A temporary glut in supply is causing a massive bust in prices.
And this is only the beginning.

Checking on the Oil Space Real Money Pro($)

Airlines are down on oil's rise and Chesapeake Energy (CHK) up over 5% after it was added to B. Riley's February focus list, which includes analysts' "best idea" for the month. These mid-majors I believe are the sweet spot to invest in the beaten down E&P space right now. They have financial flexibility via the majors but the faster growth of the smaller players. Should also be able to pick up assets on the cheap if oil stays depressed and less financial stable players have to initiate fire sales. Others like Devon Energy (DVN) and EOG Resources (EOG) also have held up well consider the carnage among their small-cap brethren.
Tuesday's meaningful lessons could pay off in long run.

CHK was upgraded from Neutral to Outperform, Credit Suisse said. Valuation call, based on a $24 price target. 
No way yet to be bullish on oil services.
