In this video, Motley Fool Energy Analyst Joel South takes a look at a newer player in the oil sector, Magnum Hunter Resources (NYS: MHR) , and what we can take away about the company after its Q3 conference call today. Although the company did miss its earnings per share estimate, the more important measure is revenue and production growth, both of which came in strong this quarter. South takes us through these numbers and tells us about the potential he sees here.

Another dynamic growth story in this exciting sector these days is Kodiak Oil & but, as every energy investor knows, with great opportunities come great risks. Before you hitch your horse to this carriage, let us help you with your due diligence.
