Bryn Talkington reacts to Devon Energy Q1 results

Commenting on the earnings report and the broader energy trade, Requisite’s Bryn Talkington said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell”:

Shanghai and Beijing are closed. That will open. The draining of the SPR is finite. U.S. oil production is a million barrels per day lower than it was in 2019. So, I think this trade has legs for foreseeable future and these are consistent high-quality earnings that people should own in their portfolios.

She expects the Ukraine war to keep oil prices up, which will continue to help the likes of Devon Energy. The stock is now up nearly 30% for the year.
