Best Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

In 1956, geologist M. King Hubbert came up with what seemed to be an accurate prediction of “peak oil”, a theory regarding the maxing out of U.S. oil production that goes back to 1919, using statistical modeling. Hubbert projected that U.S. oil production would peak between 1965 and 1971.

With the onset of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo and ensuing energy crisis, Hubbert’s theory seemed dead on, mainly due to the United States’ dependence on imported oil increasing during the latter part of the 20th century. But here’s what really happened.

The red line shows Hubbert’s prediction. The green line represents actual U.S. oil production. Hubbert’s “Oilmageddon” never happened thanks to the shale revolution.

And the effect on the price of oil? We know that story from visiting the pumps.

    Friday was a strong day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks finished higher by 1% to 2%. Market participants focused their attention on the April jobs report, which included a drop in the unemployment rate to 3.9%, its lowest level in more than 17 years. Nonfarm payroll gains of 164,000 weren’t extremely strong, and some saw wage growth of just 2.6% as bad news for workers. Yet from many investors’ perspective, weak wage growth is actually a positive, as it indicates a lack of inflationary pressure that’s good for most stocks. Good news regarding several key individual companies also helped stoke favorable sentiment. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
