Canadian energy stocks rose with oil and gas prices, with analysts tagging along for the ride. "[Buy] with reckless abandon," urged Desjardins analysts Justin Bouchard and Chris MacCulloch, as they updated their commodity price forecasts to reflect the "fever pitch" in energy markets. Some of the stocks they singled out were Athabasca Oil Corp. (ATH: $0.97), with a revised price target of $1.25 instead of 85 cents, Crew Energy Inc. (CR: $3.41), with a target of $4 instead of $2.25, and Tourmaline Oil Corp. (TOU: $45.78), with a target of $70 instead of $52.
Mr. Bouchard and Mr. MacCulloch were not the only excitable analysts.
