    XLE Needs to do This to Legitimize a Rebound

    The Energy Select Sector SPDR (XLE) , the largest equity-based energy exchange traded fund, is sporting a fourth-quarter loss of about 14% so a rebound may not be imminent nor may it be the first thing on investors' minds when it comes to the energy sector. During oil’s recent slide, XLE and other basic energy ETFs performed significantly less poorly than the underlying commodity. “The XLE energy ETF has fallen more than 1 percent since Monday, on track for a second week in the red.

    China’s Economic Data Might Drag Oil Prices

    On December 14, China reported the November industrial output growth at 5.4% on a year-over-year basis—the lowest growth since early 2016. The industrial output growth was below the expectation. China’s retail sales growth rate was also at a multiyear low. China was the second-largest oil consumer in the world. Any slowdown in China’s economy would be a negative development for crude oil prices. At 7:43 AM EST, US crude oil prices have lost $0.34 from the last closing level.

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAC) expects Brent crude oil to average ~$70 per barrel in 2019, according to a CNBC report.

    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.

    Russia’s Production Cut Decision Could Make or Break Oil Prices

    OPEC members have provisionally decided to implement production cuts but are waiting for Russia to agree to a cut, according to a Reuters report. 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.
