Over the next couple of weeks John and David will be reviewing their real-money, 10-Bagger Portfolio. In this video, they take a closer look at ExxonMobil.

Despite some near-term challenges, ExxonMobil remains one of the best-managed energy companies in the world, and it's committed to returning capital to shareholders. Its latest quarterly results were surprisingly weak operationally. But the company has a diverse portfolio of global investments that will power earnings, and cash flow over the long term. Domestic natural gas continues to be a weakness, as prices remain low. Producers like Chesapeake Energy and Exco Resources are still feeling the stress. Competitor Devon Energy has made a big shift from gas to liquids as a result. What ExxonMobil has in its favor is that it's a diversified energy company. That's what helps the company generate so much cash flow that it can pay shareholders in the form of dividends and repurchases.

There are many different ways to play the energy sector, and our analysts have uncovered an under-the-radar company that's dominating its industry. This company is a leading provider of equipment and components used in  drilling and production operations, and poised to profit in a big way from it.
