12. Post Properties (PPS)

Company Profile: Post Properties is a developer and operator of upscale multifamily communities. The company operates as a real estate investment trust, or REIT.

Share Price: $41.17 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 19% based on a price target of $49

Investment Thesis: Analyst Buck Horne says Post Properties should outperform in 2012 as the apartment REIT sector is poised for near-record earnings growth in 2012.

"As part of that favorable backdrop, we believe Post Properties' accelerating rent growth, low rent/income ratios, and attractive development pipeline present a compelling multi-year earnings growth profile at a valuation that remains quite attractive," Horne writes.

11. Chevron (CVX)

Company Profile: Chevron is one of the largest corporations in the U.S. and is engaged in oil and gas exploration, production and refining.

Share Price: $102.04 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 22.5% based on a price target of $125

Investment Thesis: Analyst Pavel Molchanov says Chevron is structurally the best-positioned of the super-major oil giants, like Exxon Mobil (XOM).

"Despite Chevron's currently high capital intensity as it spends heavily on the long-term [liquid natural gas] projects, the free cash flow yield remains robust," Molchanov writes.
