CSOP writes that oil & gas companies’ performances are highly correlated with oil & gas prices and volumes, which are determined by various factors, making oil & gas company stocks one of the most volatile sectors. US oil & gas companies are cyclical, therefore benefiting from the increasing economic activities which push up demand and prices of oil & gas. In addition, political and weather uncertainties affect oil & gas companies’ business. Trading opportunities emerge from the high short-term volatilities of US oil & gas stocks, the firm says. As a result, the average daily turnover (ADT) of US oil & gas equity L&I products grew at CAGR of 22 per cent in 2015-20221.
Recent market concerns over energy shortage caused by geopolitical tensions in Ukraine fuel the oil & gas sector performance. Solactive US Large Oil & Gas Companies Index NTR, closely tracking the top 15 oil & gas companies listed on any stock exchange in the US with free float market capitalisation greater or equal to USD200 million gained 42.37 per cent year-to-date.
