The only book focused on investing within the energy, communications, and water industries, Power Hungry offers a comprehensive look at the considerable opportunities arising from these industries. Along with providing one-of-a-kind investment strategies for investing in utilities and other essential services, Power Hungry provides a framework for readers to construct their own model portfolio of stocks, commission-free, so they can reap the rewards of a field with enormous profit potential. Established companies may no longer hold the lion's share of the marketplace, but this book corners the market on investing in these profitable industries.
