Off to New York
Time’s tight this week, so you’ll get my next full report in a few days.
That’s because today is the launch of my new book, The Vega Factor: Oil Volatility and the Next Global Crisis, published by John Wiley & Sons. (Click here to be one of the first to get it.)
And that is why I am in New York City.
As you read this, I am preparing for a morning meeting with Barron’s at the News Corp. Building in Manhattan. This is the first of 11 interviews here over the next couple days. All of them are on the book and what it says about the accelerating volatility in oil trade.
I’ll be doing “Closing Bell” on CNBC from Wall Street later this afternoon (4:15 pm Eastern time) and Fox Business tomorrow at 2 pm.
Other interviews are with The Wall Street Journal, TheStreet.com (Jim Cramer’s gang), MarketWatch, Dow Jones Newswire, Yahoo! Finance, Fox News,and two with Bloomberg Radio – “Taking Stock” with Pimm Fox tomorrow afternoon at 3:35 pm and “The Hays Advantage” with Kathleen Hays at 2 pm on Thursday.
One thing is now certain…
Following the sharp changes in oil pricing over the past several weeks, nobody needs persuading to see that volatility is the great unknown factor in the energy sector. The big problem emerging, however, is the inability of the market to understand how it factors into the actual pricing of oil.
Of course, we have been talking about it all along in these very columns.
As greater attention is directed to what this instability means to the investment community, the commentators in both print and broadcast media are asking me what the average investor needs to do.
Seems the book is coming out at the right time!
I’ll be giving advice to the CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg,and MarketWatch audiences on moves individual investors can make to profit from this environment. I will even be making specific stock picks to help them on their way.
However, subscribers to my Energy Advantage and Energy Inner Circle have already received these calls (and many more), while the rationale for those choices has been unfolding here in the columns of Oil & Energy Investor for well over a year now.
That’s the way it will stay. My calls are made here first.
