  • Invest in Europe, the Smart Way

    By Joshua Bondy - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: SDRL, STO, YNDX

    Europe is a heavyweight in the global economy, but the euro is suffocating the European Union. Spain's unemployment rate recently reached 26.9%, while Greece is at 27.2%. Even Germany's future is looking grim. Its export machine is slowing down with low growth forecasts in China and Europe. In the midst of the storm, Norway and Russia are exceptions to the rule with their own currencies and more »

  • Choosing the Best Oil Stock

    By Adrian Campos - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: PTR, PBR, RDS-A, STO

  • Value Investing Is Simple: Wrong!

    By Alexander Cho - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: NLY, BVN, STO

    One of the things I really like to do is bury myself in market analysis. I really like examining long-term trends in performance and identifying key behavior in the value of stocks.

    The inspiration for value analysis

    Buying at a low price-to-earnings multiple should be a cakewalk, right? The difficulty with this is that lower price-to-earnings multiples tend to happen on the bottom of an economic cycle.

    By Yong Kwon - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: BP, XOM, STO

    On June 28, the Shah Deniz gas field consortium in Azerbaijan awarded the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) the privilege of delivering the newly tapped gas supply to Europe. If developments continue to move at this speed, the final investment decision will be made sometime in October 2013 and production is due to start in 2018 with the first volumes arriving in Europe by 2019.

    After finding one of the biggest natural-gas discoveries in the Rovuma Basin on the east coast of Africa, Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) made a wise decision to take advantage of the strategic location of its findings. The company is planning to build the second-largest LNG export terminal in the world to serve the energy-hungry Asian countries.

  • This Norwegian Oil and Gas Company Is Cheap

    By Anh HOANG - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: XOM, STO, TOT

    In the search for investment opportunities in the oil and gas business, I came across Statoil (NYSE: STO), the Norwegian integrated energy company. Statoil’s stock price performance has been worse than its peers, including ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) and Total (NYSE: TOT). Since the beginning of the year, while ExxonMobil gained 5.7% and Total decreased by 4.2%, Statoil experienced a 10.6% decline on the market. Is Statoil more »

    Hess' (NYSE: HES), four-month battle with billionaire Paul Singer’s Elliott Management has finally come to an end with the most dramatic change in the oil company’s board in its 80-year history.

    By Jacob Steinberg - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: BP, XOM, STO

    ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM)) is the world's largest publicly traded company and it continues to offer a lot of value to investors. In the last five years, the company returned $145 billion to its stockholders in the shape of dividends and share repurchases and the company will continue to reward investors that believe in it for years to come.

  • Will an Anti-Monopoly Case Punish Europe's Oil Companies?

    By Joshua Bondy - May 17, 2013 | Tickers: BP, RDS-B, RDS-A, STO

    Reports are out that the European commission is investigating a number of major oil companies for price-rigging. These threats shouldn't be taken lightly, as the EU has already shown that it is willing to slap big fines on monopolists and oligopolists, such as Intel.  In addition to monetary penalties, the EU has forced monopolists like Google to change their business practices. With the LIBOR fiasco fresh in the mind more »

  • This Oil Giant Is Cheap: Should You Buy?

    By Federico Zaldua - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: EC, PBR, STO

    Petrobras Brazil (NYSE: PBR) is cheap against comparable state controlled oil companies such as Colombia's Ecopetrol (NYSE: EC) and Norway's Statoil (NYSE: STO).  Below I post six reasons to explain why you should consider including Petrobras within your portfolio.

    1) This month Petrobras will receive the bids for the Brazilian portion of its farm-out process.  Assets such as Xerelete, Maromba and BC-10 should be in the package. Analysts more »

  • Why I'm Bullish on European Oil

    By Daniel Paterson - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: BP, STO, TOT

    The oil industry seems to be constantly undervalued. Many of the large companies in this space produce massive amounts of revenue and trade at low multiples. However, there are still ways to identify companies that I feel can outperform American giants such as ExxonMobil and Chevron.

    Three European oil companies, all of which trade at even greater discounts when compared to industry competitors, are set up for long-term success all more »

  • The Russian Bet

    By Federico Zaldua - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: BP, XOM, STO

    Since 2013 started, I have been recommending British Petroleum (NYSE: BP). As a matter of fact, I made myself a shareholder. As a responsible investor I have been researching the company and its investments. Talking about investments, one of BP's current biggest bets is its 19.75% ownership of Russian oil giant Rosneft. British Petroleum got this share of Rosneft when it sold its 50% stake in TNK-BP for more »

  • Buy, Sell, or Hold for This Offshore Energy Company?

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CIE, E, STO, TOT, EGY

    Hunting for overlooked energy companies, I stumbled upon VAALCO Energy (NYSE: EGY) that holds producing properties in Gabon and significant exploration acreage in Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Angola. It seems that the good times have bypassed the company's stock, which has underperformed over the last months. However, don't be blinded by this underperformance, because the fundamentals tell us a different story.

  • Regulation or Technology - What's Barring ConocoPhillips From Drilling the Arctic?

    By Satarupa Bose - April 16, 2013 | Tickers: COP, RDS-A, STO

    Oil spills and faulty exploration techniques have caused extensive and irreversible environmental damages on the face of the earth. In order that no such incidents are repeated, the government should formulate laws, and no such laws pertaining to the Arctic oil drilling have been formulated. This uncertainty regarding federal laws has compelled ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) to suspend operations in the Alaskan Arctic waters.

  • Find Big Dividends Among These European Oil Majors

    By Bob Ciura - April 11, 2013 | Tickers: E, STO, TOT

    Investing in Europe might seem like a scary proposition, what with market-rattling headlines being made seemingly on a daily basis. News out of Europe continues to suggest the region hasn’t made headway in its ongoing fiscal crisis, and investors would be understandably reluctant to allocate a portion of their portfolio to a continent in the midst of financial calamity.

    However, in times like these it’s important to separate more »
