Natural-gas-weighted stocks

The natural gas-weighted stocks that could rise with oil prices after the inventory report on January 18, 2018, based on the past four trading sessions’ correlations with oil prices are:

  • Gulfport Energy (GPOR) at 86.9%

  • Antero Resources (AR) at 67.9%
  • Range Resources (RRC) at 67.1%

Why Oil Is More Vital than Natural Gas to Natural-Gas-Weighted Stocks

These natural-gas-weighted stocks are from the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) with at least a 60% production mix in natural gas.

The natural-gas-weighted stocks that had the least correlation with oil (USO) (USL) prices in the past four trading sessions are:

  • WPX Energy (WPX) at 53.1%
  • EQT (EQT) at 15.5%

Oil’s impact

Natural gas supplies depend on US crude oil prices. In fact, the energy sector as a whole can follow trends set by crude oil. So, most of these natural-gas-weighted stocks showed a higher correlation with oil prices compared to natural gas in the past four trading sessions.
