One company that has garnered loads of attention this year in the energy space is EOG Resources , and with good reason. The company has posted oil production growth of better than 45% per year for three years running. But one company that hasn't garnered as much attention but could potentially have an EOG-type run in it is Devon Energy . That is why Devon made our list of favorite energy stocks. 

The recent deals by Devon with both Crosstex Energy and private company Geosouthern go to show something: Devon Energy is undervalued compared to today's other big time shale players. Tune into the video below to find out how Devon Energy stacks up against EOG Resources and why Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe put Devon on top of his list.
