Cory Fleck, host of the Korelin Economics Report, believes that we’re seeing a bottom in oil. However, he doesn’t think that we’re necessarily going to see a “screaming higher oil price.”
“If you look at the fundamentals, quite frankly, we’re in an oversupply environment right now,” he told the Investing News Network at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. “We are seeing demand increase, but supply — especially with Iran coming back on and OPEC countries not willing to cut really any supply yet — we are still going to see some pressure on oil.”
That said, he’s not looking for oil to drop below the $20 level. While he thinks there could be a bit more downside to come, Fleck believes that companies will eventually be forced to cut production, and that those on the demand side will continue to take advantage of lower oil prices.
Fleck also spoke about:
- More catalysts to watch for that could bump up oil prices
- Which types of junior oil and gas companies he sees weathering the storm the best
- Whether some of the larger oil and gas producers out there could be at risk under current market conditions
