Summary

  • The S&P/TSX Capped Energy Index gained 69 per cent in the past one year, propelled by the recovering oil prices.
  • Suncor stock has fuelled the Canadian energy sector with a rise of over 56 per cent in the last six months.
  • Stocks of Enbridge climbed by about 23 per cent in the last six months.

Higher oil prices have largely kept energy sector investors intact, and the gradual recovery in consumption is likely to improve the stocks in the upcoming months. Oil-producing nations have also been guiding demand and supply according to the global fuel demand.

After witnessing an all-time low in 2020, oil prices are looking quite stabilized. The Saudi Arabia-led oil production cut for the current month has been well received by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and affiliates.

Meanwhile, oil analysts are optimistic about energy stocks continuing their gaining spree through the second quarter of 2021. The S&P/TSX Capped Energy Index surged over 69 per cent in one year.  The top constituents of the Canadian energy sector, Suncor Energy Inc (TSX:SU) and Enbridge Inc (TSX:ENB), also registered double-digit growth in the past one year.
