2 Chemical Stocks to Buy as Oil Prices Fall

As you may have noticed, energy prices are on the way down. Oil continues to hit new five-year lows, while natural gas has stalled as forecasts for a long cold winter havn’t materialized just yet. The dip has removed much of the wind from energy stocks' sails. For example, oil and gas producer EOG Resources Inc (EOG) has fallen 17% in the past six months. chemical-stocks_185 However, while some energy stocks have been hurt by lower energy prices, other companies have benefited tremendously. One such sector has is chemical stocks. Oil and gas are the feed stocks needed to do their business. Producers of various chemicals -- both specialized and commodity -- have been able to spend less on oil and natural gas. That should translate into beefy margins and ultimately big gains for investors.

Lower Costs For the Chemical Stocks

This trend should continue for the next few years. Hydraulic fracturing is unearthing an abundant supply of natural gas, oil and liquefied natural gas. And thanks to OPEC’s decision not to cut crude output, prices for all forms of oil continue to drop. Some analysts are even calling for $40 per barrel oil. The global oversupply of crude oil has U.S. West Texas Intermediate oil currently trading at its lowest levels since September 2009. European benchmark Brent crude is at its lowest point since 2010. Similarly, prices for natural gas have been trending lower over the last year or so. As this winter's anticipated Polar Vortex Part 2 has not yet materialized, natural gas prices have dropped about 17% in just the last two weeks. For chemical stocks, this new low-priced environment allows them to acquire materials at cheaper prices. Consider this: lower oil prices help drive down the price of propylene. The byproduct of oil refining is used making paints and other coatings. Lower oil also helps chemical companies that produce synthetic lubricants. Meanwhile, firms with facilities located in Europe and other international locations are able to use oil-derived naphtha to make ethylene at much cheaper rates. Read Article
