What Drives Oil and Gas Company Stock Prices?

2631218321_5d41567b4f_bVolatility in oil and gas company stocks has skyrocketed since the market crash in 2008, on the back of even more volatile oil and gas prices. Over the same period, concerns over the availability and negative environmental consequences of nonrenewable energy resources have compounded on the price volatility to elevate the opinions of critics of the oil and gas industry into a national discussion about the sustainability of the industry. As such, many states have passed policies that promote the use of alternative energy, including state Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), which require that a fraction of energy consumption must come from renewable energy sources, and the Production Tax Credit, a federal subsidy for wind farm production. The recent changes in our attitudes towards oil and gas companies raises the question of whether changes have introduced new risk to the value of these companies, such that it impacts the stock price of nonrenewable energy companies.

The study, “, ” analyzed daily observations from a sample of 64 oil and gas companies from July 15, 2003 to August 14, 2012 to determine the factors affecting equity returns for publicly traded nonrenewable energy companies, and the effect of these factors on value at risk (a technique to assess the level of financial risk of a specific portfolio over a defined period) for those companies.

Daily value at risk in the oil and gas sector increased significantly during the 2008 financial crisis, but notably, it has also remained larger in magnitude since then. The elevated value at risk implies an increase in the expected maximum loss in a given oil and gas portfolio over the same period of time, and is indicative of a drop in market confidence in the oil and gas sector. Interestingly, though, when policymakers moved to limit CO2 concentration to 450 parts per million in November 2012, value at risk increased for a given oil and gas portfolio. As such, energy and environmental policy initiatives increase value at risk in the oil and gas sector.

When is the last day that gas companies in Chicago can disconnect service legally? Where can I find this info? | Yahoo Answers

It sounds like you need your service activated because it was disconnected for non- payment. Unfortunately, that is always legal albeit not nice. Sorry
