15 Energy Stocks Analysts Love the Most in 2021

Posted on Friday, June 25th, 2021 by MarketBeat Staff
There are more than 450 energy companies traded on public markets. Given the sheer number of pipeline companies, power plant operators, oil and gas production companies, and other energy stocks, it can be hard to identify which energy companies will outperform the market.

Fortunately, Wall Street's brightest minds have already done this for us. Every year, analysts issue approximately 8,000 distinct recommendations for energy companies. Analysts don't always get their "buy" ratings right, but it's worth taking a hard look when several analysts from different brokerages and research firms are giving "strong-buy" and "buy" ratings to the same energy stock.

This slide show lists the 15 energy companies with the highest average analyst recommendations from Wall Street's equities research analysts over the last 12 months.
