If you want to know the best natural gas stocks to own, you have to pay close attention to two things.  Geopolitics and weather.

It’s not rocket science, of course. It’s actually pretty simple to understand.  Warmer winter temperatures reduce demand, increase surpluses, and push prices down.  And geopolitics?  Well, the most recent and obvious example of this would be what has happened to Russia’s natural gas industry.

Prior to its invasion of Ukraine, Russia-owned Grazprom was the country’s most profitable company. But a couple weeks ago, it announced a net loss of $7 billion.  To put that in perspective, that’s roughly the entire GDP of Montenegro.

As reported in Reuters, this loss, which is the first it’s endured since around 1999, highlights the dramatic decline of Gazprom, which, since the collapse of the Soviet Union has been one of Russia’s most powerful companies.  It’s often been used as a leverage to solve disputes with its neighbors, such as Ukraine and Moldova.

Of course, shortly after the war in Ukraine began, Europe ran for the hills. It began doing the heavy lifting to limit its reliance on Russian gas. And it’s been successful. Mostly because it continues to bolster its ability to produce more of its own natural gas while increasing U.S. imports.

In fact, last year was the third consecutive year that the U.S. sent more LNG to Europe than to any other continent or individual country. And this reliance on U.S. natural gas is unlikely to end anytime soon. And that, dear reader, brings us to…

The 6 Best Natural Gas Stocks to Own Today

Even if Russia left Ukraine tomorrow, Europe will not return to relying on Russia for all that sweet natural gas. Because its own natural gas production, coupled with an increase in renewable energy production and U.S. imports allow the continent to avoid the pitfalls that come with being over reliant on Russian energy.  

And let’s face it. When it comes to energy and transportation fuels, getting this stuff from the U.S. provides a certain level of safety and stability. Something that Europe could never get from Russia.  Indeed, Russia’s loss is America’s gain.  And as long as natural gas demand in the U.S. remains strong, and Europe continues to rely heavily on American gas imports, the best natural gas stocks to own will continue to be American natural gas stocks.

Now, there are quite literally dozens of worthwhile natural gas stocks you can buy today.  But it’s good to get a piece of the whole pie.  In other words, get some exposure to producers, infrastructure developers, and of course, any of the major players in the LNG market, which continue to benefit from Europe’s demand for imports.  These include, but are not limited to …

  • Cheniere Energy (NYSE: LNG)
  • EQT Corporation (NYS: EQT)
  • Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMI)
  • Baker Hughes Company (NASDAQ: BKR)
  • Enbridge (NYSE: ENB)
  • Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: CHK)

You should also hone in on a few lesser-known American oil and gas stocks that are actively benefiting from the death of Russia’s oil and gas dominance, and can give you a lot more bang for your buck. 

I’m including a list of those stocks here, along with our latest intel on those stocks which proves, without a shadow of a doubt, that these are the ones that’ll likely deliver the biggest gains in the shortest amount of time. 

And after all, isn’t that really what all of us want, anyway?  Quick money?  Well, rest assured, there’s plenty of it.  And you can start getting some of this action for yourself, right now.  

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
