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.


The New Energy Crisis

For the first time in four decades, inflation is a key risk in the US and other developed economies.

Indeed, according to the University of Michigan survey, US consumers expect annualized inflation of close to 3% over the long haul, a full 1% above the Fed’s 2% target level.

Meanwhile, more than 50% of small businesses in the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) survey reported that job openings were hard to fill in the month of August 2021, the highest reading in the history of this survey dating back to 1973.

Rising labor costs prompted FedEx (NYSE: FDX) to slash guidance in September while expectations for Q3 2021 US economic growth have plummeted since August as many fret that rising prices are beginning to pinch the consumer.

A New Energy Supercycle

Earlier this month, the Petrol Retailers Association (PRA), an organization representing almost 70% of gasoline stations in the United Kingdom, reported that two-thirds of the nation’s stations were out of petrol (called gasoline on this side of the Atlantic).

Extraordinary Energy Values in a Zero Rate Environment

Where do you find stocks offering near double-digit yields backed by businesses repeatedly posting strong results? In this zero interest rate environment, our answer would ordinarily be “dream on.” But that’s exactly the kind of value the Energy and Income Advisor Model Portfolio and High Yield Energy Target List offer now. And Q2 numbers and guidance updates have once again proven their financial strength and upside leverage to the energy price cycle. This issue’s Portfolio section has the run down for the 23 Portfolio and High Yield List companies that had not reported as of our previous EIA issue—where we unpacked results for Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE: KMI), Schlumberger Ltd (NYSE: SLB) and Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN).

What We’re Looking for in Q2 Results

Q2 earnings season is upon us with the first Portfolio reporters already in the books. That means it’s time to lay out what we’re looking for in companies’ numbers and guidance to answer the following: Do underlying businesses of our recommended companies demonstrate sufficient strength to merit fresh money buys, or should we move on to something with a better risk/reward?

What’s Important from the Portfolio’s First Q2 Reporters

Stocks featured in this article: Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE: KMI), Schlumberger Ltd (NYSE: SLB) and Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN). Three Portfolio companies have released their results and updated guidance so far during Q2 earnings reporting season. Here’s a brief look at the details for this trio.
