YPF Sociedad Anonima, an energy company, is engaged in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil, natural gas, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Argentina.

TheStreet Ratings rates YPF Sociedad Anonima as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, increase in net income and attractive valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and poor profit margins.

On the positive front, Forest Oil (FST), up 13.4%, Swift Energy (SFY), up 8.7%, Enservco (ENSV), up 7.6% and Emerge Energy Services (EMES), up 7.3% , were all gainers within the energy industry with Anadarko Petroleum (APC) being today's featured energy industry leader.
