Oil Trade

The trend is your friend in oil's recent 30% slide. A safe trade would be to go short the US Oil ETF (USO) and long Halliburton (HAL). From a fundamental basis, Halliburton has more limited downside than the actual commodity. The other trade would be to go short the ethanol producers (PEIX or VSE) and long Halliburton. If you have an option account, consider buying puts in USO, VSE, PEIX.

What about going long on USO instead? Do you see more downside than upside in the near future?

I see more short selling in USO. A way to hedge that bet would be to get long HAL. You could also just go long HAL and buy puts in USO. Or just get long HAL. I am looking at HAL as a value play.

I would agree with long on HAL. Their balance sheet is pretty solid and the departure of KBR should eliminate any PR disasters in the future.

While they are looking cheap in regards to forward earnings, they are somewhat pricey in regards to book value.

I suppose this calls for due diligence.

Halliburton still owns 81% of KBR. The "spin-off" will take place sometime before April 2007. HAL & KBR report earnings this Friday.

I like to read a lot. share market tips Play a crucial role in today’s economy; they are the key contributors towards a country’s GDP growth. India in the last decade has established itself as a powerful economy and it is growing at a healthy rate. One of the key constituents of India’s robust economy is its stock market. The stock market tips dates back to the eighteenth century. However, the real journey of the Indian Stock market began in the middle of the nineteenth century with the passing of the “Company’s Act” in 1850. The primary driving forces behind the development of the Indian Stock market were the native shares and the stock broker’s Association.

Hi, i am from trading tips .Wealth in its most primal form comes from under the ground. Plants come from under the ground. Minerals come from under the ground. Water comes from under the ground. Even petrol comes from under the ground. Little wonder then that Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, is called Patala-nivasini, she who resides in the subterranean realm. She is also addressed as Pulomi, the daughter of the Asura-king, Puloman and Bhargavi, daughter of Bhrigus, another name for Shukra, who served as guru to the Asuras. But Asuras are demons who have been shoved under the ground by the gods! What make Lakshmi the daughter of demons? Is this an ancient moral judgment against wealth?
