“The Second Coming… Documented Miracle Happening in 32 States”

What is Dr. Kent Moors Pitching for his Energy Advantage Newsletter

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, June 19, 2014

I’m going to keep this one very brief today … spent most of the day in a dentist’s chair, but I couldn’t resist this ad from Dr. Kent Moors pitching his Energy Advantage newsletter.

So there’s a hint for you: If you want to get my attention, reference your investing idea as “the second coming.” I’m not a religious person, and I know that whenever financial marketers mention God or Jesus they’re probably trying to take advantage of people who are, but “Second Coming” perks up my ears.

You can click here for the full Energy Advantage pitch if you like, but the short version is:

Lots of shale oil and gas in the US.

It’s changing our economy dramatically and permanently.

And lots of people are going to get rich. (Primarily those who are working the fields or who owned that previously low-value land, of course, but presumably there’s enough for investors like you and I to get filthy rich, too.)

So, yes, nothing we haven’t seen before. Newsletters have been talking up the shale revolution for nearly a decade now, and there is certainly still a lot of cash chasing the oil in boom towns across the country, from the Eagle Ford to the Bakken, and from the Monterey Shale (though folks have been downplaying that one lately) to the Marcellus.

I don’t have any big picture stuff to add about shale oil and gas — they’re real, there’s real fighting about fracking in some areas, and no I don’t know when that production will peak or how the cost curve will change in the years to come.

So we’ll just move on to sniff out some teased picks from Moors — here are some clues:

“New Breed Opportunity No. 1:

“The “Ultimate Underdog”

“This tiny $360 million company could be the biggest beneficiary of America’s Second Coming…

“They are responsible for shipping crude oil to countries throughout the world via large vessels…

“And their management just made a brilliant move, entering into an exclusive deal that will grow this tiny company’s fleet from 5 to 39 vessels…

“In other words, this business has just expanded its operating capacity by 875%…
The thing is…

“99% of the investing public HATES this stock…

“But once they see what’s really going on here, the ‘sky is the limit.'”

So who is this? Well, as of a few months ago, if we assume that Moors might be referencing a pick he made earlier this year, you would have had to say it was Knightsbridge Tankers (VLCCF), which used to be an oil tanker company but is now a dry bulk tanker company (they sold their very large crude carriers, VLCCs, in 2012 and 2013).

And they did make a transformative deal to combine the company with the dry bulk tankers and newbuilding orders of Frontline (FRO), which would indeed increase the size of their Capesize bulk tanker fleet from 5 vessels to 39. That deal is expected to close starting in September, from what I’ve read, and VLCCF did have a market cap in the neighborhood of $360 million a few months ago before this deal was announced.

So perhaps this is the company Moors is talking about, though it would be odd if that’s the case — Capesize bulkers don’t carry any energy products other than coal, they primarily carry stuff like iron ore, wheat and other dry commodities and they have nothing to do with increased energy production in the US in any direct way.

Which is probably a good thing, frankly — unless you’re quite contrarian you won’t be interested in oil tanker stocks. LNG tankers have a long-term tailwind, since more LNG projects are being developed in the coming years, and dry bulk tankers have had a bit of a rebound this year, but crude oil tankers are still in the doldrums. And since most shipowners are heavily levered, with lots of debt, most tanker owners are losing money at current rates.

But… I can’t find an oil tanker company that has dramatically transformed itself in going from 5 to 39 vessels, so VLCCF will have to be our best guess on this quickie. If you’ve an alternate solution, feel free to shout it out with a comment below.

“New Breed Opportunity No. 2: 400% on the Marcellus

“The Marcellus basin is one of the largest, most productive oil and gas fields in America.

“In 2013, the basin reportedly produced 12 billion cubic feet of gas a day – equivalent to about 2 million barrels of oil a day and more than 6x the 2009 production rate.

“To date, there are more than 90 companies operating in this basin…

“But of all these companies, one in particular has access to over 50,000 acres of land and plans on drilling another 240 wells…

“In December 2013, this company produced 180 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

“That’s more than QUADRUPLE the 40 million cubic feet of natural gas they were producing on a daily basis in early 2012.

“With this company’s revenues on track to increase by 400%… this stock has tremendous potential to make you rich this year.”

This one, sez the Mighty Thinkolator, is Enerplus Resources (ERF), one of the survivors of the destruction of the Canadian oil trusts several years ago — they are no longer simply a yield-focused investment, they’ve morphed themselves over the years into an effective operating company and have gradually expanded into the US in a meaningful way in both the Marcellus and the Bakken. The stock does still carry a decent dividend in their neighborhood of 4%, but the dividend has been falling, not growing, in recent years.

You can see ERF’s explanation of their Marcellus position here, which matches the clues from Dr. Moors perfectly, and if you’d like some other recent commentary about ERF there was a Fool article here extolling its virtues, and there’s a pretty good Seeking Alpha article here that argues the stock is 25% undervalued.

