March 9, 2017: The S&P 500 closed barely higher on the day up 0.08% and 1.89 points at 2,364.87. Separately the DJIA closed higher 0.01% on the day at 20,858.19, up approximately 2.46 points. Overall this was brought about by another strong performance by the healthcare sector, namely drug manufacturers. Although we saw crude oil make a massive drop on Wednesday, which continued Thursday, it appears this was an overreaction for companies in the space as a vast majority posted gains on the day. The only real industry weakness we saw in the S&P 500 on Thursday was in financial REITs and a few IT stocks; otherwise, the market was relatively flat.
Crude oil continued to fall, this time below what was thought to be a support level at $50. Oil closed 1.19% lower at $49.68.
Gold continued to drop 0.64% or $7.70, still holding barely above $1,200, at $1,201.70.
As we have said before, the healthcare sector helped pull the S&P up along with Oil and Gas stocks. This seems to be a big role reversal from these industries and how they performed earlier this week. Oil and gas stocks still ran higher despite crude oil breaking below the $50 mark on the day.

Energy sector earnings season starts rolling later this week, and as always, the party will kick off with the so-called big three oilfield services providers: Schlumberger Ltd. (SLB) , General Electric Co.’s (GE) Baker Hughes (BHGE) , and Halliburton Co. (HAL) .

Houston-based Halliburton Co. (HAL) stock fell during premarket trading Monday, April 23, despite reporting a 34% increase in revenue driven by expanding U.S. production, as the oilfield service provider experienced sand delivery challenges and took a charge related to its business in Venezuela.

You’ve heard all about the bottlenecks in domestic distribution. Now, you’ve heard Secretary Mnuchin talk about production. Still, we have to get this stuff to market. When it comes to energy, I have focused on oil services, hence my well-known long positions in both Action Alerts PLUS holding Schlumberger (SLB) , and Halliburton (HAL) .

Top Oil Stocks To Invest In 2018: ConocoPhillips(COP)

As things stand right now, analysts anticipate that at least some Iranian oil will come off the market as a result of the sanctions. That lost output would further tighten an oil market that suddenly has little margin for error thanks to red-hot demand and tame supply growth. That’s the recipe for higher oil prices and could make top-tier U.S. oil stocks Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) big winners in the coming years.

Oil prices have been on fire over the past year and recently topped $70 a barrel, which is the highest crude has been since late 2014. That rally in the oil market has helped fuel big-time gains in many oil stocks. Three that stand out are Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Hess (NYSE:HES), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) because each has risen more than 20% this year. They might still have additional upside from here given that all three plan on spending billions of dollars to buy back more of their stock.
