Oil prices have bounced between $70 and $80 a barrel this year. While there are many top oil stocks, I've zeroed in on Chevron (NYSE: CVX) as the one I want to buy this month. Here's why I believe oil prices appear poised to rally and why Chevron is my oil stock of choice to profit from that thesis.
Canadian Defence Minister Anita Anand said on Saturday that the country's critical infrastructure was increasingly being targeted by cyberattacks, posing a significant threat to the economy of the world's fourth-largest crude oil producer. The U.S. State Department warned last month that China was capable of launching cyberattacks against oil and gas pipelines and rail systems, after researchers discovered a Chinese hacking group had been spying on such networks. In an interview on the sidelines of an Asian security summit in Singapore, Anand said there had been an increase in cyberattacks across North America, although she did not attribute the strikes to any state-sponsored actors.

VIENNA (Reuters) -OPEC and its allies are discussing deepening oil production cuts, possibly by as much as 1 million barrels per day, three sources told Reuters on Friday as oil prices fell towards $70 per barrel and market analysts spoke of a new supply glut. OPEC+, which groups the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world's crude, meaning its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices. Three OPEC+ sources said cuts were being discussed among options for Sunday, when OPEC+ ministers gather at 2 p.m. in Vienna (1200 GMT).
Fear that the OPEC+ alliance of world oil producers could announce a third production cut in nine months led crude prices to rally again on Friday, significantly paring weekly losses. London-traded Brent crude was up $1.75, or 2.4%, to $76.03. Like WTI, Brent was down 1% on the week.
With the U.S. debt ceiling removed, world markets see the sky again - encouraged that robust U.S. labor markets continue to defy recession fears as interest rates near peaks. May's U.S. employment report later on Friday now stands as the last major data point of a shortened trading week in which June was greeted with glee by global investors.
Oil prices rose sharply Friday after the U.S. debt ceiling deal passed through Congress, averting a default ahead of the weekend’s meeting of OPEC ministers and their allies at the weekend. The U.S. Senate approved a bill to lift the country’s $31.4 billion debt ceiling late Thursday, the day after the House of Representatives did the same. The agreement now heads to the White House, with President Joe Biden just having to sign the deal to stave off a sovereign default that would have had severe economic repercussions globally.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Oil prices rose over 2% on Friday after the U.S. Congress passed a debt ceiling deal that averted a government default in the world's biggest oil consumer and jobs data fueled hopes for a possible pause in Federal Reserve interest rate hikes. The focus is now turning to a meeting of OPEC and its allies this weekend. Brent futures rose $1.85, or 2.5%, to settle at $76.13 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose $1.64, or 2.3%, to settle at $71.74.
Investing.com -- Oil prices rose in Asian trade on Friday as markets cheered the approval of a bill to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and avoid a default, although uncertainty ahead of an OPEC meeting over the weekend kept gains in check.
The outcome of Sunday’s OPEC+ meeting will most likely be price-driven versus the alliance’s hype that it isn’t price-focused, analysts at Citigroup suggested in a note issued Thursday. “What the 8 OPEC+ members, plus Russia, that committed to make output cuts for May actually do when they meet this weekend is likely to be a function of prices,” the Citi note said, referring to Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Algeria, Kazakhstan and Iraq. “Further deterioration in prices toward $70 or below for Brent put a 60-70% likelihood on a cut by some members of the group, and Russia might not be one of them,” the note added.
It’s the same script that plays out before each OPEC+ meeting and we’re seeing it again. Crude prices settled up as much as 3% Thursday, paring the 7% loss from three previous days of trading, as market participants braced for the possibility that OPEC+ would announce another output cut at its meeting this weekend — against bets for a stay. It was one reason for the late-week comeback in oil prices despite a dismal weekly supply-demand report on oil released by the U.S. government.

U.S. crude stockpiles rose last week while fuel inventories were mixed, according to government data on Thursday that bucked expectations for falls in both as oil bulls bet on higher energy demand with the advent of summer travel. The U.S. crude inventory balance rose by 4.489 million barrels during the week ended May 26, the Energy Information Administration, or EIA, said in its Weekly Petroleum Status Report. In the prior week to May 19, the EIA reported a deficit of 12.456M barrels, the most in six months or the week ended November 25.

LONDON/DUBAI (Reuters) -OPEC and its allies are unlikely to deepen supply cuts at their ministerial meeting on Sunday despite a fall in oil prices toward $70 per barrel, four sources from the alliance told Reuters. OPEC+, which groups the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world's crude and supplies around 60% of the oil export market, meaning its policy decisions can have a major price impact. As the economic outlook worsened, several members of OPEC+ in April pledged voluntary cuts starting from May and to continue to the end of the year.

BENGALURU (Reuters) -Oil prices rose on Thursday by the most in two weeks ahead of an OPEC+ meeting on Sunday, while House of Representatives passage of a bill to suspend the U.S. debt ceiling helped to offset the impact of rising inventories in the country. Both benchmarks recovered from two-straight sessions of losses after the House passed a bill late on Wednesday to suspend the U.S. government's debt ceiling and improve chances of averting a default. "The successful debt ceiling negotiations clear that minefield, but the overall demand outlook is still murky - the trucking space is doing poorly, for example," CFRA Research analyst Stewart Glickman said.

A batch of purchasing managers index reports from across the Asia-Pacific region will offer local markets direction on Thursday, with investors likely to be in a cautious mood following Wednesday's global market moves. If the PMI data on Thursday from Japan, Australia, India, South Korea and others are as gloomy as China's official PMI figures were on Wednesday, markets are in for a torrid start to the new month. Official data showed factory activity in China shrank faster than expected in May, at its fastest rate in five months, while service sector activity expanded at the slowest pace in four months.
