As oil prices took a dive in recent years, energy stocks were not the only ones feeling the pain. Non-energy names with indirect exposure to energy also lost out. This, however, should be considered an opportunity for investors, according to one portfolio manager.
"We are finding attractive valuations in non-energy names that have been oversold in reaction to lower oil prices over the past year," said Craig Hodges, CEO of Hodges Capital Management.
Examples include home builders that have been unfairly punished due to their exposure to Texas, several of the regional banks, hotel operators, and other business that have indirect exposure to energy.
"In many cases, our bottom up research has uncovered opportunities in which the fundamentals are holding up much better than Wall Street's perception," Hodges said.
