How to Buy Brent Oil Stocks
Investors have the option of achieving exposure to prices of energy commodities by buying stocks of companies engaged in the extraction, refining, and sale of oil. Because Brent oil is used widely in Europe and other international markets, investors seeking exposure should gravitate towards companies that have significant international operations. However, even oil companies listed or headquartered in the U.S. tend to generate substantial portions of their revenues from international operations. There are a number of stocks that can provide indirect exposure to Brent oil prices, including BP, ExxonMobil, Total, Royal Dutch Shell, and ConocoPhillips.
