The oil landscape has drastically changed in the past decade. The Saudis were the swing producer before; now it's the Americans. We also have competing sources of energy, namely wind and solar. That said, oil won't go away for decades. He owns fewer oil stocks (he sold Haliburton), but holds onto names like Suncor and Parex, which should do better than an oil service name like SLB.

SLB-N is trading flat despite beating earnings recently. He actually has a small short on this one. The valuation is not compelling, trading at 15 times cash flow and only 6% ROE. They need to see day rates improving.

He can't forecast price targets for any oil stock, given so many factors like e-cars. Play oil seasonally, not long term. Dec. 14-April 30 is seasonality. This is setting up well. SLB is a loser this year and will be busy during tax-loss selling. It's resisting its 200-day moving average. He wouldn't buy until it breaks above that. Short-term support is $30, but can it run ahead?

A blue chip oil stock, one of the biggest oil and gas services company, and they used a lot of high technology. But they've fallen victim to the entire depressed oil space. This is an opportunity now. He knows the oil sector very well, having worked as an engineer at Chevron for years; he prefers smaller-cap stocks for their leverage, but SLB will do well when oil stocks recover.

The largest oil service company. It is great to own when you think energy is going higher. Not the right timing now however.

An international company and probably the best global energy service company out there. She is just not into the energy sector in general right now. The retracement in oil prices back into the $50s is again problematic for the energy space. She is on the sidelines with energy producers and service providers.

There have been so many times where you would have been tempted to buy into weakness. The oil services space has been crushed. He would stay a hundred miles away from this. He has focused more into the midstream side of the energy space.

Lots of volume at its low levels with huge churn. He likes it. It's consolidating around $44. Set a $42 exit point. No resistance until $60. Good upside to downside potential.

Remain the highest-quality player in oil and gas service but not as exposed to offshore drilling and fracking which may be why they're being hit these days. If you hold, don't panic. If not, maybe don't buy now. Current price targets will fall.

Largest oil service company in the world. Generally, tracks how oil and gas exploration is doing. Probably decent value now.

He prefers not to take the company specific risk. He prefers OIH-N. SLB-N is extremely well run. It is making up a lot of lost ground at this point. He prefers E&P. The XLE-N is another ETF to consider.

Sell Halliburton (HAL-N) and buy Schlumberger (SLB-N) to avoid the superficial tax loss? This is one way of doing it. The rule is that you can't buy back the same security within 30 days. He prefers Halliburton.

The highest quality company in the oil service business. They have the leading technology and are well positioned globally. Because of the massive investment in US fracing over the last 2-3 quarters, they have been having surprisingly good earnings results. In spite of that, he wouldn’t buy the stock because he still believes the world is awash in oil. There is not going to be a shortage of crude oil for some time.
