Exxon Inferior to Pipelines in Energy Investing
By Mike Lee and Bradley Olson - Apr 18, 2012 1:00 AM AT

Pipeline companies offer the best returns in energy for investors seeking to cash in on the U.S. shale boom while avoiding the volatility of a commodity market that’s seen natural-gas prices reach a 10-year-low and crude bounce above $100 a barrel.
The BLOOMBERG RISKLESS RETURN RANKING shows pipeline companies over the past five years have provided triple the risk-adjusted return of companies that produce and refine oil and gas, such as Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), the next best group. Enbridge (ENB) Inc. of Canada leads companies on the Bloomberg World Pipelines Index, which returned 2.9 percent when adjusted for price swings. Producers focused on finding and extracting oil and gas gained 0.5 percent.
