I have wondered if there are some oil stocks that are trying to bounce off bottom. Who knows.

But those interested in oil might want to have a look at payout ratios and dividend history (including increases in dividends) for stocks such as XOM and CVX. I think XOM and CVX are considered Dividend Aristocrats.

Dividend investors want to get paid to wait so they look for stocks that might seem boring but that keep putting that check in the mail -- quarter after quarter, year after year, decade after decade. If they catch such stocks at a relative low, there can be the possibility of taking a nice gain later, after waiting around, cashing checks for a while.

Traders and investors have very different philosophies sometimes. It might be time for both to have a look.
