EOG Resources is without question the largest horizontal oil producer in the United States. It's an excellent company for an investor to be a part of, with major stakes in both the Eagle Ford and the Bakken regions, two of the most rapidly growing production areas for oil and natural gas in the country. But, at its current multiple, is it really the best buy for an investor in this space right now?
