Best Energy Stocks: Phillips 66 Is No. 7

Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX  ) has been nothing short of spectacular since splitting off from ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP  ) earlier this year. The refiner has made our list of top performing energy stocks in 2012 with a stock price appreciation of 60% year to date. While the sector as a whole was buoyed by access to cheap WTI oil in North America, Phillips 66 stands out as a long-term winner by using excess cash flows to build out its successful chemicals and midstream division. Shareholders have been adequately rewarded while the company increased its dividend twice this past year, in addition to enacting a lofty $2 billion share repurchasing program. 

There are many different ways to play the energy sector, and our analysts have uncovered an under-the-radar company that's dominating its industry. This company is a leading provider of equipment and components used in drilling and production operations, and poised to profit in a big way from it.
