Kevin O'Leary's Top Oil Plays

"For the first time in two years, I'm getting into the energy area.""

"Shark Tank" investor Kevin O'Leary joined the Halftime Report today to share his best investment ideas. One of his most recent plays has been in the energy sector. He's not buying traditional names in the area, instead he's heading to Canadian names.

"For the first time in two years, I'm getting into the energy area." He's buying into the sector by using the Canadian dollar as a hedge following it's recent drop. "I'm buying Canadian dollars, getting a 25% lift in value from 24 months ago, then taking those dollars and buying on the TSX the big large cap Canadian energy names."

What names is he focused? O'Leary says to watch Keyera, Prairie Sky, Whitecap, Suncor and Black Diamond.
