Best Oil and Gas Companies for Oil Price Investing

Are you considering oil price investing? With the recent rise in oil prices, investors are expecting a boom in oil industry stocks. While the price of oil has risen over the past year, the talk of Iran sanctions is expected to keep the price of crude oil above $60 per barrel for some time. This benchmark price is bullish for US oil producers and will continue until oil demand and production are in balance. According to the analysts, global oil production was at its peak three years ago even though the supply of oil was lower and demand continues to be strong. Oil industry stocks are good long term investments, but what is the best way to buy these stocks?

Stock experts typically suggest buying stock in the large integrated oil companies to reduce risk. There are fewer companies solely involved in production and exploration and increases in oil prices make oil service companies more valuable.
  1. An alternative to individual oil stocks are Exchange Trade Funds (ETFs). ETFs are an

efficient option to invest in oil stocks and are effectively a basket of stocks or track an oil index. The best advantage of investing in ETFs is that you are diversified and not required to invest in just one single company stock. Some popular Oil ETFs include the PowerShares DB Oil Fund (DBO) and the Brent Oil Fund (BNO).
