5 Winning Stocks To Buy As Oil Gushes Up

TM Editors Note: This article discusses one or more penny stocks and/or microcaps. Such stocks are readily manipulated; do your own careful due diligence.

Oil prices scaled higher on May 14 after the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) said that it expects global crude stockpiles to decline in the second half of 2020. Demand for crude is expected to pick up as some countries are poised to relax coronavirus restriction norms and lift lockdowns to allow factories and shops to reopen.

Needless to say, oil prices for quite some time have been under tremendous pressure as widespread lockdowns to counter the spread of coronavirus hit fuel demand, leaving ample supplies that countries found hard to store.

Brent crude rose by $1.94, or 6.7%, to $31.13 a barrel on May 14, and West Texas Intermediate crude was up $2.27, or 9%, to $27.56 a barrel.

Big Winners From Rise in Oil Prices

Rise in oil prices, of course, bodes well for energy players, particularly those involved in exploration and production. Gold prices are also expected to move north on higher oil prices. This is because as crude prices rise, prices of essential goods and commodities follow suit. And value of gold rises when inflation picks up. After all, it acts as a hedge against inflation.
