10 Best Stocks for 2014: #1, Emerge Energy Services LP (EMES)

emerge-energy-services-emesInvestor: Jon Markman
YTD Return: +41%

Jon Markman, editor of Trader’s Advantage, has staked out a claim in Emerge Energy Services LP (EMES) that has paid off big time.

EMES, which mines specialized sand that is used in oil shale fracking, is an independent oil and gas services company with a very unique business model. And thanks to the fracking boom across America, it’s also a very profitable business model, too.

The firm announced its 2013 earnings results a few weeks ago, completing its first full year as a public company, and giving investors even more optimism for the future. Both of EMES’ two operating divisions have exhibited spectacular growth this past year, and despite double digit (even triple digit growth the sand production segment), neither can fully keep up with customer demand.

No wonder shares are up 41% year-to-date to lead the Best Stocks contest.

“Emerge Energy Services remains an unconventional way to to take advantage of the growth in the explosive shale formation fracturing process, so don’t miss out,” Markman wrote recently in an update on the stock.
