4 Energy Stock Stories to Take On the Road

BP (NYSE:BP): Closing price $42.08

During cross-examination on Wednesday, BP executive James Dupree said that the company could have stopped its massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico more quickly if it had constructed a capping stack prior to the blowout. Dupree led BP’s attempts to plug its Macondo well and said engineers did not possess the equipment required to attack that particular well at the time of the blowout, and thus had to come up with several possible solutions “on the fly.” The executive added that it would have been relatively inexpensive for BP to have built a capping stack before the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
