Eagle & Beagle for July 20, 2014.

Don Mecoy: Eagle & Beagle is a weekly look at Oklahoma’s high-performing (eagle) and low-performing (beagle) stocks.
Oklahoman Published: July 20, 2014



This week’s eagle started the week with a bang.

Shares of Panhandle Oil and Gas Inc., an Oklahoma City developer of oil and natural gas properties, opened Monday morning at $59.49, more than $6 higher than its previous close. Trading also was heavy at Monday’s opening bell.

The stock continued to trend upward through the week, setting a new 52-week high of $64.85 on Friday before the closing the week at $64.44.

Those who bought PHX before Monday’s big move notched a robust 21 percent gain last week.
