Several energy stocks look to be setting up for another rally, and using the Zacks Rank, I have identified three that look particularly promising. Based on their rankings, it is likely that these stocks will outperform over the next few months.
Headquartered in Sugar Land, Texas, CVR Energy CVI is an independent refiner and marketer of high value transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel. CVI owns and operates a coking medium-sour crude oil refinery in Kansas and a crude oil refinery in Oklahoma. The business serves retailers, railroads, farms and other refineries and marketers.
Even with the stellar performance that the energy sector put up in 2022, many of the stocks still have reasonable valuations. If you pair that with the fact that many of these stocks have improving earnings, you have a very compelling setup for a bull run. Investors who are comfortable going against the current bearish sentiment in the energy market may be rewarded by buying now.
A third wave of worldwide refinery rationalisation is currently underway. Global shutdowns of 3.6 mb/d have already been announced, but a total of at least 6 mb/d will be required to allow utilisation rates to return to above 80%.
Sinopec's FY 2020 profit fell 42% Y/Y to 5.1B, the lowest since 2015 due to the global pandemic and extensive lockdowns.

Morgan Stanley raised its price targets for four European energy stocks, and recommended adding two others to a portfolio based on their long-term investment strategies. Insider breaks down those stocks below, sorted by total market cap:

Amid burgeoning demand, tight supply, and inflating prices, Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU) (TSE: SU) and Valero Energy (NYSE: VLO) are two diesel stocks that stand to ride the wave.
