(NYSE:HES)Today, Fool.com Energy analyst Joel South discusses why Hess (NYSE:HES) is one of those integrated energy companies that investors should be on the lookout for. Recently, the company's exploration and production division grew significantly due to strength from the Bakken operations, and as a result of having Libya back on line.
However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows, and the refining side showed some weakness to offset other division's strengths. Ultimately, Joel believes that, even after taking the good with the bad, Hess is an attractive company for investors to watch today.
