I'm a retiree and recently back into stocks. The Tech boom/crash was hard on me. I found Dividend Growth Investing on SA and it dazzled me with the ways it advantages regular people. Energy is my favorite area because of experience in leasing, geology, drilling, evaluation, and completion. Back in 1969-70 I fracked and cemented in Wyoming. Fracking doesn't hurt Gaia or her water table. Most of my experience is Mid-continent and Permian Basin; I haven't worked offshore. I hold stock in BP and CVX. I plan to cover LNG and CNG, pipelines, refineries, and exploration & production. I inherited mineral rights and Linn, Apache, Anadarko, Comanche, and Chesapeake currently send me little royalty checks. These are fun to get and tend to focus my attention on SA energy articles.
