The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
Chesapeake Energy recently drilled a gusher in the Anadarko Basin. David feels that the find is truly impressive. He still doesn't think the company is worth the risk, however. It's unhedged against natural gas and is looking to make massive asset sales in order to raise cash to pay its debts. David prefers SandRidge Energy with its growing oil production.
