Deal failures and their consequences in the mining industry vs. environmental catastrophes
After this post showing the share values at 5 years for Hess Corp.,ConocoPhillips, Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR),Chevron Corporation and BP plc (ADR) some of our careful reader have commented that we forgot Exxon as a major oil company.

Indeed if we graph the previous companies including Exxon we see that both BP and Exxon`share have stagnated in the last 5 years.
Share of Exxon Mobil Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Hess Corp., BP plc (ADR), Chevron Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) over 10 years.
