Gaming Oil Earnings

After ConocoPhillips missed estimates, how should you game energy, with three more major oil companies set to release earnings by this Friday?

Here's what lies ahead:
Thursday: Noble, Exxon
Friday: Chevron

Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Sankey says the whisper on the Street is that Exxon will beat.

Trader Tim Seymour is a buyer of ConocoPhillips which sold-off in the wake of earnings.

Trader Steve Grasso tells the desk his clients are bullish on oil services stocks. “They’re the only ones that are raising prices right now. There’s a back log for rigs. There’s a back log for fracking stations. That why Baker Hughes popped on Wednesday and I expect that to pass along to all the oil services names,” Grasso says.
