    The IEA’s forecast bodes well for oil stocks, especially those that have underperformed during the rally over the past year. Two that stand out are Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) and Apache (NYSE:APA), since both have lost value even though oil has been red-hot. Because of that, they trade at dirt cheap valuations versus their peers. That underperformance doesn’t make sense given the growth these companies can deliver at much lower oil prices.

Hot Medical Stocks For 2019

At 65, you retire, dutifully sign up for Medicare Parts A, B and D and select a Medicare supplement (medigap) policy to help cover your out-of-pocket costs. It’s not cheap, but you’re confident you have the insurance you need.

SEE ALSO: 8 Steps to Picking the Right Medicare Plans

Then you decide to go back to work. Maybe you need the money. Maybe a company makes you an offer you can’t refuse. Bell-ringing bonus: The new job offers fabulous medical insurance as a fringe benefit.

Can you cancel your suddenly superfluous Medicare and medigap coverage and pocket hundreds of dollars a month in savings? Or will that threaten your ability to restart that coverage, when you really retire?

Those are the questions weighing on Barry Segulyev these days. The 75-year-old accountant lives in northern California and works an hour away in Reno, Nev. At age 65, he cut a deal with his then-employer, a nonprofit with fewer than 20 employees, to give up his employer health insurance and sign up for Medicare and medigap in exchange for some extra cash to help pay premiums. Medicare became his primary insurer.

Assets perceived as safe tended to do the same, but in the opposite direction.
