    ConocoPhillips (COP), Suncor (SU) and Husky Energy (HUSKF.PK) offer the best value among energy shares, with Exxon (XOM) and Murphy Oil (MUR) at the bottom of the value heap, Barclays says. COP will rely on its "unmatched" North American unconventional oil portfolio to get better returns for its investments, the firm says in upgrading shares to Overweight with an $80 target (from $67).

    The shale bonanza has sparked a switch in the behavior of oil firms: Companies have been selling off assets overseas and pumping money back into the U.S. Conoco (COP) has been involved in six major foreign sales in the past year totaling $11B, and much of it is being redirected into North Dakota and Texas shale. Other firms redirecting overseas assets to the U.S.: HES, DVN, APA, MRO, MUR, NBL.
