The rise in the price of crude oil to a four-year high of US$80 (RM331.20) a barrel has lifted over 20 oil and gas (O&G)-related stocks on Bursa Malaysia.
Bloomberg data shows five stocks have risen over 12% since Monday to the close of market yesterday as crude oil prices extended gains on prospects of tighter global supply availability, while 15 others rose between 1% and 10%.
The stock that has increased the most over the span of three trading days was Deleum Bhd which closed at RM1.14 yesterday, 16.92% higher than its close last Friday of 98 sen a share.
The company had recently secured three new contracts from Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, Sarawak Shell Bhd and Sabah Shell Petroleum Co Ltd for provision of integrated corrosion solution and oilfield services.
Deleum has a market value of RM461.29 million and its stock had returned 27% year-to-date, trading at 14 times its estimated earnings per share for the coming year.

Despite the challenges and uncertainties faced by the oil and gas (O&G) industry this year, analysts are more bullish on the prospects of the sector in 2017, driven by various promising factors.
MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Bhd’s research arm (MIDF Research) in its 2017 outlook report, opined: “All is not doom and gloom in the O&G sector as opportunities still exist, especially for asset light and niche service providers.”
All things considered, it said, the O&G industry still offers attractive trading opportunities in line with the volatile movements in the global crude oil mart.
“We are negative on asset-heavy companies with heavy reliance on upstream exploration and production activities but we remain positive with downstream related companies.
“Having said that however, we recommend investors to cherry pick stocks within niche segments of the O&G value chain,” it added.
It suggested that Dayang Enterprise Bhd (Dayang) and Deleum Bhd (Deleum) are front are frontrunners with niche expertise in the upstream maintenance, construction and modification (MCM) works for Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) and its production sharing contractors.

Did you catch the price rise wave, or mistimed and was caught in the trough?
Dateline 2016-12-02, NST:

Leading the pack was Deleum, with the counter jumping 10.5 sen, or 12.8 per cent, to 92.5 sen, with 4.97 million shares traded.
Crude oil prices steadied around US$53 (RM236.90) a barrel yesterday, holding on to big gains made after Opec and Russia agreed to restrict production.

Maybe I should change loyalty to Pakeeza, which is a bit closer to the office.
