Come on, Mike. Demand for oil is in the toilet; nobody is commuting to work. Shale crapped out a few years ago, and surpluses are happy, i.e., the supply side is fat, and the demand side doesn't care at all. Oddly, the oil sector has been up the past couple of days, but that will probably be over on Monday, much like the recent banking/hedge fund stock trend represented by mortgage-backed security scuzz trying to fix up their balance sheets while everyone was/is dropping (mortgage-packed) bonds like toxic waste.

Dividends are in a funny state now, too, as they have become yet another cost to cut. I got one last week for holding a gold ETF for like four days . . . it only paid for one beer, but it was swell, nonetheless.

On a fun California note, it is interesting (should be alarming) how Tesla is in bed with PG&E on a central coast solar/battery farm thing (in the midst of the largest utility bankruptcy ever). Too legit to quit, those folks . . .

Happy shelter-in-place weekend, dudes!

And cautiously optimistic. Strange times, strange times indeed.

Oil is strange. Were gonna need it and the demand for it is ever increasing despite what the stocks tell us. it's bad now but the economist reports I read is the electric cars and buses all need the recharging (caption obvious) but where is that energy coming from? Solar= not enough, Nuclear=everybody's scared. Oil=easy, not sure.
I'm not heavy in oil, other than some divi Chevron stock.

It reminds me of an analogy: The time to buy is at deepest pessimism. You make me want to buy oil! HA

Guess who is betting on US stocks? The whole world. Europe, Asia, Mideast and every one else. It's going to be a wild ride but we the US are the only solid bet in the world.
Oil? Trump had a few words with the Saudis yesterday. Pretty much said if they flood the oil market all of our Navy ships and any military assistance is gone. Same for all the other Mideast oil producers. Let Iran shut down the gulf and see where oil prices go. If that happens there will be a drilling bonanza in the US like you have never seen before.
Bet on the US. That's where my money is at.
