One of the best things that investors can do in a volatile market is to focus on reliable sectors whose earnings and profits are growing and staying on track. You have to look at who is making money right now, and what industries stick out as being solid and consistent amid the chaos.
There's one industry that sticks out as being remarkably consistent despite everything that's happened so far this year, and that's traditional energy - oil and natural gas.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has forced the fossil fuels industry to reorganize their supply chains, and it's caused nations that have historically been dependent on Russian assets to seek alternatives in order to handle their supply needs.
And this is happening during a time when the pandemic is waning, governments are easing restrictions, and people are eager to travel.
All this means that the price of oil and gas is soaring once again. According to AAA, Americans pay around $4.20 per gallon at the pump as of this writing.
That's not great for us, but oil and gas companies are breaking records. Some are reporting doubled (or, in Chevron's case, quadrupled) earnings, and I think it's time we get a share of the profits.
The stock I'm recommending today is a giant among giants in the oil business, with end-to-end coverage of every part of the process required to get fuel to customers, from extraction to delivery. It's about to initiate a huge buyback program, and the shares combine a great dividend with tremendous upside potential.

A lot of talking heads are forecasting "doom and gloom" with rising oil costs. But I think it's completely unfounded.
The reason why is simple - good old American innovation. No problem is too large for our world-class entrepreneurs to solve, and a small firm has been developing a modular technology that could solve the energy crisis, uses 90% fewer materials than renewable energy sources and takes up 99% less space.
On June 30, it's expected to go public.
And your chance to secure its pre-IPO rights is quickly coming to a close.
For $3, I would seriously consider this the timeliest opportunity in the market right now.
About the Author
Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor's 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in "the pit" as a market maker.
The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX - to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd's TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company's "listed" and OTC trading desks.
Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.
Shah's vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story - when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.
Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.
Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business's Varney & Co.
