  • As of late, it has definitely been a great time to be an investor in YY Inc. The stock has moved higher by 20.1% in the past month, while it is also above its 20 Day SMA too. This combination of strong price performance and favorable technical, could suggest that the stock may be on the right path.

    We certainly think that this might be the case, particularly if you consider NLS’s recent earnings estimate revision activity. From this look, the company’s future is quite favorable; as NLS has earned itself a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), meaning that its recent run may continue for a bit longer, and that this isn’t the top for the in-focus company.

    Enerplus Achieves Record Production During the Second Quarter of 2014 and Increases Annual Production Guidance:

    •Enerplus achieved record production of approximately 104,000 BOE per day in the second quarter of 2014, the highest level in our 28 year history. Daily production was up 5% quarter over quarter, and 15% higher than the same period one year ago.

    •Total liquids production grew by 6% quarter over quarter averaging 43,500 barrels per day driven by the significant growth in light oil from North Dakota. The Marcellus also continued to outperform, increasing our total natural gas volumes quarter over quarter.

    •As a result of continued operational outperformance, we are increasing our annual average production guidance for 2014 by 4,000 BOE per day to 100,000 BOE per day to 104,000 BOE per day. We continue to expect liquids production to grow throughout the remainder of the year and to average approximately 44,000 barrels per day in 2014. Natural gas production is expected to continue to grow ahead of expectations due to the performance in the Marcellus.

    •The new, higher production guidance assumes the sale of 2,500 to 3,500 BOE per day of gas weighted production from non-core properties in Canada that we expect to close in the fourth quarter.

    Excerpts from Today's Motley Article:

    Now would be as good a time as any for companies to get on with it and make a deal. The M&A market has boomed this year, reaching levels not seen since before the financial crisis.

    Chevron (NYSE: CVX ) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM ) are likely to be doing the bidding as both behemoths had net debt-to-equity ratios of less than 10% at the end of the first quarter. Each had tens of billions available to complete any deal.

    So which companies would fit best in their portfolios?

    First, there's Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO ) . Marathon is a pure domestic U.S. play, which would work well with Chevron, one of the largest domestic oil producers. Marathon would be a good bolt-on addition to ExxonMobil as well, which after the acquisition of XTO is still overweight in domestic gas.

    Further, the company's small size and attractive portfolio would make it a tasty bite for any major.

    Over the past few years, Marathon has been reducing its international exposure and is instead focusing on domestic plays. The company has acreage within the Bakken, Oklahoma, and the Eagle Ford. In total, Marathon has 2.4 billion barrels of resources available to it and 4,500 well locations.

    The company does still have some international operations, however. These include prospects offshore Africa, the Gulf of Mexico, and Iraqi Kurdistan. That said, around 60% of the company's production is domestic.

    Nevertheless, it's Marathon's size that makes the company attractive. Marathon reported production of 483,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at the end of 2013, around 10% of Exxon's current daily production and 20% of Chevron's.

    Moreover, the company's current market capitalization is only around $27 billion. This means that either Chevron or ExxonMobil could acquire Marathon for less than their annual capex budgets and add a double-digit boost to production.
