Three Ideas for Energy Investors to Look Into

I have three quick ideas for today’s column, with the hope that one of them will resonate with you.  Next week is my vacation week, so I hope that you will stay out of trouble until I can be with you again in the week of March 2nd. (We have a very interesting guest writer lined up for you though.)

First, Linn Energy (LINE), a core holding of mine, today bought Berry Energy (BRY) in an all stock deal, paying a 19% premium and more than the Reuters estimate of intrinsic value for the company.  In spite of all this, Linn shares are UP almost 5% this morning, not what you’d expect for a company that is supposedly overpaying for a target.  That’s how you know that Linn has been massively undervalued by the Street and deserves investment, even more so now.
