Heckmann's Set to Soar

Heckmann's acquisition of Power Fuels will increase the company's debt profile, but the short-term funding gap pales in comparison with the upside potential this latest purchase provides. Heckmann lost more than 20% of its value after not releasing guidance during its second-quarter earnings call, but the $155 million in EBITDA that Power Fuels generated last year, plus operations in the oil-rich Bakken shale, will give the new company a viable future, with a huge leg up in a number of the fastest-growing oil plays in the United States. See more in the following video.

The revamped Heckmann is one way to play the emerging shale plays, but there are others. In particular, our analysts have uncovered an under-the-radar company that's dominating this industry. This company is a leading provider of equipment and components used in drilling and production operations, and it's poised to profit in a big way from it.

    I liked your take on HEK and HAL. WLT may be down on coal price but this is the best play in coal. With that said, China announced more domestic spending on subways and roads. TCK would be they play on this.
