Natural Gas Stocks - Any?

Discussion in 'Commodity Futures' started by jackpearson, Jul 29, 2006.

  1. What's the purest way to play moves in natural gas thru the stock market? I see there are no ETF's like with oil, gold, or silver.

    If you trade futures, you can trade the electronic Natural Gas contracts. However, the emini is sized at a $5000 multiplier (quite a large daily VAR).

    Otherwise, Barron's reviewed a stock with a high correlation to NG price ... ticker:

  3. danoXP


    PDC vs. NG
  4. stock symbol NGS
  5. qg's (nymex mini for gas) multiplier is $2500 per $1 movement, by the way.

    Some more diversified picks are DVN and APA. They are heavy nat gas stocks with great earnings numbers.

    hgt, pvx are heavy on NG IIRC
  7. CXG is another name
  8. danoXP


    ... oopps my bad (not $5000 per $1)
  9. CNX --Consol Energy Inc.

    Not to be confused with CXG-- CNX Gas Corp. as mentioned above.


    Bob Lawbla, Esquire. So on and so forth

  10. Natural gas royalty trusts. SJT, HGT for example.
    Will be more of a pure NG play than buying an operating company.
