6 Ultra-Yield Dividend Oil Stocks To Buy As Middle East War Explodes

Author: Lee Jackson

Since topping out at $120 in the summer of 2022, the major oil benchmarks had traded down every month until bottoming at the beginning of December. The decline from the top in June of 2022 was a staggering 40%, and while the oil majors can still make money at that level, with a declining price, many opted to slow or halt production. By March of last year, West Texas Intermediate had dropped to $67.61, a bottom that stayed in place until late June when oil broke out.

After the breakout and move to over $90 per barrel, oil hit a wall in late September and has dropped 22% since then. This is despite war breaking out in the Middle East after the devastating Hamas attack on Israel. Now that war is starting to expand, there are worries that Iran could become involved as Israel turns its attention to Hezbollah. If oil supplies are threatened in the region, prices could explode higher.
