Read MoreHide Full Article

Crude price determines the fate of almost all the companies belonging to the energy sector. The commodity price is now in its glorious days, making the outlook of Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure, Inc. (SOI - Free Report) , Core Laboratories Inc. (CLB - Free Report) and Evolution Petroleum Corporation (EPM - Free Report) bright. 

High Oil Price

The price of West Texas Intermediate crude is trading at more than $85-per-barrel mark, marking an extremely healthy oil pricing scenario, as it has recently touched a 10-month high mark. The recent decisions of Saudi Arabia and Russia to voluntarily extend oil production cuts until the end of the year, despite the commodity trading in bullish territory, are primarily aiding the crude rally.

The favorable crude price is making the exploration and production business extremely profitable. Higher upstream activities will increase demand for oilfield services since oilfield service players will guide explorers and producers in efficiently setting up oil and gas wells.

Given the backdrop, we are employing our proprietary Stock Screener to zero down on three prospective names that are well-poised to gain. One of the stocks sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), while the other two carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
