The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

David thinks the market is overly pessimistic about SandRidge Energy, a stock he's had his eye on for some time now. He feels that the company's success will depend on unlocking as much value as it can from the Mid-Continent Region. The company is also active in the Permian Central Basin Platform. Ultimately, David is encouraged by the company's optimistic outlook, and feels the market may be missing something here.

Energy stocks, like SandRidge Energy, offer something for all types of investors. Some companies rise and fall with oil prices, while others provide more steady returns over the long haul.
