As with many oil stocks, share price has gone up due to the OPEC deal that will be adopted on January. The deal was completed on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. The deal was to reduce oil production within the companies that are members of OPEC. The reason why companies are benefitting from the deal is that the supply is decreasing while the demand continues to stay the same. Thus, oil companies can charge more for their oil which will positively affects the companies share price.

This bullish forecast on SGY was sent to current I Know First subscribers on December 1, 2016.
