ConocoPhillips (COP) is a preferred investment in the energy sector as energy prices continue to recover. The energy company took a major hit during the last energy bear market which resulted in a dividend cut. But oil prices are in an upward trend, the company has reduced operating costs and divested non-core assets to delever its balance sheet. I consider ConocoPhillips to be an excellent choice to play a continued recovery in oil prices.
ConocoPhillips did have a hard time in 2014-2016 when energy prices fell to their lowest levels in more than a decade. As a matter of fact, ConocoPhillips was one of the hardest hit oil majors, which was largely due to its heavy reliance on the upstream business to drive profit and free cash flow growth.
