  • Roger S. Conrad

Roger S. Conrad needs no introduction to individual and professional investors, many of whom have profited from his decades of experience uncovering the best dividend-paying stocks for accumulating sustainable wealth.

Roger built his reputation with Utility Forecaster, a publication he founded more than 20 years ago that The Hulbert Financial Digest routinely ranked as one of the best investment newsletters. He’s also a sought-after expert on master limited partnerships (MLP) and former Canadian royalty trusts.

In April 2013, Roger reunited with his long-time friend and colleague, Elliott Gue, becoming co-editor of Energy & Income Advisor, a semimonthly online newsletter that’s dedicated to uncovering the most profitable opportunities in the energy sector.

Although the masthead may have changed, readers can count on Roger to deliver the same high-quality analysis and rational assessment of the best dividend-paying utilities, MLPs and dividend-paying Canadian energy names.

The Summer of Growth

There’s no doubt it’s been a disappointing summer for energy stocks.

Energy stocks were the best-performing group in the S&P 500 from the March 23rd lows through the June 8th peak, soaring 96.5%. However, from June 8th through the present date, energy reversed course, falling about 22.9% compared to a return of just under 9% in the S&P 500.

And that’s despite the fact that oil prices have continued a steady drift higher all summer from around $38 in early June to approximately $43 today while natural gas prices have climbed steadily from a June 25th low under $1.50/MMBtu to above $2.60/MMBtu.

Energy’s Best are Often its Biggest

This week, frac sand MLP-turned-C-Corp Hi-Crush Inc (OTC: HCRSQ) opened a new chapter in its long slide, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

It’s been literally years since this company was an Energy and Income Advisor recommendation—or since we’ve rated shares anything but a strong sell. But Hi-Crush’s now total demise does offer us several key lessons, as we build positions in best in class companies to capitalize on an energy sector recovery.

First, this bankruptcy is yet another demonstration that C-Corp conversions of MLPs are no antidote to financial and operating pressures.
