The droopiest Oklahoma stock was one we have seen here before. Apco Oil & Gas International slipped 9.4 percent to close Friday at $16.09. That's less than $1 from the 52-week low for APAGF.

Apco, based in Tulsa, operates in Venezuela and Columbia and has suffered from political unrest as the government in Venezuela seized a European energy operation earlier this year. That action immediately put downward pressure on Apco's shares.

While management has sought to ease fears about the situation, the stock price has plummeted 80 percent this year. That despite the company producing sharply higher profits in the most recent quarter.

Eagle & Beagle is a weekly look at the state's high-performing (eagle) and low-performing (beagle) stocks by Business Writer Don Mecoy.
