Why ConocoPhillips Is a Stable Investment for a Volatile Tape

Trifecta Stocks Portfolio Manager Bryan Ashenberg, CFA offers viewers his take on ConocoPhillips, a name held in the Trifecta Stocks Portfolio. Trifecta initiated a position in the name based on the stock's strong dividend yield -- which is now at 3.5% -- and less-than-typical speculative investment thesis, which leads the Trifecta Stocks team to believe ConocoPhillips could provide the portfolio with some stability. ConocoPhillips is a global oil-and-gas exploration and production company with assets in 19 countries and is among the largest North American shale acreage holders. Ashenberg further explains why he likes the name.
