An Unconventional Energy Player in the Driver's Seat

Panhandle Royalty

Our energy bets are bruised and battered, and it's easy to see why. Investors had big bet on energy stocks, but now that crude oil has fallen 9% this year and 30% since last summer, hedge funds are heading for the exits. Is there any end in sight?

It may be just around the corner. The eerily warm weather in much of the U.S. is about to "turn on a dime," predicts AccuWeather.com forecaster Joe Bastardi.

"Those who think that this winter is going to remain mild are in for a shock," he says. "A week from now, we'll start seeing truly cold air across much of the country, and we expect this change to last." By the end of the month, people in the Northeast will be shoveling out their driveways, and today's mild weather "will be a distant memory," he says.

I wouldn't be surprised. A sharp reversal in the second half of winter can be common when an El Niño pattern causes unusually warm weather in the first half -- the case right now.

The arrival of cold winter weather to the environs of a good portion of the world's energy traders in New York will likely reverse the negative psychology towards the sector -- and put a bid under our energy stocks.
