Investors.

Elliott Gue also contributed chapters on developments in global energy markets to two books published by the FT Press, The Silk Road to Riches: How You Can Profit by Investing in Asia’s Newfound Prosperity and Rise of the State: Profitable Investing and Geopolitics in the 21st Century.

Prior to founding the Capitalist Times, Elliott Gue shared his expertise and stock-picking abilities with individual investors in two highly regarded research publications, MLP Profits and The Energy Strategist, as well as long-running financial advisory Personal Finance.

In October 2012, Elliott Gue launched the Energy & Income Advisor, a semimonthly online newsletter that’s dedicated to uncovering the most profitable opportunities in the energy sector, from growth stocks to high-yielding utilities, royalty trusts and master limited partnerships.

The masthead may have changed, but subscribers can expect Elliott Gue to deliver the same high-quality analysis and rational assessment of investment opportunities in the energy patch.


US/EU Natural Gas Pact and Two New Portfolio Additions

You’ve probably seen the headlines about a deal between the US and European Union aimed at reducing Europe’s dependence on Russian fossil fuels.

One centerpiece of this agreement, unveiled on March 25th, is a US promise to work with international partners to ensure additional liquefied natural gas (LNG) volumes of 15 billion cubic meters (BCM) of natural gas for 2022 with “expected increases going forward.”

So, does this mean a surge in US natural gas prices and increased demand for US liquefied natural gas exports?

Russia and the Next Stage of the Energy Cycle

Earlier this month, global oil prices hit a 13-year high of nearly $140 a barrel. This week, they’ve backed off substantially.

As this issue of Energy and Income Advisor goes to post, Brent crude has dropped back to a level just north of $100. And West Texas Intermediate Crude at the Cushing hub has come back to the mid-$90s.

Energy stocks by and large have lagged the gains in commodity prices thus far in the cycle. But while holding their ground better on the retreat, they’ve also sold off from the highs of earlier this month. The S&P Energy Sector Index, for example, is still up almost 30 percent year to date. But it’s also down more than -10 percent from the high point earlier this month. The Alerian MLP Index of major dividend-paying midstream stocks has also lost about -10 percent of its value from the same date, reducing its 2022 gain so far to about 9 percent.

Portfolio: Reloading for the Energy Cycle’s Next Phase

This month, we’re dropping three stocks from the EIA Model Portfolio: The second half of our original position in Brookfield Renewable Partners (TSX: BEP-U, NYSE: BEP), Northland Power Inc (TSX: NPI, OTC: NPIFF) and Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN). In their places, over the next few weeks we’ll be tapping into stocks of companies positioned to take advantage of the next upleg of the energy price cycle.
