Independent Stock Ideas
Recommendations of stocks for a diversified energy portfolio. New recommendations and changes in recommendations sent to clients first and posted here after a delay.

Meter Reader
A weekly analysis of energy stocks using the McDep Ratio (Market cap and Debt to present value of energy businesses). Buy/Sell recommendations listed in valuation tables.  Rank by McDep Ratio updated in each edition. 

Beginning in 2015 Meter Reader will become a monthly analysis.



Real Time Research Offer

New clients may receive real-time email of McDep Research through March 2015 for a single payment of $500.  The first quarter of 2015 will likely be a transition quarter as we refresh our analysis (see below).  Expect to see three editions of Meter Reader on its new monthly schedule and at least a half dozen Stock Ideas, which would be self-standing analyses of single stocks.  After the first quarter we expect to restore fees to higher levels. 

McDep to Refresh in 2015

We are planning a change in research format in 2015 to free up time to sharpen our mental and physical skills for creating money-making ideas.  We may take mini-sabbaticals, but definitely not retirement.  

Initially, for the first quarter, we plan to send 2015 analyses in real time to active clients from 2014 on a complimentary basis.  Analyses will also be archived on after a three week delay, as has been the case historically. We may find a new business model to meet client needs for real-time research for mutual reward.  


Analyses are prepared from sources and data believed to be reliable, but no representation is made as to their accuracy or completeness.
