Venezuela's threat to cut off oil sales to the U.S. has heated up the oil picture, setting the paint to run and blur the edges of traders concerns. Exxon Mobile Corp. has taken court action in the U.S. and Britain and Denmark against Petroles de Venezuela SA, challenging Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's nationalization of a multibillion dollar oil project. An injunction was issued last week by a British court, freezing Petroleo's assets of about $12 billion. May delivery prices for light sweet crude spiked to a one month high of $94.72 before settling down to $93.41 a barrel.

New violence in Nigeria, the largest oil producer in Africa, has added to the nervousness of traders. A naval vessel escorting petroleum industry boats was attacked early Monday by unidentified gunmen. The concerns over these threats to overseas supply disruptions have taken precedence over the weakening U.S. economy. Gas prices slipped overnight to a national average of $2.953 per gallon however, the Energy Department and many analysts expect gas prices to bounce back this spring and reach new records -- near $3.501 per gallon.

The Gulf of Mexico has become a major area of oil & gas exploration and is expected to continue despite harsh operating procedures and remote location. These do not bother Bayou Bend Petroleum Ltd. (TSX-V: BBP) whose main focus is the shallow water shelf area. The company also holds lease interests Near Marsh Island, Louisiana and in several Federal OCS blocks offshore of Louisiana and Texas. Bayou Bend plans on three wells in the Marsh Island area and up to three in the OCS waters prospects with well depths ranging from 10,700 feet to 19,500 feet. "The 2008 program is very aggressive and the majority of the drilling focus will be on our premier asset, Marsh Island. The Company enjoys a strong cash position of over US $80 million and we look forward to a successful drill campaign." Said Clint Coldrun, Bayou Bend President and CEO.

Things are looking up for Dejour Enterprises Ltd. (Tier 2) (TSX-V: DEJ) as well. A market capitalization of $100 million and cash balance of $16 million leave the company well financed and in a strong position to meet current obligations. With global energy demand expected to escalate by 71% from 2003 to 2030 (EIA International Energy Outlook 2006), the anticipated production of the Piceance and Uinta Basis at the end of Q1 2008 and its enhancement of Dejour's cash base allows for the pursuit of other interests as well.

Consequences of pioneering development in previously unexplored or very lightly explored areas are the geological and reservoir risks, lack of infrastructure and negative implications of costs and time. Yet Canadian Imperial Vent (TSX-V: CQV) is proposing a oil & gas development on the Port au Port Peninsula in Newfoundland, Canada, the first for the geological basin and the province. The operations closest competitor is the Ellenberg fields of West Texas. Canadian Imperial Vent is also in the early stages of exploration and development of their accumulated interests in Southern Alberta.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors. The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 and #2 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to receive two Special Reports -- free when you sign up! Or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

It's also about adding stocks to your portfolio that have little or no effect against the state of the economy. The world as we know it has changed.
