The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 34.72 points, or 0.17%, today to 20810.32. That’s the 12th record close of 2017. If the Dow can reach a new record high two more days, it will tie its 1987 12-day streak.

The S&P 500 climbed 0.99 points, or 0.04%, to 2363.81, its second-highest close in history. The Nasdaq fell 25.12 points, or 0.43%, to 5835.51, its fourth-highest close ever.

Biotech stocks weighed on the Nasdaq, while Tesla (TSLA) also tumbled on its earnings report (and got at least one downgrade).

However a gain in oil prices helped push up other stocks, along with upbeat earnings reports Transocean (RIG) beat expectations, and Kohl’s (KSS) results weren’t as bad as many feared.

While he didn’t fill in every detail about what lies ahead, he made sure investors knew that the company’s future looks bright.

    Williams Companies is in the midst of a major transition. It recently agreed to acquire the rest of its MLP, Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ), in a $10.4 billion deal. The pipeline giant is making this acquisition so that it can more easily finance the expansion projects Williams Partners has under development. The transaction would allow it to free up some cash flow and improve its credit metrics, giving it more financial flexibility.

    The stock market stayed in a pretty narrow range on Thursday, climbing early in the session but then slowly drifting lower through the afternoon hours. In the absence of major news, investors largely looked forward to key events like trade negotiations among the world’s largest economies. Other financial markets saw mixed moves as well, with 10-year Treasury yields climbing above 3.1% while oil prices stayed comfortably above $70 per barrel. Despite the quiet day, some companies had good news that pushed their shares sharply higher. World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE), Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK), and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were among the best performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

    IEZ is also a top-heavy fund. Just two stocks — Schlumberger NV (NYSE: SLB) and Halliburton Inc. (NYSE: HAL) — combine for almost 26 percent of the fund's weight. Underscoring the correlation to oil prices, IEZ has a three-year standard deviation of 30 percent, indicating this ETF is far more volatile than standard diversified energy funds.

Top 10 Oil Stocks To Buy Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last fall, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) outlined its three-year operating plan, anticipating that it could increase production at a 5% compound annual growth rate assuming oil averaged $50 a barrel. While the return to a growth trajectory was nice to see, its forecast paled in comparison to rivals like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), which both project double-digit oil production growth rates over the next few years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is one of a growing number of oil producers that is reevaluating its drilling plans in the Permian Basin because of the region’s looming pipeline shortage. Among the options it’s considering is redeploying at least some of its resources out of the Basin until new pipes start up toward the end of next year. While that could affect its growth prospects in the near term, it also might provide the company with the opportunity to enhance its longer-term growth potential in the region.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short rose slightly to 21.33 million from the previous level of 21.01 million. Shares were trading at $64.79, within a 52-week range of $42.27 to $71.71.

  • [By ]

    For nearly five years, I held shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) in a dividend growth strategy portfolio I manage for my clients. I covered the stock for StreetAuthority quite a while back and I have always been a fan of this company. However, when “Oilmageddon” (caused by plunging crude prices) hit just about every publicly traded energy stock available, even a high quality name like ConocoPhillips couldn’t escape injury.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) VP Glenda Mae Schwarz sold 6,763 shares of the company’s stock in a transaction that occurred on Friday, May 25th. The stock was sold at an average price of $65.04, for a total value of $439,865.52. Following the sale, the vice president now directly owns 10,182 shares of the company’s stock, valued at approximately $662,237.28. The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which can be accessed through the SEC website.

Top 10 Oil Stocks To Buy Right Now: Whiting Petroleum Corporation(WLL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL) bounded upward more than 55% for the quarter, fueled by rising crude prices and its strong first-quarter results. After struggling to scrape by on lower oil prices, Whiting’s cash flow has surged this year, providing it enough money to fund its drilling program with more than $100 million to spare during the first quarter.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Whiting Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: WLL) was reiterated as Overweight and the target price was raised to $56 from $45 (versus a $50.78 close) at KeyBanc Capital Markets.

Top 10 Oil Stocks To Buy Right Now: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That efficiency was evident in the first quarter when companies like Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) drilled record-breaking wells. In Devon Energy’s case, it completed two of the highest-rate wells ever drilled in the nearly 100-year history of the Delaware Basin. Those wells, when combined with some prolific ones in the STACK shale play, enabled Devon to produce a huge profit in the first quarter. Marathon Oil, meanwhile, drilled record-setting wells in two formations of the Bakken region as well as several high-rate ones in the STACK, which fueled strong profits for the driller in the first quarter. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After plunging 40% over the final three months of 2018, oil prices snapped back to start 2019, rebounding 18% for the month. That rally in the oil market sent most oil stocks higher, including shares of producers Denbury Resources (NYSE:DNR), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), and Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ:FANG), which all rallied more than 10% for the month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. 

  • [By Zacks]

    Oil production is surging in Canada but producers are far from happy as their profit margin is sinking and they are striving to stay competitive with their U.S. counterparts. While upstream companies like Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) and others are enjoying the shale boom and rebound in prices in the United States, their Canadian counterparts like Cenovus Energy Inc. (NYSE: CVE) and others are thinking of reducing production. The primary reason behind this is the shortage of pipelines in the country. In short, pipeline construction in Canada has failed to keep pace with rising domestic oil production – the heavier sour variety churned out of the oil sands –  resulting in infrastructural bottlenecks. This has also forced producers to give away their products at a discounted rate.

    Companies in this region have had more measured growth plans because of the lack of pipelines.
