StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Forest Oil Corp., Quicksilver Resources Inc., EXCO Resources Inc., Canadian Natural Resources Limited, and Rosetta Resources Inc.
New York City, New York -- (May 14, 2013)
Last week, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) maintained its oil demand growth forecast for 2013 even though oil demand for the first quarter grew less-than-forecast. OPEC expects demand to pick up in the second half of 2013. However, it will depend on how the global economy fares. Although concerns over a sharp slowdown in China have eased, the world’s second largest economy is growing at slower-than-anticipated pace. The Eurozone, meanwhile, continues to struggle due to lack of growth. Meanwhile, a stronger U.S. dollar has put pressure on oil prices.
