Good day, folks! My name is Cody Winters, and I am the Founder and President of Southlake Resources Group, a firm that specializes in oil and gas investments. Investing in stock commodities like oil and gas can give you an excellent source of passive income, provided that you partnered with a capable operator whose yields are stable and steady.
Today I’d like to share my personal thoughts on oil and gas investments, from the perspective of an investor and not as an investment advisor.
Naturally, as a potential investor, you may have tons of questions about the possibilities that the energy sector has regarding income-earning opportunities. From an investor’s point of view, what are the things that I would initially do to make sure that my hard-earned cash will yield profits?
For investors who are not quite well-versed about the industry, the first course of action would be to find someone who knows the industry inside-out. And I don’t mean the usual dinner table conversations among friends and family (unless someone in that group is an actual professional investment and industry guru) that center around speculations based on minimal knowledge of these things. A smart investor would need someone who has been around and has had considerable success in his or her oil or gas investments.
Since there are various forms of investments, the decision should be made based on which one can fulfill long-term profit goals. A thorough discussion with a investment advisor about the following forms of investments should be able to help one decide; Mutual Funds or ETFs, Large Cap Stocks or ADRs, Future Contracts, and Small or Micro-cap Stock and Limited Partnerships.
Lastly, what exact oil and gas activity should one focus on? An experienced investment advisor should be able to provide information about the following investment activities: Exploration, Developing, Income, Services and Support.
If you ask me, Cody Winters, I’d have to say that if and when you do decide to invest in oil or gas or both, all of the above components should be thoroughly discussed with your investment advisor. From your discussions alone, you should be able to tell if the investment expert you are talking to is actually an expert in every sense of the word—at least in the field on which he or she claims authority.
I do not mean to dissuade you from pursuing your investment goals. As a matter of fact, I’m all for investing in oil and gas as there is always a demand for both wherever you are in the world. When the demand is ever present, you can be certain that you’ve put your money in the right type of investment.
But as with any investment, there are always risks involved. I would advise you to talk to your investment advisor about managing risks, increasing profit potential, and minimizing the chances of losses.
If you have questions for me, Cody Winters, I encourage you to let me know at your convenience. You may reach me directly through this page.
