In its five-year plan, Continental Resources tripled its production 18 months earlier than expected while also significantly growing its proven reserves, primarily in the oil-heavy Williston Basin. Now with its current plan wrapping up, the company is once again taking on the enormous task of increasing its production and proven reserves by three.

The best thing is that it's positioning itself nicely for the long term, as it hasn't expanded at any cost. The company has grown a sustainable level while keeping high margins and minimal leverage. Look for Continental to take advantage of its industry-leading leasehold in the Bakken and turn its prized assets into real returns for investors.
