    By Brian Nichols - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: EOG, FOSL, TAP, Z

    Last week, the market witnessed its biggest three-day loss in months. Post-earnings movers have attracted investors' eyes as a place to find value. However, are any of these post-earnings movers presenting upside after earnings?

    Zillow (NASDAQ: Z) has seen an incredible 200% rally in 2013, but last week, it fell 9% after missing on the bottom line and barely beating expectations on the top line more »

  • Is it Time to Abandon big Oil?

    By Rupert Hargreaves - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: CVX, EOG, XOM

    Take a chart of the S&P 500's performance over the first half of this year and compare it to the performance of the oil behemoths, Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and Exxon (NYSE: XOM) and you notice that these two companies have seriously underperformed. As I write, the S&P is up 18% year-to-date, while Exxon and Chevron are only up 3.2% and 12.6% respectively, even including annualized more »

    In early June 2013, struggling oil explorer and producer Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) announced that it would spin off a portion of its pipelines and storage facilities, otherwise known as its midstream assets.

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: APC, CHK, EOG

    After billionaire Carl Icahn took an interest in Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), the company went from an inefficient operator with a rich asset base and no direction for monetizing these assets to a turnaround story.

  • Build Your Own Eagle Ford ETF

    By Robert Baillieul - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: EOG, ROSE, SN

    Eagle Ford, once an obscure name only a few years ago, has the potential to become the number one shale play in the United States.

    Unfortunately for investors, there are no exchange traded funds, or ETFs, heavily weighted toward the play. So I constructed my own basket of companies titled towards the emerging formation. 

    Attractive opportunity

  • Best Places to Play Eagle Ford

    By Dana Blankenhorn - May 17, 2013 | Tickers: COG, CHK, EOG | Editor's Choice

    On a recent trip to South Texas the recent impact of the Eagle Ford shale oil play was obvious on every road.

    Brand-new pick-ups and SUVs, many with dealer tags, filled the roads, darting in and out of traffic, their drivers seemingly heedless of the risk of a wreck. It's something you tend to see in an economic boom, this crazy driving of new Detroit iron, and it's more »

    By James Fantaci - May 15, 2013 | Tickers: CLNE, EOG, RRC, WPRT

    The advent of the shale gas revolution is the culmination of advances in the methodology used to detect abundant reserves of Natural Gas and technological leaps in the means to extract it, principally through Horizontal Drilling and Hydraulic Fracturing. When it comes to investing in exploration and production companies, especially those that focus on Natural Gas, investors should pay attention to the cost and yield per well, as well as more »

    By Shas Dey - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, EOG, MRO

    You will not get a better chance to exit Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO) than by selling while it is trading at/near its 52 week high and the business performance is also not supporting that price.

    The company's North American E&P business is not doing well and neither is its Oil Sands Mining business. Exploration costs have massively increased; huge capital expenditure has been incurred with no immediate more »

  • Is Natural Gas a Flaming Buy? Five Cheap Natural Gas Producers to Watch

    By Brendan O'Boyle - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: APA, CHK, CEO, COP, ECA, EOG

    It is probably fair to say that the boom in natural gas has been one of the most unprofitable revolutions in recent memory for investors in natural gas producing companies. Even the legendary Warren Buffett admitted that he overpaid for ConocoPhillips during the heady days leading up to the credit crisis in 2008. This lesson should not be lost on other investors: when energy prices are high, companies that derive more »
