10 Best Stocks of 2014: Emerge Energy Services LP (EMES)
Investor: Jon Markman
Jon Markman is a contest veteran, but he had a bit of a down year in 2013. Markman’s emerging markets bet of Femsa (FMX) fell flat, with FMX stock sitting in the red year-to-date.
But the optimist would say that means there’s more chance for things to go better for Markman in the 10 Best Stocks for 2014 contest.
Now, he just has to hope his thesis on Emerge Energy Services LP (EMES) — a $930 million oil and gas services company headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas — holds true.
Markman chose EMES stock for his 10 Best Stocks for 2014 entry because the company processes both fuel and sand. The sand segment could provide big-time growth for EMES stock, as sand is a key material for fracking — a process that has led to our nation’s recent natural gas boom. Meanwhile, the larger fuel segment provides a strong foundation.
The cherry on top? Emerge Energy Services is a master limited partnership … one that currently yields over 8%. That delicious yield for EMES stock will be included in the total returns for the 10 Best Stocks for 2014 contest, and could just be the boost needed to send Emerge Energy to the top spot by the end of the year.
