With all our watch list entries being triggered last week I am running out of viable targets. I view any new entries with a 60-day life and I only want ones with a great chart. That limits the field.
Secondly I want to either buy huge reserves or a refiner with plenty of upside. We already have COP and VLO and I would not buy XOM with your money. The only real plays that might fill the bill are SU, SUN and AHC. Since we already have a full portfolio I am only adding one and that is SUN.
Sunoco is a refiner and enjoyed a monster +$16 bounce last week. After giving back $5 it is trying to find support at $75. Ideally one more drop to $72 would be perfect.
