NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --- Anadarko Petroleum (APC), Golar LNG (GLNG), Teekay LNG Partners (TGP), DryShips (DRYS), DHT Holdings (DHT) and Cheniere Energy (LNG) are LNG-related stocks that could outperform broader indices.
Goldman Sachs has almost doubled its liquefied natural gas (LNG) demand growth forecast on the back of higher consumption by Japan and northwest Europe. The investment bank expects global LNG demand to rise by an average 2.9 billion cubic feet a day this year, up from the earlier forecast of 1.5 bcf, outweighing future supply increases.
Strong demand and concerns over nuclear energy could be drivers for natural gas as the IEA forecasts natural gas prices to average $5.5 per million Btu in Europe and $11.5 per million Btu in Japan.
These six stocks have mean buy ratings of 60% with an upside potential of up to 86%, based on analysts' average 12-month price targets.
