Tracking the stock price of BP PLC

June 4, 2010

Given the events of the last few months, you may want to track BP’s stock price over time and see just how far it has fallen.  Luckily, you can easily do so with the Stock Quote Service.  You can find links to the service on the site map, as well as on tabs like the Company Information tab. 

Once there, just put BP into the ticker field and click “Next.”  Then choose “Pricing History” and the time frame (daily works well for fast moving stocks like BP).  Choose your start and end dates (I suggest April 19 for a start date, the day before the oil well blowout on the Deepwater rig). 

Click “Next” and you’ll get a chart that starts like this:
