Land-based oil drilling companies are gushing profits and this is creating a mammoth opportunity for oil services companies, says Dan Dicker, contributor at TheStreet. Dicker says the best way for individual investors to gain exposure to the sector is through the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Equipment & Services ETF (XES) which equal-weights its holdings. Dicker prefers the XES to the widely traded Market Vectors Oil Services ETF (OIH), which he says is far too overweight giants like Schlumberger and Halliburton.

At the time of publication, Dicker was XXX, but positions can change at any time.

Dan Dicker has been a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange with more than 25 years of oil trading experience. He is a licensed commodities trade adviser.

Dan is currently President of MercBloc LLC, a wealth management firm and is the author of "Oil's Endless Bid," published in March of 2011 by John Wiley and Sons.

Dan obtained a bachelor of arts degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1982.
