Investors all but wrote off natural gas as oversupply pushed prices down, but gas prices are sneakily rising to last year's levels. That's turning one of the best natural gas companies you can own into a must-buy right now.
Natural gas prices spiked to a one-year high of $3.51 mbtu in January, but collapsed in February. Gas prices plummeted 27% in little more than two weeks between the end of January and beginning of February.
While the plunge sent natural gas prices to their lowest point since 2016, gas prices typically drop after the worst part of winter ends. Natural gas prices tend to rise in the winter, as people use the gas to heat their homes, and fall off as the seasons change.

That's right in line with the EIA's "Short-Term Energy Outlook," which projects natural gas prices will continue their rise, hitting $3.30 by the end of the year. You see, despite a glut of natural gas that's kept prices down, Barclays is projecting gas inventories will be 17% below their five-year average, giving prices a sneaky boost.
And that means this rally should run into winter, right when natural gas gets its seasonal boost.
