Some silly analysts were dissapointed that Core Labs didn't beat earnings or grow revenue as fast as some would have hoped, but they're missing the point.

When a company posts records for revenue, margins, and earnings in a quarter, you wouldn't expect share prices to decline by more than 9%. But this is exactly what happened to Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) when it reported earnings last week. If this is an indication of anything to investors, it's that Wall Street doesn't understand this company, and it is an opportunity for individuals to own one of the better-performing oil services companies out there.

Not only does Core outpace peers Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) and Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB) when it comes to profit margins, but Core's ability to generate returns on invested capital are second to none among its peers.
