The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on SandRidge Energy & RAM Energy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - In recent weeks, investors have been focused on oil and gas companies that do not have exposure to Libya and other troubled spots, but stand to benefit from oil's recent spike in price.

What if protests persist in Iran and things get out of hand?" The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Oil and Gas sector and provides research reports on SandRidge Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SD) and RAM Energy Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: RAME). Access to the full company reports can be found at:
