Energy Long, Celsius Short

Those that have followed know that I run an Absolute Return model at Bustamante Capital LLC – we like making money in any market environment long or short. 

This model allows me to be patient with conviction ideas long, like energy, then also to be short overvalued names like Celsius. 

We’re going to break down Energy longs and the Celsius short in this post. 



Energy Longs

I’ve like energy names really since the start of Q2 and there have been a few reasons why they’ve been, and continue to be, no-brainer layup longs. 

Celsius Short

Part of the portfolio model I run for myself and clients is using an active long/short strategy within the core strategies to generate returns. 

Think of this like having capital at work and being patient in quality ideas (like energy longs) and then being able to pick-off smaller risk returns to add to the overall portfolio revenues. 

Celsius fit the bill on this and I released a one-pager to DeltaOne members on September 6. So let’s break this down a bit. 


Final Word

I like to buy value and quality themes and sit back and wait because great ideas take time. 

The energy names have a long way to go which is great for me, so on technical pullbacks I made add but this started months ago so we’ll have to see.
