It's time to readjust portfolios towards energy to remain safe in more turbulent bond and stock markets, TheStreet's Dan Dicker writes; investing in a staple commodity requires buying staple-like oil companies, especially E&P names that can monetize a sticky and high price for oil. Yield generators such as XOM and CVX will lag, while higher beta names such as APC, NBL and EOG will outperform.

    Imo the comment of "CVX will lag" is TOTALLY WRONG !
    I can see XOM as lagging but not CVX who has highest per bbl return of all majors plus great dividend and pricing power in their petrochemical division. Also nat gas will be a winner for them especially ex Australia to Far East deliveries where the highest prices are paid.

    To "remain safe" in a "turbulent" market you need high beta names. Somehow that makes no sense to me.

    Don't forget RDS-B, for a nice boring 5%+ dividend stock.
