- Investors should use this opportunity to buy shares in beaten down oil companies that have strong balance sheets, significant contract backlogs and international exposure.

- Willbros Group has nearly $2 billion in revenues, a $1.7 billion backlog and could earn around 80 cents per share for 2015, which supports a $13 stock price.
