Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: CGG(CGG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Friday afternoon, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) and Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: GEOS).

    First up is French oil service firm CGG Veritas (CGG)
    . The Eurozone-based energy stock hasn’t exactly posted blockbuster performance in 2013, but investors who ignore CGG for the final stretch of the year could be making a big mistake. That’s because of a bullish technical pattern that’s emerging in shares right now.

    CGG spent most of the last eight months looking anything but bullish. But an ascending triangle pattern is changing that. The pattern is formed by horizontal resistance to the upside at $26, and uptrending support to the below shares. Basically, as CGG bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above $26. When that happens, traders have a buy signal.

    The ascending triangle pattern in CGG Veritas isn’t exactly textbook. That’s because the setup is forming at the bottom of a downtrend, rather than in the middle of an uptrend – but it’s a mistake to get caught up on the textbook pictures of what trading patterns are supposed to look like. On a move through $26, the trading implications are just as actionable.

    Refiners and downstream energy stocks have really gone to town as oil prices have listed lower in a relatively tight range. Phillips 66 (PSX) is among those winners.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After facing several challenges in 2016 that pushed down results, Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) bounced back big-time in the first quarter. The company trounced the consensus estimate by a whopping $0.51 per share, which was roughly 10 times higher than the $0.05 per share analysts expected.

    “As a technician, I see largely rangebound motion with big bounces being retraced and fades being bought at deep support,” she added. “As the markets opened, holding over $48.12 will likely spell a bullish run as several refineries are closed in the region, such as Phillips66 (PSX) , Shell Petrobras and Exxon (XOM) . The support tests that hold $47.3 will be buy zones more than likely. Overall, the current remains the same – a largely landlocked region with only temporary moves up or down until the rebalancing looks better.”
