If you still have a hunger for risk and it's aimed at energy, look beyond even cheap-looking Big Oil shares to smaller firms in oil shale (like SM, OAS and COG, or ETFs like PSCE or IOIL) - pricier, but maybe better positioned in newer technologies like horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, and which may be takeover targets for the big boys.

    I like your call on SM

     

    Good player in the Eagle Ford

     

    No position in SM but hold NFX as a 'smaller' player that has been beaten up.

    SM and COG are both good bets. As are GEOI, CWEI, CXPO, ROSE, FST, MHR, and CRZO.

    I'm going with TPLM, DEJ, and LEI. I would like to also pick up some KOG on a pullback.
