Factors to Consider Before Investing in Oil Stocks

The most significant factor to consider is the time horizon. Investors looking for regular income in the form of dividend payouts should invest in stocks of large oil companies. Such companies are less susceptible to frequent movements in oil prices and other factors and generate a good dividend yield.

On the other hand, the new and upcoming oil stocks can be targeted for the long-term growth of capital as future prospects of oil stocks are equally attractive. In either case, investors must remain cautious that a single event, like the attack on Saudi Arabian oil fields, can cause major and never-before swings in oil prices and oil stocks.

Which Oil Stocks Should I Buy?

 To make the choice of oil stocks easier, we have listed a few of the top oil companies and their stocks. You can make the investment decision based on your portfolio requirement and fit.

Oil is one of the riskiest commodities. Therefore, investors must be vigilant of the risk exposure related to investing directly in oil, or indirectly in ETFs or mutual funds. Similarly, you can also reduce your risk exposure by investing in the stocks of oil companies or oil stocks.
