Since the Energy Select Sector SPDR FUN XLE is down roughly 16% over the past month, it may be a good time to shop around for oversold equities in the oil and gas sector. Although investors are concerned about a recession slowing down the economy, natural gas prices are still at record highs.
The Natural Gas October 22 futures are hovering around $6.796 per thousand cubic feet (MCF). If there is a cold winter, especially in Europe, the global supply of natural gas will be in a worse crunch than now, as Russia has stopped the inflows of oil and gas to European countries.
Here are two high-yielding stocks that could benefit if there is a further supply crunch in natural gas.
