Linn's been a leader in developing properties cash off by others, including BP and then quickly bringing great returns to shareholders. I love that Linn offered Linn Co, with its bountiful 7% plus yield for non-taxable accounts. The company's growing its holdings like weeds, yet it stays at a ridiculously low $7 billion valuation.On Thursday, LINE's shares rose to $37.33 on a huge spike in volume, bringing the market cap up to $7.45 billion. As the five-year chart below illustrates for our viewing pleasure, LINE has come a long way, and with the one-year analysts' consensus estimate price target of over $44, has even more room to rise.

As you can see from the chart above, the last reported quarter saw a drop in revenue per share, so when LINE steps into the earnings confessional on Feb. 21 it better show improvements and guide well. In fact, the analyst consensus estimate for sales growth and revenue for this latest quarter is for an increase of almost 72%. The company will also have a fourth-quarter earnings conference call at 11 a.m. ET on Feb. 21. The average estimated revenue for 2012 is for a total of $1.72 billion, an impressive 48% increase over revenue in 2011.
