2. Superior Energy Services (SPN - Get Report)

Company Profile: Superior Energy Services is a provider of oilfield services and equipment. It provides oil and gas companies with brand name rental tools and integrated well intervention services and tools.

Share Price: $26.65 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 76.4% based on a price target of $47

Investment Thesis: Analyst J. Marshall Adkins is poised for outperformance in 2012 thanks to its growth strategy through a merger with Complete Production Services (CPX), an attractive valuation, and a recovery of activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Superior Energy Services continues to establish itself as one of the strongest performing companies in our coverage universe," Adkins writes. "A top-tier management team paired with organic expansion as well as the recent acquisition of Complete Production Services should position Superior to reap the benefits of nearly every burgeoning fundamental theme we see unfolding in the oil service universe in 2012 and beyond."

1. Nvidia (NVDA - Get Report)

Company Profile: Nvidia is a visual computing technologies company and the inventor of the graphics processing unit (GPU).

Share Price: $13.71 (Dec. 14)

Potential Upside: 104% based on a price target of $28

Investment Thesis: Analyst Hans Mosesmann says that the bear case for Nvidia has been overstated and that headwinds won't materialize in the company's fiscal 2013.

"Investors have been increasingly concerned about Nvidia's applications processor, Tegra, and its ability to compete given new dynamics in the tablet and smartphone market," Mosesmann notes. "In essence, we believe Qualcomm (QCOM) will be successful in targeting the lower end of the market, but Nvidia's early lead at quad core will allow the company to have meaningful traction for Tegra in FY13."
