Many previous articles have reported on the value of having “Big Oil” stocks such as Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A) in every portfolio. The dividend income is robust. All are positioned well to gain from global growth. There is much to be said for all that publicly traded companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, and other “Big Oil” stocks can add to the portfolio of an investor.
The same is true for small cap oil and natural gas entities such as Octagon 88 (OTC: OCTX) and Americas Petrogas (OTC: APEOF).
Growth comes at much less risk for energy concerns like Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas. A recent article in The Wall Street Journal detailed how Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, and other major firms were spending massive amounts to discover new fields of oil natural gas with little profit for the efforts and the expenses. That is not the case with Americas Petrogas or Octagon 88, as each has valuable holdings.
The potential for both Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas is very bullish as a result.
Growth also moves smaller entities more. That is simply a factor of the size. Big gains will come to the share prices of Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas from developments that would not even put a dent in the share price of Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron. That results in more profits for the shareholders of Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas.
Both Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell are excellent companies, with a role in every portfolio.
The same is true for Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas. Companies of this size bring the growth and value features all investors should seek in oil and natural gas companies. Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron are tough to beat as dividend stocks. As an income stock, both Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell have above average dividend yields. But for big growth, investors should look to small cap energy stocks like Octagon 88 and Americas Petrogas.
