Oil Stocks - A Question


Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find any information on whether higher crude oil prices have any direct effect on the price of oil stocks.

Have a look at this graph of oil prices from 1997 to end 2003:

See any link?

Also, try the Oil and Gas Board on the Motley Fool, it's a goldmine of information:
