The recent market calm for energy stocks is being shattered by an outright meltdown in crude oil, which has crashed to a four-month low to test the $39-a-barrel handle. The decline, which has pushed the United States Oil Fund LP (ETF) (NYSEARCA:USO) down nearly 25% from its early June high, is being driven by the reappearance of oversupply fear and concerns over bulging inventories.

8 Giant Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse

The rumors of an OPEC-Russia supply freeze deal that boosted energy prices earlier in the year came to not. And with U.S. shale oil producers responding to a rebound in prices by increasing drilling activity, it’s no surprise that the black stuff is on the skids again.

While U.S. equities in general are resisting the selling pressure, energy stocks are taking it straight on the chin after many reported disappointing earnings last week.

Here are eight energy stocks that look ready to drop hard.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: BP plc (ADR) (BP)

080116-BP-stockBP plc (ADR) (NYSE:BP) shares have dropped below their 50-day moving average for the first time since late June, down some 10% from their July high. Investors were disappointed with the company’s second-quarter results last week, despite earnings of 23 cents per share beating the five-cent consensus estimate. Revenues fell 25.7% to $46.44 billion, below the $48.69 billion analysts were expecting.

The company will report its next results on Oct. 25 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of five-cents per share on revenues of $55 billion.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: Chevron Corporation (CVX)

080116-CVX-stockChevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) shares have fallen to test the lower end of its five-month trading range near $100.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM)

080116-XOM-stockExxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) shares are falling hard through last week’s lows on Monday, in what looks like a looming test of its 200-day moving average not touched since February. The company reported a top- and bottom-line miss last week, with earnings of 41 cents per share missing expectations for 64 cents on a 22% drop in revenue to $57.7 billion.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: ConocoPhilips (COP)

080116-RDS-stockRoyal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.A) shares have fallen below their 50-day moving average and are down more than 10% from their July high as a test of support near $48 looks likely. Last week, the company reported weaker-than-expected earnings of 13 cents per share (vs. 27 cents expected) on a 19.3% drop in revenues to $58.4 billion.

On Monday, analysts at RBC Capital Markets downgraded the stock on a cloudy risk outlook and debt concerns. The company will next report results on Nov. 1 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 35 cents per share on revenues of $57.8 billion.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY)

080116-OXY-stockOccidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:OXY) is barely hanging onto support from its five-month consolidation range near $74 as pressure builds against energy stocks. The comes despite some positive commentary on the stock by Barron’s and rumors the company could be a buyout target for XOM.

The company will next report results on Aug. 3. Analysts are looking for a loss of 19 cents per share on revenues of $2.8 billion.

Energy Stocks on the Verge of Collapse: Halliburton Company (HAL)

 080116-MRO-stock

Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO) shares have been resting on support at its 200-day moving average for the last two weeks after falling below its 50-day average. A breakdown here would mark the end of the post-February uptrend and put the March/April range near $10 in play — a 23% drop from here.

The company will next report results on Aug. 3 after the close. Analysts are looking for a loss of 25 cents per share on revenues of $1.1 billion. The August $13.50 MRO puts are up 46% for Edge Pro subscribers since they were recommended on July 26.
