Facing the Fear of Missing Out

By Roger S. Conrad on Apr. 29, 2016

The recent rally in the energy sector has lifted all boats, including the worm-ridden ones; investors should take advantage of this opportunity to exit any of the Sell-rated names in our coverage universe.

In fact, many of the weakest energy stocks have posted the biggest gains, suckering in momentum-seeking investors with a fear of missing out. These companies, many of which were raised on $100 per barrel oil, lack the balance sheet and franchise assets to survive in an environment where West Texas Intermediate ranges between $40 and $60 per barrel.

Investors must also stay disciplined. Most of our Portfolio holdings trade above our dream prices, and some have rallied beyond our value-based buy targets.

As such, investors should consider taking a partial profit off the table in any of their big winners and reserve this cash for future pullbacks.
