Energy stocks generally have to do well due to trends in the supply-demand situation.

Since over 80% of petroleun stocks are controlled by one government or another, the energy service area is attractive because it does not depend on ownership of a commodity that some government can suddenly tax or seize.

Parker stands out because it drives deeper into the boonies and deeper underground.
