    If one buys energy stocks right now they're way too late. Like ^ said, he's already made good gainz.

    Seems to me investing in fossil fuels is possibly one of the worst markets. It's very competitive, where none of the participants have a "better" product than anyone else, so depending on when a company acquired their oil, they might have to lose a lot of profit to keep up with everyone else's prices. The product is finite, and getting access to more often results in protest, thereby threatening your stock should the protesters succeed. It's extremely volatile, where things like government regulations, a pandemic, or a war will basically flip the value overnight. It's also a mistake-prone industry, where the companies can be pretty heavily sued for oil spills. Last but not least - people are fed up with rising energy costs and they're moving toward either alternative or more efficient solutions.

    However, if you're invested in solar energy, I'm sure there's much to gain there, as demand seems to be going up. Solar panels don't last as long as people think they do, so even those already on solar will continue to buy more panels as replacements. Same goes for wind except that's a lot less popular.

    If you play Cinebench 24/7, then 13900k is the wrong choice. Buy Threadripper instead ;)

    You can buy and sell whenever you like. Short-term in fossil fuels at the start of the year was the right call.

    At the start of the year, I also bought 2 funds

    • Global (traditional) energy fund (Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Equinor etc)
    • Renewable energy fund (First Solar Inc Technology, NextEra Energy Inc, Ormat Technologies etc)
    As of today
    • Traditional energy is up 37%
    • Renewables is down -5%

    Unless you're connected to the Illuminati or a time machine, investing in fossil fuels is effectively gambling. It's easy to say you made the right call betting everything in a game of poker when all you had was a pair, and won anyway. If you invested in 2019-2021, you would have basically only broken even until now. If you invested in 2014, you would still be at a loss. If you invested in a major solar manufacturer in that time frame, you'd have tripled your value.

    So yeah, you happened to luck out, but it's exactly that: luck.

    It wasn't luck, it was reasonably clear that demand and energy prices were going up post-covid and tensions over Ukraine were already growing. Even in Jan. there were plenty of solid forecasts of high energy prices by the end of 2022.

    But that's beside the point. I was just pointing out that you can buy and sell when you like, these things are not necessarily long-term investments. Oil is fairly cyclical sector. Renewables are on a totally different track.
