SD - Sandridge Energy
CEO Tom Ward, co-founder of Chesapeake with Aubry McClendon bought 230,000 of his own shares at $50 over the last week. This kind of confidence gave Sandridge a $5 bounce to a new high. SD announced the prior week that Williams had acquired certain assets for $285 million giving Sandridge additional cash for growth. This company appears to be in high growth mode and I want to own it on a pullback.

BTU - Peabody Energy
Joy Global said in an interview last week that there could be a coal shortage this year of 70-100 million tons. Tony Blair said China was building coal fired plants so rapidly that they would out number all the electric generation in Europe within a few years. Coal remains the cheapest alternative for electricity and demand will continue to grow for years to come.
Peabody Energy Corporation (Peabody) is a coal company. During the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company sold 237.8 million tons of coal.
