Analysts are predicting an increase in earnings for the major oil companies, as concerns about oil supplies in the Persian Gulf have driven crude prices higher. The Brent crude benchmark, used by oil companies to price their production, traded at an average that was 12 percent higher than the same period last year. Exxon and Chevron are scheduled to report earnings on Thursday and Friday, while ConocoPhillips reported earnings this past Monday.

"First-quarter results also will serve as a reminder that major U.S. oil companies continue to struggle to increase their output as the reserves in their fields deplete quickly and access to new sources remains a challenge," said Phil Weiss, an analyst at Argus Research.
