Credit Suisse remains bearish on the commodity sector, noting years of high prices triggered a capex surge, with new supplies coming on just at the time they're not needed. Mining stocks (XME) may look cheap, says the team, but it's a sector that once it gets oversold tends to remain so. Big-cap oil (XLE)? It tends to outperform only during periods when stocks are falling, credit spreads are rising, or the oil price is spiking - none of which is likely.
