    A Bold Call on Energy ETFs

    The Energy Select Sector SPDR (XLE) , the largest equity-based energy exchange traded fund, entered Monday with a fourth-quarter loss of about 12%, but some market observers believe the energy sector is poised to rebound. Last week, oil exchanged-traded funds (ETFs) gained after lengthy Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) discussions finally came to a conclusion, resulting in a larger-than-expected production cut that sent oil prices higher on Friday. OPEC and associated partners agreed to cut 1.2 million barrels per day with OPEC being responsible for 800,000 barrels.

    Chesapeake Energy's stock bounces as oil price jump offsets J.P. Morgan's bearish call

    Shares of Chesapeake Energy Corp. bounced sharply off a 10-month low Friday, as a big rally in oil prices helped offset J.P. Morgan analyst Arun Jayaram turning bullish on the oil and gas production company. Jayaram cut his rating to underweight, after being at neutral for at least the past three years, citing concerns over near-term headwinds from the $4 billion WildHorse Resource Development Corp. announced in late October. The stock rallied 2.6% in morning trade, after closing Thursday at the lowest level since Feb. 21. Jayaram said that although the acquisition, which provided increased oil weightings, was a "necessary step" to turn the corner on its turnaround plan, "the stock will likely be a 'show me' situation" as investors generally had mixed views on the East Texas Eagle Ford plays. Meanwhile, the energy sector was broadly higher, with the SPDR Energy Select Sector ETF up 1.6% with 24 of 25 components gaining ground, as oil prices jumped after reports that OPEC and Russia agreed to production cuts. Chesapeak's stock has tumbled 31% over the past three months, while the energy ETF has shed 10% and the S&P 500 has lost 7.1%.

    All 11 S&P 500 sectors tumble by at least 1% in broad-based, stock-market tumble

    The S&P 500's main sectors were all trading sharply lower midday Thursday, highlighting the depth of a decline in equity markets. The 11 sectors of the S&P 500 were all down by as much as 1%, with financials and energy sectors down by at least 3.5%, leading the drop. The move comes as investors have been sensitive to signs of an economic slowdown that could upend a multiyear bullmarket and longstanding expansion in the U.S. Tumbling crude-oil prices also have been spotlighted as a sign of those worries, since oil prices tend to fall sharply when expectations for demand drop. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite Index also were trading sharply lower on the day. Both stock and bond markets were closed on Wednesday to mark a national day of mourning for George H.W. Bush, the U.S.'s 41st president, who died at 94.

As of December 6 at 8:55 AM CST, US crude oil prices have declined ~2.7%. If Russia won’t agree to a production cut, OPEC alone cannot implement a cut because it could hurt its oil revenue.

    Dow logs 290-point gain after trade-war truce, but dip below 3% for 10-year reflects some caution

    U.S. stocks finished sharply higher Monday after the market reacted optimistically to U.S. and China over the weekend calling a temporary truce to their trade dispute. The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended up about 290 points, or 1.1%, at 25,826, but had been up by as many as 442 points in early morning action. The S&P 500 index closed 1.1% higher at 2,790, powered by gains in the energy sector, on the back of a surge in crude-oil futures , while the consumer-discretionary sectors also was among the best performing sectors among the S&P 500's 11 on the day. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 1.5% at 7,442. However, the fall in the yield of the 10-year Treasury note to below 3% on Friday (bond prices rise and yields fall), may reflect some tepid concerns about the prospects for a firm agreement being achieved by China and the U.S. in the 90-day period from Jan. 1, and the outlook for the domestic economy as the Federal Reserve attempts to normalize interest rate policy.

    Will the US Senate Vote on Yemen’s War Help Oil’s U-Turn?

    On November 28, the US Senate voted for a motion on “a joint resolution to direct the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress.” The vote means an additional discussion on the topic, although the resolution is still far from getting passed. The move for the resolution intensified after the death of US resident Jamal Khashoggi, who shared hostile relations with Saudi Arabia’s current regime. Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producer among OPEC countries.
