Summary:
Energy contributor Dan Dicker talks with Action Alerts Plus co-portfolio manager Stephanie Link about Obama’s EPA proposal to cut power plant emissions by 30% by 2030. While the final execution of the bill is still years away, the proposal applies more pressure to the coal mining industry, and continues his commitment to unilateral action on climate change. The bill will also help speed the resurgence of natural gas prices and natural gas stocks. Dicker likes Southwestern Energy (SWN), as does Link, who also mentions Fluor (FLR) as a possible play.

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

TheStreet (May 14, 2014) — While threats by Russia's Gazprom -- a majority state-controlled natural gas extractor -- to cut gas deliveries to Ukraine rise, American investors should know such action won't hurt prices in the United States. GFI Group senior energy derivative trader Elliot Warren tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that traders aren't worried about U.S. prices because we can't export natural gas abroad and we can't make up for a European supply problem. Warren, speaking about the recent trade in natural gas, says prices have dipped back down to $4 after spiking during the winter. Warren says natural gas inventories will build during the summer, which will suppress price increases. Video provided by TheStreet

Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

Gas Natural Sale Sidelined Until CEO Lawsuit Resolved

TheStreet (July 11, 2014) — Gas Natural, the Ohio-based company mired in scandal, was recently talking to prospective buyers about a sale, but talks came to a screeching halt when former CEO Richard Osborne filed a lawsuit against the company. The scandal started back in November when Ohio regulators ordered an investigation into Gas Natural. In May, the company announced that Osborne would be retiring and his son would take the reins. Late last month, Osborne Senior struck back, filing a lawsuit against the company. The suit has forced Gas Natural to put the sale on the back burner, but sources say that as soon as the matter is settled, the company will once again be on the prowl for a buyer. Even with the controversy surrounding the company, there will be no shortage of buyers as there is an intense level of interest in the gas local distribution space. Similar companies that have recently traded hands have fetched rich ebitda multiples of 10.5 times. With about $20 million in ebitda last year, Gas Natural could easily fetch north of $200 million in a sale. Video provided by TheStreet

Gasoline Price Outlook: Good For Refiners, Bad For Drivers

Gasoline Price Outlook: Good For Refiners, Bad For Drivers

TheStreet (Apr. 30, 2014) — Energy expert Dan Dicker talks with TheStreet's Jim Cramer about his outlook for gasoline prices this summer and for the refiners that produce it. Continued strong global gas prices are being met with relatively weak domestic crude prices. Dicker explains why this is good for the refiners, but bad for U.S. drivers. Add that to a tough winter and gas stations that are changing their model for selling gas, and you’ve got a bad summer in store for driving. Video provided by TheStreet

Why the Keystone XL Pipeline Is Dead and Why It Doesn't Matter

Why the Keystone XL Pipeline Is Dead and Why It Doesn't Matter

TheStreet (May 14, 2014) — Another energy bill died on the Senate floor on Tuesday courtesy of more partisan bickering on the Keystone XL Pipeline, Senior Energy Contributor Dan Dicker tells TheStreet's Jim Cramer. Dicker also points out that President Obama doesn't want to be challenged on the pipeline ahead of midterm elections. But at this point, Dicker says it may not make a difference because Canadian oil companies and the Canadian government are losing patience with the United States and TransCanada has proposed an entirely different pipeline that routes crude oil to the East, which would make the proposed Keystone extension unnecessary.
