  • Is This Company’s Competitive Advantage Factored Into the Share Price?

    By Mark Lin - June 20, 2013 | Tickers: DNR, NFX, WLL

    It is every entrepreneur's dream to convert things that people do not want anymore into hot selling products. I am not talking about a company in the recycling industry, but an oil and natural gas producer. Denbury Resources (NYSE: DNR) is the largest oil and natural gas producer in both Mississippi and Montana. It is focused on carbon dioxide-enhanced tertiary oil recovery, which produces oil from conventional fields that more »

  • This Energy Play Is Priced Like the Rarest Diamond of the Permian Basin

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: FANG, SD, WLL

    This junior oil and gas producer is likely unknown to most investors. Why? Because Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ: FANG) held its initial public offering in October 2012. The fact is that the stock has had positive momentum lately--but does this rosy stock performance match the company's fundamentals?

    To make good calls, an investor must set the hype aside and focus on the fundamentals. Diamondback owns more »

    Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ: FANG) is a junior oil and gas producer which is most likely unknown for most investors. Why? Because it held its IPO in October 2012. The truth is that the stock has a positive momentum lately. Does this rosy stock performance match the company's fundamentals?

  • Investing in Oil Is a Slippery Game

    By Phillip Woolgar - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: BP, XOM, SU, TGP, WLL

    Energy stocks are among the most ulcer-causing investments, as there is little certainty, particularly due to a trending global decrease in the reliance of oil. That uncertainty is fueled by an energy sector in a questionable period, with the advancement of clean energy sources, and troubles spewing out of large oil companies. This leaves long-established oil firms spinning their wheels in a world that is yielding to renewable energy.

  • Insiders Are Bullish About This Energy Company

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - March 29, 2013 | Tickers: CLR, EOG, KOG, NOG, WLL

    Continental Resources (NYSE: CLR), one of the leading shale oil producers with a strong position in North Dakota’s Bakken Shale, has been in the news recently as company founder and CEO, Harold Hamm’s wife has filed for divorce. The stock price fell on reports that she could receive, and then presumably sell, a large amount of stock, possibly even threatening Hamm’s majority ownership of the $16 billion more »

  • Looking for Growth? Don't Ignore North Dakota Oil

    By Joshua Bondy - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: CLR, HAL, WLL

    America is dealing with high unemployment and a nasty economy, but North Dakota is walking down a different path. The development and growth of the Bakken formation has given a major boost to the state's crude oil production and super-charged its economy. There are a different ways to invest in this growth story, and a number of small oil firms offer good exposure to the formation.

  • Billionaire T. Boone Pickens' Energy Moves

    By Marshall Hargrave - March 11, 2013 | Tickers: EOG, MRO, OXY, RRC, WLL

    Billionaire investor and oilman-turned-hedge fund manager T. Boone Pickens runs an energy-concentrated hedge fund, BP Capital. His fund is generally invested 90% in energy-related stocks and 10% in commodities. With energy a hot-button topic, I thought it only worthwhile to take a look at how one of the top energy investors and his hedge fund are investing for 2013 (see all of Pickens' picks).

    By Austin Higgins - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: CLR, KOG, WLL

    Kodiak Oil and Gas (NYSE: KOG) announced its quarterly earnings on Feb. 28. The dust has settled on its lower-than-expected earnings report, and now it is time to look at this company from a future perspective. What can we expect from Kodiak in the future?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - March 3, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, PENN, SM, WLT, WLL

  • Noteworthy Upgrades on Thursday

    By Brian Nichols - February 14, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, NOW, FIRE, WLL

    Sometimes an analyst issues a revised outlook or changes his/her rating, but does not inform investors of the reasons behind the call. These typically move stocks on the call alone; the price target and outlook. However, some analysts provide detailed reasons; these are the outlooks that should be noted and used as part of your fundamental research. Therefore, I am taking a look at such outlooks and determining the more »

  • Whiting's Big Bakken Upside

    By Kirk Spano - December 20, 2012 | Tickers: CVX, CLR, WLL

    Whiting Petroeum may be discounted by 50% as investors appear to be only valuing the company's Bakken assets and overlooking the rest of the company.

  • Three Energy Stocks Worth Watching

    By Michael Mistaleski - November 29, 2012 | Tickers: HES, SU, WLL

    It is a whole lot easier to pick winners in the energy sector when the price of oil is rising and all but the most incompetent players are making money. It is a lot more difficult when the price is falling or gyrating up and down. Long term, I think Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU), Whiting Petroleum (NYSE: WLL) and Hess (NYSE: HES) will be good energy investments.

  • Another Catalyst for Bakken Stocks

    By Kirk Spano - September 12, 2012 | Tickers: CLR, KOG, OAS, TSO, WLL

    In my recent article titled "Run is Done for Tesoro" I pointed out that the increase in price on Williston oil versus WTI was a downer for Tesoro (NYSE: TSO).  That same circumstance is a boon for the Williston E&P plays, however.

    The main driver to the increased Williston oil price has been the development of three types of infrastructure in the Williston region.  First off, more rail lines more »

    By Eric Fox - August 20, 2012 | Tickers: APA, CXO, EGN, LPI, WLL

    The Permian Basin recently achieved a milestone that went almost unnoticed by many investors active in the energy sector.  The rig count in this basin moved above 500 rigs during the second quarter of 2012, passing levels reached during the energy boom of the early 1980s.  This is an extraordinary event for the Permian Basin, which was once disdained by many as a mature oil and gas producing area that more »

    By Eric Fox - August 13, 2012 | Tickers: APC, KOG, LINE, NFX, WLL

    The exploration and production industry moved to drive down development costs in the second quarter of 2012 through increased drilling efficiencies as the rejuvenation of the United States oil and gas resource base continues.

    Boomtown USA!

    Now we all know about the Shale Boom in America. One of those booms is in North Dakota, known as the Bakken Shale. Oil production in the Bakken is shooting upwards. According to North Dakota’s Department of Mineral Resources, oil production was 350,000 bpd in 2011, and now is up to 560,000 bpd currently. Many see this increasing to 750,000 to 1,000,000 more »
