Report on Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Barclays-and Thankfully a Ray of Hope With Black Gold, Domestic Divas Like Paradigm Oil (PDGO)

With big banks under the gun, it’s no wonder why the wealthiest investors are buying oil in the face of the flailing Blue Chips. So finding a microcap stock like Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc. (PDGO) could not have come at a better time for Americans.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) - With Goldman Sachs (GS) currently under inquiry for alleged fraud, this created a snowball effect in last Friday markets impacting most financial mortgage companies. This of course includes the likes of Citigroup Inc. (C) and Bank of America (BAC), with Citigroup taking a major hit, falling 5.20% trading on a whopping 1. 864 billion shares in volume! Although this is just the beginning for Goldman Sachs, we believe the market will bounce today and should signs of investor confidence and recovery.

Find out why some of the wealthiest people in the world invest in oil and gas.

The price of oil price is back on the rise - hitting an almost 18-month high in the last 30 days. Many analysts are reporting oil will be back at $100 per barrel before the end of the year. Oil prices have increased by almost 15% since OPEC's last meeting in Angola where the production quotas were kept unchanged.

Even Goldman Sachs like Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and Société Générale purported optimistic forecasts for demand recovery this year. In addition, Goldman Sachs and Barclays Capital predict a fall in Non-OPEC supply due to underinvestment and decline of mature fields.

Oil Prices Expectations in 2010 and 2011

Barclays states oil prices are likely to stay in the range of $80-$90, while other Barclays' analysts state, "If Asian demand can grow at such rapid rates when prices are in the $70 to $80 range, then prices cannot stay in that range for much longer". Considering the Joint Oil Data Initiative (JODI) is quoted as saying Asian demand for oil will increase by more than 2 million barrels per day, what is the logical conclusion? What most people don't realize is the depth of industries and products that rely on oil and gas. Oil is involved in nearly every aspect of manufacturing - from the production of chemicals, plastics and detergents to medicines, building materials and even clothing. Petroleum-based products make up a significant portion of the materials Americans use every day.

Why do the wealthiest people in the world invest in oil and gas?

It comes down to the basic economics of supply and demand. Energy is in high demand throughout the world. The global economy is growing. And domestic consumption is growing.

What does this means for the average American investor?

Take a look at microcap companies like Paradigm Oil and Gas, Inc. (traded on the OTCBB under the symbol PDGO). Less than a month ago AFYG was sitting at $0.40 per share. We've watched this domestic diva steadily rise with the release of great news, including their 100% property acquisition with over 10 million barrels of probable reserves. PDGO closed last Friday at $1.37. That's black gold with a solid ROI of over 200%.

How does the normal investor see a 100% return on oil?

In our opinion, it looks like PDGO is heading there in a hurry. But they are not the only domestic, oil and gas company that is showing some great investment opportunity in the OTCBB energy sector. With more good news expected, PDGO will continue to generate significant investor interest in the company. Our recommendation is to keep PDGO on your radar and watch this week's reactions across the web as the stock continues to move north.
