It's been a tricky couple of weeks in the markets as lockdown stocks dropped sharply on the vaccine news but are currently "back in style" given the surge in new virus cases. Other areas such as Healthcare have seen their share of mixed signals as well.
Throughout this period, there's been one area of the markets steadily improving and the momentum appears to just be getting started.
I'm talking about stocks in the worst performing Energy sector where lower oil and gas prices along with lower demand, has pushed these stocks down over 50%. Recent interest is pushing many of these stocks into downtrend reversals such as industry heavyweight Chevron (CVX)
DAILY CHART OF CHEVRON (CVX)
The company is one of the few larger oils that hasn't cut their dividend this year as they continue to hold the best balance sheet in their industry due to cost cutting.
This week, CVX bullishly broke back above its key 200-day moving average on volume which points to further upside. The 6% yielder is fundamentally in a good position as well, given its strong cash flow that can help the company ride out any further weakness in oil prices.
Other Energy stocks that broke back above their 200-day moving averages prior to Chevron are in even better positions to trade higher as the first stocks out of the gate during rotations into newer areas will historically go on to become your leaders.
Subscribers to my MEM Edge Report were alerted to these leadership candidates earlier this week, and it's not to late to take advantage of the expected big moves in these cheap stocks.
