9 Best Energy Stocks to Buy for an Electric 2021
It has been one crazy year for energy stocks as the global coronavirus pandemic has disrupted supply chains, sapped demand and resulted in extreme volatility for oil and gas prices.

In fact, fears of oversupply and a lack of storage in April briefly drove West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures into negative territory for the first time in history.

But as markets have stabilized into 2020's late innings, oil has bounced back and now sits at roughly $45 a barrel. That's flirting with the highest levels since early March, providing a sign that things are not quite as dire as they were several months ago for the energy sector. And that has analysts excited about the potential for some of the best energy stocks in the space going forward.

As we look to 2021, then, it's important to take stock of which energy-sector stocks are doing well and which ones are not. Some have indeed been hit so hard that they might take time to recover. However, other resilient names have recently added a lot to their share prices, and could be smack-dab in the middle of a rebound.

If you're looking for the best energy stocks as we enter the New Year, here are nine picks in the sector to consider.
