Move ’em in, Roll ’em Out

By Elliott H. Gue on Apr. 24, 2013

Investors have blown hot and cold toward the Niobrara Shale over the past several years, with a lack of takeaway capacity, uneven well results and elevated production costs offsetting the promise of an oil-weighted resource base. The huge successes achieved in the Bakken Shale and Eagle Ford Shale also overshadowed developments in Colorado.

But upstream operators have stayed the course and honed their production techniques to the point that the play is starting to shift from the exploratory stage to full-scale development. We highlight two of our favorite upstream operators in this play and a midstream name that expects to grow its payout by more than 33 percent this year.

We’re also taking advantage of the market’s recent strength to take profits on two Focus List winners that have achieved our price targets.
