There’s no doubt about it, energy stocks have been on a bit of a roller coaster over the last few years. And much of that has to do with the rise and fall of overall oil and natural gas prices. As we’ve said time and time again, when your business is extracting a commodity, your fortunes rise/fall with that natural resource. Lately, the energy stocks’ roller coaster seems to be cresting the hump and heading towards another dip.
Which is exactly why investors should be buying energy stocks with both hands.
These days, the sector is much better off than before and represents a huge value. A value that is now full of sustainable cash flows, dividend increases and hefty buyback programs. For dividend seekers, the energy sector could be one of the best places to score some serious growth and income potential.
