Oil Prices Back Off But We’re Not

By  Elliott H. Gue
Issue No.157 . Sep. 30, 2019

It’s been roughly two weeks since the September 14 attacks on Saudi oilfields took about 5 percent of global oil production temporarily offline. And the North American benchmark price per barrel has already retreated to its long-held mid-50s trading range.

This is the clearest indication yet of how the rise of US shale production has dramatically shifted the global oil market. And it’s why, as we pointed out last issue, energy investors need to rise above the noise of geopolitics.

When it comes to energy prices that means focusing on supply and demand. And it’s why energy companies we own must be able to prosper in the same lower-for-longer price environment that’s existed since mid-decade.

    Talking Point #1: What's the risk of recession and a demand led collapse in oil prices over the next 12 months?

    EG: I continue to believe fears of recession are overblown in the US. In fact, I’m seeing some tentative signs the US economy is stabilizing and we may see some improvement in data over the next few months.

  • Energy Outlook Post Q2 Earnings

    By Elliott H. Gue on Aug. 24, 2019

    Talking Point #1: How much should we worry about the possibility of stalling or even falling production growth in North America for producers, drillers, midstream and downstream companies we own?

    EG: Ironically, I think falling US production would be a huge positive for most of the upstream (producers) and services companies we recommend.
