The holidays are upon us, which means it's time to look ahead to 2019.
Stephen 'Sarge' Guilfoyle is a contributor for Real Money. He talked to TheStreet about his top trades of 2018, why he's now positioned defensively and what he expects from 2019.
"Regular people need to be defensive," Guilfoyle warned.
"First and foremost, you want to make sure that you have a revenue stream...you want to make sure that you have some dividends in there," said Guilfoyle. "That's why I'm going out on a limb...I need some energy in my portfolio."
Guilfoyle clarifies that his portfolio positioning may not reflect other investors. He then went on to break down how an investor can play the energy space if they, too, feel like they need to get into it.
For those looking to add to their portfolios, Guilfoyle gave out some of the names that he's currently long in. These names include
- Exxon (XOM) - Get Report
- British Petroleum (BP) - Get Report
- Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A)
