Biden Called to Unleash Shale to Counter Deepening Energy Crisis

(Bloomberg) — The chorus is growing from America’s oil executives for President Joe Biden to throw the federal government’s weight behind an industry he once deliberately shunned: U.S. shale.

SLB’s fundamentals are getting stronger – does it also make the stock a useful value?

Since the beginning of 2021, the energy sector has rebounded strongly from the pandemic-driven pressures that had kept prices – particularly in crude oil – depressed throughout 2020. From a November 2020 low point at around $34, for example, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude more than doubled to an October peak at around $85. The […]

Don’t ignore the big discounts in Energy stocks like PSX

One of the big themes this year of the “reopening” trade has come from a generally expected increase in consumer activity in activities that were almost completely restricted in 2020 such as travel to take vacations. That generally implies consumer demand for airlines, hotel bookings, and resorts should also increase, which is typically good news […]

Gas CEO Says ‘Unleash American Shale’ to End Energy Crisis

(Bloomberg) — The largest U.S. natural gas driller is using the global energy crisis to renew his call for more investment in domestic infrastructure such as pipelines, which he says will enable increased exports and ease shortages. U.S. gas drillers could increase supplies by about 20% if not for pipeline and export constraints, EQT Corp. […]

Midstream stocks like EPD are a good way to take advantage of Energy sector momentum
