3 Long-Shot Natural Gas Stocks With Huge Upside


Today's huge price spread between oil and natural gas creates enormous opportunity for the long-term investor. The domestic abundence of the resource has pushed many to consider the variety of ways it can be used both here and abroad. Some are looking at natural gas as a fuel source for vehicles, and others are looking at exporting the resource to other nations. Westport Innovations (NAS: WPRT) , Clean Energy Fuels (NAS: CLNE) , and Cheniere Energy (NYS: LNG) are among the most popular and potentially biggest winners in this race to exploit cheap natural gas. While all three companies have enormous upside potential, Austin likes Clean Energy Fuels over the other two. The fueling station infrastructure it's building creates an inherent moat, and the company has done an excellent job tying up with key companies to further the cause.

As good as Clean Energy Fuels is, though, there is one energy stock that could be even better. In fact, it could be The Only Energy Stock You'll Ever Need. It's a well positioned equipment provider that's poised to make investors today rich off the next energy spike. Read more about it.
