Portfolio of Oil and Gas Drilling Stocks

Oil drillers drill for oil and natural gas on land and offshore. The amount of business activity for these companies depends on the price of oil and natural gas. As prices rise there is more business activity as new wells are drilled and existing wells are upgraded.

Most drillers are cyclical and their stock prices track the price of oil and natural gas. So it is best to buy them at the beginning of a new price cycle when prices are low.

Here is a table of 18 well-known drilling stocks.
