Tap Into Energy’s Gushing Profits
Amanda Heckman|February 11, 2023
Imagine if you threw a dart at a dartboard… and no matter where it landed, you won.
That was what investing in the energy sector was like last year.
The industry’s 62% gain over 12 months made lots of investors very happy…
Not to mention rich.
Tight energy supplies sent Big Oil soaring while the S&P 500 fell nearly 20%.
At year’s end, Exxon was up 87%… Chevron was up 58%… and Shell was up 36%.
It was almost too easy.
Even master limited partnerships (MLPs) and midstream energy companies saw generous gains.
MLPs, represented by the Alerian MLP Index (AMZ), led the way with a 30.9% total return. Broader midstream companies, represented by the Etracs Alerian Midstream Energy Index (AMNA), gained 21.5% for the year.
Now, we’re not one to turn our noses up at healthy double-digit gains… especially in a bearish market…
But our research shows that with some easy adjustments, energy investors could have done even better last year.
More importantly… if you apply the ideas we’ll share with you today, we believe you could do even better this year.
Take a Shot
It’s common knowledge that many energy stocks did well last year because of soaring energy prices.
As they tend to do, higher prices lifted all boats.
All the big, boring megacorporations enjoyed gains without needing to innovate. It was business as usual.
But there were some smaller companies that blew the roof off 2022…
Like KLX Energy Services (KLXE). This $144 million oilfield services company soared 458% last year. Its team of engineers develops innovative, proprietary tools that provide critical services to oil drillers and producers. It has a diverse customer base of more than 760 clients… including Chevron, ConocoPhillips and Occidental Petroleum.
And Nine Energy Service (NINE), a $334 million oilfield services company, skyrocketed 1,353% in 2022. It specializes in custom technology for the most complex wells in North America… including a dissolvable plug that reduces emissions, increases safety and reduces drilling times.
It’s more proof of what Andy’s been saying for months.
Investors need to take a “sniper shot” approach to these markets. (Our Alpha Money Flow subscribers know this well.) When you zero in on specific opportunities instead of taking a higher-level, sector-based approach, the potential for gains is much bigger.
Especially in volatile times.
After all, a smaller company can pivot more easily to changing market demand… or a changing economy… and that’s especially valuable in the red-hot oil and gas sector.
Looking for these types of stocks gives investors a shot at some truly remarkable gains.

Andy has uncovered an under-the-radar company in the oil and gas sector with a breakthrough technology that could transform America’s energy landscape. And he’s convinced an announcement on March 1 will send the stock soaring as much as 740% in the next two years.
