There’s an old saying that goes something like this: “In the valley of the blind, the ‘one-eyed man’ is king.”
If you seriously consider what I’m about to show you, this old saying could well ring true for your investment portfolio at the end of this year. Perhaps even before. Let me explain…
At roughly $2.41 per million Btu, U.S. natural gas prices are in the dumpster. The truth is, they’ve been declining for years. But the recent shale gas boom accelerated their fall. Now they’re the lowest they’ve been in over a decade.
If it gets any cheaper, the companies that supply it will be paying you to take it. You see, they have a huge problem.
They have to keep producing in order to generate revenue, even in the face of declining prices. The problem here in the United States is that supply exceeds demand by a wide margin. And it’s getting wider all the time.
Why? Stores of natural gas at record levels… A mild winter… New wells coming online every month…
No wonder it’s eviscerating shares of explorers and producers. Take a look at the six-month chart for Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK), for instance.
It looks like the first big drop on a roller-coaster. Shares are off 38% since last July.
