StockCall Scrutinizes WPX Energy, Denbury Resources, Cobalt Intl. Energy, And Continental Resources

Stocks in this article: CIE CLR DNR WPX

LONDON, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The oil and gas industry is seeing a major shift due to the shale oil revolution in the U.S. The shale oil boom is expected to make U.S. the world's largest producer of oil in the next few years. The shale boom offers independent oil & gas companies such as WPX Energy Inc. (NYSE: WPX), Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE: DNR), Cobalt International Energy Inc. (NYSE: CIE), and Continental Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLR) significant opportunities. Oil & gas companies are also looking to benefit from a rebound in U.S. and Chinese economy. On Monday, though, oil & gas stocks struggled, as the broad market slipped on the back of weaker-than-expected U.S. manufacturing data. StockCall reviewed the Independent Oil & Gas industry and chose WPX, DNR, CIE, and CLR for its technical coverage. These free reports can be seen for free at
