Eric Nuttall is a portfolio manager at Sprott Asset Management. His focus is on oil and gas stocks.
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.

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