Energy Stocks Surge on Positive Vaccine News, but Plenty of Upside Remains

Preston Caldwell Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Preston Caldwell |

Energy stocks surged on Nov. 9 following Pfizer's announcement of favorable phase 3 data on its COVID-19 vaccine. The broader U.S. Market Index was up 1% on the day, but the energy sector led the way up 14%. Oil prices (West Texas Intermediate) were also up about 8%. Despite the rally, the energy sector is still down around 45% year-to-date. We think the sell-off has been overdone, and as such energy stocks continue to look undervalued overall. Our median covered energy stock trades at a 37% discount to our fair value. Within energy, oilfield services look cheapest overall, trading at a median 52% discount to fair value. E&Ps are also at a 45% median discount to fair value.
