CNBC's lunchtime panel likes energy services stocks as the smartest play on energy whatever crude oil prices do in the short-term. Pointing to low earnings expectations, Joe Terranova likes Halliburton (HAL), Baker Hughes (BHI) and Basic Energy (BAS). "Even if oil were to go to $80, [energy services] companies still print money," Stephanie Link says, suggesting Occidental (OXY) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV).
