US Oil Companies Don't Want In on Brazil's Oil Party

The following video is from Tuesday's Digging for Value, in which host Alison Southwick, Motley Fool Senior analyst Michael Olsen, and contributor Tyler Crowe dive deep into top stories for today's energy sector investors.

The race to cash in on the Brazilian oil fields is off. Companies that wish to participate in the upcoming pre-salt auction have  just submitted their paperwork, and no American names were present on that list. In this segment, Tyler explains why US companies are sitting this one out, and why it is actually a pretty good move. 

The real winners on the pre-salt fields will most likely be the oil services companies looking to make this region a success, and one behind-the-scenes energy company poised to profit from these types of fields has been named "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2013." Find out the name of the company our Chief Investment Officer has named his top stock of the year in our comprehensive special report.
