Upstream stocks

Last week, Noble Energy (NBL) and Cimarex Energy (XEC) ranked second and third, respectively, on our list of top energy gainers. Notably, the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) was the second-least loser among energy sub-sector ETFs over this time period.

Oilfield services stock Tidewater (TDW) and downstream stock Marathon Petroleum (MPC) were other top gainers on our list of energy stocks, as shown in the table above.

All these energy stocks rose by small degrees. US crude oil active futures rose just 0.2% in the week ended October 20, which could be the reason.

In the next part, we’ll focus on top energy losers.
