oil gas pumpjack 6 Energy Stocks Out of SteamEnergy stocks are all the rage right now. Many pay big dividends, crude oil prices are rising — hey, what’s not to like?

Well don’t be fooled into thinking all stocks in this sector are equal. Many oil service companies, contractors, or suppliers in the energy business aren’t faring so well right now.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. And this week, I’ve identified six energy  stocks to sell.

Each one of these stocks gets a “D” or “F” according to my research, meaning it is a “sell” or “strong sell.”
