The energy sector constitutes many businesses, be it mining, renewable energy or oil and gas. The energy sector is undoubtedly a crucial part of the economy as it powers most of its operations. Additionally, most other sectors in the economy depend on this sector for their seamless operations.
Almost every business or household needs energy daily to keep its functions running. With a visible push towards renewable energy, the global economy has also embraced many alternative energy sources. However, oil and gas producers have a substantial hold across most global markets.
With that, it is time to look at two such energy stocks that operate in the oil and gas industry. Here is a closer look at Devon Energy and Chevron and why you can keep an eye on them:
