What major factor do those two disparate sectors have in common?

Are energy sector dividends and share buybacks attractive approaches to attract investors?

Which sub-industry within the energy sector David likes now, due to a growing need for his products and services

Does the energy sector weighting within the S&P 500 mean it is understaffed compared to past weightings?

How has the ESG movement been optimistic for the energy sector?

Why the housing industry is on a declining knife this year despite rising demand.

David disagrees with other analysts that 2022 represents peak earnings in that sector and why he sees potential for further earnings growth.

Are the effects of institutional home purchases exaggerated?

What are the consequences of a higher interest rate for the housing market?

What is the right way to evaluate home builders that also shows you the right time to buy?
