Considering coming out of cash and and wading back into the markets? Look at energy, says Real Money's Daniel Dicker, particularly offshore drilling companies. Offshore profitability is almost entirely based on crude oil pricing, and Dicker is convinced that crude oil prices will find a bottom well above $100/bbl. This will make the most challenging offshore operations, using the deep and ultra deep water rigs owned and leased by companies like SeaDrill (SDRL), Transocean (RIG), Ensco (ESV) and Rowan (RDC) increasingly profitable through 2012-13.
