Statoil ASA (STO): Today's Featured Energy Winner

The energy industry closed the day down 2.7%. GeoMet Inc ( GMET), Isramco Inc ( ISRL), InterOil Corporation ( IOC), and Compressco Partners ( GSJK) were all winners today within the energy industry with Statoil ASA ( STO) being today's featured energy winner. Statoil ASA rose 30 cents (1.4%) to $21.62 on heavy volume. Throughout the day, 4.8 million shares of Statoil ASA exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of three million shares.

Statoil ASA engages in the exploration, production, transportation, refining, and marketing of petroleum and petroleum-derived products. Statoil ASA has a market cap of $66.7 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 6.9, above the average energy industry P/E ratio of 5.6 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 10.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Statoil ASA as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and attractive valuation levels. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

On the negative front, Lucas Energy Inc ( LEI), WSP Holdings ( WH), Magnum Hunter Resources ( MHR), and C&J Energy Services Inc ( CJES) were all losers within the energy industry with Petroleo Brasileiro SA Petrobras ( PBR) being today's energy industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the energy industry could consider Energy Select Sector SPDR ( XLE) while those bearish on the energy industry could consider Proshares Short Oil & Gas ( DDG).
