One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Black Stone Minerals, L.P. BSM. This is because this security in the Energy and Pipeline - Master Limited Partnerships space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Energy and Pipeline - Master Limited Partnerships space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 31 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

Meanwhile, Black Stone is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.

In fact, over the past month, current quarter estimates have risen from 18 cents per share to 22 cents per share, while current year estimates have risen from 37 cents per share to 39 cents per share.  This has helped BSM to earn a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), further underscoring the company’s solid position.
