Investor/swing trader focusing on U.S. onshore independent oil E&P stocks. I don’t sell or promote anything, just a man of leisure.
I invest for fun; no successful person needs to play in the markets. Mostly I spend my time outdoors – building, gardening, or just enjoying the West Virginia mountains and wildflowers.
Bob De’Long is a pen name. I’m a former hands-on manager in the petroleum and coal industries and a former university professor (professional engineer, MBA, and PhD).
I have an active (perhaps overly active) sense of humor, and I especially enjoy looking at the metaphors others use to express themselves or to cover what they don’t know or cannot express.
Independent oil E&P stocks that I follow, own and/or trade (when the price) is right are:
Whiting Petroleum (WLL)
Newfield Exploration (NFX)
Continental Resources (CLR)
EOG Resources (EOG)
SM Energy (SM)
Rosetta Recourses (ROSE)
and GPOR, PDCE, BCEI, BBG
Natural Gas E&P stocks that I follow (but may never buy again because the industry is dying) are:
EQT Corporation (EQT)
Range Recourses (RRC)
Southwestern Energy (SWN)
Ultra Petroleum (UPL)
Deltic Timber (DEL) is the only non-petroleum stock that I follow, own, and/or trade.
Just an average investor... primarily in American equity and bonds.
