Today's Webinar: The Paradigm Shift Away From Oil

|About: Chevron Corporation (CVX), OXY, XOM, Includes: CDEV, CHK, CLR, COP, CXO, DVN, ECA, EOG, HES, PE, PXD

The beginning of the end of the oil age is a few years old already.

Divestment of fossil fuel stocks is accelerating and having an impact on equity prices, but not necessarily how you think.

There will still be rallies in oil stocks, however, don't expect multiyear rallies anymore, think a few quarters at a time.

U.S. shale that engages in M&A will be the strongest players over time - think mergers of equals more than takeovers by the majors.

The short-term bottom in oil stocks appears to be in as about half made 52-week lows in the past two weeks.

Each Friday morning, I do a webinar for the public. Some weeks I have a guest and do two shorter webinars. By Saturday morning, the webinars are released on my YouTube channel.

This week we will discuss the already happening "paradigm shift away from oil" and oil stocks. We'll discuss:

  • how the shift away from oil was expected by most, but is happening much sooner and faster than almost anyone expected. 
  • that Exxon (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) are doomed.
  • that the fossil fuel stock divestment movement is having a profound impact on oil stocks by allowing traders to have more control of price movement.
  • mergers of near equals will be the best bet for shale players to survive and thrive. 
  • why Occidental Petroleum (OXY) made the right move acquiring Andarko (APC) and moving to divest many other assets.
  • that the oil majors will only be buying outright several companies and that many small companies will simply go out of business. 
  • there will be some companies that go private at some point if prices get too low. 
  • the major bottom just put in by oil stocks as half of the market made 52-week lows at the same time.
