PDC Energy, Inc. acquires, explores, develops, and produces natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and crude oil in the United States. The company operates in two segments, Oil and Gas Exploration and Production, and Gas Marketing. PDC Energy has a market cap of $1.7 billion and is part of the basic materials sector.

TheStreet Ratings rates PDC Energy as a hold. Among the primary strengths of the company is its solid stock price performance. At the same time, however, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, generally higher debt management risk and disappointing return on equity.

On the positive front, Lone Pine Resources ( LPR), up 30.2%, BMB Munai ( BMBM), up 26.7%, HyperDynamics Corporation ( HDY), up 12.6% and Willbros Group ( WG), up 12.5% , were all gainers within the energy industry with Exxon Mobil Corporation ( XOM) being today's featured energy industry leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the energy industry could consider Energy Select Sector SPDR ( XLE) while those bearish on the energy industry could consider Proshares Short Oil & Gas ( DDG).
