Thanks for the response, Denny. Great point about the loooooong-term flattening versus a sharp downward move and the associated relevance (lack of relevance) to use of the BMW Method.

XOM seems to have historically been one of the best-managed oil behemoths, but oil does have huge headwinds still so probably not worth me using much investing time trying/hoping to time a big shift in crude oil prices.

Also, glad to have come across Ryan Air (RYAAY) in the discussion, as I hadn't ever heard of that airline, but it does seem a bit intriguing. Ironically enough, the present low crude oil prices could have positive impacts on margins for airlines. RYAAY does look like a better potential candidate for a BMW Method style trade.

Possibly eyeing SWKS for a medium/long-term trade in the near future, 16-year looks better than 20 with the dot-com bubble further in the past
