Investing In Low Priced Oil Economy

by John on 01/09/2015

Is this a good time to invest with oil and gas prices so low?

I spoke with Hugh Anderson of Hightower Las Vegas, a financial consulting firm. You can hear the interview here.

Some highlights:

  • There are deals in stocks in the energy sector.
  • Oil should stay low for at least another two years.
  • The main causes for low oil prices: Saudi Arabia and US shale oil production adding supply to the market with lessening demand.
  • Hugh thinks the days of the Saudis controlling the oil markets are over because of the next two points.
  • Oil could stay low for longer: 2 reasons; technological advances in shale production; more countries producing shale.
  • Hugh also introduced us to two new technologies on the horizon: Enhanced Oil Recovery; and Carbon Sequestration.

One thing we didn’t cover: the increased seismic activity in Texas that seems to be caused by fracking. Could this have a long-term effect? Or maybe enhanced oil recovery and carbon sequestration take a bigger role?

Any thoughts, drop them here or on my social media pages where this is posted.
