It’s been a volatile year thus far for the oil sector which was up almost 45% this year, and investing in any oil and gas stock has been extremely profitable this year.
The oil sector blew expectations out of the water in 2021 through a year riddled with economic challenges and uncertainties posed by the pandemic. Analysts are increasingly optimistic that prices will stay strong through the summer.
- Bank of America analyst Francisco Blanch believe oil prices could spike above $100 a barrel next year if demand trends keep improving.
- Morgan Stanley oil strategist Martijn Rats recently increased his long-term forecast to $60/bbl Brent and sees the potential for spikes to $80/bbl in the near term.”
- Goldman Sachs likewise expects strong oil prices to last.
- Citi thinks oil prices could rise above $80 this summer.
As the black gold recovered along with the economy, consider adding these four oil stocks to your portfolio this summer.
