Maybe it was watching The Big Short where everyone thought a group of canny investors were crazy when they said the housing market (and many of the securities based on mortgages) was going to tank. Maybe it’s my skeptical nature. Maybe it’s Saudi Arabia manipulating the energy market to punish Iran. But, whatever the reason, I went out and bought more oil stocks. Yes, it seems like lunacy. Gas prices are down, oil companies are going out of business. The Energy Sector is depressed. But like the guys in The Big Short who saw the flaws of the banking system, I see a world dependent on oil. When Saudi Arabia stops pumping cheap oil, there will be another Oil Shock similar to the one we had in the 1970s. I bought Marathon Oil (MRO) and Devon (DVN). They are domestic producers so there’s no Middle East exposure. If you’re thinking about what to do with that Tax Refund, maybe a few oil stocks might brighten your future.
