Though the Dow is making headlines by soaring to record highs, there are still deals to be found even in this investing climate. In the following video, Fool energy analyst Joel South gives investors a few of his picks for cheap stocks investors can pick up today to get exposure to the energy boom. With natural gas prices having reached painfully low levels in the last few months, several players in both coal and natural gas have been beaten down recently. Joel tells us who he likes in these spaces that are poised for a rebound now that natural gas prices are on the rise.

The coal industry in the United States has been in a state of flux since the arrival of a cheaper alternative for energy production: natural gas.

For investors looking to capitalize on a rebound in the U.S. coal market, The Motley Fool has authored a special new premium report detailing exactly why Peabody Energy is perhaps most worthy of your consideration.
