With Germany out yesterday professing its support for a gradual EU ban on Russian oil, the stage is set for another supply-driven rally in the price of oil and gas around the world. Over the longer-term, the backdrop for the oil market continues to be defined by the prospect of shortages even without the war […]

What’s the Next Big Thing in the Oil Space? (SBOW, PQEFF, MTDR, FANG, HP, SM, HAL, SLB)

The energy space is the unambiguous market leading group so far in 2022. And there’s plenty of data out there to suggest that isn’t likely to change very soon. One of the key points helping to drive this idea home is information from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which puts out a weekly report […]

The Oil Boom Hits a New Gear, and These Stocks are Moving (SBOW, VKIN, MTDR, FANG, HP, SM, OIH)

The most important story right now for markets isn’t Russia’s quagmire in Ukraine. It isn’t the Fed battling inflation. It isn’t the nightmarish slide in growth tech stocks. Those are all important pieces of the puzzle. But the centerpiece has become about the price of oil. The price for WTI Crude Oil has spiked as […]

Top Energy Stock Opportunities as Oil Booms Higher (PXD, CEI, MTDR, FANG, HP, HES, OIH, XOP)

The Oil market has been exploding higher since it found support in its crash following the emergence of the Omicron Covid-19 variant on Thanksgiving weekend.

Pandemic End in Sight Small Cap Oil Stocks Poised for Success? (PDCE, CEI, HP, MTDR, CPE, PBF, XOP, VKIN)

The Crude Oil market has taken flight over the past five days, powering over 15% higher in that time in a move fueled by optimism around the big-picture consequences of the Omicron variant. According to a recent South African study, infection with the recently emerged aggressively contagious but less severe variant appears to confer immunity […]

Oil Stocks Set to Reap Huge Benefits from Undersupply Regime (PXD, CEI, MTDR, FANG, HP, HES, OIH, XOP)

With the beginning of a coordinated campaign of strategic petroleum reserve releases and the threat posed by the new Omicron variant of Covid-19, traders have piled into oil shorts on the expectation of a pick-up in supply and a hit to demand. However, the cyclical fundamental problem of a lack of incentive for new oil […]

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 […]

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. But it represents an important blind spot during a commodity-led bull market. And that’s clearly what we have in place right now. Commodity markets are up, in […]

Are we Sailing into a Perfect Storm for Energy Stocks? (PDCE, VKIN, HP, MTDR, CPE, PBF, CEI, XOP)

As if oil didn’t have enough on its mind: Now, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that key energy sector investors are saying they see Crude prices getting squeezed still higher due to market spillover dynamics from the extraordinarily tight natural gas complex. This could represent a critical opportunity for active market participants. According to […]

How to Capitalize on the Next Leg of the Oil Bull Market (CEI, PXD, MTDR, FANG, HP, HES, OIH, XOP, VKIN)

Bank of America recently came out with a reaffirmation of their call for $100 Crude Oil. This projection is hardly a shocking outlier. We have seen analysts go all the way up to $150 oil on the way – which would be a new all-time high in nominal terms. But what’s driving these lofty estimates? […]

Delta Scare Offers Fresh Look at Small-Cap Energy Stars (VKIN, SBOW, MTDR, CEI, FANG, SM, HP)

The recent pullback in oil and gas prices appears to be related to fears that the Delta variant of Covid-19 will result in further lockdowns and travel restrictions that could pose catastrophic risks for energy players, as they did in April of last year. We see this dynamic often in markets – investors are susceptible […]

Why this Oil Pullback Could be a Critical Opportunity (SBOW, MTDR, CEI, FANG, HP, SM, VKIN, OIH)

Crude Oil has been running higher for most the past year, advancing as much as 120% during the trailing twelve-month period. The story has been clear: demand is taking off, but production capacity has been barren of new investment for the past 18 months and US shale players refuse to ramp up production despite the […]

Why the Recent Oil Pullback is an Opportunity (CEI, VKIN, FANG, XEC, PDCE, CPE, HP, PBF, MTDR)

The Oil market continues to lead all asset classes in 2021. The recent pullback in oil is – one can make a good case – likely attributable to cash-raising activities by US producers, who still have some bumps and bruises on the balance sheet from last year’s crash in oil. They can suddenly sell in-ground […]

All Eyes on Oil Stocks as Shortage Fears Grow (MTDR, AGYP, FANG)

The oil market is likely going to become a big deal in 2021 because 2020 featured such brutal action, at one point taking the price of WTI Crude down to negative $40/barrel – an all-time low. That crash was precipitated by lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic health crisis, specifically in March thru May. More […]
