TheStreet Ratings rates Plains All American Pipeline as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels, solid stock price performance, increase in net income and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

On the positive front, InterOil Corporation ( IOC), down 9.6%, Warren Resources ( WRES), down 9.1%, Zion Oil & Gas ( ZN), down 6.0% and Global Geophysical Services ( GGS), down 6.0% , were all gainers within the energy industry with Exxon Mobil Corporation ( XOM) being today's featured energy industry leader.
