Also in the energy sector and still on sale is Hess (HES - Get Report), an integrated energy company that is considered a "take-apart" candidate where the sum of the parts are likely to be worth more than the whole. Even though it pays a puny dividend, this potential for lucrative spinoffs from the company is the big prize!
TheStreet's research department rates HES a buy, stressing, "The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, increase in stock price during the past year, attractive valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
You can see from the five-year chart below that HES's share price and quarterly revenue per share have moved in virtual lockstep. It also indicates to me the stock price has room to soar on the upside.
