There's value within the energy sector.Slowing global economic growth and demand concerns have WTI crude oil prices down more than 20% from a year ago. Oil investors were hoping for much higher prices in 2019 than the mid $50s per barrel, and the energy sector has once again lagged the market significantly this year. Bank of America analyst Doug Leggate recently lowered his oil price forecast for the second half of 2019 from $68 per barrel to $63, but Leggate says there are still plenty of value opportunities among oil stocks today. Here are nine oil stocks Leggate recommends.Exxon Mobil Corp. (ticker: XOM)Leggate says Exxon has the strongest project pipeline of any oil major, including developments in Guyana and the U.S. Permian Basin. Exxon management has a five-year plan in place to double free cash flow by 2025. Leggate says investors can enjoy the stock's 4.5% dividend while they wait for that cash flow to come rolling in. Exxon is his top stock pick among oil majors, and…

The Last Truly Underdeveloped Oil Frontier In The Middle East - OilPrice.com

Image
Over and above the petty party squabbling that characterises the politics of Iraq’s semi-autonomous northern region of Kurdistan, it can safely be conjectured that at least two groups of people were delighted at the appointment of Masrour Barzani on 11 June as prime minister of the region’s government (the KRG): the Barzanis and the Russians. The Barzanis had three reasons for jubilation: Masrour was now prime minister, his cousin, Nechirvan was president, and the former president – and father of Masrour – Masoud Barzani remains the driving power behind the throne. The Russians had just one reason – but a big one – for celebration: the Barzani family is “highly accommodating to any suggestion that is good for the Barzani family,” as one senior source who works closely with Iraq’s Oil Ministry told Oilprice.com last week. “This means it’s still open season for Russia in Kurdistan, which is perhaps the last truly under-developed oil and gas frontier in the Middle East,” he added.An indi…

Whether it was the Big Bang, Midas or God himself, we don’t really need to unlock the mystery of the origins of gold when we’ve already identified an asteroid worth $700 quintillion in precious heavy metals.If anything launches this metals mining space race, it will be this asteroid--Psyche 16, taking up residence between Mars and Jupiter and carrying around enough heavy metals to net every single person on the planet close to a trillion dollars.The massive quantities of gold, iron and nickel contained in this asteroid are mind-blowing. The discovery has been made. Now, it’s a question of proving it up.NASA plans to do just that, beginning in 2022.  Of course, says veteran miner Scott Moore, CEO of EuroSun Mining  “The ‘Titans of Gold’ now control hundreds of the best-producing properties around the world, but the 4-5 million ounces of gold they bring to the market every year pales in comparison to the conquests available in space.”In the decades to come, if you want to be a gold tita…

"So, for example, that includes refined products. We import a lot of gasoline into New York, right? New York Harbor and Philadelphia and all those places. It's not because we can't make the gasoline, it's because the refineries up there aren't linked with enough pipeline capacity to the Gulf Coast, so we can't get it from here to there,” he said.
