A few months ago, one of those Fools, Wakester0, succinctly summed up the SandRidge bull case for our community:

Low [PEG ratio] ... this stock has loads of potential. Nicely transitioned their focus from natural gas to oil in the last few years, and made dirt cheap purchases of promising areas for drilling. Like how they've positioned themselves.

Of course, that short pitch doesn't even come close to telling the entire story for SandRidge. You're in luck, though.
