Pick Energy, Not Gold.



September 29, 2011 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: XOM , CVX , BP

Commodities stocks have always been of interest to many investors. If you are looking to get into the commodities market, be tactful in your choice. Energy commodities are a great choice in this area of the market, and others agree. Jeff Benjamin has a pretty strong opinion supporting energy, along with some stock picks.


 “U.S. equities are one of the strongest places to be in terms of a core portfolio holding,” he said. “There’s no attractive yield in Treasuries, and on a relative basis, stocks are more attractively priced than bonds right now.”

The place to be, he said, is energy.

“I’m a big fan of large-cap oil,” he said. “Right now, the politics in the U.S. is swinging against the current administration, and that will favor energy exploration.”

With that in mind, he is investing in BP PLC (BP), Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM), Chevron Corp. (CVX), and Apache Corp. (APA)."
