The video below is part of The Motley Fool's "11 O'Clock Stock" series where we're recommending a new stock every weekday at 11 a.m. ET on Fool.com for 50 weekdays.

In the video below, Motley Fool Special Ops analyst Toby Shute explains why he thinks Contango deserves a place in your portfolio. Shute likes the company for its clean balance sheet and extremely low all-in costs. Its cost structure even beats other efficient operators like Southwestern Energy (NYSE: SWN ) . However, don't let Contango's conservative balance sheet fool you; the company made some well-timed swings for the fences as well. All things considered, while Shute acknowledges the risks of investing offshore, he thinks an investment in Contango stacks the odds in your favor.
