Top 5 Oil Stocks To Invest In 2019

As compared to Gastar’s (GST) recent conference call, this presentation at the Johnson Rice Energy Conference was about as upbeat as it gets. Which explains the current $1.50 pop of its preferred GST-A price and the $1.86 rise of GST-B. The screenshot of the Key Investment Criteria set the table nicely, highlighted by recent strong drilling results, to be covered later in the article, 48% and 36% IRR’s in WEHLU, lots of oil left to drill, and a strong relationship with ARES, its new capital provider, and major equity holder.

Net production is on the rise again as pictured below:.

    Now, I haven’t dabbled in U.S. shale oil or in the permian basin since I extracted myself from Apache (APA) several months ago after an epic fight in the name of capital preservation. But The Wall Street Journal ran a piece last week explaining that due to already-mentioned distribution bottlenecks, Permian-basin oil prices had fallen below $60 a barrel despite the fact that WTI futures were trading above $70.

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

    The stock market stayed in a pretty narrow range on Thursday, climbing early in the session but then slowly drifting lower through the afternoon hours. In the absence of major news, investors largely looked forward to key events like trade negotiations among the world’s largest economies. Other financial markets saw mixed moves as well, with 10-year Treasury yields climbing above 3.1% while oil prices stayed comfortably above $70 per barrel. Despite the quiet day, some companies had good news that pushed their shares sharply higher. World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE), Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK), and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were among the best performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

    Friday was a down day on Wall Street, but losses were generally small, and the market closed well above its lowest levels of the session. Initially, investors seemed concerned about further trade tensions between the U.S. and China, but upon further reflection, they appeared to draw comfort from considerable fundamental strength from key sectors of the industrial economy. Even with the overall market recovering from earlier weakness, some stocks still posted substantial declines. Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL), Global Blood Therapeutics (NASDAQ:GBT), and First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By John Bromels, Jeremy Bowman, and Daniel Miller]

They came back withMagellan Midstream Partners(NYSE:MMP),Home Depot(NYSE:HD), andFord Motor Company(NYSE:F). Here’s why they chose the way they did.

    Often a high yield is an indication of a stock that’s facing some sort of trouble — but not always. If you take the time, you can find high-yield stocks worth buying if you look in the right places. For example, decidedly low-techLamar Advertising Company (NASDAQ:LAMR), beaten-up midstream playerMagellan Midstream Partners, LP(NYSE:MMP), and renewable power-focused TerraForm Power, Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP) come from vastly different industries. However, each of these high-yield stocks has a solid business and good growth prospects.

Top 5 Oil Stocks To Invest In 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Back in 2011, Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) elected to spin off Marathon Petroleum. At the time, much of the reasoning for the split was that both entities would garner higher valuations than as an integrated company. Also, by separating them, both could best allocate capital to grow shareholder value.

    That ability to organically discover new shale plays has saved it a ton of money. The company was able to quietly gobble up 50,000 acres in Oklahoma over a four-year period for just $750 an acre. Contrast that with rivalsDevon Energy(NYSE:DVN) andMarathon Oil(NYSE:MRO). Devon spent $1.9 billion to buy Felix Energy in late 2015 for the company’s 80,000 acres in Oklahoma, paying a whopping $23,750 an acre. Meanwhile, Marathon paid $888 million for PayRock Energy and its 61,000 acres in the state, which amounted to roughly $14,500 an acre. EOG’sdeepknowledge of shale helps it know where to look so it can lock up land for next to nothing before rivals even know what’s there.

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

    The stock market largely gained ground on Friday, although triple-digit gains for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were offset somewhat by modest losses in the Nasdaq Composite. European Union tariffs were set to take effect today on more than $3 billion in U.S. goods, representing the latest escalation in trade tensions between the U.S. and trade partners across the globe. Yet investors were ready for a break after several days of poor performance for the overall market, and good news from several companies helped set a positive mood on Wall Street. Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), WillScot (NASDAQ: WSC), and Del Taco Restaurants (NASDAQ:TACO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
