Since the previous issue of Energy and Income Advisor, energy stocks have backed off a bit more from their June 8 recovery high. The S&P 500 Energy Sector Index finished last week down -21 percent from that level, though it’s still 60.7 percent above the March 18 low.
Super majors-focused NYSE Arca Oil Index (NYSE: XOI) has given back -20.4 percent and is now up 71.6 percent from mid-March. And the midstream-heavy JP Morgan Alerian MLP Index ETN (NYSE: AMJ) has retreated -23 percent to a point 113.2 percent above the recent bottom.
Pullbacks like this one come with the territory when a market has risen as far and fast as energy stocks have since March. If it does extend, we’ll consider it an improved opportunity to buy best in class companies at better prices, with an eye on our Dream Buy levels.
