The Bright Side of Cheap Oil

Weekly Market Commentary 1-12-15

Earnings season is here and, as we wrote in our earnings preview last week (“A Tale of Two Earnings Seasons”), low oil prices and the energy sector will be the market’s main focus. Energy companies begin to report earnings this week, as energy services provider Schlumberger releases results on Thursday, January 15, 2015, although most of the sector’s results will come the last week of January and first week of February. While we try to gauge the energy sector outlook, we will also pay close attention to sectors and industries that potentially benefit the most from cheap oil, particularly in the consumer discretionary sector and the transportation industry, or the transports. (This week’s Weekly Economic Commentary, “Drilling into the Labor Market,” discusses energy’s impact on U.S. and state economies and labor markets.)
