Avoid These Energy Stocks if the Economy Takes a Turn for the Worst



July 13, 2011 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: BHI , COG , APC

The media has been telling us that the recession has ended, and we are now moving upward to bigger and better things. Despite this hopeful outlook, we have yet to see any major changes in the economic status of our country. Why not prepare your portfolio if the economy takes another down turn. You can never be too prepared, and Parsimony Investment Research believe that these are the energy stocks to steer clear of if this occurs.

If oil prices drop about $80, these are the companies that will be suffering and creating an imbalance of risk and reward. Basically, they will be more volatile.
