Still suffering from negative PR due to Gulf spill fiasco a few years back. Even though the company was forced to cut its dividend, it still stands pretty high at 4.6%, and trades at a humble sub-8 P/E. With relatively low levels of institutional ownership (~11%), a low payout ratio (sub 30%), the company has a lot of room to grow its dividend and plenty of runway for when institutions quit being spooked by the company name. Not to mention the fact that the company itself operates in a famously lucrative industry with growing demand. Long-term winner.
