With or without the approval of Keystone? According to the IEA, the US will be the biggest producer by 2017. We just had the Exxon spill and there was the CP spill a couple of weeks ago. With all of this, why do you really want to buy oil and if you do, what oil are you going to buy? He is not hot on Canadian oil stocks at this time. (See Top Picks.)

Energy is still in favour. You may want to sell in May. It has broken out of a previous range and previous high. This dip is a buying opportunity. You have not missed the run. Jan to May is 10% gain but between March and May is 8% so you have a lot of run to go.

Seasonals are usually favorable on the oils but the stocks don’t seem to be moving so much with the prices of oil. This is because the energy sector contains so much Nat. Gas. There is some resistance in this sector at 16 and change. He would be fairly neutral on the sector. He plays it through broad market indexes.

Energy has strong seasonality from end of January until May of each year. Right now we are not in that time. We are now getting a nice little base pattern. When it crosses the 20 day moving average and starts to outperform the market, that will be a signal to buy. If they say XL will go ahead, it will have a big impact on heavy oil stocks. Between March and May we should get more news on the Keystone pipeline.
