Is This Company Sitting on the Best Oil Field in America?

Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD  ) released fourth-quarter earnings this week, with most outcomes  falling in line with management's forecast. While the company experienced higher general and administrative costs that cut into cash flow, the future has never looked better. Pioneer added 141 million barrels of oil equivalent, or BOE, of proven reserves which it plans on exploring while fulfilling the company's 16%-21% compounded annual growth rate through 2016. With Pioneer's nearly 10 billion BOE in potential resources and capital expenditures geared toward the tremendous Spraberry-Wolfcamp oil play, investors need to pay close attention to the first half of 2014 and see how prolific the company's new wells are. If the numbers are as good as management expects, this oil and gas company's share price could move much higher.
