Christopher Earnest, Partner, Houston Office of Compensation Advisory Partners By John Jannarone A slew of companies have been in the crosshairs of proxy advisors due to their approach to so-called Say on Pay practices. In the energy sector, for example, the likes of Halliburton, C&J, and Parker Drilling faced criticism for failing to conduct appropriate […]
Oilfield services stocks have mainly been weak in 2018. The stocks fell significantly in the past month. The VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF (OIH) has hit a 15-year low. Top oilfield services stocks Schlumberger (SLB), Haliburton (HAL), and TechnipFMC (FTI) hit new 52-week lows on November 13.

Investors have plenty of worries, including higher interest rates, oil prices, China’s economic health and a changing political outlook following the elections. Reports claim said fund stole money and that Goldman Sachs “cheated” in its dealings in the matter.
Oil prices have certainly been under some pressure over the past several weeks. While the carnage in oil prices has been historic, the move in oil service stocks has been even more extreme. Investors and traders alike who think that oil prices are due for a bounce should consider oil service stocks as a very viable alternative to crude futures.
In the near-term this move increasingly looks to be overdone and I am looking for stocks in the energy space, such as Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB) for buying opportunities into year-end. Just because a stock has gone on sale and in the case of SLB stock has dropped 40% from the 2018 highs does not make it a buy. From a timing perspective, the early-to-mid-November period tends see buyers come into the stock market for a year-end rally.
Investing in small-cap stocks has historically been a way to outperform the market, as small-cap companies typically grow faster on average than the blue chips.

The 2016 election of a free-wheeling Republican businessman should have signaled great times for the U.S. oil patch, but that hasn't happened, even though crude oil hit a four-year high in September 2018. The oil equipment and services sector is leading the downside during the current malaise, with the VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF ( OIH) now trading at a 15-year low. Blue chips are currently underperforming smaller companies in the oil equipment and services sub-sector, with Halliburton Company ( HAL) trading at a 2.5-year low while Schlumberger Limited ( SLB) probes an astounding nine-year low.

Sometimes a great stock with CAN SLIM traits needs to form two bases before breaking out to big gains. Look for a base-on-base pattern. Winnebago built one last year.
German car maker Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) signed what looked like a meaty deal with one of its China joint ventures this week at a huge new trade show in Shanghai to ship almost $9 billion worth of cars and parts to China next year. Two sources close to the company and its FAW-Volkswagen tie-up said the joint venture would have imported the cars and parts with or without the expo to support its day-to-day manufacturing and sales operations, as it does every year. FAW-Volkswagen did not have an immediate comment.
