SELECT EGY SVCS (WTTR) shares rallied 7.6% in the last trading session to close at $5.55. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 3.7% loss over the past four weeks.
Increased optimism over an accelerated recovery of oil and gas prices primarily drove Select Energy Services' stock higher. As oil price is witnessing a significant gain and natural gas price is attaining major highs, due to low supplies, more upstream activities are expected in the coming days. This, in turn, will increase demand for oilfield service providers like Select Energy Services.
