    The departure of David Wood as Murphy Oil (MUR -0.4%) CEO took analysts by surprise. Wood was with the company for 17 years and hadn't signaled any plans to step down, Tudor Pickering Holt says; he gave no indication that he might be quitting during a May analyst meeting, Deutsche Bank says in suspecting "some kind of internal issue."

    “In a downward oil price environment, being the ultimate energy blue chip helps," Raymond James writes in upgrading Exxon Mobil (XOM) to Outperform. "In the context of our below-consensus oil view for 2013, Exxon stands out for its free cash flow generation." But the firm cuts Hess (HES) and Murphy Oil (MUR), as both stocks are tightly correlated to the price of oil.

    Even as oil moves to a 9-month high, volatility on the oil-stock index (XLE) has collapsed, writes Steven Sears, making the purchase of XLE calls a leveraged way to play a further breakout in crude without forking over a ton of premium.

    The concept of Peak Oil is being buried in North Dakota, argues Citigroup (.pdf), with finds there leading the U.S. to be the "fastest growing oil producer in the world." A decade of supply being unable to meet optimistic forecasts is coming to an end at the same time that demand declines.
