Sightline Conversations: Dissecting the Current Oil Situation
It was another volatile week for investors; however, this time oil dominated the headlines due to its negative prices that resulted from an imbalance between buyers and sellers. In their latest conversation, Sightline’s Paul de Sousa and Warren Gerow examine the current state of oil prices along with other continued economic effects of COVID-19. Specifically, de Sousa and Gerow discuss:
- The factors that caused negative oil prices and how long it may persist
- What the new normal may look like once the economy reopens
- The climbing jobless claims and whether or not this increase will continue
- First-quarter earnings reports
- The potential of a second wave of COVID-19
In addition to economic news, de Sousa and Gerow also provide an update on Sightline’s alternative investments.
