5 'Strong Buy' Natural Gas Dividend Stocks to Buy as Spot Prices Soar

Unless you have been asleep for the past year, you have seen the incredible price increases in energy commodities. Oil is at the highest level since 2014, while natural gas has surged to its highest levels in more than 13 years. Though reasons for the massive and spiraling surge in prices are many, from government regulations and policy changes to the conflict in Ukraine, one thing is for sure. Demand for both oil and gas products will continue to soar, especially if supply from Russia is embargoed.

We decided to screen our 24/7 Wall St. energy research database looking for companies that were heavily weighted to natural gas, and we found five large-cap stocks that are ideal for growth stock investors looking to capitalize on the solid pricing and demand environment.

It is important to remember that no single analyst report should be used as a sole basis for any buying or selling decision.
