Diamondback Energy

The shares of Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ: FANG) have reached pre-Covid levels assisted by a strong recovery in benchmark oil prices and rising transportation demand. However, the recent dip earlier this month was triggered by fears of another infectious wave by the Omicron variant. Diamondback Energy is an independent exploration and production company with onshore oil & gas reserves in the Permian Basin and West Texas. Given the likelihood of rising production volumes in the U.S. despite the uncertain demand environment due to the coronavirus crisis, Trefis believes that the stock has a strong chance of a rise after the recent drop.

So is Diamondback Energy stock likely to recover in the coming weeks and months or is a decline more likely? Per the Trefis machine learning engine which analyzes historical stock price movements, FANG stock has a 58% chance of a rise over the next month (21 trading days).
