7investing lead advisor Maxx Chatsko's Top Stock for December is leading the energy transition, today and tomorrow.
December 1, 2020
The energy transition is upon us.
Since 2005, the United States power sector has seen both the fastest decline (coal) and fastest adoption (wind and solar) of any power source since the nation was founded. A similar, forecast-shredding trend will be observed this decade as transportation ditches liquid fuels for electricity. Therefore, every portfolio should own an electric utility in the 2020s, although they aren’t created equal.
7investing Lead Advisor Maxx Chatsko’s recommendation for December 2020 is well-positioned — thanks to a combination of geography, financial discipline, and excellent management — to capture opportunities in renewable energy, electric vehicles, and next-generation power sources while thumping the total return of the S&P 500.

My top stock to buy in December is an electric utility with significant geographic advantages serving as a tailwind through the ongoing energy transition.

The electric utility industry is typically synonymous with words like “boring” and “monolithic”, but that’s not the case here. This business is well-positioned to respond to and capture some of the biggest opportunities in energy in the next decade or two, including renewable energy, electric vehicles, batteries and energy storage, and even next-generation power sources including enhanced geothermal systems and advanced nuclear.
