    By Rupert Hargreaves - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: CAM, ESV, NOV

    Goldman Sachs recently issued a note to clients, identifying what it believed are the 40 most undervalued stocks on the market at present.

    Three of the most appealing stocks on this list are in the generally undervalued oil & gas drilling and exploration sector.

  • The Best Investments for the Expanding Oil-Rig Market

    By Rupert Hargreaves - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: CAM, NOV, ORIG, RDC

    Over the next five years, it is expected that there will be a strong demand for deepwater and ultra-deepwater (UDW) rigs, as major oil and gas producers increasingly look towards offshore production in water exceeding depths of 5,000 feet. Despite this being a relatively high-risk area of operation, producers hope that the increased danger will be offset by larger and more lucrative hydrocarbon reserves.

    Indeed, as of October 2012 more »

  • One Cheap Energy Stock to Buy

    By Timothy Green - June 5, 2013 | Tickers: CAM, NOV, SLB

    I don't own any stocks which are related to energy. The big oil companies are so big that growth is slow and valuations are often higher than I'd like to pay. They're fine dividend stocks, but not exactly value stocks. On the other hand, small oil and gas exploration companies are often far too speculative for me to take seriously. But I realized recently that instead of more »

  • This Company Is Set To Soar

    By Piyush Arora - May 21, 2013 | Tickers: CAM, FTI, SLB

    Due to the looming economic uncertainty and poor investors’ sentiment, oil prices remained under pressure for the first half of 2012. But with the Fed’s announcement of QE3 and rising tensions in Middle East, oil exploration has again become profitable. Naturally, oil E&P requires expensive equipment which are mostly leased, which is why Cameron International (NYSE: CAM) is back in action.

    Solid Results

  • Are These Spill Associated Oil & Gas Stocks Worth The Risk?

    By Bill Edson - March 10, 2013 | Tickers: BP, CAM, HAL, RIG

    With possible fines on the horizon, BP (NYSE: BP)Transocean (NYSE: RIG), and Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) are preparing a legal defense for federal court to show that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill was not as a result of negligence. They could be fined billions of dollars in damages for what is seen as the U.S. history’s largest oil disaster.

  • 3 Stocks Riding the Hard-to-Reach-Oil Boom

    By Steve Peasley - February 21, 2013 | Tickers: CAM, OXY, OII

    With more and more new sources of oil and gas found tucked away under the ocean or in land rock formations, the companies that specialize in getting out those hard-to-reach deposits will prosper. Three in particular should benefit: Oceaneering International (NYSE: OII), Cameron International (NYSE: CAM) and Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY).

    In the near term, their success hinges on future prices of oil and gas. A slide in energy prices more »

  • Is Halliburton a Good Stock to Buy After Earnings?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 29, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, CAM, HAL, SLB, WFT

    Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) reported its results for the fourth quarter of 2012 on Jan. 25. Earnings were down from the fourth quarter of 2012, but even excluding one-time items the EPS figure of 67 cents beat analyst expectations. The stock rose 5% on the day and is currently up 11% year to date. While revenue increased 3% from the fourth quarter of 2011, and also rose on a q/q more »

  • Don't Miss These Secure and Steady Returns

    By Joshua Bondy - January 20, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, CAM, NOV, SLB

    Reserve replacement and the need to increase cash flows can encourage companies to make very poor decisions. The fracking boom has produced a number of winners, but the long term profitability of the industry is still unclear. Investing in drillers who need $5 /MMbtu -$8 /MMbtu to breakeven but are forced to accept the market rate of $3 /MMbtu-$4 /MMbtu is a dangerous long term proposition. The recent fiasco more »

  • Can This Company Help Investors Strike Black Gold?

    By Ryan Guenette - January 4, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, CAM, NOV, SLB, TESO

    A SWOT analysis is a look at a company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and is a great way to gain a detailed and thorough perspective on a company and its future. As the new year begins, I would like to pinpoint a leading provider of equipment and components utilized in oil and gas drilling and production operations: National-Oilwell Varco (NYSE: NOV).

  • Why I Like BP

    By Timothy Noffsinger - December 11, 2012 | Tickers: APC, BP, CAM, HAL, RIG, WFT

    I bought into British Petroleum (NYSE: BP) shortly after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) on the thesis that while the company would struggle for a while, it would come back better than ever. I’ve done pretty well so far, and recently I have been looking into my portfolio to see if I want to hold or sell my positions. My opinion on BP more »

  • Play The Oil Market Slump With This Key Stock

    By Maxwell Fisher - November 1, 2012 | Tickers: BP, CAM, XOM, NOV

    The price of a barrel of oil fell below $85 this month. Production hit a 15 year high this week, despite lower demand. All of this economic pressure is pushing stock prices down for major oil companies. I believe this presents a good buying opportunity for those looking to enter the oil and gas market.

    The demand for oil is diminishing in the United States. But population growth and increased more »

  • Iraq Oil Production Scales Up

    By Eric Fox - October 4, 2012 | Tickers: BP, CAM, E, XOM, RDS-B

    Iraq produced more than 3 million barrels per day of crude oil in July 2012, the highest level of oil production for that country since the Gulf War began in 1990, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).  This production increase is being generated through the slow rebuilding of the company’s oil and gas fields by various energy companies over the last few years.

  • Dressing Up Oil Rigs is Back in Vogue

    By Chris Marasco - September 18, 2012 | Tickers: BP, CAM, GE, NOV, USO

    “Follow the money.”  Oil and gas companies are following that mantra because their profits are depending on it.

    In recent months large oil companies like ExxonMobil, Chesapeake, and BP (NYSE: BP) have shirked unprofitable natural gas drilling in favor of more lucrative oil drilling.  The United States Oil (NYSEMKT: USO) ETF, for example, traded as high as $37.17 last week as oil eclipsed $100 per barrel.  Further, oil prices more »

  • Price The Market Part 25

    Hello. My name is Glen Bradford and if this is your first time, welcome to my journey of pricing the S&P500. So far, so good. 

    131. Exxon Mobile Corp (NYSE: XOM) is trading at fair value assuming little to no growth. I don't see that happening for Exxon. Target: $50-$70. Jim Chanos is short this company. Jim Chanos is a bad dude, and I'd highly recommend more »
