Energy, oil and speculation 2018/2019

By lottifab, October 7, 2018

I notice in Travis real money portfolio there is not much weight on energy related stocks, and corresponding speculation (ie. call).

I wonder
– if my statement is correct or just an impression, and what are readers thoughts.
– what is the main reason of that, if there is any.
– and last, if Travis /readers could share some ideas /suggestions on this speculative topic, particularly now that momentum is taking on and lots are riding this trend.

Thanks all.

I honestly don’t know if this will drive up the price of oil, or reduce it? I also read Venezuela’s in trouble economically and are big oil exporters. Will this… Read more »

The Trumps seem to be pretty closely connected to the Saudi ruling family, not so different than the Bushes in that regard (though it’s a less “friendly” arm of the Saudi family now in power, perhaps). President Trump has spoken about the necessity of selling more arms to Saudi Arabia for economic reasons, and has talked some in other relationships about wanting other longtime allies to take up the cost of defense… but it’s quite hard to discern what’s negotiating talk and what’s a likely trend. The demise of the petrodollar is a gradual thing, I expect, and will probably… Read more »
