Whose Balance Sheet Could Use Some Work in the Energy Sector?

In the following video, Motley Fool energy analyst Taylor Muckerman takes a close look at the balance sheet at FMC Technologies (NYS: FTI) . He discusses some of the reasons that the company has had to take on some debt recently to pay for capital expenditures, and why that means it can't pay a dividend at the moment, unlike some of its peers which do pay modest dividends. He also discusses how growth for this company could mean a dividend in the future.

FMC Technologies has underperformed the market since being recommended by Rule Breakers, but that doesn't mean it isn't poised to capitalize on a growing trend.
