EV Energy Partners, L.P. Research Report

A good energy company on investors' watch list is the EV Energy Partners, with a
dividend yielding around five percent. The company owns large tracts in some of
the key shale regions in the US. From a neutral rating, analysts upgraded EV
Energy Partners to an outperform rating with a  $63.80  price target on the
stock. While it has only grown its distribution by a nickel since 2009, its
units are up more than 200 percent. The company is looking forward to stronger
Q4 results, which is scheduled to release on  February 21, 2013. Analysts of the
energy industry expect natural gas prices to increase this 2013, rising to
nearly 35 percent. They also see this year to be a busy year for energy
investors, as more asset sales and joint ventures are anticipated so expensive
drilling programs can be funded. The Full Research Report on EV Energy Partners,
L.P. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is

Chevron Corporation Research Report

The Energy Information Administration or EIA said that their Short-Term Energy
Outlook points to a 0.9-million-barrel daily global demand growth this year and
another 1.4-million-barrel daily global demand growth in 2014. The report
suggests that daily global consumption will reach 1.0 million barrels in 2013
and 1.7 million barrels in 2014. With this kind of global outlook, there's no
stopping Chevron Corporation.  North America  and  Europe  are reported to be
the major producers of shale. In terms of security, the anxiety towards terror
attacks is more minimal. The greatest challenge to shale production would
probably be transportation or shipment. Chevron seems to be at an advantage in
terms of its knowledge about the natural gas. As the key player in shale
production, Chevron accounts for most of the shale gas in its homeland. The US
is the biggest market for shale and the second biggest market for crude. The
cheap natural gas is also reported to be bringing back chemical companies in the
US. The Full Research Report on Chevron Corporation  - including full detailed

Total SA Research Report

While Total is also said to be all-set for its exploratory drilling in  Denmark,
the company is still exploring crude reserves in areas where tensions are very
likely to arise. Total is poised toward ambitious explorations programs in  East
Africa. The major oil player is determined to create a regional pipeline which
will transport crude from  South Sudan,  Uganda  and  Kenya. Regardless of
revenue estimates for this particular project, this may cause some distress to
its investors. While Total seems to be increasing its efforts to meet the demand
for crude and shale, the company may need to follow the big leap of Chevron.
But, if Total sees more profitability in its crude production, there may be a
need to greatly invest on security where threats are crystal clear. The Full

JPMorgan Chase & Co. Research Report

Leading global financial services firm JPMorgan Chase & Co. is included in the
large banks that will undergo the annual stress tests that the Federal Reserve
will be finalizing in March. The central bank released "adverse and severely
adverse" global financial market scenarios that will be used to measure how
JPMorgan Chase and large banks would do if the economy and financial markets
experienced a severe downturn. The tests are designed to strengthen banks so
they have enough capital to survive a recession. As one of the world's largest
financial institutions, analysts are confident that JPMorgan Chase would do well
on these tests. On  January 16, 2013, the company reported its performance for
Q4 2012. JPMorgan Chase reported an EPS of  $1.39  on revenues of  $24.4
billion, way beyond expectations of  $1.16. For the whole year of 2012 the
company was up 31 percent, beating the return of the S&P 500. In total, it
earned over  $21 billion. For 2013, the stock is trading at 9 times analysts'
estimates which mean that the company is trading at value levels. With this
performance, analysts see that JPMorgan Chase's earnings per share will continue
to rise and expects that net income will also continue to increase, making this
stock a good buy. The Full Research Report on JPMorgan Chase & Co. - including
full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to

U.S. Bancorp Research Report

U.S. Bancorp is one of the best performers among large-cap banks. Analysts
estimate that the company will earn  $3.25  per share in 2014 and is projected
to generate the highest 2014 ROA among any large-cap bank. U.S. Bancorp's shares
closed at  $33.17  Friday. It has delivered an encouraging Q4 2012 results, with
earnings per share of  75 cents. U.S. Bancorp's strengths can be seen in its
solid management team and the fact that it is considered as one of the high
quality institutions by many investors. As far as earnings are concerned, the
company continues to outperform. Its good performance is primarily due to growth
in revenue as well as positive operating leverage. U.S. Bancorp's lead bank,
U.S. Bank, announced the acquisition of FSV Payment Systems. This deal may
strengthen U.S. Bank's position in the prepaid market, which has been the
company's priority. The merger between U.S. Bank and FSV can provide efficient
end-to-end prepaid programs and services to clients. U.S. Bancorp is scheduled
to release its Q1 2013 earnings on  April 15, 2013. The Full Research Report on
U.S. Bancorp - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:
