Wyatt Research Week-in-Review: January 18-January 24

One question is on the mind of every investor: what’s ahead for crude oil and energy prices?
It’s a simple question that’s difficult to answer. Of course, everyone here at Wyatt Investment Research has an opinion.
Some of our analysts and advisors expect oil will rebound quickly…heading back to $60 or $80 per barrel. They’re more than happy to “buy the dip” and add exposure to the energy sector.
Others of us – myself included – think the decline in oil prices will continue. I think its possible that oil will fall to $23 per barrel – a huge drop from the current price.
You might find that confusing. However, I encourage our contributors to conduct their own research and to share their opinions. Often, we’re in complete agreement. Occasionally, we have diverse views and outlooks. Oil is clearly one of those topics.
Of course, oil wasn’t the only major investment news this week. As always, our team was closely following the markets and the start of earnings season.
Below are some of the top stories this week. For our full coverage, visit www.wyattresearch.com.
