Last week was one of the best we've seen in terms the performance of our entire portfolio of Oklahomabased stocks.
The ratio of winners (stocks that posted gains over the week) versus losers was about 7-to-1.
Energy stocks did well. Financials were solid. The few local service and tech stocks were fine.
The best performer, for the second straight week, was Mid-Con Energy Partners, a Tulsa oil and natural gas producer that focuses on the Mid-Continent and Permian Basin regions.
On the heels of a more than 40 percent gain, MCEP shares added more than 12 percent last week.
It's an impressive trend, tempered by the fact that the stock closed Friday at the low, low price of $1.87.
From our handful of local laggards, the worst of the bunch was Sonic Corp.
Shares of the Oklahoma City-based drive-in restaurant slipped 6 percent last week before closing at $26.44.
It's a little surprising because Sonic just a couple of weeks ago posted a pretty solid earnings report, topping analysts' profit expectations. After unveiling its earnings, SONC shares rallied a bit.
The stock continues to trade in a range midway between its 52-week high ($30.05) and 52-week low ($22.11).
Volume has been up in recent trading days, but the strongest volume has come on days that SONC has posted gains.
While we avoid stock recommendations in this space, we are fans of the Ched 'R' Peppers.
