  • Global events are signaling a massive fuel shortage as winter approaches, particularly in Europe. This will exert upward pressure on the price of fuel the world over.
  • Occidental Petroleum outshines its competitors in terms of financial fundamentals.
  • Occidental has defied this current stock market melt-down and is up 99% year to date, even as the S&P 500 is down 19%.
  • Long term, the following few years could be the last call for oil company profits as nations around the world decouple their fuel supply from global politics and turn to reliable, locally-based fuel sources.
