Josef Schachter – Macroeconomic Fundamentals Affecting The Energy Sector

Josef Schachter, Founder and Editor of The Schachter Energy Report, joins us to focus on the energy sector with a focus on the macroeconomic drivers on the supply and demand side for the oil and natural gas markets.  Much of the geopolitical forces involve tariffs easing for Venezuela, and increasing from Europe to Russia, as well as challenges in the US production due to the current administration, and a general slowing of the larger economies globally.


We discuss the challenges that inflation, Fed policy challenges, the potential for recession, and how the weak markets almost across the board may shape the setup for a larger correction even in the energy sector. Josef feels many of the energy stocks may see significant pullbacks from current levels and is encouraging his subscribers to pull profits off the table and wait for better buying opportunities in the fall.  He’s more constructive on buying the nat gas energy services company once we see a sector correction play through.

    Hi Ex, you needn’t worry about your missile silo in North Dakota blowing up, because alien warships are hovering over the silo’s and decommissioning the missiles. LOL! DT! 🐱‍👓

    Somebody torpedoed my missile silo joke for Ex. I guess not everyone shares my sense of humor. DT🐱‍🚀

      The post had just gone to moderation, likely due to editing it while it contained a link.


      Missile silo jokes with UFOs must have flagged our AI system… Big Robot is watching… Haha!

    An Epic Set Of ‘Alligator Jaws,’ Part Deux

    Jesse Felder – The Felder Report (05/18/2022)

    “Exactly a year ago I shared a chart here that represented ‘An Epic Set Of Alligator Jaws.’ It plotted the weighting of the energy sector within the S&P 500 Index versus the combined weightings of the tech and communications services sectors (which were a single sector until recently). “For my money, those alligator jaws look more likely to snap shut than to open even wider,” I wrote at the time. Indeed, the energy sector has risen more than 60% over the past twelve months, outperforming the index, while the combined tech and communications services sectors have fallen, underperforming the index, resulting in those alligator jaws closing to some degree.”

    “But it’s astounding to note how little these jaws have actually closed in light of the dramatic performance gap between the two groups of stocks. In fact, what I wrote a year ago is just as relevant today as it was then: “Many may be asking themselves whether this trend is sustainable. But when you look at the historical weighting within the S&P 500 Index, energy still comprises a smaller portion than it did 20 years ago, at the dawn of its last major bull market, and tech and communications services are just below their all-time highs set back then at the peak of the DotCom Mania. So I would just ask in return, looking at the chart above, does it appear that energy has become overextended? Or is it more likely popular sectors like tech still have some give back ahead of them?”
