U.S. crude oil rose 1 % on Friday, topping $83 per barrel as consumer prices eased and inventories fall. The recent oil rally has stalled out with West Texas Intermediate largely flat this week, ahead 0.38%, after booking four-straight weeks of gains. U.S. crude oil and gasoline inventories also fell for the week ended July 5, in a sign that summer fuel demand may be finding some life. OPEC and the International Energy Agency once again sent conflicting demand signals. JPMorgan sees a global oil demand gain of 1.4 million bpd this year.

The tech sector faces a moment of truth in its ambitious climate targets, as the growing power needs of artificial intelligence data centers jeopardize the industry's promise to slash carbon emissions. Goals at risk The energy needs of AI computing pose a significant challenge to Google's and Microsoft's ambitious climate goals. Google aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030 through around-the-clock carbon-free energy on every electric grid where it operates. Holcim and Skia offer construction solutions that improve energy efficiency and promise to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings. Schneider Electric and Legrand help make data center servers more efficient through power management and temperature solutions.

The premium attached to Tesla's stock is increasingly difficult to justify as the company's core auto business deteriorates while enthusiasm over the effect of artificial intelligence on its future growth could wane, according to UBS. UBS analysts led by Joseph Spak downgraded Tesla to sell, though they increased their price target by $50 to $197 per share. The higher target still implies 18% downside from Thursday's close of $241.03 per share. But taken together, this is only $93 of identifiable value in the current share price, which means future option value represents 61% of today's stock, the UBS analysts said. "Given the lack of visibility and the risk that these growth opportunities materialize on a longer time horizon (or don't materialize at all), we rate the stock Sell."

Vistra also owns nuclear power plants, one of the most in-demand power sources in the 2024 market because reactors burn no fossil fuel and emit no greenhouse gases . Guggenheim has a buy rating on Vistra stock with a price target of $133, implying 44% upside from Wednesday's close of $92.31.

The market is only driven by a handful of massive tech stocks – and therefore, it's built on a weaker foundation than a market advancing on a broader swath of its constituents. Companies don't lose dominance or stock leadership because they were dominant the last time we had a bull market. We trimmed Nvidia, Meta Platforms, Palo Alto Networks , and five other tech stocks at the beginning of the year. Would the market suddenly become more investible if we broke up the Super Six into say 15 different companies and stocks? However, we don't think they are a reason to bail entirely on any of these names.

Crude oil futures rose Thursday as inflation eased, bolstering hopes that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates later this year. Lower interest rates typically stimulate economic growth, which can bolster crude oil demand. The inflation and interest rate outlook overshadowed mixed signals on oil demand for this year. The IEA is forecasting global oil demand growth will average just under 1 million bpd in 2024 due to subpar economic growth, greater energy efficiency and electric vehicle adoption. OPEC, on the other hand, is much more bullish, forecasting demand growth of 2.2 million bpd as the cartel sees solid economic growth of 2.9% this year.

Here are today's energy prices:The oil market is waiting to see if U.S. inventory data will confirm expectations that the market is tightening. Summer fuel demand has had a soft start, but a big draw of 12.2 million barrels of crude and 2.2 million barrels of gasoline for the week ended June 28 indicated that activity was picking up. Analysts polled by Reuters expect crude stocks fell by 1.3 million barrels last week, and gasoline inventories declined by 600,000 barrels.

Read previewThe trailer for the "Gladiator" sequel dropped on Tuesday, leaving fans wondering why Paul Mescal plays slave fighter Lucius instead of Spencer Treat Clark, who played him in the original. Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" starred Russell Crowe as Maximus Decimus Meridius, a former Roman general who is betrayed and sold into slavery. The 2000 movie is one of the most beloved historical epics of all time and won five Oscars, including best film, best actor, and best director. But like Maximus, he's forced into becoming a fighter when he's captured by General Marcus Acacius (Pedro Pascal) and his soldiers. Representatives for Spencer Treat Clark did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

U.S. crude oil prices fell for the third straight session on Tuesday, as Gulf Coast oil infrastructure appears to have avoided any substantial damage from Tropical Storm Beryl. On Monday, Beryl made landfall in Matagorda, Texas, as a Category 1 hurricane but later weakened into a tropical storm. Beryl has moved inland as a tropical depression and is now north of Shreveport, Louisiana, according to the National Hurricane Center. U.S. oil inventories fell by 12.2 million barrels for the week ended June 28, and gasoline stocks declined by 2.2 million barrels in a potential bullish sign for the market. Macquarie, however, is forecasting that oil inventories dropped by 1.2 million barrels last week, with the total balance "only modestly tighter than we had anticipated," according to a Monday note.

U.S. crude oil futures fell nearly 1% Monday as traders monitored the impact of Hurricane Beryl on Gulf Coast refining, production and export infrastructure. Beryl made landfall near Matagorda, Texas as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. Here are today's energy prices:Shell shut in production and evacuated personnel from its Perdido platform about 200 miles south of Galveston, according to a company statement Friday. The platform was producing roughly 100,000 barrels per day, about 5.5% of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico, according to Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates. "I don't foresee this storm affecting either supply or price to any significant degree; the consumer will get their gasoline.

U.S. crude oil was little changed on Friday but was on pace for a fourth straight weekly gain as falling inventories show an uptick in demand. Oil market analysts have been forecasting a tighter market in the third quarter as summer fuel demand picks up. U.S. inventory data appeared to confirm those forecasts, with crude stocks declining by 12.2 million barrels and gasoline falling by 2.2 million barrels last week. UBS is forecasting that global oil demand will grow by 1.5 million barrels per day, or bpd, this year, above the long-term growth rate of 1.2 million bpd. "As such, we still believe Brent will likely reach the USD $90/bbl mark this quarter," Staunovo said.

Natural gas has historically been a regional commodity, with supply limited by pipeline networks. "Natural gas is starting to resemble oil in that there's a more global market emerging for it," Antia told CNBC in an interview. The global capacity to liquefy natural gas has grown 60% since 2014, reaching 483 million metric tons annually as of February 2024, according to the IGU. Cheniere: LNG powerhouse The U.S. dominates the global LNG market, accounting for 21% of global exports last year and shipping 84 million metric tons, according to the IGU. Cheniere Energy , a global LNG leader based in Houston, is an opportunity for investors who want exposure to the growing global gas market, Antia said.

Crude oil futures held firm on Wednesday as traders waited for the latest round of U.S. inventory data for signs of whether gasoline demand is picking up. U.S. crude oil gained about 6% last month on expectations of a tighter third quarter with stockpiles forecast to draw down as summer fuel demand picked up.

Investors who want to support the energy transition should consider backing natural gas as a fuel that can "make a really huge impact" by replacing coal, according to a top analyst at asset manager PGIM. "Natural gas is very complementary to them, it is highly dispatchable and it is very low cost." The U.S. is the largest natural gas exporter in the world, according to the Energy Information Administration. "Pipelines offer a very different kind of risk/reward proposition for an investor than, say, a natural gas producer who is very exposed to the volatility of the natural gas price," Antia said. "When it comes to LNG infrastructure, Cheniere is a company that provides the infrastructure necessary to liquefy as well as re-gasifying natural gas," Antia said.
