10 Great Stocks To Own Because Oil Prices Have Surged: Goldman Sachs

The latest OPEC standoff that is keeping oil prices at lofty levels opens the door for investors to potentially profit from several oil-related stocks, according to Goldman Sachs energy analyst Neil Mehta.

Mehta outlined 10 oil stocks he is bullish on in a new piece of research on Tuesday: (1) Occidental Petroleum (OCY); (2) ExxonMobil (XOM); (3) Ovintiv (OVV); (4) Diamondback Energy (FANG); (5) ConocoPhillips (COP); (6) EQT Corporation (EQT); (7) Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD); (8) Devon Energy (DVN); (9) Hess (HES); and (10) Schlumberger (SLB).

  • Company-specific stories: HES; SLB