And that’s all I’ve got time for today — we’ll get to the other hinted-at stocks in the future, and if you’ve an opinion on Enerplus or on Knightsbridge (or a better solution for the Knightsbridge clues), well, I’m all ears, just use the friendly little comment box below.

Now that I’m older, “Second Coming” ads don’t get me as excited as they once did. Why? Because it says in the Bible that no one except the Father knows the time of Jesus’ return. So for a copywriter to hint that he somehow knows this fact, well, that’s just plain lunacy.

Cool info site here. I subscribed to Moors – MMP Energy Adv – he has as many losers as winners. You might be OK, if you can buy all his recos. For something REAL – I have followed for many years, and should change the energy industry – a developing company has new Technology to generate low cost, clean power from the renewable resources (sun, biomass, wind, waves) and with a recently announced electric circuit / device (with prototype / proof, credible 3rd party verification) that can make possible electric cars at lower cost to own and power than what… Read more »

Good (well more like plenty ahead for investors) grief. If you know an electrical engineer that you trust, ask them what they think of capacitors as an ‘energy source’…

Yes, indeed. I am an electrical engineer with 22 years with IBM Canada plus 10 years in Washington State, USA for several smaller companies. Indeed capacitors need to be charged in order to have and hold energy. They are what we call passive elements. They are not able to power anything in the sense RT implied. The closest I can think of is an application where they use a cap charged and to hold the charge, then disconnect the power from the device (let’s say changing or altering another component or battery, as in the case for some TV remote… Read more »

He’s obviously not making any real biblical reference. He probably could have used some other words to describe the same thing. I don’t think that he really understands about the second coming of Christ. He has probably heard that term and is using it for impact. I’m sorry to say, but you are the one that is overreacting to this silly notion.

I have my doubts about your guess of Knightsbridge as Moor’s number 1 recommendation. He clearly states that this company is responsible for delivering oil to many countries, which as you pointed out, seems hardly a fit for a bulk carrier.

ERF is a good stock but Dr. Moors may be a little late to this party. It is up 100% in the last couple of years, not including dividends. It may still have some upside. My advice is to stay far away from Dr. Moors and anything to do with Money Map Press, been there, done that.

I just finished the novel, “The Shipping Man,” by Matthew McCleery, which was recently reviewed in Businessweek. The author definitely shouldn’t give up his day job (in marine finance, natch), but he does a credible job incorporating some sophisticated financial concepts, and a taste of the shipping industry environment and characters, with his narrative story line.

How about Nordic American Tankers? Their February press release says that “following recent acquisitions, 33 tankers are owned” They operate more however. I didn’t get a market cap. Also, they are set up to carry specialized cargoes rather than LPG, which requires ships that can handle the pressure.

Does anyone know how people did with their investment in a deal about 6 mos. where you had to invest something like 25 to 35,000 dollars and it had to be in by a certain date. He certainly has a good copyright editor who really peaks your interest.
It seems like the people on Gumshoe are not to thrilled with his picks.

You always have to stop and think………….if these guys picks are so great, why do they bother trying to hook people into buying a newsletter…………they could just buy the stocks they tout themselves and make the kizillions. Their answer would be that they’re just trying to help other people become wealthy……………right!

I respect Dr. Kent Moors for his expertise, his connections within the industry and therefore, his stock recommendations. No one can tell you to invest in a stock and then wave a magic wand and voila, the stock price goes up immediately. We are being given his best guesses only. However, Dr. Moors best guesses are about a 1000x better than my best guesses. 94% of the picks in his portfolio have made money. A lot of the stocks that he recommends are long term investments for people who have the money and the time to wait around for those… Read more »

I paid Kent Moors for his Energy Advantage advisory $199.99 for one year. Where did you get the $49.00? If this is the case I cancel, get my $199.99 back and buy his $49.99 advisory. Please advise.

Though I had read hundreds of pages of detailed reports by Dr. Moors and his team (even so I found I had read only 10% of the over five hundred sixty emails I had received from Dr. Moors & Money Morning!) , after not investing in even one of his stock recommendations, I cancelled and was promptly refunded $599.00. That is integrity. There is a ton of content behind his labor though there is always something more to sell. Last week between five weekly publications of MoneyMap I gathered 33 specific detailed energy and technology stock recommendations to follow; 80%… Read more »

Hi JD. Moors and his team have integrity when it comes to refunding your money for any reason right up to the last day of the three month trial period. You will learn a ton and could very well make some good money on his recommendations. Use your intuition and get all the advise from successful investors you can. Note that everyone has an opinion and the pessimists rarely see the promise behind the storm. Many signals do make this to be a very risky time to learn the ropes of investing in stock market.

If he is making all of this money with these investments,why is he sharing this information with others for $49.50 ? I find it suspicious that he doesn’t say why he is doing this. He obviously has some kind of an angle that he is not telling us about.
