Energy stocks are also seeing an increase in interest as investors flood into oil and gas equipment and exploration stocks. Hurricane Michael is also providing a tailwind of sorts.


DO watch list diamond offshore


Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. provides contract drilling services to the energy industry worldwide. It provides services in the floater market, including ultra-deepwater, deepwater, and mid-water.

Higher crude prices lead to wider profit margins.

As crude oil prices climb, profit margins are having a tailwind effect in this industry group. Keep moving your stops higher.

The bottom line: The stocks on the watch list are gaining strength, as many of these candidates breakout of sound bases. This is happening as the major indices fade from all-time highs.

Therefore, we will stick with the premise that energy, and value will continue higher until something changes. We’ll move our stops higher along the way and let our winners run.

Futures are lower in pre-market trading. U.S. stock index futures are slightly lower on lingering concerns around slowing global growth, and producer price data readings on inflation.
