Hedge Funds Like This Energy Company

Investors that might be interested in the purchasing habits of the so-called professionals can glean some insight by examining 13-F filings. Now, while 13-Fs typically are released a bit later than the activities they record, they can offer a nice starting point for research.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, it appears that energy companies were not the belles of the ball. Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC  ) was really the only widely purchased energy company, almost comparable to the popular companies in the technology and banking sectors. In the following video, Motley Fool analyst Taylor Muckerman breaks down why he thinks this company was the chosen one from the energy space.

But which one has Warren Buffett been purchasing lately?
National Oilwell Varco is perhaps the safest investment in the energy sector due to its industry-dominating market share. This company is poised to profit in a big way; its customers are both increasing the number of new drilling rigs and updating aging fleets of offshore rigs. To help determine if it could be a good fit for your portfolio, you're invited to check out The Motley Fool's premium research report featuring in-depth analysis on whether NOV is a buy today.
