Oil prices are likely to be more or less flat this year, but that doesn't mean there are no ways to win with energy stocks, according to the energy research team at Stifel.
A number of companies in the sector are poised for gains, the broker says. Here are two energy producers and two energy-service stocks that Stifel says may reward shareholders handsomely.
A year of flat oil prices might feel like a welcome respite. Oil was volatile at the end of 2018: Prices in the U.S. dropped from nearly $77 per barrel to $42 in eight weeks from October to December, a 45% decline that was eerily similar to the market collapse that began in late 2014.
