Companies in the oil storage business can take advantage of what is known as contango, which is when forward prices are higher than current prices, allowing the purchase of cheap oil to be stored and sold at a later date while securing income using derivatives. Five companies that appear to be in a good position to take advantage of reduced oil storage capacity are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP), Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EDP), Spectra Energy Partners (NYSE: SEP), Buckeye Partners (NYSE: BPL) and EQT Midstream Partners (NYSE: EQM).

Beazer Homes USA (BZH), the diversified home-builder which is held by Mario Gabelli from GAMCO Investors, is my top play among single-family and multi-family home builders. While I believe higher interest rates should slow the pace of margin expansion for Beazer, I also believe higher top line growth will more than compensate interest rate effects on net earnings. As a matter of fact, I think gross margins are going to go north of 17.5% by the end of 2014 while top-line should keep on growing at a rate of 25%.
