Chesapeake Energy Corporation Research Report

The organic growth story of Chesapeake is one which has been making analysts
and investors feel more secure amid the falling price of natural gas.
Chesapeake is in the process of reforming its management to reaffirm its
commitment to guarantee its stakeholders of growth and profitability. The
company's revenue rose by 30% year-over-year to $3.5 billion. Chesapeake's
production of 1.422 trillion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent proves to be
a great potential for the company to reach greater heights as the US holds a
more solid ground to become a major natural gas exporter in the near future.

Cimarex Energy Corp. Research Report

The profitability of oil and gas companies is a solid proof why Cimarex has
been attracting investors to its stock. Cimarex beat expectations after
reporting better-than-expected financial results for its fourth quarter and
full-year 2012 earnings. The company posted a 3% revenue increase to $429.8
million for oil, gas and natural gas liquids during the fourth quarter.
Cimarex' proven reserves increased by 10% to 2.3 trillion cubic feet
equivalent by year-end. Its 2013 outlook projects an 8-13% increase in total
production volume to an average of 675-705 MMcf. Analysts are expecting
Cimarex to post another solid performance this year while the company
continues to invest on exploration and development which totaled to $1.6
billion at the end of 2012. The Full Research Report on Cimarex Energy Corp.-

EV Energy Partners LP Research Report

While most oil and gas players continue to explore resource-rich locations in
various regions, EV Energy Partners has been consistently generating cash
flows from its onshore operations. According to a report by the International
Energy Agency (IEA), US may become the world's largest crude producer by 2020
and net crude exporter by 2030. Although analysts and investors agree that the
growth potential of EV Energy Partners is beyond borders, the company's
decision to focus on US oil and gas exploration and production may prove to be
a strategic move to minimize risks. EV Energy Partners looks poised for growth
as the company continues to maintain its healthy balance sheet and valuation.
The company is set to announce its fourth quarter and full-year 2012 financial
results on March 1, 2013 before the market open. The Full Research Report on

drive Goodrich to achieving a better positioning in the sector. The Tuscaloosa
is expected to hold 7 billion barrels of oil based on a report by the
Louisiana Department of Natural Resources. Goodrich is expecting a 40-60% oil
volume growth in 2013 as the company focuses 85% of its capital expenditures

SM Energy Corp. Research Report

Reserves are probably one of the primary factors to consider every time
investors look at energy players. SM Energy's 40% record proven reserves
growth may probably keep the company to trade on the green for a while. The
company's long-term growth is seen through its impressive oil production and
reserves as the company continues its exploration and development in strategic
locations. SM Energy holds 1,761 BCFE (293 MMBOE) at year-end 2012 while it
increased its annual production by 29% to a record 218.9 BCFE (36.5 MMBOE).
