The world is scrambling to manage the process of transitioning away from fossil fuels over the coming decade. We know that’s where we’re headed. But there’s no way to just cut it off “cold turkey”.

How the Oil Spike Could Spur a Stampede into Alternative Energy Solutions (CCJ, VKIN, NEE, ENPH, FSLR, RUN, GE, ETN, TAN, URA)

The Commodity Stock Dip Shopping List (X, VKIN, CLF, FCX, CCJ, ADM, BHP, AA)

Inflation. War. Skyrocketing commodity prices. That’s the current context for investors looking to navigate the world right now. Crude oil has doubled since November.

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.

The electric grid is probably the most important piece of infrastructure we have.

Every piece of that puzzle is critical to maintaining daily life – powering how every […]

Why it may be Time to Buy the Dip in Sustainability Stocks (NEE, VKIN, STEM, QS, BE, FSLR, FAN, TAN, CEI)

The sustainability movement is likely to be the most important investment theme over the next ten years.

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.

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.

Commodity Stocks in Generational Bull Trend (X, CEI, CLF, CCJ, ADM, BHP, AA, VKIN)

Guess what happens when you print trillions of dollars and then run into underinvestment and logistical problems upon reopening a fast-growing global economy? You get commodity price inflation.

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