An article from the Roen Financial Report has been chosen as one of the 100 best submissions on a top financial websites. Seeking Alpha, one of the most useful investor communities, is billed as “the premier website for actionable stock market opinion and analysis, and vibrant, intelligent finance discussion.” Seeking Alpha is a web powerhouse with 1 million registered users. Over 320,000 articles have been submitted to Seeking Alpha from over 5,300 contributors, so getting listed as a top article is quite an honor.
Titled “What Is Driving Oil Prices and How Can Investors Benefit?” the article explains how oil prices have become less about supply and demand of oil itself, and more of a proxy for the world economy through the stock market. Oil as a retail commodity has become oil as a retail investment. This in turn has ramifications for alternative energy projects, which live or die on the price of fossil fuels.
If you are not yet on Seeking Alpha, I highly recommend it. The site has a strong focus on alternative energy companies, and is filled with valuable information from experts in many fields.
