Eagle & Beagle

Eagle

Rather than the usual bird chatter, we're going to use a horse analogy to pay tribute to three local energy companies that had a good run last week.

Our winner, PostRock Energy Corp., posted a nearly 10 percent gain to bounce back strongly from beagle status in the previous week. Volume remains uneven for shares of PSTR, which closed Friday at $1.56.

In the place position was Gulfport Energy, which showed late speed to hit the wire with a nearly 7 percent gain. GPOR closed Friday at $63.08. In the process, the stock set a new 52-week high during Friday's trading.

Showing was Continental Resources, shares of which added more than $5 over the past five trading days. The oil-producing giant sits just shy of $100 per share, and CLR was within a nose of reaching that round number while setting a new 52-week high of $99.66 on Friday.

So the state produced a bona fide stakes winner, a solid claimer and a raw maiden last week. The windows will be open again on Monday.
