10 Revved-Up Oil Companies to Buy
There has been a lot of volatility in the crude oil and energy sectors recently, but it appears that the winners are now separating themselves from the losers.

Oil prices have rebounded about $10, or nearly 15%, from recent lows to once again approach $90 a barrel. There has been a lot of volatility in the crude oil and energy sectors in recent weeks, but it appears the winners are now separating themselves from the losers.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. This week, I have 10 oil, gas and consumable fuel companies to buy.

Here they are, in alphabetical order. Each one of these stocks gets an “A” or “B” according to my research, meaning it is a “strong buy” or “buy.”

Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE:COG) works in the U.S. and develops, exploits and explores oil and gas across the country. COG has been the biggest winner on this list, gaining 78% since the beginning of January.

Chevron (NYSE:CVX) provides administrative, financial, management and technology support to its clients internationally. CVX has gained 8% year to date, compared to a loss of more than 1% for the Dow Jones.

El Paso (NYSE:EP) is a natural gas company that deals with transmission, exploration and production sectors. EP is one of the biggest winners on this list, with a 39% return since the beginning of the year.
