Classic Investment Headline on Oil.

I was researching Chevron (CVX) stock a few weeks back and saw this list of headlines:

I thought it was such stereotypical headline in the investing world that I had to share. How does a journalist play low oil prices if there's a real risk they may rise in the near future? By playing both sides of the fence of course!

All joking aside, it should serve as a reminder of why you can't believe everything you read and beware of the risks inherent in the media. Sometimes it's more about having an article than it is about informing.
