11 High Growth Energy Stocks To Buy

The International Energy Agency's latest report highlights the concerning trend that the number of people without access to modern energy is increasing, reversing the progress made in the last decade. According to the report, around 75 million people who have recently gained access to electricity may not be able to afford it, while an additional 100 million people may need to rely on traditional biomass for cooking. 

As per the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report in April, in order to achieve the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C as set out in the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to reach the peak of greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 at the latest and reduce them by 43% by 2030. Dealing with emissions presents a chance for the development of the green economy. The sectors that support the transition to net-zero emissions have the potential to reach a value of $10.3 trillion for the world economy by 2050.

On the other hand, experts predict that China's crude oil imports will reach a new high in 2023 due to an increase in demand for fuel as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and new refineries begin operations. This is expected to be a positive factor for the oil market, which is already being supported by output cuts from the OPEC+ producer group and western sanctions on Russian exports.

According to industry consultancies including Wood Mackenzie, FGE, Energy Aspects, and S&P Global Commodity Insight, China's crude oil imports could increase by as much as 500,000 to 1 million barrels per day (bpd) this year, potentially reaching up to 11.8 million bpd, surpassing the previous record of 10.8 million bpd in 2020. This growth would reverse the trend of declining crude oil imports over the last two years.

“Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) provides equipment and services to the global energy industry.

Halliburton benefits from the ongoing upswing in global upstream spending and should play a pivotal role in helping exploration and production companies navigate the recent productivity declines in North American shale.

For the first three quarters of the year, we should change the name of our fund to the Jed Clampett Fund. Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY), was one of the standouts.
