The Best Choices In Oil Stocks

The Best Choices in Oil Stocks

If you have to make a choice at this point about what stocks to keep, of what stocks to add to, or what stocks to enter, you have a few no-brainer choices.

The safest plays are to buy ETFs. With the SPDR Select Energy Sector ETF (NYSE:XLE), you get exposure to all the big name players with the global brands. This ETF is down about 25% from its 52-week high, and pays a 2.92% yield.

The other choice is to go with the Market Vectors Oil Services ETF (NYSE:OIH). I always like infrastructure plays because they are sometimes even more essential and can deliver larger long-term gains than the companies they service. The ETF is down 30% from its high and yields 2.75%.

Beyond that, you go with the big boys among oil stocks: Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), Chevron (NYSE:CVX), Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) or ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP).
