  • Interesting that the drops (though significant) are only in the 5-10 point range. Bad but not horrible since this has been a weak energy market recently anyway. Thanks for doing this. Very interesting to see graphed.

  • Curious how the CVX prices drops would match up in timing to some energy tracking stocks or ETFs? Do you have anything like that? Maybe CVX didn't just react to the decisions but also to this very weak energy market? As I am only speculating I really don't have any idea.

  • Author’s reply » Not something I have looked at yet, but will probably do so to see what the correlation is to broader energy markets. Interesting suggestion, Thanks.
