    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks.

Because of that, they trade for a dirt-cheap valuation versus their peers, making them intriguing options to consider.
