Pros' Top Oil-Services Stock Plays

A few oil-services stocks appear likely to remain profitable despite what crude prices do in the near term, TheStreet CIO Stephanie Link said Monday.

"Companies still print money at this level, and even if oil were to go to $80, which I don't think it will, but if it does, these companies still print money," she said.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Link said that she liked Occidental and National Oilwell Varco.

Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners said that equities was his preferred energy play "because the expectations are so low for earnings they've underperformed."

Top of his list were Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Basic Energy Services.

Terranova also said of Baker Hughes: "I think they have the potential to beat here on earnings."

"The oil-service sector is where I'd look," he added.

Rosecliff Capital's Mike Murphy saw potential in the oil trade.

"I think oil has run up high and is going to go lower, trade back into the mid-90s, and I think you can play that," he said, also adding that he was long energy stocks.

"I Think you have a big upside there," he added.
