  • 6 Unsuspecting Energy Stocks Moving Upward 0 comments

     Finding  stocks that are not popularized and seeing positive trends are a diamond in the rough. This article will put you a step ahead of the rest. These are 6 energy stocks that are good investments at this very moment.
     

    ENI SPA (E) is trading around $49.22. ENI is a major integrated oil and gas company, based in Italy. These shares have traded in a range between $35.10 to $50.30 in the last 52 weeks. The 50 day moving average is $48.59 and the 200 day moving average is $43.58. E is estimated to earn about $5.08 per share in 2011 and $6.41 for 2012.

    What might make ENI a solid investment: ENI is one of the least known, of all the major integrated oil companies. Because of this, it is also one of the cheapest. According to Yahoo Finance, ENI has revenues of about $140 billion per year, so this is a major company even if it is not well known to U.S. investors. The PE ratio is less than 10 times earnings and E pays a strong dividend with a yield around 4%. ENI has operations in Libya, so it might be impacted by the crisis there.

    Energy Partners Ltd. (EPL) is trading around $17. Energy Partners is a independent oil and gas company, based in Louisiana. These shares have traded in a range between $9.61 to $16.88 in the last 52 weeks. The 50 day moving average is $15.54 and the 200 day moving average is $13.08. EPL is estimated to earn about $1.29 per share in 2011.

    What might make Energy Partners a solid investment: Analysts see earnings estimates for EPL jumping from $1.29 to $1.56 in 2012, as rising energy prices boost profit margins. Also, this company should benefit as waiting times and regulations for drilling permits in the Gulf of Mexico improve. Another plus is that insiders have been buying shares recently.
