Best Canadian Stocks To Watch For 2019: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has worked hard to distinguish itself from other oil companies over the past few years by shifting its focus from growing production to increasing shareholder value. That led it on a path to shed high-cost assets so that it could slim down to a company that could thrive at lower oil prices.

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has been one of the best-performing oil stocks of 2018, up nearly 30% year to date, easily outpacing the less than 4% return of the S&P 500. Meanwhile, shares are up almost 64% in the past year, smashing the 14% gain by the broader market. And despite its impressive outperformance, we “still see upside potential for our shares,” according to CEO Ryan Lance. The company is backing up that statement, too, by significantly expanding its share buyback program. Those buybacks could give the oil giant’s stock the fuel it needs to continue its market-crushing run.
