Oil stocks were crushed in recent days. There is a small “hope rally” going on. I am taking that opportunity to clean out the last of my oil stocks and move onto greener sustainable investing pastures.
Oil and oil stocks are crashing as Russia and Saudi Arabia squabble. Russia’s motivation is clearly retaliation against U.S. shale over recent sanctions on Russia. Investors should not expect a quick or deep recovery for most oil stocks. Oil on the other hand holds some promise. Access with membership or a Free Library Card.

Coronavirus is causing severe human suffering. The equity markets are also suffering. However, valuations were looking for a reason to correct. The stock market can easily drop another 25-35%. Use this correction to move away from “old economy” disrupted investments and move towards “smart everything” and alternative energy world investments.

In our annual forecast we suggested an early year correction driven by a volatility event. On Twitter in early January, I posted that coronavirus was the most important story developing. It is now threatening the stock market and global economy. Here’s a simple way to think about volatility now.

We have now moved past the “beginning of the end” of the oil age. While there might be one more cyclical bull market in store, the 2020s will mark a profound shift in energy usage. The advent of EVs is upon us and petrochemicals will fail to grow as projected due to better technology driven options. You need an exit strategy from oil and gas stocks.
The repo market is in disarray and Fed bailing is now approaching a half trillion dollars. Is this QE or a bailout? I suspect it’s a stealth hedge fund bailout. A big one.
This piece is available to anybody with a subscription or a FREE Library Card. Find out how we are trading the first half of 2020 and what might develop. Hint, we expect volatility to increase in 2020 and the year to potentially be a lot like 2018 ending in a crash.
