Investors’ patience with oil-services stocks could be richly rewarded

Charles Lemonides, chief investment officer of ValueWorks, which manages about $220 million for private and institutional clients in New York, named two oil-services companies he has invested in for the long term. Flynn said that when the price of oil was rising in late 2017 and early 2018, oil-services companies were “ramping up,” but then “got caught leaning the wrong way” as a reversal in price action led to a significant decline in the U.S. shale rig count.
