Very nice write-up, but you're wrong about it being the top performing stock this year in the exploration and production sector. I know for a fact that at least SSN has outperformed it. VYOG may win out by the end of the year, but currently there's at least one that has outperformed it.

Note - the ticker symbol is supposed to be VYOG, however, to add it to CAPS the symbol is VOYG.OB. I have seen it listed both ways on Yahoo so you might have to try both to find it!

Co has also spud 3 gross Niobrara wells in 2011 targeting the Niobrara formation. Currently, 1.72 net Bakken/Three Forks wells are drilling, completing or producing and 2.5 net Niobrara wells are producing or waiting on completion. Co expects to participate in 70 gross wells and 6.0 net wells in 2011 targeting the Bakken/Three Forks. Based on our current and forecasted drilling activity, co expects to average 700 barrels of oil equivalent "BOE" per day by the end of 2011. This drilling and production guidance is in line with previous estimates. In 2011 co expects to spend $42 mln in drilling capital expenditures targeting the Bakken and Three Forks. Co expects to devote the additional capital to strategic acreage acquisition targeting the Bakken and Three Forks using cash-on-hand of ~$47 mln and cash flow from operations.
