However, we think ConocoPhillips (COP) and EOG Resources (EOG) may not be able to capitalize on the industry’s recovery and could witness a share-price pullback. Let’s pore over these companies.

This, combined with a resurgence in outdoor recreational activities due to declining COVID-19 infections, could keep the demand for guns high in the coming months.
