Event Registration - Energy Outlook: Using Energy Investments to Generate Income in a Low-Yield World

Thursday, April 08, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Energy Outlook: Using Energy Investments to Generate Income in a Low-Yield World 


2020 was a historic period for global markets, particularly the oil market and energy stocks. The year that ushered in a pandemic across the globe inflicted substantial demand-side damage to a sector already hobbled over the past few years by secular headwinds. The price of a barrel of oil experienced one of the worst price drops on record, with contracts for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil at one point trading at negative prices. The S&P 500 Energy Sector posted the worst total return performance among all the sectors--down 34%--and sits at a historically low market-cap weighting of around 2% within the large-cap index.   

While the energy sector has turned around some of its performance at the start of 2021, long-term questions remain on its future, which hinges on the vaccine rollout, geopolitics, peak oil demand, and a new administration in Washington that is focused on spurring a rapid shift to renewable energy. Where do oil markets and energy stocks go from here? Does the oil market have the fundamental setup to rally beyond its current level? How should investors evaluate the alpha opportunities among the various energy sub-industries? 

Join us on April 8, 2021 at 12:00 PM EDT as we host Warren Pies, ERP, Founder and Chief Macro Strategist of 3Fourteen Research. Warren will provide an overview of the mechanics that drive the oil market and his outlook for the energy sector.
