Market volatility is creating more fear, suppressing some energy stocks, and limiting the upside. As geopolitical risks spook investors, our Quant model has identified energy stocks at discounts. The three energy stocks featured here are Strong Buys based on their promising growth potential, solid profitability, safe dividends, and great dividend yields. The yields on each of our stock picks are more than double the yield on the S&P 500.
