Profits from the extreme movements of oil and gas
The markets for oil and gas are characterized by one of the highest volatility of all assets. Thus there are rich opportunities to profit. Permanent income by way of buying oil and gas in the ground and selling it in the futures markets (hedging) is one way of achieving high yields in combination with the charme of real assets. Owning a royalty on oil and gas properties is very close to being the landlord of real estate assets but has another return profile as such assets decay in value over time as the oil and gas is pumped out.
