Two years after the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, BP shares are still down by nearly a third but have rebounded 57 percent from their lowest level following the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.
BP shares closed at $60.48 on April 20, 2010, hours before the explosion that killed 11 workers. A day before the second anniversary, the stock closed at $42.50, 30 percent lower.
In the first 100 days after BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion, the company's market cap value plummeted $70.3 billion, or about 59 percent.
While BP and the federal government struggled to stop the estimated 35,000 to 60,000 barrels of oil discharged into the gulf each day, the company's shares hit their lowest level in 14 years, closing at $27.02 on June 25, 2010.
