The United States in increasing its role in the energy industry at a surprising rate. Natural gas exploration, fracking and oil exports are filling the airwaves. However, not all companies with a focus in energy are created equal.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. And this week, I’ve got seven energy equipment stocks that aren’t making the cut.

Here they are, in alphabetical order. Each one of these stocks gets a “D” or “F” according to my research, meaning it is a “sell” or “strong sell.”
