LNG stocks have gotten a bump up as Russia's clash with Ukraine boils on. The conflict may open the door to rejuvenated liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to Europe.
Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE: LNG) - an LNG stock we've been bullish on for quite some time - closed up 3.88% to $51.17 per share Tuesday. It's up 18.67% so far in 2014. Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) climbed 0.91% to $94.60, and 5.77% in 2014. Dominion Resources Inc. (NYSE: D) went up 1.02% to $69.29 per share, a 7.11% increase in 2014.
Cheniere reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders (basic and diluted) of $0.61 per share or $135.2 million for Q4. That compares to a net loss of $0.44 per share, or $94.3 million, for the previous year.
Thanks to developments in LNG exporting, Alaska may soon return to its energy glory days. And that's good news for investors looking for LNG stocks today.
Alaska's oil production peaked at more than 2 million barrels a day in 1988. That figure dropped to 531,000 barrels a day in 2013. Now projections call for a drop to 312,000 barrels a day within the next 10 years.
Global demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is expected to double by 2025, and that has investors looking for the best LNG stocks to buy now.
