3 Energy Stocks You'll Want To Own In 2020

WTI Light Crude Oil was stuck in a relatively tight $50-$60 trading range for the better part of 2019. However, oil's strong technical setup coupled with its supply demand dynamic implies that it can decisively break out above the $60 resistance level and could trade up into $70-$80 range throughout 2020.

Not all energy and oil services stocks are created equal, thus, I will discuss a few of my favorite names that are likely to outperform the market as oil moves higher throughout 2020.

Strong Technical Set-Up

Despite the relatively muted performance of many oil stocks crude oil has surged by roughly 37% over the past year. Nevertheless, oil got stuck in a relatively firm trading range of $50-$60 for much of the year.

However, the technical image looks more constructive lately as oil appears set to break out of its prolonged trading range. If we look at the one year chart, in Q4 we don't see the intense choppiness and volatility that we witnessed throughout the first 3 quarters of 2019. Q4's move appears much more stable, as oil has been on a steady climb higher into year end.

Moreover, we see that oil broke through the psychologically important resistance level of $60, then came back and retested the level as a support base, and has bounced higher since. As the global economic landscape continues to stabilize throughput 2020, oil could proceed higher into the $70-$80 price range. Naturally, this would be a very favorable phenomenon for many well positioned market leading energy/oil services companies.

Totally agree with the assessment, I'm looking for oil to get to $70.
