Brinker's Suncor Energy, $25 Oil & Self-driving Cars

If you follow Bob Brinker and bought Suncor Energy (SU) when he recommended it in Marketimer in the "mid-$30's" back in 2009 and still hold it today per Bob's advice after years of under performance, then this article is something to consider.

5/23/17 Article: "Be warned: $25 oil is coming, and along with it, a new world order
  • "Oil demand will peak 2021-2020 and will go down 100 million barrels, to 70 million barrels within 10 years. And what that means, the new equilibrium price is going to be $25, and if you produce oil and you can't compete at $25, essentially you are holding stranded assets," Seba said.
  • "At $25 a barrel, that means deep-water, sands, shell oil, fields, most are going to be stranded, and also all the refineries and pipelines associated with these expensive oils are also going to be stranded. And that is going to reshape worldwide oil, geopolitics and so on."
The cost to extract oil from shale is coming down but this chart shows they all lose money today when oil sells below $29 per barrel.   Where does this chart bottom out?

Bob Brinker recommended buying Suncor Oil in his newsletter back in early 2009.  After trying to snag some cheap shares in his May 4, 2009 Marketimer in the "mid-$20s" Brinker chased the stock price in the next issue (June 2009) with a recommending to buy in the "low-$30s."  By my definition, that allowed his subscribers to buy at $33.34 (lower third of "the 30s") just before it dropped back to the mid-$20s.

Bob Brinker doesn't count this recommendation in his measured performance like I do with my "Explore Portfolio" for obvious reasons...  The graph above shows how poorly SU has done compared to the Total Stock Market fund that is the majority of his model portfolios.  IMHO (in my humble opinion) Brinker likes to recommend popular things in his "individual issues" so he can talk about them on the radio as a form of "advertising" but he doesn't track their performance since I've found they usually grossly under perform when taken as a group.
