NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I really love the energy stocks right now. I honestly do not know why they are breaking loose all over the place as crude oil prices moderate. However, it seems to me that ever since Janet Yellen was nominated to succeed Ben Bernanke at the Federal Reserve, it wasn't gold blasting off, it was the oil stocks.Oil, like gold, is a commodity. It is an inflation hedge and it has an inverse relationship with the dollar, which has been selling off ever since the Yellen announcement.
