The Best Ways to Boycott BP?


As anger mounts, people look for ways to punish the company.

As the crisis in the Gulf rages on, anger continues to mount toward BP (BP). Shares of the company are back to near a 52-week low. (Year-to-date, Exxon (XOM) is down 8%, Chevron (CVX) is down 2%, and ConocoPhillips (COP) is up 8%).

In an effort to deflect the growing rage at the situation, US officials have taken to periodically calling BP "British Petroleum," reinforcing the notion that the source of the spill was not an American company.

But calling BP "British" is slightly disingenuous.

Turns out, BP is a truly global company, with relationships and investors from all parts of the world.

So if you're looking to boycott BP, you're going to have to think globally.
