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.
