TheStreet would like to highlight 5 stocks pushing the industry higher today:

5. Ecopetrol S.A ( EC) is one of the companies pushing the Energy industry higher today. As of noon trading, Ecopetrol S.A is up $0.81 (1.9%) to $44.59 on average volume. Thus far, 292,171 shares of Ecopetrol S.A exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 561,000 shares. The stock has ranged in price between $43.52-$44.61 after having opened the day at $43.85 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $43.78.

Ecopetrol S.A., an integrated oil company, engages in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas Colombia. The company operates in four segments: Exploration and Production, Refining and Petrochemicals, Transportation, and Market and Supply. Ecopetrol S.A has a market cap of $87.4 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. Shares are down 28.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are no analysts that rate Ecopetrol S.A a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Ecopetrol S.A as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. Get the full Ecopetrol S.A Ratings Report now.
