There's a reason so many are talking about little Argentina. If it was considered reasonably valued $30+to $50+ with Repsol, it is all the more so with Argentina. They are in a rush to develop, to take a 2nd place spot only behind U.S. in tapping shale reserves. Notice valuations b4 they confirmed the massive shale reserves.
There's legit reason(s) the world is clamoring for LNG (liquified nat gas) - and co.s like Chesapeke will leave iconic thumprints on history of world development.
YPF/Argentina are far more stable in their vaulation, built literally on where they stand.
Better read the history - YPF was a mess when they put it out to bid and Reposol began to run the company. They laid off 30,000 people to dress up the books before going to bid and that was just starters.
Correction: I meant *next year. Bear in mind I've always undershot upsides (LYG is already 3.30, BAC hit 9.00 right after the start of the '12).
Double stock price is not much of reach, not triple. My upper is $50, but I would surprised but not shocked if hit $70 given the speed YPF/Argentina is moving.
(and the sheer wealth of gas).
