    It's absolute gospel in the world of investing to study and understand the moves that Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway are making - and then to follow them for profit.

    And with good reason: Buffett's track record speaks for itself - and he augments his capital-markets genius with the homespun, down-to-earth personality that's cemented his spot as a hero to the masses.

    One of Buffett's newest forays has taken his Berkshire investment vehicle into the energy sector.

    But he wasn't the first to get there. We were. And it's paying off in a big way...

Five Natural Gas Stocks Drinking Profits from the Utica Shale "Sweet Spot"

natural gas stocks

The Utica shale formation hasn't gotten as much attention as some of the others, but that may be about to change as drillers home in on a "sweet spot" in southeastern Ohio that is producing staggering amounts of natural gas.

Wells drilled in the Utica "sweet spot" were the main reason Ohio natural gas production more than doubled from 89.4 billion cubic feet in 2012 to 203 billion cubic feet in 2013.

This stunning development will pay off handsomely for these five natural gas stocks in particular...

The Irresistible Future of Natural Gas Investing

Today, I'm flying back from Houston... again.

It seems I've been spending quite a bit of time in Texas these days - and for good reason. The rollout of our exciting 25-well oil and natural gas investing project is just one.

But another revolves around the tremendous changes in the industry itself, especially when it comes to natural gas.

In fact, I just presented the keynote address before the annual meeting of the Gas Compressor Association at the Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston.

It dealt with the inescapable and irresistible future of natural gas.

The Government Foil to Energy Independence (and Profit)

As the rush to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) gathers steam, the Energy Advantage portfolio is primed for even bigger gains.

Make no mistake, LNG exports are now set to hand us one of the best investment opportunities of the decade.

That's a stunning reversal from just seven years ago, when everyone agreed the United States would be using LNG imports to meet 15% of its gas needs by 2020.

However, the unconventional shale boom (shale, tight, and coal bed methane) has changed everything we used to think about natural gas.

Now, even the most conservative Russian estimates acknowledge that the U.S. could be providing between 6% and 8% of all LNG exports worldwide by 2020.

In fact, Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE: LNG) has already garnered no fewer than five huge, multi-billion dollar, 20-year contracts with some of the largest European and Asian importers.

But new developments have suddenly thrown up another hurdle that threatens to delay all of this economic promise.

Here's the countermove that's brewing in Washington, D.C…

Natural Gas Stocks 2014: A Bullish Sign from This LNG Export News

LNG Ship

Natural Gas Stocks 2014: As Russia's clash with Ukraine and the West boils on, pressure is mounting for the federal government to loosen export regulations on U.S. liquefied natural gas.

Currently, the U.S. exports natural gas to only a handful of countries, such as Canada. No U.S. LNG is exported to Europe.

That's mainly because the key factor in gaining the U.S. Department of Energy's blessing to export is whether or not the importing country has a free-trade agreement (FTA) with the United States.

The Real Way the West Can Impact Ukraine

The weather is taking a decidedly better turn here in London these past few days.

It's a good thing, because all of the talk currently in British circles is about the deteriorating situation in Ukraine.

These concerns involve the all-too-obvious geopolitical impacts of a Russian takeover of Crimea and perhaps a broader swath of Eastern Ukraine.

However, there is another matter that has a more immediate impact on Europe, especially if the temperatures start falling again.

You see, despite the Russian-controlled natural gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea to northern Germany (Nord Stream) and across Belarus to Poland, most of the Russian natural gas coming to the continent still passes across Ukraine - about 80% in fact.

And Europe is still reliant upon this energy flow despite attempts to diversify.

That means the longer the crisis between Russia and Ukraine remains unresolved, the higher the tension level among Europeans will be.

Here's what that means... Full Story

Industrial pipe with gas and oil and water

The broader markets had a dismal month of January - the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 5.3% and the S&P 500 dipped 3.6% - but these liquefied natural gas (LNG) stocks all boasted strong returns.
