Oil has continued its remarkable rise this year, rallying another 10%, to more than $65 a barrel in the U.S. That rebound has taken most oil stocks up with it. However, a handful managed to lose ground this year, including Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI), Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), and Cimarex Energy (NYSE:XEC), which are all down double digits. That sell-off makes them worth a closer look.

Several well-respected oil CEOs have made it clear that they have no appetite for making a big acquisition, even though oil prices have improved dramatically. However, not all companies are against mergers and acquisitions (M&A). Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) made waves earlier this year when it acquired RSP Permian (NYSE:RSPP) in a $9.5 billion deal. Concho CEO Tim Leach even saw his company’s transaction as a “roadmap for in-basin consolidation” in the Permian. While it has yet to set off an M&A boom, that doesn’t mean transaction activity won’t heat up.
