BP’s Corruption Probe Results, DirecTV’s Brazil Buys, and 3 More Hot Stocks

BP (NYSE:BP): Former FBI Director Louis Freeh, tasked with investigating the claims procedures behind BP’s enormous Gulf spill settlement, has found evidence of attempts by senior lawyers working on the program to ”corrupt” the process, The Telegraph reports. Though Freeh said the conduct was improper, unethical, and possibly criminal, and recommended that his report be passed on to the Department of Justice, he did clear claims administrator Patrick Juneau of any wrongdoing, and said the problems he found didn’t warrant the suspension of payments to victims.
