A-plus management combined with A-plus acreage in several low cost, highly profitable wet natural gas and light oil plays. A 12X multiple could see a $50 stock over a year's time.

EOG Resources

First mover advantage in the key U.S. oil shale plays allows EOG to maintain a cost and profitability advantage over almost all other U.S. oil producers.

ARC Resources

Recent weakness due to a short-term AECO basis problem is presenting a good entry point for medium and long-term natural gas bulls.

Whitecap Resources
Then: $7.56
Now: $11.22
Total return: +53.75 per cent

Crescent Point Energy
Then: $43.55
Now: $38.79
Total return: -4.93 per cent

Total return average: +10.25 per cent

Market outlook:

Berkshire Hathaway's investment in Suncor last week could signal the beginning of U.S. fund flows back into the Canadian energy sector. This, combined with strong underlying fundamentals, should bode well for healthy returns for the remainder of the year.
