Top Oil Stocks 2011/2012 – Top Oil Stocks to Buy 2011/2012

Oil Stocks to Buy 2011/2012- 2011/2012 Oil Stocks

Below is a list of my latest oil stock picks for 2011/2012. These 2011/2012 Oil Stock Picks are my favor stocks to buy and some of the stocks I will be trading personally. Last year, one of my top oil stock picks was Brigham Exploration (BEXP). BEXP stock went from $15 to $27 from July to December of 2010 and was one of my biggest stock gainers of the year. I feel 2011 will be a good year for stocks and the overall stock market. Oil in 2011 should hit $110-$120 which would make the oil stocks rally even higher.

Key Areas of Oil Exploration in 2011 – Eagle Ford Shale – Niobrara Shale – Bakken Shale – Permian Basin – Oil Discoveries are still going on in these fields and in 2011, more Oil Discoveries will be made. Keep an eye on the Chainman Shale – Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) mentioned in late 2010 that they are drilling for oil in the Chainman Shale. We also have Venoco (VQ) drilling the Monterey Shale in California. With that, here is a list of my best oil stock picks for 2011

#1 Top Oil Stock Pick 2011/2012 – Oil Stocks – Hyperdynamics Corporation (HDY) – While Hyperdynamics (HDY) is my top stock pick of 2010, it is a risky one. The company has no revenues and does not make any money but could be sitting on a very large pool of oil off the coast of Africa. Drilling for oil is expected to begin in December 2011. Hyperdynamics was headed into a downward spiral over the past couple years but changed the management team in 2010 who vowed to take the company in a new direction. Hyperdynamics has a very large prospective leased area off the coast of the Republic of Guinea. In November 2010, Hyperdynamics raised $30 million in a private placement from financial giant Blackrock (BLK) which will help in preperation costs to drill for oil in late 2011. Hyperdynamics did a few surveys and believe they could be sitting on billions of barrels of oil.

As for HDY stock in 2011, It is my top stock to buy and my best trading idea. I have been trading HDY since the stock was $1.60 in August 2010 and gave it a price target of $4 – $6 for 2011. HDY hit a high of $3.63 in October 2010 and continues to trade around $3.00 as we head into 2011. If everything goes as planned and the company does infact sit on top of a large oil pool, we could be looking at a $8-$10 stock by year end 2011 in my opinion. I gave it a target of $4 – $6 when the stock was hitting $2.60 just to be on the conservative side. Of coarse, if Hyperdynamics announces any delays or lesser oil reserves, all bets are off. Pullbacks below $2.50 should be a great buy if you are looking for an entry point. I currently own HDY stock for the long term and will buy more stock on pullbacks. If you have any questions or feel like discussing HDY stock, visit my HDY message forum thread.

#2 Top Oil Stock Pick for 2011 - Kodiak Oil & Gas (KOG) – Kodiak Oil & Gas was another huge stock gainer for me at the end of 2010. I bought KOG stock at $4.30 in mid November 2010 and sold between $5.00-$5.70 a month later. KOG went on to hit $6.69 a few weeks later. Kodiak Oil in Gas recently aquired additional acreage in the Bakken Shale. This acreage is in some of the best zones in the Bakken which includes the Three Forks Oil zone. When I originally bought KOG at $4.30, I placed a personal target of $8-$10 on it for 2011. I am sticking with this and feel the stock could even hit $12. A lot will depend on what oil does but ultimately the stock is going a lot higher. While I don’t own KOG right now, I plan to buy the stock on any major correction.

Invest 2012: best stocks to invest 2012

As many experts suggest, maybe most of us not feel an immediate impact on the life after U.S. credit downgrade by S&P, but all of us can see a change in the future. So, invest best stocks 2012 to maximize you odds of return is necessary.

* The money manager and editor of The Oberweis Report suggests, “Take a look at American Superconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: AMSC), my choice for the top stock idea for 2012”.

The bulk of AMSC business today comes from the wind power industry, as it designs wind turbines and sells turbine electrical systems that can be customized for each customer. AMSC is the leading provider of electrical components to China, US and Korea. The proof is in the pudding, of course. Amidst a weak economic backdrop, the company grew revenues by 85% in their latest reported quarter as they announced their third consecutive quarter of profitability.

* “Annaly Mortgage Management (NYSE: NLY) is our favorite investment idea for 2012,” says Jack Adamo.

The company uses modest leverage — about half what banks use — to increase shareholder returns. With short-term rates likely to remain low for several years, Annaly’s interest-rate spread will be wide and profitable. The company has never had a losing year. “The market is still scared blind by anything that has the word “mortgage” attached to it; so, the shares, which would normally yield about 7%, now yield nearly 15%, and the dividend has been growing!

* AOL (NYSE: AOL), formerly America Online, is one of the most storied – and bloodied – names in the Internet sector,” says Bernie Schaeyer.

* “Asian stocks are also booming as China’s growth remains strong,” says Mark Skousen, who chooses AsiaInfo Holdings (NASDAQ: ASIA) as his top pick for the coming year.

* “Atlantic Power Corp. (Toronto: ATP.TO) sells power primarily to electric utilities in major U.S. markets under long-term contracts,” notes income specialist Carla Pasternak.

Top Stocks of 2012 Aflac (AFL)

Top Stocks of 2012
“Aflac (NYSE: AFL) is best known in the U.S. for its ‘duck ads,’ but actually earns over 75% of its money from Japan,” says Dirk Van Dijk.

In selecting the stock as his top pick for 2012, the strategist for, recalls “Aflac happens to be an old favorite of mine, a stock that I first recommended back in 1991.” Here’s his current update.

“In the U.S., its policies are sold through employers on a payroll deduction, as part of companies ‘cafeteria plans’. They are pretty straight forward. If you get sick and can’t work, or are in the hospital, it pays out a set mount directly to the insured.

“It is thus not at risk for rising health care costs (but is if more people get sick). The U.S. unit was under some pressure as payrolls shrank, but with some positive news on the employment front, that should turn around.

“In Japan, once people get AFL insurance they don’t drop it (which is very important in the life and health insurance industry) with a persistency rate of 95%.

“The firm has a superb track record, but came under big pressure during the crash last year due to fears about its investment portfolio. I think those fears are being assuaged over time.

“It has already realized $1.7 billion (pre-tax) in investment losses. Some of those are not going to come back, like its holdings in Lehman Brothers and WAMU, but other parts of the holdings that were written down just might come back.

“Aflac did however write down $380 million as other than temporary losses in holdings of some Ford debt, and Ford has been doing much better of late, certainly much better that it looked back at the end of the first quarter when GM and Chrysler were going down for the count.

“The company has generated an ROE of 33.4% over the last 12 months, and its five year average ROE is 20.84% (it has leveraged up a bit, from having no debt to a still very manageable and conservative 22% debt to capital. As that happens AFL should return to its historic valuations.

“How much upside potential is that? A Lot. Over the last five years (which of course included the big sell o? last year) AFL’s P/E has averaged 15.4x.

“Based on 2010 earnings estimates it is going for 9.5x now, and 8.7X 2012 consensus estimates, and those estimates have been rising.

“AFL also has a habit of beating the estimates. It has done so the last three times out, and in 17 of the last 28 quarters, with only five disappointments.

“AFL currently yields 2.4%, which is nice. It has however, increased that dividend in each of the last 27 years, and over the last 15 years it has done so at a compound annual rate of 20.7%.

“AFL happens to be an old favorite of mine, a stock that I first recommended back in 1991, and was a core holding for most of my tenure at C.H. Dean. I know the management team well from those days, and they are amongst the best I know in the industry.”
