A few months ago, Carverm tapped the stock as a solid choice for the long haul: "While EOG is highly leveraged in the near term, the price of oil and nat gas will only rise over time due to global demand. The EOG management team has a strong history of returning shareholder value and I expect this to continue."
Over the past three years, in fact, EOG has grown its top line at a solid rate of 8.8% annually. That's faster than industry peers like Anadarko (3.7%) and Apache (4.9%), let alone Devon Energy's

Holds 535,000 acres in Eagle ford shale, 600,000 in the Bakken, 210,000 in the Marcellus and many other large fields in the U.S. Consistently a top performing company. ROE should continue to rise with its transition from 75% nat gas 25% oil to 75% oil, 25% nat gas. Both Jim Cramer and T. Boone Pickens love this stock.
