7 Top-Rated Energy Stocks With Upside

6. Marathon Oil Corporation is an integrated international energy company operating in three segments: Exploration and production, oil sands mining, and integrated gas.

For second-quarter 2011, adjusted income from continuing operations was $689 million, vs. $440 million in the same quarter the prior year. Total segment income was $713 million compared to $396 million from continuing operations in the same quarter of 2010.

Marathon completed the spin-off of its downstream business during 2011 second quarter and acquired assets worth $3.5 billion in the Eagle Ford shale in Texas.

"Going forward, we are confident that we have the foundation in place to deliver 5% to 7% compound average production growth during the period 2010-2016. This strong growth profile is underpinned by our pending top-five acreage position in the core, liquids-rich area of the Eagle Ford, as well as solid positions across the Bakken, Anadarko Woodford and Niobrara liquids-rich resource plays," said Clarence P. Cazalot Jr., Marathon Oil's chairman, president and CEO.

With analysts' buy ratings of 63% and upside potential of 29%, the stock looks a good bet over the next year. It is trading at 7.1 times its estimated 2011 earnings.
