Investors love popular stocks. That's why investors flock to popular names like Kodiak Oil & Gas (NYSE:KOG) and SandRidge Energy (NYSE:SD). There's a comfort level in knowing that a stock we own, is beloved by other like-minded investors. Further, because the stock is beloved by investors the financial media is incentivized to provide content around those stocks, which only makes them more popular.

This is why most investors have heard about and many have invested in Bakken Shale pure-play Kodiak Oil & Gas. However, for whatever reason a fellow Bakken Shale pure-play, Oasis Petroleum (NYSE:OAS) has remained under the radar. This is despite the fact that it has a larger position in the play giving it more growth opportunities than its popular peer Kodiak Oil & Gas.

Likewise, investors and the financial media love to talk about the potential of a company like SandRidge Energy. There's good reason for that as the company is a great buy today. However, there are energy companies operating in places like the Permian Basin that are bursting at the seams with production growth potential. Even better, these companies sport better balance sheets as none went on a buying binge to lock up acreage. Instead, these under the radar names were in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the shale boom.

I've uncovered five under the radar energy stocks just like Oasis Petroleum that I think most investors have missed. I created the slideshow below to show why I like these companies, in some cases, even better than more popular energy stocks like Kodiak Oil & Gas or SandRidge Energy.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
