A Solid Bet In The Beleaguered E&P Space

After almost a year and a half of chaos, the oil market seems to be going through a period of relative calm.

For most people that is good news, but if current levels turn out to be the new normal it means that some trading and investing ideas that were formed on the drop need to be rethought.

A lot of smaller exploration and production (E&P) companies looked like screaming value as their stock prices followed and, in many cases, even exceeded the collapse in oil prices, but that analysis was based on the belief that oil would recover a good portion of those losses fairly quickly.
