Shell, A Deep Water And LNG Powerhouse, Part 1

11h seekingalpha
My readers know me as a contrarian who kicks over the stones others may have stumbled past to find value. Two recurring themes resonate in my articles. The first is that Deep Water exploration and production is far from dead as some have proclaimed. Rather, it is in fact a necessary component of a secure global energy supply. I wrote an article a few months back on why Deep Water production was necessary for big operators to balance their portfolios. (2-0)

Chart Of The Week: Deconstructing And Applying BRL

2017-11-18 seekingalpha
Last week's Chart of the Week kicks off this week's, though it will have to wait for a series of explanations to get us from that one to this. A week ago, we noted the growing divergence between leveraged loan prices and WTI, two risk indicators that used to be pretty well correlated for obvious reasons. The S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan 100 Index did not have a good week this week, while oil was down only somewhat until trading today. (2-0)

Rising Oil Prices Have Short Sellers Confused

2017-11-10 247wallst
Crude oil had traded above $50 a barrel in the first quarter of this year, and finally it’s back to that magic number and pushing higher. The price has held relatively steady at this level, and it’s steadily creeping toward $60. The current crude price is still less than half of what it was in 2014. (52-0)

Top Analyst Upgrades and Downgrades: Chevron, Chipotle, Exxon, Goldman Sachs, GoPro, IBM, Merck, Petrobras, UnitedHealth, Visa, Zynga and More

2017-10-18 247wallst
Stocks hit new highs this week, and Wednesday looks to be the day that the Dow Jones Industrial Average will vault through 23,000. Dow futures were up 91 points and S&P futures were up four points. The trend that has dominated continually and often surprisingly for more than five years is that investors keep finding new reasons to buy their favorite stocks after every major sell-off. Those same investors are also hunting for new investing and trading ideas with their capital. (243-0)

How Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) Is Winning in Latin America

2017-10-11 investorplace
When it comes to the energy sector, Brazil is often seen as the crown jewel of exploration. The nation’s rich pre-salt and deepwater fields are full of potential, holding billions of barrels worth of crude oil and natural gas. But one little nation in Latin America could be giving Brazil a run for it money, and the venerable Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) is quickly becoming its dominant player with several massive finds.

Major Oil Scares Off Short Sellers

2017-10-11 247wallst
Crude oil had traded above $50 a barrel in the first quarter of this year, and finally it’s back to that magic number. If the price can hold near this level, analysts may start calling for the $60 price level, but oil has to stabilize here first after having flirted with this level for the past week. The current crude price is still less than half of what it was in 2014. (52-0)

The Price Of Oil

2017-10-03 seekingalpha
Both governments and automotive companies are placing large bets on alternative vehicle drivetrains, above all electric vehicles. In this context, Roberto F. Aguilera and Marian Radetzki's The Price of Oil, which Gavin Roberts reviews for, appears to be a "must read." I have yet to look at it, and would certainly like to see whether more recent evidence backs up their core claims. Their bottom line is that both new technologies and new politics will keep the price of petroleum low for the next decade. (2-0)

Exxon Mobil And Petrobras Bet On Offshore Drilling

2017-09-29 seekingalpha
The prolonged downturn in the offshore drilling space prompted many observers to say that the offshore drilling era was over. Many downside factors were noted, including low oil prices, which make offshore drilling projects uneconomic, competition from short-cycle shale projects, which get the most investment dollars, and the rise of electric vehicles, which are supposed to kill the oil industry in the long term.
