The energy storage boom stands to be one of the defining explosive trends of the next decade. And it is clearly still in its early innings.

Oil Stocks Ripe for Santa Claus Rally as Market Looks Past Omicron (COP, CEI, OXY, SLB, XOM, SM, OIH, XLE)

The Oil market has rebounded 8% from its lows recorded Monday mid-morning after reports of the Omicron variant exploding in major developed markets hit the wires.

The Oil Space Could be Poised to Boom After SPR Headlines Fail to Hit the Mark (SBOW, CEI, MTDR, PBF, CPE, HP, SM, XLE)

Earlier this week, the Biden administration leaked through sources that it has put together a coalition of large oil-consuming nations willing to undertake a coordinated release of oil from strategic reserves.  It’s a landmark event given that the US has never before undertaken a Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) release outside of an immediate geopolitical or […]

As Inflation Spikes Squeeze Candidates Remain in the Commodity Space (BTU, CEI, CHK, FCX, PAAS, TECK)

“Team Transitory” at the Fed is coming under increasing pressure.

Finding the Last Squeeze-able Stocks in the Commodity Space (BTU, CEI, CHK, FCX, PAAS, TECK, WY)

The commodity space is the clear winner in 2021. This is especially true if you count Bitcoin as a commodity.

Is the Oil Bull Ready to Start Squeezing? (VKIN, PXD, MTDR, FANG, HP, HES, OIH, XOP, CEI)

China issued a decree earlier this week to its power companies: start stockpiling coal.  Many investors in the stock market don’t understand commodity markets fully, which is understandable.
